Noble Indy will hit the board. He will. Mark my words.
Marked. Plus, you better move across the street for the day. :)
There's Justify & we can throw a serape over the rest of them.
I'm moving as soon as I hit the big one!!
Yep not bad for BC I would think. I think Justify comes up short if he was to get in the same position Chrome got stuck in.
I think Hofburg will give the big horse all he wants! I still think his Derby was overlooked. Tapit going for 4 of the last 5 Belmont winning offspring. Broodmare sire Touch Gold won the race. I don't expect him to be too far off the pace unless it's ridiculous, which I wouldn't mind seeing.
Justify/Tenfold/Hofburg/Blended Citizen. Exacta Box. Tri Box. If I play that's the way I'm going, cheap.
I may just watch because even though I'd like to beat him, J. on the rail = wire job, IMO.
I'm going to try to beat him on the square. I still think his schedule has to take something out of him. His number in the Preakness was supposedly lower than in the Derby, and he was all out. Sure he looks good breezing, he's running 4 to 5 furlongs at a moderate speed. I think by furlong 10 or 11, he will begin to wilt. If not, then he beats me. It's a hunch, and I hope I get better than 9/2.
I have to admit that I was a bit distressed to hear that he drew the one but it’s been 20 years (Touch Gold) since one was a winning post (thanks Cindy!). http://www.horse-races.net/library/bel-winners.htm
It’ll be interesting to see if they send Indy to the front. That would seem to be his best shot, on the front, but do they try to get in front of Justify? Probably should wait until after the first turn unless they can get right beside him. Does Baffert have Florent try to block Castellano and Indy? This is going to get interesting.
I would expect to see Restoring Hope floating Noble Indy wide
