Those are some expensive tickets in comparison to the very small payoffs.
I'm thinking that the new shooters will be kept out of the trifecta again. I'll be using California Chrome over General Arod and Ride on Curlin. I don't think any of the new shooters are battled tested enough against G1 contenders.
I crunched the numbers and did my own Super Screener. These 6 came out on top: Danza, California Chrome, Dance with Fate, Intense Holiday, Ride on Curlin, and Wicked Strong. Borderline under them is General Arod, Wildcat Red, and Commanding Curve.I will be playing the top 6 in various combinations.
I agree. He doesn't fit any of the criteria for Shutty's Super Screener either.
Here's mu Super hi 5--1)Danza 2)California Chrome, 3)Wicked Strong, 4) Ride on Curlin, 5) Dance with Fate, General Arod, Wildcat Red
So that means that (I)ntense Holiday is this year's winner?
Animal Kingdom=Closer, I'll Have Another=Presser/Closer, Orb=Closer. All 3 won. That's why I think California Chrome=Bodemeister for 2nd place. Same running styles.
What do all 3 Kentucky Derby winners have in common from the last 3 years? They all had early pace figures between 76-78 and back speed figures between 97-98 in their last prep race.
I'm not sure that Candy Boy fits your Super Screener Criteria. See rule #3: 3. Derby win contenders must post a BRIS speed rating of at least 102 in one of their final two prep races. Exception: In a race with an anticipated pace meltdown, closers can qualify with a 100 BRIS speed rating (1 1/8 miles distance) posted in one of the final prep races. Note, in those cases in which none of the horses in a Derby field with a pace meltdown set up posted a BRIS Speed Rating of at least 102 in their final prep, drop the final BRIS Speed Rating requirement to 97+ (run at 1 1/8+ distance). Especially if the final prep BRIS Speed Rating was earned on a synthetic surface. Am I wrong or just not understanding correctly?
