For a G3 Sprint, this event lacks enough early speed to allow #8 - X Y Jet (9-5) to easily go gate-to-wire. A price horse who could blow-up what sets up to be a Chalky Tri is #7 - Rockinn On Bye (15-1).
Overall, the entire card is one of the best at Laurel Park in decades! Giddy-Up!
Geez Joey... that 1 male would be me! Found has made a career out of facing the boys, beat them in winning the most prestigious turf race in the world (l'Arc de Triomphe) and did the same in last years BC Turf (which I picked her as well).
So it's rather unfair to think my female colleagues are picking her solely based on her gender.
But nice observation at that! GL this weekend.
Thanks for the great analysis Laurie. I'm liking Yellow Agate, Sweet Loretta and Valadorna.
Can't help but wonder if Chasing Aces' injury was brought on by that "miss step" when it appeared he ducked in towards the opening in the rail / chute shortly after the start?
Not trying to speak for "Chicken Dinner" but I would think the comment "... I like the way you structure your bets" aka "betting strategy" was because in my 3 bets, I wasn't betting against myself. All 3 had the possibility, if not probability, to be cashed.
Looking at your 3 bets ($36), your best case scenario is ONLY ONE can possibly win. Same with the structure of the second set of 3 wagers you provide... AT BEST you can only cash one of them.
LOL Touche' ... unfortunately, has the goes, "If you don't show up for the wedding (re: Derby), don't come to the funeral (re: Preakness)."
YES! Correction has been made... thanks!
Got it! I stand corrected and have made the correction. Thanks!
I didn't state that only two geldings had won, just pointed out that prior to Funny Cide, Clyde Van Dusen was the previous one. Hence, two geldings in the past 86 years. Thanks for pointing out the others though.
Winner Winner... you are correct sir! Somehow that one slipped by me. Have a good Derby!
