147th Belmont Stakes Analysis and Selections

The 147th Belmont Stakes is all about American Pharoah's quest to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. American Pharoah backed up his Kentucky Derby victory with a dominating win in the Preakness Stakes. On Saturday American Pharoah will look to make history, but he is facing a tough field. In the Belmont Stakes, American Pharoah's main challenges will come from Frosted and Materiality. Frosted was a very solid fourth in the Kentucky Derby, and is fresh, having skipped the Preakness. Materiality ran sixth in the Kentucky Derby, but had a terrible trip and closed with a flourish in what ended up being an impressive sixth place finish. My Kentucky Derby selection Mubtaahij comes into the race with a decent 8th place finish and has been working steadily coming into the race. 

Pace Scenario 
In the Belmont, I expect American Pharoah to be on the lead. He is the most talented horse in the race and has natural speed. If he breaks well he should be on the lead. Materiality also should be close to the lead, which is his more natural position. The connections of Mubtaahij want him to be closer and I expect him to be closer, sitting right behind the two leaders. Frosted should be closer than he was in the Derby and should be sitting fourth. Madefromlucky who comes off of a victory in the local prep for the Belmont Stakes, the GII Peter Pan Stakes, should be sitting in the fifth. Three long shot closers Keen Ice, Frammento, and Tale of Verve will be far back early, unless one of their riders gets unexpectedly aggressive.

1. #6 Frosted
2. #1 Mubtaahij 
3. #5 American Pharoah 

While I will be rooting for American Pharoah to complete the Triple Crown sweep, I believe the combination of the added distance and a very talented Frosted waiting in the wings will be too much to overcome. American Pharoah is a superstar, but Materiality will be able to track him and pressure him the entire way around the racetrack, and this will cost him the race. Waiting the entire way around the track for him will be Frosted and Mubtaahij, and these will be the two to decide the last furlong of the mile and one half marathon race. Good luck!

140th Preakness Stakes Analysis and Selections

This year's 140th running of the Grade 1 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Racecourse on Saturday features the top three finishers of the Kentucky Derby. Derby winner American Pharaoh will be the heavy favorite as he attempts to win the second leg of the Triple Crown, but it will not be easy. American Pharaoh will face seven opponents including Firing Line, Dortmund, Danzig Moon, and Divining Rod, a fresh face to the Triple Crown. The Preakness is a sixteenth of a mile shorter than the Derby, and only two weeks after the Derby a short turnaround for these horses coming out of the Run for the Roses. 

American Pharaoh drew post position number 1, with his stablemate Dortmund right alongside. While the rail draw is the shortest way around the track, this leaves American Pharaoh susceptible to traffic trouble and pace pressure as the rival jockeys will be able to track his every move. The horse that finished second to American Pharaoh in the Kentucky Derby, Firing Line, drew the far outside post position number 8, and should be able to track both American Pharaoh and Dortmund in the Preakness. Divining Rod is the "new shooter," a horse that did not run in the Kentucky Derby but makes his Triple Crown debut in the Preakness. He is joined by long shots Tale of Verve and Bodhisattva. Divining Rod comes off a powerful victory in the GII Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland and while he needs to step up his game, he could offer a challenge to the top three. Mr. Z could be part of the pace early, but I see no reason that he will make a impact in the Preakness. Dortmund had everything his own way in the Kentucky Derby; an easy lead and could not hold off Firing Line or American Pharaoh.  With a potentially hotter pace, I don’t like Dortmund on Saturday.

Post time for the 140th running of the Preakness is 6:18 where American Pharaoh, with a victory, will look to head to Belmont Park trying to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown. 

