1) Big Brown 2) I'll Have Another 3) Smarty Jones 4) Barbaro 5) Funny Cide
I love everyone is calling him the best handicap horse in America, when Fort Larned has yet to run in 2013. GOD better hope Fort Larned doesn't make it to the classic this year, because Fort larned proved he can run much faster early speed figures and fight for the win, which GOD has never done!
I am picking Brown Almighty because he finished 5th in the Smarty Jones with a 5 out of 5 Lung infection still beating horses like Avare. He is going to surprise the field with his huge run!!!
He is extremely talented and will be tough to beat in the guineas, but man are there some great 3YOs in the UK right now. Reckless Abandon, Olympic Glory, Kingsbarns, George Vancouver, Afonso de Souza, Dundonell, Toronado...just to name a few. I cannot wait till they start their season!
Ill take a late charging Flat Out over UE and TCI for the trifecta!
No 1 can? I have a list of at least 7 or 8 horses who can and have 'stopped' the dude!
I think it could go many many ways. I have been impressed with a bunch of these horses at one time or another. My superfecta is: 1 - Bern Identity 2 - Dewey Square 3 - Shanghai Bobby 4 - Frac Daddy
I also agree that Animal Kingdom would of never got by Wise Dan and if he hadn't got a bad trip, Wise Dan would have the World Record for the mile!
I think Dullahan has a chance with the synthetic surface, but I would not even have Royal Delta in my current top 3 Dubai contenders. I think Orfevre, Igugu, and In The Spotlight will all be extremely tough. It sure seems lately Orfevre likes running second so I would go: 1) Igugu 2) Orfevre 3) In The Spotlight 4) Royal Delta 5) Dullahan
