Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

It appears the real winner of the race was Bodexpress! Twitter is hilarious right now, and it's nice to see some mainstream positivity. And I have to give him credit- he switched leads beautifully the whole way around! I do hope they run him in a maiden one of these days... Wow... you aren't kiddin...

I have like WoW since his Lecomte win and I'm glad he got the Preakness win!

Bodeexpress seemed to be having fun out there just doin' his thing!
I'm glad War of Will got a chance to prove himself. I've liked Bodexpress for awhile, he's a free spirit. Some horses can't be tamed.

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

I like Owendale. War of Will looks good too. Improbable...meh...knowing him he'll probably be 2nd or 3rd. Bourbon War looks good with the speed here but no way he'll be 12-1, more like 7-1. There's so many horses in this race capable of a 95-98 Beyer on their best day.

Maximum Security looks like the Derby Favorite unless Omaha Beach or one of the Bafferts picks it up. Horse looks very fast in a not so fast crop.
There is ZERO chance Maximum Security will be the Derby favorite.

Maximum Security is currently the 9-2 favorite.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Maximum Security could go off the favorite. It's very close between four horses so far: Improbable is the 9-2 favorite with Max Sec, Tacitus at 5-1 and Game Winner at 6-1. Roadster has drifted up to 9-1.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Looking at how the race may shape up, I could see Maximum Security 5-wide on the first turn. 1-2 are likely to try and hold those spots, and the 4 and 6 are likely to be up there too. My longshot pick Bodexpress might be 6-wide. The jock with the biggest decision to make will be on Roadster. He's ei...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I just looked over the pp's and after doing so one horse really moved up my list: By My Standards. I had him about 10th on my list. Now he's my 3rd choice behind Roadster and Maximum Security. Off the numbers, it looks like he could win.

Everyone moves in a spot and Bodexpress gets #20. ((Well, everyone that was outside of him.)

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Not the way I wanted it to happen, but I did want Bodexpress to get in. The maiden is the most improving horse in the race, I think maybe he can get a piece at a huge price. They've been training him like he was going to run.

Re: Omaha Beach out!

Very disappointing. He was my second choice and was anxious to see how he'd do. The silver lining for me is that my longshot I wanted to bet to get into the exotics at a big price, Bodexpress will now get his chance. Yes, I know he's a maiden, and I know he and Max. Sec. had it easy last time, but h...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

1. Roadster--he's good and getting better. 2. Omaha Beach--fast, improving and a good head. 3. Maximum Security--fast but will need to rate because he won't get that pace this time. 4. Bodexpress--the most improved horse in the race; could shock the world. 5. Owendale--bounced back and looked good l...

Re: Santa Anita Derby

I'd have given you 20-1 on Roadster at the half-mile pole. I wouldn't count Game Winner out in a month--according to DRF, Baffert said he wasn't fully cranked; he didn't need to be. I don't know how his grinding style will play in the Derby but he'll finish. Liked that neither Baffert jockey was tr...