1. #8 Firing Line (4-1) 
2. #1 American Pharaoh (4/5)

3. #7 Divining Rod (12-1)

141st Kentucky Derby In-Depth Horse by Horse analysis and selections

The 141st Kentucky Derby is slated to be the deepest and most contentious running of the 1 ¼ miles race in years.  The two favorites will be the superstar American Pharaoh and the undefeated Dortmund, both horses trained by Bob Baffert. Trainer Todd Pletcher starts four horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby led by leading contenders Carpe Diem and MaterialityHe also has outsiders Itsaknockout and Stanford. The race also draws international intrigue by way of the Irish bred Mubtaahij. Trained by the South African Mike De Kock and ridden by Belgium Jockey Christophe Soumillion, Mubtaahij comes off a dominating win in Dubai and has a major chance to contend.  Other top contenders include the talented colts coming off major prep race wins such as International Star, Frosted, and Firing Line. All of this makes this year’s Run for the Roses very intriguing as it runs deep with storylines as well as legitimate talent. Read below for my horse-by-horse analysis. At the very bottom are my top three selections along with my projected pace scenario and threatening long shots.  Good luck and enjoy the 141ST Kentucky Derby! 

1. Ocho Ocho Ocho (50-1)
Ocho Ocho Ocho, trained by Jim Cassidy and ridden by Elvis Trujillo is coming off of a third place finish behind Carpe Diem and Danzig Moon in the GI Toyota Bluegrass at Keeneland. In the Bluegrass Ocho Ocho Ocho, set the pace, pressed every step of the way by Carpe Diem before fading to third. From the rail postposition Ocho Ocho Ocho is expected to go straight to the lead. While Ocho Ocho Ocho is a hard trying colt, I believe this race is too tough for him, and while he may finish mid pack, I do not expect anything better than that.

2. Carpe Diem (8-1)
Carpe Diem, trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Hall of Famer John Velasquez comes into the Kentucky off an impressive victory as the odds on favorite in the GI Toyota Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland.  Prior to that win, Carpe Diem captured the GII Tampa Bay Derby, and was second in the Breeders Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita. Carpe Diem is likely to go off third betting choice off of his impressive record, having never finished worse than second in five career starts. This colt is coming into the race well and has a very adaptable running style. From the second postposition Carpe Diem will have to break well and get a good position behind the main group of leaders. Throughout his career though, Carpe Diem has yet to run a very fast race, and in this year’s Kentucky Derby, a very fast race is going to be required. I think Carpe Diem is a very talented horse and fully expect him to run in the top 5 but I will not have him in my top 3.

3. Materiality (12-1)
Materiality, trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Javier Castellano comes into the Kentucky Derby off a win in the GI Florida Derby where in only his third career start he defeated the much more seasoned Upstart. Materiality, in only three starts has made a rapid ascension from having never started to one of the main contenders in the Run for the Roses.  History is against Materiality as he is attempting to become the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby having never made a start at 2 since Apollo captured the race in 1882. Materiality did not draw particularly well. From the third postposition Materiality will have to be hustled out of the gate to gain position. I believe Materiality is talented but his lack of season combined with being another one of the main speed horses in the race will be too much to overcome for this colt with a bright future.

4. Tencendur (30-1)
Tencendur, is trained by George Weaver and ridden by Manuel Franco. This colts comes off of a second place finish to Frosted in the GI Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. In the Wood, the New York bred colt opened up a three-length lead until Frosted inhaled him in the final sixteenth under mild urging. Tencendur is going to be a large long shot in this year’s Kentucky Derby and is another horse that will likely be close to the pace, and it would seem the task on Saturday is too tall for Tencendur.

5. Danzig Moon (30-1)
            Danzig Moon, trained by Mark Casse and ridden by Julien Leparoux comes into the Kentucky Derby off of a very good second to Carpe Diem in the GI Toyota Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland. In the Bluegrass, Danzig Moon was wide into the first turn and ended up making a sustained rally around the clubhouse turn and through the stretch to power past Ocho Ocho Ocho and pull within a few lengths of Carpe Diem. Danzig Moon looks like a colt that should relish the added distance of the Kentucky Derby, and it seems Danzig Moon has really become the buzz horse at Churchill Downs this week. Reports from Louisville indicate that his gallops and workouts have been very strong. Danzig Moon could end up passing tired horses in the stretch and he has an outside chance to hit the board.

