Oxbow and Paynter were out for full siblings to Tiznow. Much different to the bottom of this years NP.
i like fappiano over g causeway, 2 lines of fappiano in gun runner,
i like scat as the 2nd bms or 3rd bms he needs help, it wasn't causeway as the bms that i like
with that mr p/ s cat nick or fapp/scat; i thought g causeway might be ok there
or 2 lines of storm bird with one s cat or no scat.
tenfold i like the top 3 sire lines mr p/dep min/ api combination with curlin and maybe
giants causeway will pull it off in that spot with s cat , storm bird and married to possibly perfect
in that spot should pass on some stamina. Prince Quillos sons and daughters in a passing position
with round table might be the way to go with this bunch.
one theory could be the year of apollo might be because of a weak bunch..
and its 12f and i like the odds for a fast track . i'm taking a shot, good luck to you to.
back up box, box box, etc
3 of the last 4 belmont winners were p/n all different N' and all Tapit Sires.
keep an eye on that angle.
Anytime I see Rahy(BG) in pedigree's it sours me for the upper echelon dirt races. That said, not sure if this group is upper echelon so it is possible. Even on turf, others a bit better, but not like dirt. Other than a couple direct BG 2nd bms, not much. I'll be using as small bottom filler, but that is it. Thought the 2-3 preak horses sat back as top two dueled on turn and exploited that, and finish not as good as it looked in the end.
Anyone know why many are saying FDB is one of best bred for 12f in the field? I hear some mention Union Rags, but to me that is one of those someone had to win situations after scratches. Got that GC there, That FF historically bottom half, don't see any cozzene predominant in any pedigrees.
Giant's Causeway as a bms is intriguing due to the presence of Pocahontas.
Anyone think that Pletcher might pull a Commissioner with Vino Rosso? Not sure if that'll work with him, as he seems pretty sluggish out of the gate.
Anyone here post or recall the names of 3 Belmont entries with Giants Causeway??
Dogs. Calm down lol. I don’t really remember the discussion but Restoring Hope’s sire is Giant’s Causeway, Free Drop Billy’s broodmare sire is GC, and Tenfold’s second dam’s sire was GC.
Smarty wasn't a P/P/P/P. I didn't list them before but x/x/Giants/x - Free Drop Billy; Giants/x/x/x - Restoring Hope; and x/x/x/x/Giants - Tenfold.
