Now that the triple crown pressure is gone Romans can do the right thing; give him time off and point him for the summer grass season and Keeneland fall. It's all about he surface!
That was a subpar Belmont with a 96 Beyer. A healthy and sound IHA lays over the field. But, I agree the race has to be run to be definitive. Please do not compare IHA to Dullahan who as never won on a dirt surface and was a complete throw out yesterday. He is a syn - turf horse and that is it!
I agree 100%. UR is a nice gutsy horse and deserves his due, but the explosiveness and determination, not to mention raw talent; of IHA cannot be discounted. All things being equal a repeat of either of the previous 2 runs would have anhialated the Belmont field. Compare UR's race with Redeemed's on Friday, it was no where near as good and Red. Is a nice horse, but no world beater. Too bad the triple crown Karma got us again!