6. Mubtaahij  (20-1)
Mubtaahij, trained by Mike De Kock, and ridden by Christophe Soumillion comes into the Derby off of a spectacular win in the GII UAE Derby at Meydan in Dubai. Mubtaahij began his career in England before being taken to Dubai for the winter where he began to thrive. Since being moved to the dirt by De Kock, this colt has won four of his five starts and seems to be improving with every dirt start. Mubtaahij has already competed in one Triple Crown having danced every dance in the UAE Triple Crown, winning two of the three legs. In the UAE Derby, the final leg, Mubtaahij tracked the leaders, enduring plenty of kick back before exploding outside of rivals to register a dominating victory. The dirt surface at Meydan is supposedly very similar to that of Churchill Downs, which is positive since Mubtaahij was so successful over that surface. I expect Mubtaahij to be mid pack early, before unleashing his trademark kick in the end. The long traveling distance and improved competition are definite question marks regarding this colt, but given his impressive record of racing, he should have a sufficient base of conditioning. Mubtaahij will not only be carrying the hopes of South Africa, and Dubai, but mine as well. He is my top selection to win the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby.

7. El Kabeir (30-1)

8. Dortmund (3-1)
Dortmund, trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Martin Garcia is undefeated in six career starts. The massive colt has defeated every rival that has run against him, but in his last two starts, the GI Santa Anita Derby and the GII San Felipe Stakes, Dortmund has demolished those that have tried. Dortmund will be the second choice in the betting behind his stable mate American Pharaoh, and deservingly so; but Dortmund will not be among my selections. Due to Dortmund’s incredible size, working out a trip capable of winning the Kentucky Derby seems doubtful. In both of his most recent wins Dortmund was given an easy lead. In the Derby, Dortmund will not be on the lead. Dortmund drew just fine and should be relatively close to the pace from his postposition if he breaks well. I still envision Dortmund briefly behind horses and getting dirt in his face, something he has never really done, and for that reason I am leaving Dortmund off of my top selections.

9. Bolo (30-1)
Bolo, trained by Carla Gaines and ridden by Rafael Bejarano comes into the Kentucky Derby off of a third place finish to Dortmund in the GI Santa Anita Derby. Bolo began his career on grass and was very impressive. Since being switched to dirt by Gaines, Bolo has performed well, finishing third in both the GII San Felipe and as mentioned above the Santa Anita Derby. Bolo had excuses as well in both races; coming off a layoff in the San Felipe he may not have fired his best effort, and he was very wide throughout the entirety of the Santa Anita Derby. The problem with Bolo is that his better surface is grass. Bolo will have to be well more than capable on dirt to contend in this year’s Kentucky Derby, and I don’t see that happening.

10. Firing Line (12-1)
Firing Line, trained by Simon Callaghan and ridden by Hall of Famer and multiple Kentucky Derby winning jockey Gary Stevens comes into the Derby off of a dominating performance in the GIII Sunland Derby at Sunland Derby. In the Sunland Derby, Firing Line was an extremely heavy favorite and ran like that, bolting on to an impressive victory. He came in having knocked heads twice, and losing both times narrowly to the undefeated Dortmund. In the GII Robert B. Lewis Stakes, Firing Line actually passed Dortmund in the stretch before Dortmund re-rallied to beat him. Firing Line drew great in the #10 post position as jockey Gary Stevens will be able to judge the pace around him on both sides. I don’t like Firing Line for two reasons, the first being the distance. He is not is bred to run a mile and quarter, and in a field this competitive that will hurt his chances. Secondly, Firing Line is another horse in this race with a lot of early pace, and could be caught in an early pace duel. These combined factors make Firing Line a toss for me on Saturday.

