"Exterminator · I like Mr. Speaker. · 3 days ago · like" I finally hit something at a decent price... Recently I've had terrible handicapping and even worse luck.
Bobby's Kitten
Likes Mr. Speaker / Pornichet / Toast of New York / Sheldon <-- he's actually in this one ;)
Toast of new york
The Euro 3YO have a decided advantage in this race, IMO. 1st-Gailo Chop 2nd-Adelaide 3rd-Toast of New York 4th-Bobby's Kitten.

  • tmallios · Gorgeous morning in Gotham City. Sun is shinning brightly with a nice breeze and hardly any trace of humid air. Should be a perfect day for Racing. Yesterday they had the fence out for almost halfway out. With the rains the past 2 days and the sun baking down on it til later in the afternoon. It should be in excellent condition. · 2305 days ago
  • jonquil · Sounds good to me · 2305 days ago
I'm going with Dance With Fate and Toast of New York
  • FastnFurious · Either Gailo Chop or Adelaide wins this race. Toast of New York is explosive on synthetics, but it's still unclear if he can show that same explosive turn of foot on turf. · 2305 days ago
To the Euro posters if you discussed the following on previous threads , my apologies but i did not follow. I decided to take a closer look at this race. I have a handle on the U.S. Horses,unlike many others on the site. I am not impressed by any of the Americans.Probably and potentially the best of the lot could be Dance with Fate. But his claim to fame came on the Poly and a buried very nice race in the Derby. Contrary to opinions,i am told that a major reason they are running here is the 1 Million Dollar price tag attached to the race. Yet on the Turf,his race was less than Average. Personally this horse will be a stud on the dirt as evidenced by his latest works. As far as the Euros,i do not know how good Toast of NY is,but he is another who is known for his poly races. I will let him prove to me that he is as good or better on the Lawn. He is a pass in my eyes. On paper Adelaide looks to be a superior Race Horse,i have a major issue with him. This will be his 4th race in 54 days and he only will have 2 week turnaround from his last race. Also the Cross Ocean trip will not benefit him. So as good as he looks on paper i will have to pass.Pornichet is another who on paper looks good. My negative on him is the Jockey. Not that i am bashing Ortiz,he is capable. But if this horse were really meant,his normal Jock would of made the trip over here. To put a new jock on for a race of this nature,i never liked that(tis might be nitpicking). Leaves me with 1 horse.Gailo Chop,definately looks the part on paper. My negative on him. No spike(Lasix) as my alter Ego Amino always states. I hate betting horses that run without it. As far as Bobbys Kitten is concerned. At a mile and a quarter,i would not bet him if i were advanced the money to place a bet on him.
Post Positions- 1.) Toast of NY 2.) Sheldon 3.) Bobby's Kitten 4.) Adelaide 5.) Flamboyant 6.) Dance With Fate 7.) Gailo Chop 8.) Pornichet 9.) Mr Speaker 10.) Global View 11.) Gala Award

  • Exterminator · Sheldon is the best named horse in the field. I saw his maiden win on TVG while a guy named Sheldon was fixing my plumbing. · 2307 days ago
  • Euro Trash · tmallios, I never said you thought they were elite. I said that they were not. I just wanted to clarify your statement that Flamboyant was competitive with Gailo Chop. It was just a bit misleading as a statement of fact, as the race was in October of last year and Gailo Chop has progressed since then. I am not taking much interest in these races, but was trying to give some information as I believed you asked at one point. Again, good luck with your friend's horses. I hope they run well. The only horses I am cheering for are the ones that will not be medicated. I realize they are up against it in the US because of that. · 2307 days ago
