If Beholder romps, embarrassing the field by a large margin, sets a record, something like that, there's no way she doesn't get HOY. Unless politics prevail. You go out and beat all the best males in the biggest race of the year, you deserve the award, especially off an unbeaten record. Let in sink in.
I don't care what else happens as long as The Pizza Man wins. I've been a fan of his for the past year, and he always provides a thrill. A belated stretch run cost him the last one but not by much. A good ride none the less. What a hoss!
I'm sure it's been noticed that Madefromlucky hasn't lost once in his last seven races except to AP.
Pretty impressive. (In other words, he's unbeaten when Pharoah-less, 4 for 7, since December.) Texas who?
And he looked so good in the post parade. Heartbreaking. Condolences to his connections. RIP big fella.
Had his head up looking around like a tourist
Second out of four
I think there's always a chance for an upset. It's horse racing. Happens all the time. A win ticket on AP here is just a souvenir . Take the next most likely horse and bet it to show. Then if by some divine (or other) intervention AP runs out, you'll have the biggest price on the board. And then thank the bridge jumpers. Always the best play in these situations, IMHO. Oh sorry, not a handicapping thread. Just cheer AP on. That's what I'll be doing.
The Preakness was a walkover, and the Belmont nearly so. He hasn't really been tested since the Derby. But now, no no one wants to run at him. He's the boss hog. If he takes the lead, he won't be passed. Like GOD (the horse).
Yeah, unless he's stepped on by one of Todd's stable. Oops, I guess that's trolling. And old news. Sorry. Couldn't help myself. But he does have a sizeable portion of the field in this one, and only one chance.
Delaunay wins iowa sprin! By daylight! Congratulations old boy!
