I gotta say Keen Ice has matured into a very attractive horse, he looked a might handsome in the paddock just now.

I can't believe I'm watching a race where Keen Ice is 6/5.

Gotta give the 3 year old Pavel credit for going mano a mano with Keen Ice although neither could catch Diversify.

Diversify ran a pretty good race. I think the top 3 all did. Although I'm shocked no one went with him early.

You'd think Mario G would know how to race at Belmont by now. What was he waiting for at the 5/16ths pole?? Looked like he intentionally waited for Keen Ice to come up and blind switch him. Awful ride.

But frankly I gave the winner no shot anyway. Nice race by him, and happy for Rick V.

Still looking for a top effort from Pavel in the BC Classic going a legit 2-turns.

Mario being Mario. I figure he must have some really good stuff on J. Paul and Doug.
