I hope some of the connections reconsider and we get at least 10 in here.

Owendale also looks like fool's gold in this one for multiple reasons. Looks like they're skipping the race now. Everfast for some of the same reasons.

Interpid Heart is, of course, a half to Commissioner, so he has the goods to get there.

I thought this race actually set up pretty nicely for Owendale (third off the shelf, nice progression from Risen Star to Lexington to Preakness); he just gets a little further back than what I usually like to see in the Belmont.

prep race at 9f or 9.5f owendale maybe.  the horse has no mare stamina to speak of.   getting 12f and hitting trifecta would have been close to impossible for him.  traner knows this. and withdrew from the race

Well it’s a good thing they don’t all pull back based on pedigree or there would be none left lol.

but didn’t he gain a couple of lengths on WoW in the Preakness stretch?  Hmm....

No Game Winner?  I guess they already ran a 12f race, no need to run a 14f race. (jk, he would not be as wide and have as much ground loss).   I thought since I first saw the pedigree, Tacitus had the look.  Has Tossaud and Best in Show in the dam side.  no value there.  Looks like another straight tri bet, no big betting for me.

It’s interesting to look at the winner’s pedigrees and how they change over time...going back to the year after Sarava (16 years) the winner’s sireline was

RAN-RAN-RAN-RAN-API-Int-RAN-RAN-RAN-ND-RAN-API-RAN-API-API-ND (the RAN’s are all actually Mr. P, it’s just easier to type RAN).

I like this race for Tax, unfortunately it’s been awhile since a Turn To finished first.
