I will toss Tiz the Law from my derby exacta and probably tri 
Horses coming out of Holy Bull are speedies, usually better milers. 

Not sure about Max for Derby.......he's not speedy "enough" but I can see him in Belmont better. 

This race today is 1-1/16th, doesn't tell a whole lot for me, so I will just disregard how it turns out but watch the horses and running styles.

Jackson Bend was my personal fave that year and used him.

He's one of my all time favorites.  For some reason I like the "smaller horses" like him, MTB, etc.

I gave out my picks about a week or 2 ago to some pals here in an email.   Haven't really changed my mind so:  

So I will repeat here:  12, 2, 10, 6  ex box


Good Longshots would be 7 or 11

Your 2 is in form for today and its a good distance for him and should be in the hunt

a longer race I think Maxfield would eat him up, on Maxs return from October I expect the

2 and 12 have the best current form for today. The #1 scratced and would of been a player today imo.

Yes, the "other" Godolphin......had him pencilled in kinda glad he scratched. Makes my ticket cheaper.

You Made Jackson Bend a player for many on here during that time.

I think before he finished 2nd to the Big E if I remember correctly .

I Think the Plan was to scratch one of them and enter the one they thought had the best chance.

a common practice for them

Yes, that was back when we had contests.  Maybe 2 of us should host one.  I'm bad at adding up numbers, but I can sure try.  Maybe in 2021 we can have weekend contests again, or for the BC races.  That would be fun.  

I was also a big Brendan Walsh fan and delighted to see he is finally really in the limelight.

Your 12 was on the rail in the Louisiana Derby and didn't like it like many young horses

and didn't break like he did in earlier races, and fought to get off the rail and came from 12- 14

lengths wide and came hard.  he is in shape . The 2 is scary hype horse. and Asmussen is doing a good job

trying to settle him in the paddock, a long tongue type.

your 12 is 11-1 and my 10 is over bet. I like those odds on your horse.

a little bumping in the stretch 6 coming out the 10 coming in!

you don't care, you hit the tri if you bet it.

 I don't think the 2 liked the tongue tie S A is using on him.
