thanks, Maybe that real Hot day during the Florida Derby had something to do with the real slow late numbers

in that race. I don't know.

This year more than any year I can remember, post position and trip will have a lot more meaning.  Too many of these are so close that being too wide or having a bit of trouble will be difficult to make up.  No one stands that far above.  I've got to hope Rosario gives the wide trip he usually gives me when I need him, and not the practical joke type of ride where he went right to the rail.  EP Front runners more likely to get their trip and avoid the trouble if they can last and keep pace down.  SH on a far post will put him too wide as he was in the BG.  Frenchie will be choking his as usual so you cannot count on the EP.  I think I'll be leaning to the speed horses filling in with some of the later runners, but there as not been a lot of late runners other than Zandon, I'm inclined to toss all those Wood LP figs.  TTB is interesting to me as I liked his race, but have not seen where I think he can translate that to real dirt to be effective.

What do you think the pace will be? I dont see a smoking one by any means. So speed could hold.

I am not expecting a fast pace, mid 47 at most which is why I am leaning to the speedier horses over the others.  That pace will give some a break from what they have been seeing, never losing to the horse they were chasing.  Who will make him chase?
