In January Jack Christopher I liked the best from this group and this will be his first race around 2 turns.
Jack Christopher the only entrant Lasix free.

I remember you liking JC at the beginning of the year.....by a lot.  I do too.  I'll be interested in Taiba's performance under new trainer, Beta Bob :)

Jack Christopher in his 4 sprints has never been more than 1 length behind and no worse than 2nd.

this 9f race I look for him to be close to the front all the way around and show us his class UNTIL

I noticed the Whole field of 8 are all  EP types and JC is chalk 3-2 and Taiba 7-5. That sets up

for some race riding imo and first one to the spot Wins,
Baffert is more than loaded this year, does he have enough help with his Millionaires row.

You're right, and Abarrio may benefit from a pace duel.....he's got Rosario now, may make the difference

WOW!  Cox sure had Cyberknife ready to roll, fast time too......JC pushed, probably too fast fractions for first time around two turns.  Maybe stay shorter in BC Mile?  Hard to imagine Cyberknife as the winner of the Classic, but perhaps he has improved enough?

The track was fast all day and with this group I looked for a fast time like that

Gun Runner exacta from his 1st crop, and JC sat off the hip of a 56 to 1 and was stretched

and his break was average and first time 2 turns was ok, needed a better ride Imo.

I lost him coming out of the gate and have to look at the replay.
