Well, if you played a big box, you'd have the exacta and tri.....McPeek's colt won easily, looked good too

Bubble Rock took down the Matron, and will probably join Consumer Spending and Koala Princess in one of the Juvy turf races representing MTR BC Day. Still with a couple long shots tomorrow(On Thin Ice) in the Bourbon and Wednesday(Dressed) in the Jessamine at Keenland.

 On Thin Ice will certainly pay well--those are some great odds for that horse!   
For the Bourbon, I'm going to try Red Danger or Rocket One......also Red Run (AE) if he gets in. 

 

In the Jessamine, I will probably root for Onetheonesandtwos, Queen Judith, Misthaven    
Longshot:  Roughly A Diamond.   
(I  liked Blissful and Haughty but both are AEs and won't get in? Will have to wait and see).

I watched the replay, lone speed wire to wire after sloppy getting out of the gate.

Ka-ching. Nice hit.

He ran good after getting out of that scrum at the start, lots of bumper cars

and the Number 4 got the worst of it. Mcpeek is good with 2 yr olds.

That was a wow 1.08 and change and the field was pretty good. first 6 bunched up

that's lots of speed in a two year old race.  This week I focused on the route races

and that's normal this time of year for me. Keep the MTR's coming, I will miss 

the sprints ,staying focused on routes in this thread. I think this group might

be as good as the the 3 yr old crop, love the change in the breeding trend.

I actually forgot another runner, Slipstream, who will be in the Belmont Futurity today. I think he is trained by Clemente, who has brought him along slowly.

I think Red Ranger and Tiz A Bomb are the likely favorites in the Bourbon. On Thin Ice may have been flattered in his debut by a very slow pace, or compromised by the Kentucky Downs configuration in his last. I don’t know what the real OTI looks like.

In the Jessamine, I think Dressed is a viable long shot from Catalano, coming out of Arlington. MTR has another filly named Koala Princess I really, really like, but she seems to be going to the Cup off a Kentucky Downs win on September 12th. She is trained by Armand Delacour, who is good with turf fillies.

The announcers kind of tried to malign the race because you had all those horses finish close at the finish. This was a stakes race, not some maiden. It is possible that it was a talented, evenly matched group.
