Was hoping for the big overlay on the East Coast horse. This will help the payout if my Nyquist-Collected exacta comes in.
Is this the first of two tune-ups for another run in the Pacific Classic against California Chrome??!!
I like his post. I like his tactical speed. I like his will to win. I'm sticking with Nyquist as my Derby Bet. Now that speed figure fraud Andy Beyer called Mohaymen a fraud, I'll also be rooting for Mohaymen and Lani.
Andy Beyer's pick is Danzing Candy so I will throw him out. Anyone betting a route race like the Derby using so-called speed figures should be prepared to lose $$$$.
Can't wait to see Tepin take on Solow and the Euros at Ascot!!!!!
Has anyone noticed that Beholder never faced the colts before and never won a a mile and a quarter banfaced defeated the colts, including BC Classic winner Bayern, at a mile and a quarter
Throw out Beyers for route races - otherwise be prepared to lose a lot of money like I did with Beyers. They are obsolete like 8-track cartridges.
Now that the NY rule fiasco is over, can we finally focus on the race? I think the key to the race will be Espinosa and his ability to get good early positioning again and not moving too early. Hopefully, there will not be a repeat of his ride on War Emblem in the Belmont.
The NY Gaming Commission made the right call by consulting with medical professional and then adopting a new rule that makes it clear to everyone what is allowed. Leaving it up to the stewards to decide on a case-by-case basis is too arbirtrary. Hopefully they will get rid of the other so-called unwritten "house rules".
It's pretty clear that the CC owners walk to the beat of their own drums so it wouldn't surprise me if they scratched. And if CC does not run, the loss of TV ratings and revenue (admissions, concessions, merchandise, hotels, etc.) for the NY area would be huge and can not be downplayed.
