I'm guessing TampaBay will be sunny, fast and firm.
Aqueduct will be cold and ???
Santa Anita chance of showers.

Will you change your picks based on the mud/sealed/frozen/fast/dry conditions?



It's virtually certain to be fast at Aqueduct. Some wet snow on Wednesday, but relatively windy since, and likely to be fast all weekend.

Nine Route would need a scratch to be part of the octo-fecta.

That's only 80 percent.

That is one fine looking colt, whatever the fraction.

Bolt is one very fine looking specimen of a racehorse. If it were based only on physical appearance, it would be difficult to choose between Bolt and Justify.

Mendelssohn won the Patton Stakes at Dundalk in good fashion. Stalked the leader, moved past in the stretch along the rail and also changed to his right lead, which Euro horses don't always do.
