I thought the morning line odds were a bit weird. Only 30-1 for Tale of Verve? 70-1 is more like it.

i don't care for the 1 post of AP but i think he's the best horse. i would not be suprised if he won by 5 or if he ran up the track honestly. not betting this one

If Victor rides AP as confidently as he rode him today....I can't wait to see the Belmont Stakes:>) TJ

I really think that's the key. I think as long as he doesn't over think the belmont, i think AP has about a 75% chance of winning the race.

I think if he comes out and just says look, I got hte best horse, beat me. I think he SHOULD win. I think that Empire maker in his blood will get him the distance.

As long as he doesn't pull a steward Elliot or start trying to be the smartest jockey in the room or anything

Hi bdw,
I felt Victor got California Chrome beat in the TC because he didn't take the lead....then got in a jackpot behind horses he could have easily outrun early. The last three TC winners I've seen, all took it to them out of the gate in the Preakness and again in the Belmont Stakes. If he rides him the same way....I don't want to mention what we're all thinking....just because:>) TJ

If that horse stays 12f I'll never put up another post.

Frosted even bigger bet in the Belmont, if he doesn't hit the board I might need a place to stay....... :(

The time was really really slow. The coverage really really sucked. I really really am ticked at Tale of Verve.

I really really think that Frosted and Materiality can take American Pharoah in the Belmont.

Agree, geo. I think you have to go back 65 years to find a slower Preakness. Since the Preakness went to 1 3/16 miles in 1925, I think there were only a few dozen slower times in 90 chances. But, better than at least 2 Triple Crown winners is how some would look at it. Not me though. Perhaps the Derby and the Preakness times will put to rest all the hype about this year's crop being exceptional. He is just the best of a perhaps poorer than average crop.

Geo: Don't rule out Keen Ice either.

If there are enough other shooters to mix it up a little I think Am Ph is in trouble. They were gagging coming home and while he was unchallenged, it had to take a lot out of him
