Sweet pick Raes, I thought the field would be more competitive, by far the best in here.
Big challenge next if he goes in the Belmont. Another case of Jumping up before Summer time
for 3 year olds. The way the breeders are changing, I look for more late bloomers going forward
this summer and I hope its a new trend and saying that, I could be wrong and it might be a 3 or 4
the 3 from the Florida Derby run differently and the element problems and 2 of them forwardly placed
in the Derby and Simplification not, Finishing 4th here and Epicenters style with good splits
Suggest to me the first 4 in the Derby got good rides and or good trips or both. they earned It imo
I like it if a horse can run each split 25.40 or faster when they grow into the 9 furlong splits and or part of growing
only one slow Quarter in a race sometimes is needed because of the pace.. Jenny Rees couldn't figure out how to
do Final Quarter times in 8.5f , even 9f races and others not mentioning any names when Dr Romans formula works better and final 12.70 1/8 final and 25.40 final Quarters are more accurate in hundreds and not using fifths and 13 Final 1/8 is a joke.
They used those numbers and struggled because they were not good a math and came up with 13 second final 1.8
and gave up on final q times. and now many use that systemin or 5/16 time or 3/8 time.

I must not be good at it either because I just got RS’ final Q in the Jeff Ruby at 24.99. Of course I didn’t even look at him before the derby so it wouldn’t have mattered.
Dangerous style for the Belmont! If he can set a moderate, fairly uncontested pace, he could easily hit the board!
103 Beyer.If he gets his way on the lead,he could win.
