What is everyone most looking forward to?

My highlights:
-Rugbyman in the Easy Goer off that super impressive maiden win
-Monomoy Girl vs. Caledonia Road in the Acorn
-a really fun field in the Brooklyn, including old guys Hoppertunity and War Story
-a fantastic field for the Jaipur. Stormy Liberal, Disco Partner, Pure Sensation, Conquest Tsunami!
-big, wide-open fields in the Woody Stephens, Met Mile, and especially the Manhattan. Too bad Yoshida isn't there, but it's a lovely group of horses regardless.

Kudos to NYRA for putting together such a great card. Can't wait!

I'd add to your list the return of Abel Tasman and American Gal in the Phipps!

Robert Bruce is incredibly intriguing to me in the Manhattan. He's still a SH 3yo but was impressive in the Fort Marcy vs. older horses in his first US race.

But I am most looking forward to the mighty 10yo Slim Shadey in the A/OC after the Belmont! He's the favorite, no less.

He had to travel across the ocean to get his butt kicked for half the purse ( at about four times the price ).

The Acorn.

But the Met is my favorite race of all of them. Still lamenting my lacking memorial day, especially when we used to get lucky and have the Phipps AND the Met on one day!

I was looking forward to a fast track and firm turf, but the forecast four days out is afternoon and evening rain. Hoping it changes, as my Suffolk Downs pilgrimage that day will be scrapped otherwise. Watching this great Belmont card possibly decimated by scratches in the New Haven teletheater wasn't how I was planning to spend Saturday.

You can't read into the forecast this far out.

30 minutes east or Belmont and my weather app is showing intermittently cloudy only.

Friday's card also has some interesting races, amongst which I am looking forward to Holy Helena trying to extend her win streak, as well as Her Royal Majesty's homebred running in the Belmont Gold Cup (HRM certainly likes her stayers doesn't she?)
