Easiest of winners .She won going away. Not a large payout but a winner is always good.
I agree .He might be the spoiler.
I just watched it again on replay and I think they bumped . It looked like Divining Rod cut Dortmund off slightly.
Not that it would make a difference for the win but after watching the replay it looked like Divining Rod cut off Dortmund at the top of the stretch and could have been called for interference. No inquiry was posted but I noticed Dortmund taken up a bit during the live race. Did anyone else notice it or see it in the replay?
I agree. I don't think he will get the distance going 1 1/2 miles. His only chance may be an off track at Belmont. I think he will get beat on a dry track.
When the rain came that just sealed the deal. Dortmund had no intention of trying to win the race. His job was strictly to block and keep the rest of the field wide while giving AP clear sailing on the rail which happened. Firing Line had no chance after the bad break or even with a decent break very little chance. The race was for the place after the bad start by Firing Line and the sacrificial ride by Garcia on Dortmund of which he was instructed to do by Baffert.Long shot city for the place.
I hope Materiality starts in the Preakness. He overcame the worst Derby trip of all and still closed ground after basically winning all his races on the engine before the Kentucky.Derby. That effort showed me something special about this horse. Just my opinion.
I bet Firing Line in the Derby and used Materiality in the exactas . Materiality had a horrific trip and still closed some ground to finish 6th after falling back as far as 17th at one point. He could do some damage in the Preakness if he runs which is probably doubtful. This horse has some talent and will be a force to be reckoned with later this season.
I just watched Firing Line run in the Sunland Derby and he ran effortlessly to an easy win. I know the competition wasn't top notch but the fractions were fast and he ran on and had more to spare in the tank in my opinion.
International Star is a must in the underneath exotic wagers in my opinion. I'm not sure he can win it but I won't be leaving this horse out of my ex,tri,and super wagers.
