 I don't find it unusual.

Epicenter held the Title going in: Points, money won, significant races, connections, Post time favorite and ran 2nd.

More often than not; with the exception of the exceptional amount of Trip Cw winners of late; the Derby winner ultimately isn't a Jewel race winner in a next leg or two. We had a rash even first 2 legs like Chrome + Big Brown.

Rematch. NEXT RACE - facing ALL

Pros: If the colt finally has his physical-mental run/game together.

Biting Aggressiveness after race (apology to outsider + pony) head game ready...wants more, wants to be a race horse 

He Won - beat the top 3yr olds, beat the odds, beat under Dog public nay saers and beat me

Cons: Shorter race; no history of 2 in a row with short layoff, winning on more than 1 track

Colt will have the proverbial target not "on his back, On His Front. He a 'closer 

The jocks are riding to force or press Der winner out of his game style and into there's

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.

Just don’t think we are going to see that kind of pace for the Preakness.Overall,Epicenter has shown a consistent body of work.With Rich Strike,we still don’t know if he is horse for course or if he can repeat that performance on another track.I think Leon rode a great race but if you are a stone cold closer in a 20 horse field ,you have to get a perfect trip.

Rich Strike will skip the Preakness per Bloodhorse

Isn't this a slap to the face for the TC series?

These horses can’t race as much as they used to.Pretty sad when you think about it.

It feels like a completely different breed from 30 years ago.
