Ha. Darn it, my process of elimination doesn't work when the horses themselves become eliminated. Lol.Quote: FinsRule
Royal Mo is out of the Preakness. I'm still learning toward passing and waiting until the Belmont. They were talking on TVG about all the Derby winners that have won on the lead seem to do fine in the Preakness, and it makes sense. I'll probably just box Always Dreaming and Conquest Mo Money in a small exacta.
I didn't see or hear about him as a two year old, because I wasn't following. Kind of rebelled against him, thought it was ok to count him out after his less than hoped performance this year. Kept it turned off before the Arkansas, but give him respect now. I'm always suspicious of hyped up horses, usually tend to be repelled by them. 1/5, 3/5 horses lose every day many times over, it's good not being a believer playing the inverse. He cannot be counted out.Quote: ronnief
Classic Empire is the horse to beat ! See the pix in winners circle. No, forget the roses, not a speck of mud on the iockeys jersey. CE has won 5 of 8 races. Wheeled in one and dumped jockey. 1st start as 3 year old, he was refusing to train and had foot injury, finished 3rd. Next race Arkansaw Derby, won despite being only second start in 2017. In the Derby he got slammed between 2 horses and knocked down at the start, Had to be urged to be 10and1/2 lengths behind at the 1/4 pole. started to rally wide in stretch, had his run interrupted when bumped and carried out, regrouped and churned on. Still beat 16 horses.
4 or 5 to 1 I hope in Preakness.