11. Stanford (30-1)

12. International Star (20-1)

13. Itsaknockout (30-1)
Itsaknockout, trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Luis Saez comes into the Kentucky Derby off a dull fourth place finish in the GI Florida Derby.  Prior to that effort, Itsaknockout finished second behind Upstart but was placed first because Upstart interfered with him in the stretch.  Itsaknockout is lightly raced and will be a large long shot, but he clearly disliked the track Florida Derby day, and there should be improvement in this colt, but Saturday is not the day.  While the Derby should set up from him pace wise, I don’t believe he is talented enough to pose a serious threat, and out of the Pletcher quartet he is my third choice.

14. Keen Ice (50-1)
Keen Ice, trained by Dale Romans and ridden by Kent Desormeaux comes into the Kentucky Derby off of a fourth place finish in the GII Louisiana Derby. I believe the Louisiana Derby was the weakest of the major prep races. Keen Ice was not able to hit the board in that race, so I see very little chance that he will be able to make any sort of impact on the Kentucky Derby field. He is a deep closer in a race filled with speed, but there are closers such as Far Right who are more talented. I do not believe Keen Ice will be in contention on Saturday.

15. Frosted (15-1)
Frosted, trained by Kiaran McLaughlin and ridden by Joel Rosario comes in the Kentucky Derby off of an impressive victory at Aqueduct in the GI Wood Memorial. Prior to that, Frosted was a disappointing fourth in the GII Fountain of Youth, and second in GIII Holy Bull Stakes. Frosted, expected to be one of the top three year olds was slightly underwhelming in his first two starts of 2015, especially in the Fountain of Youth. Frosted turned for home with a lead when he did not finish as expected, stopping quickly and ran fourth. Following this effort trainer McLaughlin made changes including a slight throat surgery among other things coming into the Wood Memorial. In the Wood Memorial Frosted was kept out of trouble and under a confident ride, blew by long shot Tencendur.  Frosted was the best horse that day and was never thoroughly asked to run by Rosario. Frosted is extremely talented and if he runs his race will absolutely be right there at the wire. My only worry with Frosted is his mental toughness, and whether the 20-horse field will be intimidating, Frosted drew a great post, as he should be able to settle into a great rhythm.

16. War Story (50-1)
War Story, trained by Tom Amoss and ridden by Joe Talamo comes into the Kentucky Derby off of a disappointing third place effort in the GII Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds. His performance in Louisiana was against a much more inferior group of horses than he will face Saturday. If War Story could not make a legitimate impact in that race, he has very little shot of making one in the Run for the Roses. On top of this, multiple reports out of Churchill Downs indicate he is not training well coming into the race. I want no part of War Story on Saturday.

17. Mr. Z (50-1)
Mr. Z, trained by D. Wayne Lukas and ridden by Ramon Vasquez. Mr. Z enters the Kentucky Derby off of a third place finish to American Pharaoh and Far Right in the GI Arkansas Derby. Mr. Z is the most heavily raced horse in the field having raced 12 times, but he has only finished first one time, in fact he has lost 11 straight races. In all likelihood, Mr. Z will be one of the longest shots on the board. Mr. Z always tries hard but he is unpredictable and under talented in terms of this year’s Kentucky Derby.  He is another one of those long shots that will be contesting the early pace making it even faster. Hopefully Mr. Z doesn’t take a sharp right like he did in the Smarty Jones, but even if he doesn’t, it is unlikely his trip around Churchill Downs on Saturday is successful. All reports out of Churchill Downs indicate Mr. Z is not training well, and I believe that is an indicator of how he will run.

