Rewatched it, JV misjudged the finish line standing up Early LOL.

enjoyed the splits and the action and Rhythm of Charge It, Nice work out.

The others in the Race didn't deserve their p-urse.

That's a Wow looking at the race as a workout from many, A hand ride with smooth Action,

JV stood up early before the wire, 2nd place Horse Stumbled at the Start, Charge It wins by 23 lengths,

I wonder what number the Race Guru's gave the 2nd place Horse.

I should have noticed this earlier... why is the American Derby suddenly a dirt race? This is one of the races Churchill "stole" from Arlington when they closed that track for good. The American Derby was the local prep for the Secretariat Stakes, so it was a turf race.  

[edited to add]

Oh, their turf course needs time to grow in the roots deeper... ouch...

Roger Attfield commented on it yesterday at Woodbine, the course must have been shit Derby week:

"She's an interesting filly to train and she was unlucky this winter. Churchill was a disaster with that turf course. It's funny really because the jockey that rode her came back and said, you know, she wasn't having it with the turf course, the turf course was too loose, and then it turned out that it wasn't really ready to run."

Wintertrian said...

Am interested to see how longshot Kitodan does in this race.   He can run on synth, turf, and dirt but not sure about dirt at "this" distance.   I do love omni-surface horses, though, like Einstein, they are often just a cut above. Kuchar (uncle mo)  if he remains in condition is a pretty formidable colt, IMHO.  Doesn't give in easily.  Watched him a few times at Oaklawn.   Also like Red Run (Gun Runner) but doesnt seem to be performing up to his breeding.    McLauren Vale and Rattle n Roll will take the $$.   Rattle n' Roll might win this.

Like the chalk, Charge It, in the Dwyer. 

Diddn't play it -- but looks like I was on the money for the ex, tri and superfecta for the American Derby...those were the only horses I liked and they came in..   



And Charge It won the Dwyer.  I would not have played that race anyway, as win would have been chalk, and I had no thoughts on any of the other runners since I didn't see how any other horse could beat him in here. 
 

 

(Didn't see the final odds on McLauren-- Not really a fan of that horse, he's never done anything except win a maiden at SA and an allowance race and is a "fader" and can't get the job done, certainly not against this crowd,nor a horse like Creative Minister either..... but I assumed he would take $$ and be chalk or 2nd chalk. )

Thanks, how do you get that number for 2nd place so fast ?

A one turn Mile takes some of the luster projecting a 2 turn effort at a Classic distance

With JV being the Pilot at Belmont,  Equibase 117 to 78 for 2nd place .

When I saw the name, I assumed it was a turf race as well. When I turned late to see the race and saw them finishing on dirt, I was surprised.
