He doesn't need to have same late kick as his sire against these slugs.
I like Blamethewinner's mentality. I also liked McCraken losing his last prep. Raise doubts to raise the price. Unbridled and Thunder Gulch lost in the Blue Grass. Blame didn't even run a lick in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. How did things turn out in their next race?
Jared is right. They all have flaws. What matters is what flaws you can live with. I don't need any of this stats mumbo jumbo. I like McCraken and willing to cross out his last race. I want to see a GZ colt win with a Hernandez name in a Derby trophy (and no I'm not Latino). Too bad for another Hernandez in a jail cell.
3 for 3 in Churchill. Blame loved CD, so why not go for a horse with experience there? Irish War Cry and Classic Empire don't impress me one bit. IWC is a poor man's Dortmund with a 13+ closing quarter. Classic Empire might be in my Top 3 but I wouldn't trust him either.
Placing $100 on McCraken. $80 to win. $20 to place. I hope to turn that $100 capital into $700+ of he goes off at 8-1. Pay off my Google Pixel entirely. No exotics for me this year. Just keep it simple. DoorDash money is easy money for me all day. If I lose, oh well. Move on into betting the NBA Playoffs.