18. American Pharaoh (5-2)
American Pharaoh, trained by Bob Baffert, and ridden by two-time Kentucky Derby winning jockey Victor Espinoza, is a superstar. After being defeated in his career debut, American Pharaoh has been flawless. This colt has won four consecutive graded stakes races since that defeat, all with devastating ease. After being injured slightly towards the end of 2014, which forced him to miss a start in the Breeders Cup Juvenile, American Pharaoh returned in 2015 to dominate both of his starts at Oaklawn Park, the GII Rebel Stakes, and the Grade I Arkansas Derby.  The competition he faced in these races was not stellar, but, the ease and power in which he dominated them was impressive. American Pharaoh is the most talented and exciting horse in the race. From the #18 post American Pharaoh will stay clear of the traffic to his inside, but the possibility is there that he could go very wide into the first turn. Overall though, this is a good draw as he should be in the clear. In a race with a ton of early speed, American Pharaoh could get caught in an early pace battle, which could potentially soften him up in the closing strides of the race. If American Pharaoh is able to win the Derby with the fast at odds as short as 2-1 I will tip my hat to him, but until then I am picking against him to win.

19. Upstart (15-1)
Upstart, trained by Rick Violette and ridden by Jose Ortiz comes into the Derby off of a second place finish to Materiality in the GI Florida Derby at Gulfstream. Upstart, who has never finished worse than third in his career, crossed the wire first in two of his three prep races for the Kentucky Derby. In the GII Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park, Upstart defeated Itsaknockout but was disqualified for interference and placed second.  Upstart was extremely impressive when defeating Frosted in winning the GII Holy Bull Stakes, but was not as visually impressive in either of his next two races. The Gulfstream Park racetrack surface was allegedly very deep both days and Upstart did not seem to handle it as well. I will not have Upstart in my selections.  Although he always runs his race, I think he may be a slight cut below in terms of talent. He also may have peaked a little early when he dominated the Holy Bull. Upstart always tries hard and I expect him to in the Derby, but I don’t think he will have a major impact. The #19 postposition will not help Upstart as he will have to fight to get good position in mid-pack.

20. Far Right (30-1)
            Far Right, trained by Ron Moquett and ridden by hall of famer Mike Smith comes off of a distant second place finish behind American Pharaoh in the GI Arkansas Derby. Prior to that performance, Far Right captured both the Smarty Jones Stakes and the GIII Southwest Stakes.  In a race filled with pace a deep closer like Far Right becomes intriguing. Although he may not be the most talented horse in the race, Far Right will be trying hard late and could pass tired horses in the stretch. Far Right reminds me of Commanding Curve or Golden Soul, as both horses were long shots and rallied late to finish second in the Kentucky Derby in the last two years respectively. While this year’s field is much deeper than previous years, the abundance of speed could allow for Far Right to come charging down the stretch under the Twin spires. Far Right is not in my top three, but he should be highly respected in trifectas and superfectas.  From postposition #20 Far Right should not be affected as he will break and drop back.

141st Kentucky Derby Top 20 List

With the Kentucky Derby just 88 days away, the list of horses injured and off of the Triple Crown trail has begun to grow. Just last week Calculator (#8), Leave the Light On (#11), and the talented sprinter Barbados have been ruled out of Triple Crown contention because of various injuries.

In the Kentucky Derby prep races last week the lightly raced Ocean Knight remained undefeated in a gutsy victory in the Sam F. Davis (GIII) at Tampa Bay Downs and Breeders Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red (#1) made a strong return to the races finishing second in the 7F San Vicente Stakes (GII) to Lord Nelson at San Anita Park.

This coming week features two prep races both worth 10 points to the winner, the GIII Withers Stakes at Aqueduct and the GII Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita which features Dortmund and Firing Line.  Read below to find out my Kentucky Derby Top 20 list.

#1. Texas Red- This big colt by Afleet Alex made his 2015 debut last week sprinting at Santa Anita in the GII San Vicente Stakes, and ended up a very impressive second. Although he did not win his performance off the layoff and not at his optimal distance only strengthened his resume as the #1 horse going forward.

#2. Imperia- The only development since last week regarding this colt is top jockey Mike Smith will climb aboard this colt in the GII Risen Star Stakes (2/21) at the Fair Grounds when Imperia makes his 2015 debut.

#3. Upstart- This Rick Violette trainee ran a monster Beyer Speed Figure number of 105 in his GII Holy Bull win, but he seems to have come out of the race well, and if he improves off that effort he is very dangerous down the road.

