Just watch a video by Christian Hellmers. His questioning will make one want to back off this race or completely pass. BB seems to get horses to run farther than one would expect. Recent uptick in late developers the last few years.
edit to add tonalist was positive on every angle except “O” points in 4th wing of dosage profile
and the rf but he had a 7sx4d some go that far for rf"s.
Thanks! Same to you, of course.
The two horses I'm not using that seem to have garnered some support are Bambino Bravazo who could get a dream trip sitting off Justify & Vino Repole who may get the special Ziti Rigati Marinara. Ha!
I'm going to play small especially after Giacomo commented that I should worry more that Citizen might run like Orson Welles, never mind the relatively swift Citizen Kane.
Like I said to Prince, I'm not itching to play it. Going small & using J. as one of the 4 just for fun.
Thanks, Robm. Blended Citizen (MRP/HYP/ND/BOIS) with no stamina chefs, especially with Langfuhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr is a tough one. Should be interesting since he is from that nick with 9 winners (MRP/ND) or 10 if you want to throw in (MRP/SC) and both Thunder Gulch (MRP/HYP/ND/x) and Sarava (x/HYP/ND/BOIS) previous winners with no stamina chefs.
Tapit/P or Tapit/ND is some concern...he'll need to keep bringing those NP bms with decent dam families.
Interesting bunch...even if the big one doesn't finish it off.
any sire have more than 3 winners of the belmont ?
see if you can learn anything from this for the tapit concern'
8 generation female linebreeding
compare it to the 8 gen male linebreeding and look and note at the 5 gen. pedigree
you know how bad the nor dan /br nick is for the derby, look at something royal and natalma
they are not compatible in the belmont . if hofburg wins he will be the first for this angle.
