My write ups on Creative Minister and Golden Glider stand and hope they help somebody rather than hinder.
I also like Nest and Rich Strike (not really sure about Rich Strike yet. My main concern is Sonny's ability to ride at Belmont against NY riders who know that track well, no reflection on horse himself)
(5,3,7,4) ex or tri box
GG is based on my penchant for canadian blacktype. Just can't discount Ghostzapper and Baby Zip (2005 Kentucky Broodmare of the Year and a Reine-de-Course), 3rd dam Passing Moon who produced Touch Gold and Canadian TC winner With Approval). Plus he's been at been at BEL the longest, is acclimated, and Casse has won this race. Seems like a good basis for a longshot bomber.
(After I watch the post parade, I may swap out Rich Strike for Mo Don or Barber Road if I see anything untoward, but not sure either has the correct breeding for this)
WeThePeople will be absent from my exactas and trifectas. No surprise there.
Best other longshots of the Day:
R8: I really like Change of Control. Other longshots: Gear Jockey, Filo Di Ariana
R10: Tokyo Gold 30-1
Hamburger helpers for Tri/Super
Race 10 #1 L'imp
Race 8 #8 Scuttlebuzz
The horse math...Prat non winner Friday; 2 thirds. Should win 3 races today.
I noticed that, too, two. Thanks, though. I can't get behind Mo at what seems like a fairly severe underlay. On the other hand, he could be sitting on a move forward, which puts him in the mix for exotics players.
Good luck if you decide to take a shot on the race.
PRAT hasn't hit the board. Through race 5. His math is way off
Anecdotal...perhaps the move from Calf to Greater NY area with family is it
twoshots said...Mo Donegal has also been lasix-free for all of his races, according to the PPs
As a standalone win bet he's too chalky, but in an exotic okay. All I gotta say is he may race boringly, but he's got the prettiest face ever, so I'll enjoy the eye candy!

Finally got 2nd in R6. Irad isn't doing so well either. Lots of 3rds.
Speaking of memories, I was in attendance when Secretariat won the Belmont.....could be one of the most exciting sporting events I have ever witnessed! With pure adrenaline, my friends and I hopped down, uninvited, to the large winner's circle.....I was apparently on national tv jumping up during some pictures, wearing my cowboy hat as the Okie transplant in NY for that weekend. A moment I will never forget!
Awesome experience, man! Thanks for sharing it.
I thought Barber Road looked good in the post parade. I am not using him though.
