Well if that was Baffert trying to get Hozier in he didn’t do a very good job of it lol.

Yeah I was wrong about that.......but it's just as well.  Hozier would be a toss if he got into the gate.

One of them really should have blinked.  They both would have been better off.

Not sure he really ever did anything.  I can’t figure out what Jo-El was trying to prove though on CT.  Surely they knew CR was going to try to stay in front this time.  Makes me wonder if he’s really a presser or if he actually needs to be in front.

Agreed.  They went MUCH faster than the Oaklawn Mile group of older horses.  Super Stock took advantage of the tiring front runners, but didn't really finish that fast.  His next race could be an opportunity to improve, 3rd off the rest, and he'll need to, otherwise he'll only finish 6th, imho

Well I was wrong about CT, definitely, but right about Hozier.....I do think BB will still enter Medina Spirit and CT, but I agree with you, CT will not win it.  I hope Caddo does run back in the Derby, he may get an uncontested lead, unless Rock goes with him.....and he could easily last for the super

Brisnet had it exactly right in their Prime Power, Current Class, Average Class Last 3, and Backspeed ratings..........that was the trifecta.


I only played it based on horses who needed a win or place to get into the gate.

On my picks board and a contest elsewhere I was in, 99% had CT as the winner......the Baffert factor is so strong nobody even questions it.  But not one of the oaklawn players had superstock 1st.   A few had him in 2nd.  


I don't think Superstock is going to do much in the Derby.  But I don't see Caddo or CT doing much, either.   I will most likely not use any of them for the win spot.
