I like these recaps with the trainer commentary.  Wish they had the Beyer #s included.  

The best race on the card was Elate/Midnight Bizou battling to the wire.  Definitely got the heart pumping.  

Shancelot might have got caught up in a distance issue of 6.5.  The fade and cut back in distance is a "perfect handicapping angle" right out of Andy Beyers Handicapping manual.   However, throw in Mitole and Imperial Hint and BC Sprint is gonna be a monster of a race.  

The Travers generally gets me excited but was expecting a young up and comer -- ala Arrogate style to take this one.  All the Talking heads said Code of Honor had distance issues -- sometimes I need to mute the commentary on the TV.  

Catalina Cruiser --- what distance is best for him?  He floundered in the BC Mile last year and the 1 1/4 isn't a distance probably is too far.   Also, the Mile is his only loss on the record -- commentary says veered at the start.  New pilot in Prat might be the winning combo.   Dez Bryant is telling me to get my "popcorn ready".  indeed!!!
