With Petrov and Royal Mo both at 8-1... American Anthem is sucking up tons of money which isn't surprising, but I wasn't expecting the level of support for Malagacy. Great betting race if you aren't convinced by either of them!

Good on Malagacy. I didn't care for him here but he drew off nicely

Watching Petrov get blocked and jockey trying different lanes 3-4 times to find room......just bummed me out!

In my mind and heart, I'm putting him 2nd........there were 3 noses at the wire for 2nd.

I really thought he would win or place, figured Malagacy was only one who might "get" him.

American Anthem didn't break and threw in the towel almost immediately. Pace ended up a bit softer than expected, Malagacy got a nice trip and took it, as a first impression I'm not terribly interested in any of these going forward but we'll see.

Nice win by Malagacy, while both American Anthem and Royal Mo faded.
Of the runner-up efforts, I think I was most impressed by the big black son of Midnight Lute, Sonneteer. He was pretty far back, but made a nice run to get up for second. Had to try to get up the rail, and the horse outside him really squeezed him. For the colt to still push through was brave and, for what it's worth, had a good gallop-out.

I noticed the 99-1 shot too, was easily second best being squeezed on the rail kept it closer than it should have been, and he galloped out alongside the winner.

I'm not sure any behind him will be in the gate the first Saturday in May, but this was a big thumbs up for Malagacy, especially for a Pletcher horse. He conquered several things in this race: class, distance, and a race not at GP. I was iffy on him for the obvious reasons but he was my sentimental choice, my Mom loves Shackleford.

An 89 BSF for Malagacy in the Rebel. On the plus side he closed the final 1/16th in 6.20, but along with Malagacy's distance pedigree being somewhat of question mark going forward, his conditioner has one winner in what, ~45 KD entrants? My hat's off to him if he goes on to win the KD, but I'll be hard pressed to support him if he's given the usual, mediocre 4f and 5f works leading up to the big race.

I like his female family. Interesting that the connections tried him here given he's yet to win a race but clearly it was worth the ship.