#4. Dortmund-  This Bob Baffert trainee make his 2015 debut Saturday in the GII Robert B. Lewis Stakes, and coming off a narrow win at Los Alamitos, where many blamed the tight turns on the close margin of victory, it will be interesting to see how he fairs back at Santa Anita.

#5. American Pharaoh- Another colt trained by Bob Baffert, I have moved American Pharaoh to #5 because in the last week he has returned to the work tab. This could be the most talented colt of his generation, and if everything continues to go well, he will continue to rise.

#6. Frosted- I still believe Frosted is a colt, and he should grow with every start. In his last two starts there have still been signs of him being green, and with a more mature performance he could really put all the pieces together.

#7. Carpe Diem- This is a really nice colt that had a very tough time of it in the Breeders Cup Juvenile, and he actually rallied to defeat Upstart in there. He should only improve with the distance, and a better trip.

#8. Prospect Park- Not even in the Top 20 last week, Prospect Park earned his way onto the list with a very impressive allowance score last week at Santa Anita. He defeated some promising colts and did it nicely, he is expected to try tougher company next time out.

#9. El Kabeir- He is the big name in this week's Withers Stakes (GIII) at Aqueduct and should be a pretty heavy favorite. He has matured significantly in his last two starts and it will be interesting if that upward trend continues on Saturday.

#10 Firing Line- He takes on Dortmund Saturday and with an a strong effort could find himself much higher on the list, but for now I want to see another strong effort like the one at Los Alamitos last out.

141st Kentucky Derby Top 20 List

With the Kentucky Derby 95 days away, and the prep races well under way, it is time for my first Kentucky Derby top 20 list. An impressive list of three year old colts are being point to the First Saturday in May, led by 2014 Breeders Cup Juvenile (GI) winner Texas Red, American Pharaoh the Eclipse Award champion, and Upstart a very impressive winner this past weekend, and the undefeated Dortmund. Read below to know my Top 20 horses for the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby.

1. Texas Red- Won the biggest race for 2yo's in 2014 in impressive fashion, love how he covers the ground. The way he dominated last out indicates he is a special colt.

2. Imperia- Fired a strong second in his first try on dirt in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stk (GII) at Churchill Downs. He really should only improve with added dirt experience, and is certainly bred well enough.

3. Upstart- Talented colt could not have been more impressive in saturday's Holy Bull (GII) at Gulfstream Park. He should only improve off that effort and will be extremely dangerous down the road.

4. Dortmund- This undefeated colt for trainer Bob Baffert has done nothing wrong to this point. I am just skeptical of the quality of the Los Alamitos Futurity, in which he needed everything he had to win.

5. Frosted- Stablemate of Imperia has strung together two solid second place finishes in graded company in his last two outings. I believe he is extremely talented and is capable against any of these.

6. American Pharaoh- The 2yo Eclipse Award champion is just getting underway after an injury knocked him out of the Breeders Cup. He would be much higher on this list if not for the injury.

7. Carpe Diem- This horse did not have an easy trip in the Breeders Cup Juvenile (GI) as one of the favorites. He has proven he is talented and this Grade 1 winner is still very much a contender.

8. Calculator- This colt broke his maiden in a stakes race last time out in the Sham Stakes (G3) impressively at Santa Anita. Prior to that he chased American Pharoah and Texas Red around but seemed matured and improved last time out against a relatively weak field.

9. El Kabeir- This John Terranova trainee has improved in his last two winning the Grade II Kentucky Jockey Club Stk. as Churchill and followed that performance up by dominating a weak field in the GII Jerome at Aqueduct. Defeated #2 Imperia at Churchill, but believe it was biased aided.

10. Firing Line- Was just beaten by Dortmund in the Los Alamitos Futurity (GI), and was arguably better. I do want to see him repeat that effort, but he could quickly rise up with a good effort.
