What’s the thinking here? Charlie, Mandaloun, and Midnight Bourbon running and it looks like HRC should come out on top but did the Belmont take too much out of him?
Read somewhere Pletcher opted for this race for the #1. He could be an interesting one.
It looks to be between Following Sea and HRC but a Runhappy/Speightstown sprinting for 9 furlongs? Maybe just this once lol.
Maybe those two (with MB’s help) will wear each other out and Mandaloun takes it? I’m not betting it but it looks like an interesting race.
That scenario seems likely to me. Should be fun to watch.
Mandaloun gets the win but that was a scary fall. Glad MB and Lopez are okay.
It was rough listening to the ecstatic connections of HRC in the post race interview, only to see him get placed last after the Dq. The horse runs his eyeballs out, every time!
Last I saw everyone came out ok. Bumps and bruises.
