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.

You may be right....every time I watch the replay, I get more and more impressed.  But in his previous 7 races, he only won once.  His other 2 dirt races he lost by a combined 17 lengths.  If this horse was trained by Baffert, we would definitely suspect drugs!

If one looks at his previous races, one thing becomes very clear—he needs a decent pace to run into.  He got it in the derby, but I’m not so sure he would have gotten it in the Preakness.
