Keep repeating yourself long enough and you might start believing it.
I would take Alpha, Gemologist, Union Rags and El Padrino in a head to head prop bet over either of the first two. Bodemeister may be something special, but I don't expect the other two to contend.
Last year we heard this was when AP Warrior, Point Determined, Brother Derek and Sinister Minister led the strongest West Coast group we have ever seen into the Derby. Not sure if any of them ever won another race.
