I missed the race! But thank God for youtube. Someone had it uploaded within the hour. I think Bode will fizzle out in the Belmont. The question is will I'll have another fizzle out to... I like that he lets it all go and comes up for fourth or fifth at the very tail end of the race.

He is an AMAZING race horse -- and so underrated. He should have been the odds-on favorite, but he has never gotten any respect. He had so much 'kick' at the end that he just might pull off the Belmont. If he pulled up sound and trains good the next 2 1/2 weeks, I'll bet he goes and he will never have good odds again. And, he just might pull it off.

I believe I'll Have Another will easily handle the distance. If you notice at the end of the Derby and the Preakness he is always surging, and if anything I think he would do worse at short distances. He'll just have to hang sort of front-middle and then run down whoever is in front of him.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I, too missed the race-hope I can find it on YouTube. It sure would be nice to have a TC winner!

He made me a nice paycheck at the Kentucky Derby. I bet on the horse that had the closest bloodlines to my sweet Puck. I'm liking this new betting strategy.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I like his lines. His grandsire is Distorted Humor, which is Funny Cide's sire. I think FC would have had it if he wouldn't have gotten a bad trip in the Belmont. He's got bloodlines on his side. Old uncle FC is going to be cheerin' him on!

Haha Puck, he made me and my mom a nice little paycheck too. We put money on him to win and then bet the Trifecta and won that too.

Eh, I don't really think he'll do it. Sure, he's got talent and speed, but it's been a battle to win both races. If the Derby had been another furlong, both Dullahan and Went the Day Well would have overtaken him and he would have finished 3rd at best. Both of those horses are on the roster for the Belmont and Dullahan didn't run in the Preakness, so he'll be fresh.

I also agree with Themacpack up to a point. You just don't see the same quality of TB as you did 30 and 40 years ago. Sure, they're faster, but they just aren't as sturdy and don't have the staying power to race hard and frequently and still win.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
