Agree.
I was hoping he'd say Travers.

He'll be forced into the Travers if Animal doesn't win.

With the horses who come from behind, there is no way to predict who will accept this slop and keep moving forward.

Keeping their faces clean will be the goal of the closing jocks

The real Brilliant Speed was the star of the post parade for whatever it's worth. Looks ready to run through a wall.

Another non-shocking shocker at the Belmont.

You can't win a race at the gate, but you can certainly lose it

I was on Prime Cut. Right idea, wrong horse. Funny thing is that I gave Mayor's Manor the right horse though.

Sunland Park again with a winner of a major G1 3YO race.


Also, another horse Joe Bravo jumped off of. He might need a new agent.

You got that right.

Winner hardly had a spec of mud on his face, and Stay Thirsty had the inside trip.
That Belmont sand is hard to run through when in that condition.

I put my bet up a couple days ago before I realized how rainy it was going to be. Nehro didn't like running in the mud it seems.

That race was nearly impossible to analyze right up to post time. I guess that makes it fun but also frustrating. Congrats to anyone who got money.

^ What do you have?

At least I called Shackleford properly, not once but twice.

I had Prime Cut.

By the way, I know they have to ask the question for the lay person, but still dumb question to Johnny V by Bob Neumeier. And then sounds shocked when Johnny tells him he knew the race was over.

Neumie had a tough day, he also botched the Ali quote.

Johnny has been badly hurt more than once in his career, he probably had a flashback.

Edit -- I didn't understand the other reference. Did you give someone the winner?

Yeah, the guy who runs mayorsmanor.com who I follow on twitter (@mayorNHL). He was looking for a hockey reference to bet on.


Master of Hounds was 10th. Wise guy pick usually blows up.


Good for Jose Valdivia too, who got buried in the SoCal jockey colony.

Looking at it a final time.

Winner and Stay Thirsty were in the clear 2nd and 3rd all the way around, never getting splashed.
Brilliant Speed was clearly the best of the closers as he put in a big run nearing the stretch and continued on gamely. He was broadcasting his readiness in the post parade.
Shackleford needs a much overdue rest.

Be interesting how they now handle Animal Kingdom moving forward.
I think Irwin's announced plan is by the boards as he'll never get top 3rd old that way.

My wife had Ruler on Ice, she bet 6 bucks and won 90.

I put a few bets in throughout the day totaling around 90 and got zip.

Worst part - my 10 cent Super was 1,3,5,6. For a split second when I saw Nehro get up for 4th I thought I had it, then saw no red and realized it was over. Thaaat close to 7 grand, though if Master of Hounds hit it would've "only" been 4 or 5 grand. Still hurts when you manage to beat the favorites but with the wrong horses.

Can anyone find some odds on the Royal Ascot races? Frankel and Goldikova are both running.

Goldikova loses to Canford Cliffs in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot. Strange seeing her lose.

Pants On Fire takes care of business in the Pegasus.


Unrivaled Belle flipped in the paddock and was a late scratch from the Ogden Phipps.


Edit: RT @MichelleTVG: Unrivaled Belle retired because of broken withers sustained when she flipped in the paddock #tvg

Interesting comment by Mott regarding the paddock. She finished in the money in every race but one, first or second 12 times in 14 starts.

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/hor...ory?id=6676664

Quote:
ELMONT, N.Y. -- Unrivaled Belle broke her withers when she fell backward waiting to be saddled for Saturday's Grade 1 Ogden Phipps Handicap at Belmont Park and was subsequently retired from racing, her connections announced early Saturday evening.

Trainer Bill Mott said he guessed immediately that Unrivaled Belle had broken her withers and X-rays taken back at the barn confirmed his suspicions. While Mott said he has had horses return to the races and win following such an injury, there isn't enough time remaining in the year to get Unrivaled Belle back. She was going to be retired at year's end.

"If she were a gelding you'd give her six months off and she'd come back and she'd be fine,'' Mott said. "By the time you give her the time to heal up the year's going to be over. We've had horses do that before, it's not an uncommon injury. I've had horses come back and win races before, I had horses come back and win a stake.''

Unrivaled Belle has been known to be difficult in the paddock and on the track prior to her races. Mott expressed frustration over what he felt was an inordinate amount of time Unrivaled Belle was in the paddock before the tack was brought out.

"It took so long to bring the saddles out, if we came in the paddock and the saddles were there and put the saddle on her I could have handed her over to the pony,'' said Mott, who had made arrangements to have Unrivaled Belle be led out from the paddock to the track first. "We walked and walked, and the longer we walked the more buzzed up she got. It's one thing to wait five minutes, but why should you have to wait any longer than that?''

Unrivaled Belle, a 5-year-old daughter of Unbridled's Song owned and bred by Peter Vegso and Gary Seidler, won 6 of 14 starts, including four stakes, highlighted by last year's Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic victory at Churchill Downs.
