Preakness stakes is coming up on Saturday and this could be a duplicate of last year.
Nyquist is the best horse he will go off at 3/5 much like Amercian Pharoah did lad year. I think Nyquist will once again sit in second and pounce on the turn. I think he goes early to hold off Exaggaretor and his closing kick. This is not Exaggerators type of race. He is a closer and needs to rate.Nyquist can actually take this wire to wire if he chooses. He has the highest cruising speed and then has another gear, this is why I think he let’s loose earlier this time to get a bigger lead and say catch me if you can. I should put an asterisk here for bad weather which is pretty much a given.
Now, how do you make money on this race? Last year the exacta paid $194.00 with the longest odds on board coming in second. – Tale of Verve – of course Dallas Stewart was the trainer.
You can hope Nyquist loses and has a battle for second or third and try ALL / Nyquist exacts.
You can try triple of All/Nyquist\ALL triple ($1 is $64). Hope anyone beats him .
The track is going to be sloppy with rain forcasted all day, so you may get a horse who can win. Exaggerator loves the slop and he could win if Nyquist does not take to track. He has never raced on a sloppy track.
If Nyquist truly is the best horse he should win no matter what the weather, but I am looking to make money and not a $3.10 winner. I have to hope Nyquist does not take to slop and Exaggerator does.
Triple Exaggerator/ALL/ Nyquist
Exacta ALL/Cherry Wine. And Cherry Wine/ALL
Triple. Box Exaggerator/Cherry Wine/Nyquist
I like Cherry Wine in exotics , he has two good races in slop and the jockey/trainer combo is a lethal one. He has run against good horses before.
BLACK EYED SUSAN
I really like GO MAGGIE GO as she had huge trouble in stretch Derby Day. I think she wins
I would box with LAND OVER SEA. But 2 long shots I like are DOUBLE ENTRNDRE MOMS ON STRIKE
MOMS ON STRIKE had an impressive race last out and horse run best in 3rd race of form cycle, this is her third.
Any improvement and we have bomb for exotics . DOUBLE ENTENDRE is an unknown horse, broke her maiden in a cheap cheap race, but the time was ok. Next race out she was in the slop in a grade 2 race against other horses in here and just held her own pretty much staying 5th all around. Can’t really tell much about her cause the track was sloppy. I like these angles some times.
