So much speed sets up for closers. Coup de Grace- Myositis Dan exacta.
If there were 10 horses in this race and she had the 7 no one would care. Since when is post position a big deal for a closer? She is just going to sit back and let all of the speed inside of her go. I think Close Hatches is the superior filly however and will win this one.
I don't see this horse winning the Travers. He will most likely be getting pressed by both Wicked Strong and Tonalist and the Saratoga tiring track over a mile and a quarter does not set up well for a speed horse. Also, horses that have come from monmouth and the haskell for the travers have run awful in recent years. The tracks are completely different and it is shown that having a race over the track at Saratoga is a HUGE advantage. Just look at the past few Travers winners. The last 4 have come out of the Jim Dandy, and 6 of the last 8 have. Not to mention, Bafferts horses havent exactly liked Saratoga the last few years either.
Would assume he would take over the Belmont meet also which Durkin always did which does overlap with Churchill
Larry Collmus is the new voice of NYRA
The inside of the track was the place to be all day at Monmouth. Untapable was 3 wide all the way around and Bayern took advantage of the bias. Just look how Albano got up for second coming up the rail. Being wide was to her disadvantage.
What Cali horse will win Travers?
Ballerina at Saratoga on Travers Day
Would love to see her in Coaching Club American Oaks then Travers in next two races. Her against Tonalist would be a great match up.
Kaigun wins this.
