Well unfortunately, he’s not going in the Preakness. I hope it doesn’t have anything to do with the political stuff that come up.

Yes. And the colt is skipping 2nd leg so the stat mention bumps up a notch..

I mentioned didn't think the colt's physiology was ready for a 2 week U turn.

I'm being kind when Dogs says the regular NYRA jockeys have a leg up on the Belmont mile and a half oval.

Kent Desormoux said the horses and the jockeys get lost out there 

I really don't think Rich Strike's closing needs - speed suicide up front suit him in the 2 turner...not even Tina Turner.

Grind it out slowly like D-Tara did.

And WADR..the first time winning rider in a Derby @ stupendous odds and on the lowest point draw in and has ridden colt in all races is.....at a disadvantage in what is his 2nd attempt to win a career graded race 

Not saying they are ducking the Preak..but highly unusual if the colt is sound. The biting could have been the colt found his MOJO and had more kill in the tank. Or distressed. His normal behavior and next day video leans to MOJO not distress.

?Why not go All In ?

on the fair and square the owners kinda proved the early odds in that they say the colt is Not More than Ready

'In the last 25 years, horses that won the derby at over 30-1 that went on to win the Preakness:

Charismatic.  That’s it."

Chris Antley RIP was returning to riding following personal issues and the great Wayne D Lukas sought fit to give him his chance and a leg up ..So did I as key Delta.

As rare as it is, I'm going to disagree with you on this one, Raes.....The morning line should be made as a predictor of the betting public.  I would have bet a rather princely sum :) that RS would not have been the favorite of the betting public.  Whether he should or not is a different issue.  Yes, he won the Derby impressively, but that's a different event, and that alone does not make one a deserving favorite.  His body of work prior was not as impressive as several others, and though they can improve greatly as 3 year olds, Epicenter is also improving and has a style more suited to the Preakness than RS.

Even though he is not running, I doubt that you would take RS over Epi at even odds for finishing better.  I know I certainly wouldn't.  I wouldn't take him over Early Voting either, and probably not the filly.

I hear you, but the way he won the Derby, I would take him in the Preakness. The horse can only win in the races he was entered in. He ran on poly track as he improved, and didn’t get a chance to show what he could do on the dirt until he got on that surface. I don’t think his race was a fluke, or due to the pace. He is as clearly the best horse on that day, and I think he would be just as effective at 9.5f. I guess we will have to wait until the Belmont to see if he’s legit. Then again, that’s a very different race.
