No The C DP has to be higher than the other 4 numbers combined.
That 3 needs to be 22 or more in this instance. Then one could say
Half of 22 =11 that goes on each side of the C, BI= 21,SP =20.
DP = 2-8-3-8-1 (22) DI = 1.10 CD = 0.09
in the real case not Dominate, but for giggles 1/2 of 3 = 1.5 for each side BI 11.5, SP 10.5
The tricky part for low numbers not Dominant is the Placement of the Chefs and who they hooked up with.
Message 125 I miss read the Dp for RR , The C s/be 20 or more not 22 in my example.
Who are they like on the distaff side from the last 20 years?

Rebel’s pedigree isn’t very much like any of the last twenty winners that’s for sure. He has 9 S/P points when the average is 1. His di is 1.10 and cd 0.09. Drosselmeyer holds the records there over the last 20 years with 1.75 and 0.55.
I don't use Points less than 14 , In this case a wash., 10 only points. + -
One could use it because of the part Argentina Pedigree. Thats up to you.
Belmont winner in the first two generations (Sir Winston, Am. Pharoah, Summer Bird, Rags to Riches, Point Given):
Bourbonic (API and Afleet Alex)
Keepmeinmind (Victory Gallop)
Rock Your World (Empire Maker)
Sole Volente had pretty nice numbers.....then you find out from jockey that horse just wasn't getting hold of the track there.
This year, since I cannot see these things in the absence of videos, etc. .... guessing game.
I think the mares give a lot of stamina in the Belmont horses.
