Re: Baffert's Most Talented Trainee

Not intending to hijack the thread as I do find it interesting, what if we try a different trainer, is it any easier to pick the most talented in the barn? English Channel Horse $5,319,028 Ashado Mare $3,931,440 Stopchargingmaria Mare $3,014,000 Honey Ryder Mare $2,879,200 Palace Malice Horse $2,69...

Hoppertunity because he raced past six months and past three, teehee. Then it would be Game On Dude who ran one of the best races you will ever see in the 2014 Big Cap at age 7.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Sparky Ville was a good bet today with Rosario up. He gave Mucho Gusto a good test in the Bob Hope. He was also dusted by ten lengths by Instagrand in the Best Pal. He's a good horse but not really a Derby prospect. But nothing in here was.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Out of the Baffert barn I like Improbable the most. Of the maidens it's close between Omaha Beach and Nolo Contesto. Personally I like Omaha Beach. Hidden Scroll was brilliant in his debut but I still really don't like the lack of experience no matter what happened last year. His trainer is an all t...

Tommy John surgery is becoming as common as the tonsillectomy.

Re: Early Belmont race prediction.

I like Tenfold for the win. Noble Indy and Justify hanging in there but getting nosed out for 2nd by Hofburg. Maybe about 3 lengths between 1st to 4th. Final time in 2:29.16. Probably sprinkling slightly as the winner comes back to the grandstand.

No Ands, buts, or... ifs about it.

Re: MLB - 2018

Dodgers are going to have to start utilizing some of those talented young arms they never want to trade away. 21 year Caleb Ferguson who has been un-hittable in Oklahoma at least will start against the Pirates tonight. Walker Buehler, 23, already solidly in the rotation. Agree! Serious question.......

Re: Justify

Interesting to hear former jockey now XBTV commentator Rich Migliore comment on one of their segments that he thought that Hofburg was the horse to beat, and that Justify might have trouble with the mile and a half and the deep sandy track at Belmont. Said he would be watching closely to see how he...

Re: Belmont Stakes News & Notes - 2018

Hofburg at 9-2 doesn't interest me at all. He's extremely likely to hit the board though. Tenfold could improve again and I like how he came out of the Preakness. I am leaning his way. And Bravaso will run well. I kind of like Noble Indy to bet across the board. Some kind of 4 horse tri box could p...

Re: Belmont Stakes News & Notes - 2018

The 1 post allows them to race ride and try to lock Justify up inside and behind. Like they did with Chrome in 2014. I'm sure Baffert would have preferred an outside draw. I really don't see anyone near him that has the early speed to pull that off. Although I wouldn't have thought Commissioner woul...
