And, I haven't seen anyone mention that Stay Thirsty was the eighth horse in the Derby that was in the Belmont. And he beat the 7 that were in front of him in the Derby. Guess there's nothing like being at home.
A horse that was not allowed in the Kentucky Derby just beat the first 7 finishers of the Derby. And he came into the race off a loss to a horse (Concealed Identity) that finished 10th in the Preakness. It was a result hardly anyone could have predicted. That's just part of life, and certainly part of horse racing. And it's also part of what makes horse racing great. Often these upsets are fluky, but sometimes horses like Ruler on Ice go on to shine. Time will tell. One more stat. The exacta paid $464 for $1. Not including takeout, that means this exacta was over 500-1 odds. That means that in theory, 2 people out of 1,000 had this exacta correct. So, no, it wasn't an easy result.
horsisars -- shouldn't you be out on a ledge somewhere? Where's your cold Ice/Thirsty exacta?
Not one of these experts was even close.. I think anyone could have made these picks.. Not one person had the courage to go ouside the box.... Funny they call people experts in a sport so unpredictable.. I think you should all be renamed..... people who are at the track alot, but dont know anymore than anyone else.
I hope somebody has the winner! The wet track seems to be favoring Shackleford!
*note to self - never bet Brian Appleton's tips* anyone who doesn't even pick Animal Kingdom in the top three knows nothing about horse racing and betting. I can see reasons to pick other horses to win and in racing nothing is certain. But, based on performance to-date, pedigree, distance, form, etc; anyone who doesn't even pick AK in the money is blind.
