This is a place for friendly and civil discussion of horse racing of all types including handicapping.
Some movement, a bit of intrigue, threw a couple of longshots in at the bottom...
1) Essential Quality
2) Life Is Good
3) Greatest Honour
4) Caddo River
5) Concert Tour
6) Medina Spirit
7) Roman Centurian
11) Hot Rod Charlie
13) Crowded Trade
14) Freedom Fighter
16) Highly Motivated
18) Senor Buscador
20) Soup and Sandwich
Still think Romabauer, The Great One, and Get Her Number have a little chance, but didn't crack the top 20
I think Senor Buscador is off the trail.The Dubai route could be interesting this year as many off the horses that will run in the UAE Derby will have never run on lasix.
Colt just breezed at Sam Houston 3 days ago, so if off TC Trail, then not because he's injured....
Dubai is definitely interesting, but I still doubt it's a path for the Derby winner, so I'm hesitant to list any of the competitors there.
Hey Ozzie, if looking for another possible flyer how about DreamShake? I know only a 6 1/2 f maiden winner but looked great and runs in the San Felipe!!! Should still get good odds on him. North
According to Paulick Report he sustained a mild strain
Colt was already bet down to 20-1, way too low for his accomplishments thus far......the flyer I'll probably take is on Hidden Stash, if he enters the TB Derby. Gets out of the 1 hole, may come back strong....then off to the Blue Grass and the track he's already won at.
Agree 20-1 is way too low. Surprises me

I still like Rombauer. Problem with the preps is that we often do not uncover the true long distance routers, because the prep races are too short.
Then you have the ones who were mismanaged, like Solemini. That one could have been great, IMHO.
