Where is he next? he doesn't have the points.
I think we'll have to declare him off-trail, he's not being listed on any Derby points board even with 23 points.
Supposedly T.Mocc will run in the Swale and Pletcher is advising that he will stay a sprinter.
We'll find out more tomorrow but just wondering if anyone believes in that variant in the El Padrino alw at GP...
I guess we'll find out if Algorithms is for real or just particularly likes sloppy surfaces.
Pletcher had 6 listed in pool 1, Baffert 4 and Asmussen 3, but 2 of those were in field entry.
Hindsight is 20/20, but why didn't he run in the Wood? and yes, this is the worst group of 3yo's ever, it keeps declining every year as all the top shots get injured.
That was an impressive hand ride and I'm looking forward to the rematch with OD in the Special and/or Hopeful.
On paper, Animal Kingdom is the obvious horse to beat, kind of like Mine that Bird, Ice Box, Big Brown, and others that didn't win the Belmont. In fact, 5 of the last 5 Belmont winners were NOT won by the obvious favorite. So we need to look at other options, such as the top 5 LP horses, for example. http://horseracebetwin.com/belmont.htm
On paper there's very little speed aside from Shackleford but will he tire himself out by going too fast, or will Jesus tire him out by trying to prevent him from going too fast? Either option would compromise his chances. Theoretically he goes gate to wire, but we all know it seldom plays out as it looks on paper. http://horseracebetwin.com/belmont.htm
