I touted Doug and his brother Dennis who buys colts at auction for kid bro clients. These two are related to owners of Hot Rod Charlie. The bros usually in past year Derby quests combine with owner team Reddam of Nyquist - I'll Have Anotther Derby win fame.
Yet my numero uno is EQ with 40 points. HRC 110. Win today by EQ at 100 pointavos* would install him KD point leader. (really wished that HRC was not a known quantity to one day shooter Derby ticket buyers. *Husker I made up this word.
3/5 EQ is a good price if one smokes US machine made cigars. And lights em with free pack of matches.
Ergo, accordingly; and I never could get into when it is said: with that being said...go pick 4 into B Grassy. A Pic 5 would have a 1st leg 5.5 lawn installment with too big a cast. The 7 furlong first leg of the selection fortisimo is wide open..
So who are you including in your pick 4? Are you singling EQ in the BG?
I like the pick 3 into the Wood myself.....will be chalky, but I am playing to Brooklyn Strong, so will get a bit of a price
11th EQ cold
10. 3 4 5 6. Need # 3 for $ticket
9.2356. Vig a spread
8. 2 5 7 9, 12, 13 need fav 13 post not get there + is M/L at 3/1
$48 for 50 cents
Essential Quality looked like he could go around again. They should re-name him Relentless, cuz he was.
Props to Highly Motivated for running such a good race . I should have put him in and I would have had the super high five. Oaklawn is paying better today so......
Loved HM's race.....I look for the same exacta on May 1st, but the other way around :)
for anyone interested, BSFs from Keenland for the big races today: Adn based on trainer comments looks like Weyburn and Crowded Trade won't run in KY Derby. I was hoping Weyburn would get it, talk about a bet against, I had him dead last. .
graded stakes today, all from Mr. Beyer himself: Blue Grass, 97 Madison, 87 Ashland, 89 Shakertown, 105 Commonwealth, 94 Appalachian, 87
Weyburn sounds like a handful. Jerkens says he's not good at adapting to new environments so he's "high maintenance" that way. They might go in the Belmont though.
Right now ,I will take Rombauer to beat both of them.Very impressed with his effort today
I had HM ATB, but I don't think he wants an inch more ground.
Don't know about that, Raes.....he finished quite quickly, about 7 lengths faster than the Wood winner, and by even more compared to the SA winner. 2nd race off the layoff, 1st time around 2 turns, never on Lasix, always with Castellano/Brown.
I had both EQ and HM finishing in 36 and 2.....not only very respectable, but excellent in this crop. We'll see how Concert Tour fares next week, but I like these two right back.
Roman Centurian and Caddo River can qualify if they either beat Concert Tour, or come in 2nd next week....they also have to beat Hozier too :)
