Some of us play exotics in the Derby and The Belmont. I wouldn't discount any horse from Japan.

Besides, 19 American horses in the KY Derby don't do anything every year. :D


As for the Risen Star, I don't play FG very often, and not sure what the weather will be like there, but I like Principe, Noble Indy, High North, and Kentucky Club. Probably do some kind of exacta.

Proven formula.....it's okay to bet Pletcher in the months leading up to May, he wins those races.
With that in mind I'll take NOBLE INDY in the Risen Star.

The 5/1 morning line is a mirage, be careful he doesn't get bet under 5/2 before taking off the rubber band.

Enjoy!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

If they were running on grass in the derby might look at a horse who come over the pond works on the breeder cup but its not. I too play ex, tri and supper and have may a few good hits.

only play today FG race #9 2 with 5/6
GGF race #7 $20.00 straight 7 with 4

all so why is fair grounds a 50 point race and the better race Monday is only 10 points.

FYI, the Japanese Derby prep races are run on dirt, not grass.

Yeah, there's that important fact....and I don't think Japan is considered across the pond, but who am I to quibble:-)

Maybe the Pacific is the Other Pond? ;)
There are Derby points races Across the Atlantic Pond, and I'm really interested to see how Beholder's little half-bro, Mendelssohn, does. It's possible he may end up in the UAE Derby at Meydan on World Cup night.

Mendelssohn Possible for European Kentucky Derby Trail
Mendelssohn, Seahenge, and Threeandfourpence possible for March 1 or March 2 starts.
reeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1T) winner Mendelssohn and two other sophomores in the care of trainer Aidan O'Brien are being considered for the enhanced European Road to the Kentucky Derby track.
Mendelssohn, Seahenge, and Threeandfourpence are all being considered for either the March 1 Kentucky Derby Conditions Race at Kempton Park or the March 2 listed Patton Stakes at Dundalk, according to Coolmore. Closer to these races, O'Brien has said he will decide where each of the horses will start.

I am aware of that just saying horses from over the big pond have done a good job in breeder Cup just ask curlin who kick his as in the classic.

I Believe That if I am correct Japan is not part of North or south america so over the pond fits for me. :ugeek:

TVG didn't show the Risen Star, but I see that Bravaso won. Pretty cool that D. Wayne Lukas, Gary Stevens and Calumet have a possible Derby horse. 8-)

Showed the race on 4NJBetstvg. On computer.
I was also glad that D Wayne could have a horse in the Derby. Gary did not ride him today.
There is also Sporting Chance on Monday, a horse I bet at Saratoga and won the Hopeful.
Lucas always so entertaining and fun with his dry sense of humor.

Thanks for the correction about Bravaso's jock; the Entries on DRF still had Gary as the rider. :roll:
I was a bit confused, because I could have sworn that Gary was riding...and winning on...a bunch of horses at Oaklawn today.

That @_MIGUELMENA_ sure “nose” how to win! BRAVAZO ($44.00) takes the G2 Risen Star Stakes for D. Wayne Lukas & @CalumetFarm in 1:42.95 in a close call with those @KentuckyDerby points on the line.

Much the best of this group. I'm not sure what their plans are for her but she's not nominated to the Triple Crown.

Japanese horses are most definitely, DIRT HORSES. :) That is part of why so many are happy they are starting to meld into N.A. races. Well I can't speak for others, but I am happy about it. :)

She's targeting stakes for turf fillies. I believe the connections had mentioned pointing to the Providencia even before the El Camino Real was run. After that, Keeneland and/or Belmont.
