Who made the M/L for The Belmont? Battaglia again?
Whoever does it for NYRA I would think
We The People 2-1, Skippy 20-1 Nest 8-1 Rich Strike 7-2 Creative Minister 6-1
Mo Donegal 5-2 Golden Glider 20-1 Barber Road 10-1
I think Eric Donovan makes the line at Belmont
So bad, especially for a G1.
The winner of the Peter Pan, with the best speed number, was understandably made the morning line favorite......the fact his body of work was not really deserving, nor that his recent win was on off track notwithstanding
We The People Made the Favorite after 2 back in a g1 race Arkansas beyer of 73 jumps 30 points in a g3 Peter Pan workout
103 against who on a good sealed track at 9f with the worse g1 number in the Whole field.
This was a back speed group of 2 back except for the Derby and Oaks runners including Rich Strike before
his head case prerace. He was lucky to be lone speed and never raced at 2 and no threat to him the first 10 f
by default, I agree he gets points for lone speed and dangerous, Not ML in my view with other g1 type that are 12f type
and tested. finished 4th 7 furlongs back .

Still liking WA. Might change by Sat. Not really like CC but who knows.
CC horse for course at Tampa. I do like No Lasix for CC.
Do you think That is an unlevel playing field in this race coming up?
Sorry not sure what you're asking. Unlevel because CC isn't using lasix? I would say possibly disadvantaged. I think all graded races should be nonlasix. It will take time to get to no meds across the board on all races.
