Belmont Stakes next Sat.
RAIN starting Wednesday through Saturday and late in the day Sat.
This is quite a swing from good and cool weather predicted days earlier.
House jockies have a leg up.
I believe Jun. 20 is the belmont date.
Thanks my amigo.
I really think this will be a money race as NY jockies control the pace. Vertical bet, hope the track is wet. Then goggles will fly producing a crunchy Tri. Super could be nice, while a handsome Tri will suffice.
I thought it was interesting that Arkansas Derby was May 2nd, and Charlatan recorded no works until May 27th.
Thats a long time ....... 25th day to start working after race.
Maxfield’s people are noodling over the Belmont Stakes and the Grade 2 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on July 11 for his next and a 4th in a row win.
Hoofnote: I must confess Tiz the Law is a looker. As a 3 yr old one of the best I've seen. Confirmation, color, carriage, comportment.
2 weeks out from this Saturday. Should be dry and hot.
Regarding no workout and the career end of Baffert trained Charlatan. Agree: AM workouts, even if all are breezes say a lot. True a bullet work on a day with say 60 or more runners is great signal for a runner. But lack of having a horse who needs, just like humans, to get outside, in the sun, stretch and run, have some fun tells a story.
Perhaps the runner is done.
Best always..enjoy the trip (d)
Yeah Yah! The weather news people on TV in NY State are nearly celebrities. The dynamics of weather are so ying yang.
I kinda changed my mind hoping for an aquafied surface.
What's great is, here it is June and Dogs is ramping up for the TC races. Kinda like the TC is like a hot fudge sundae where the cherry is the last thing one eats. And when one thinks about most other sports..the championship or one big game comes at the end of the season run. I'm singing the classic music "September Song"...."And it's a long-long time (from the first Saturday) from May to September.....
Bel Stakes - The Lg Shot Delta key. Best of last 6 months.
