That said, I think the last time I yelled a TV that loudly for a horse in a race I had no money on was Zenyatta's Classic. I didn't think he was going to make it, but he had just enough track. Belmont is going to be interesting, this horse can do it that's for sure.
I limited the tris, thankfully, because I had a temptation to do a 9/7/all, 7/9/all which I'm pretty sure would have resulted in a monetary loss despite the win. The exacta paid better than I expected. Overall, in recent years, the Preakness hasn't produced many shockers, not the level of Giacomo or Sarava. The finish to this year's Preakness reminded me of the stretch of Curlin-Street Sense but that was a loss for some of us.
