Rich Strike would be a good entry for that. He's very much like Vino Rosso to my mind. Plenty of stamina there, similar to Cyberknife.
If it rains, they will be off my ticket for the Travers though.
Remember Travers of 2018, Chad's horses both ran 2nd and 3rd to last. (Gronkowski, Good Magic).
That's a good point to bring up, the Runup at Monmouth at 9f is probably different at Monmouth than at
Saratoga at !0f , and saying that I don't know yet, 6 f in 1.09* for Cyberknife, and with Clay added at Saratoga's deep track
cosmetic adjustment makes this angle a tough angle to compare, especially with different distances, its
kinda unknown in my opinion. The pace in this race is tough to figure on a fast track let alone a off track .
Yes rain changes everything of course. All you can do is look at what is on paper now assuming good conditions. Heck if they have heavy downpours EV may just wire the field by keeping out of the kickback. Hopefully the weather somewhat cooperates and we don't see a lot of scratches.

Gonna be hard to figure out the instructions the jockeys get, and who is going to send. There's gonna be some fake-outs going on here. Everyone will think EV is going to go to the front. I don't think he will. He tried that in the Wood and Jim Dandy. At the increased Travers distance, if he tries that he will be weaving in the stretch like he did in the Preakness. He's a 1-1/8 horse. If they send, he'll never make it to the finish line in a Win. I figure that is why he didn't run in the KY Derby.
On an off track (and I wouldn't play at all in that case) I would have to upgrade Epicenter, Artorius, and Gilded Age (maybe even Rich Strike but probably not)
Has Zandon ever run on an off-track? I don't remember.

I'm guessing you thought I was talking about Early Voting, I was talking about Cyberknife !
Let me know, I better edit my message.
WOW Runup at Monmouth was 55 feet, 90 feet on a slow track at Toga in the Jim dandy 1.12.1 , 1.36. 2 Epicenter 107 bris 9f 1.48.4, 1st 11/2
at Monmouth Cyberknife runup 55 ft. pace 1.09.4, 1.34.1,1.46.1 , 9f 1st by hd, 104 bris.
90 ft runup at Toga didn't help for time 9f 1.48.4 , bris 107, 55 ft runup at monmouth for cyberknife bris 104 on a speed track .
Bris awarded cyberknife a 104 with over 2 second faster time , then Epicenter a 107.
They applied clay to toga yesterday ,if a fast track how does this change the track variant, to compare to the Variant of the tracks
for the 2 prior races. tricky.
Brown has 3 of the 8 entries. US racing at its finest. Gee, I hope none of Chad's horses or jockeys "choke" from the pressure. [duck]
