CMV: Males are genetically predisposed to gambling
Gambling or betting on things seems to be an extremely male-dominated behaviour, especially here in Australia (and we spend the most on gambling per capita worldwide). On a subjective level, almost every one of my male friends and colleagues gambles daily, and social conversations amongst friends often tend to steer towards what's going on in the horses/greyhounds/NRL betting/AFL betting/under-12 disabled Ukrainian volleyball if that's all that's left. Blokes will make bets with each other over things like the coin flip before a game, the exact time of kick off and if a racecaller will say a catchphrase during a race. I believe that part of the reason is that betting advertising has become part of our daily life here. TV ads, radio, print media, social media; literally everywhere you look. They've even managed to seamlessly entwine betting watching sport - every ad break or pre-game show there is a representative from one of the bookmakers showing live odds, tips and gambling strategy. They have TV pop-up ads showing live odds. They even have banner advertising that is cookie-generated so you literally can't escape being marketed to if you're online at all and have looked up a sports result that day. In recent years, gambling ads are now primarily for racing and sports betting rather than, as in the past, for lotteries. On the flip side, none of my female friends or colleagues have any interest in gambling. Quite a few follow sport here but never put any bets on or talk about gambling. Is this because sportsbetting marketing is extremely targeted towards the male demographic? Here in Australia we also spend the most on gambling advertising over all other countries in the world. Our major bookies (Sportsbet, Ladbrokes, Neds, BetEasy) have incredibly male-oriented advertising with TV ads that specifically target men from 18 to 40 - this is obviously their bread and butter market but why? Sports betting advertising often features men standing together, drinking and watching a sporting match. Have a look at some examples of this targeted advertising all showing the single male demographic. Is this due to the fact that sports in general are more popular with men, and this is the reason for the propensity to sports bet? I think men are genetically predisposed to gambling or betting. From an evolutionary point of view, men have been more likely to be competitive with each other in providing for their family/tribe and having the ability to fight for alpha male status. END NOTE: I am not referring to casino gambling. For some reason Casino gambling is a lot more gender equal.

There are 5 graded stakes card and the undercard looks competitive, also, at Churchill Downs. There is also a G1 race for Arabians only but I will not even attempt to pick that race, much less wager on it. The first race is for grass maiden special weights and the last(11th), which is a maiden claiming race, looks mostly likely for an upset. The rest mostly looks like runners that will be highly regarded. Also, I may have a couple of races at Woodbine Saturday and Sunday that I will post if I decide to bet them, including one that will pay handsomely if the horses runs to their bloodlines(their works suggest it is possible, too if you are wondering). Saturday--- CD 1st Race: Maiden Special Weight---- 3 YO & Up--- Purse $95,000--- 5 1/2 Furlongs Turf: My choice to win will be 6)Tohui(20-1). He will be making his first start and has three nice works but none in 4 weeks. However his works were at a training center close by, so they may have been working him but may not have release or recorded any recent activity, which they are not required to with the exception of one recognized work within 2 months of an actual race. His sire is Distorted Humor, who foals I bet often on grass or off tracks. His Dam, Rosee Is Cozee, won 5 races in her career, 3 on TP AWT and 2 grass races and her only stakes placing was a 3rd in the Ky Downs Ladies Turf S. 20 her 22 starts came on AWT tracks and on grass, with 13 being on the board finishes. The other 2 were off the turf races and she did not run a lick in either. Tohui, trainer and part owner, Jurado, also the same with her. One other note, Tohui was sent through 2 sales as a yearling with a $95K reserved and was brought home bought times. However, trainer then went out and found someone interested in a partnership and decided to race him, instead of selling him for less than he thought he was worth. While this does not guarantee a winner(nothing does), it is impressive enough that he thought well enough of the horse to keep him and therefore, worth taking a chance on. 8) A.K. Safari(8-1) is my choice for second. He has started 5 times in his career with 4 starts on grass, including a second, while running against decent horses. His only dirt try was a dull effort against War Of Will. He has had one start this year, an even 5th at GP in February, but is working solidly for this engagement, including 2 bullet works since arriving at CD. Would be no surprise for the win, especially if top choice falters. 4) Life Mission(5-1) is my choice for the third slot. He has started 8 times with 3 seconds and 2 thirds. However, his 2 thirds came in Europe and his 3 seconds all came in listed stakes here in the U.S. All three of his unplacings came against maiden special weights. His sire is Noble Mission, a multiple G1 SW and full brother to Frankel & Bullet Train. His broodmare sire, Johannesburg, was an unbeaten 2 YO champion in Europe & the U.S. but is better known as sire of Scat Daddy. Will not be a maiden for too much longer. Won't overlook. 2)Road To Peace(15-1) is my choice for the fourth spot. He is also a first time starter who has some good works, but, to my surprise, his trainer has a horrible recent record with first time starters, lasix and turf starters. However, he is above average as a trainer over all, including training such notables as Oscar Performance, Heart To Heart, and Grand Arch, among many others. His sire, multiple G1 winner Quality Road and his dam, multiple G1 winner Diplomat Lady, all on dirt but both comes from top siring families of grass runners. In with a good shot to upset. My Bets: WP 6, Ex Box 6-8, Tri Box 4-6-8, .10 Super Box 2-4-6-8, Super Key 6 with 2-4-8 with 2-4-8 with 2-4-8. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Race 2: Maiden Special Weight--- 3 YO & Up Fillies--- Purse $95,000--- 1 Mile: 4) Doll Collection(4-1) is my choice to win. She has started twice with a 3rd place finish as her best effort. But she was checked in the turn on a muddy track and then made up almost 4 lengths in the stretch and the combination of the two probably drained her of energy. While she worked twice in good time before her next effort, that effort suggested that she was indeed low on energy, resulting in a flat performance. Now she has two more works since, also good, but has the pattern I am looking for with the best one first with just an easy breeze to be sure she is fit following, the first time in her career her trainer has followed this pattern. Her sire is Tapit and her dam multiple G1 winner Groupie Doll won back to back runnings of both the Presque Isles Masters S and G1 BC F&M Sprint. But she also ran twice against the boys in the G1 Cigar Mile H, finishing 2nd and then 4th, both immediately after her BC victories. Doll Collection adds blinkers for this test. 6) Champagne Tale(5-1) is my choice for the 2nd spot. She has started six times with a second and a third her only two board finishes. She looked poised to break her maiden late last year but then shipped to OP where she ran 3 even races without hitting the board. I believe she simply did not like the track as it favored speed heavier than I have seen in years. She has 5 works since her last race, 3 very good ones followed by two easier ones to be sure she has retained her conditioning. 3) Web O' Gold(9-2) is my choice for the third spot. She has started 8 times with 5 seconds and a third. All the seconds were last year in six starts. This year she has started twice and finished third one, her last effort and the last 5 efforts was at 1 1/16 miles, which is probably just a tab further than her best distance. While her sire, Hard Spun, had no problem going 1 1/4 miles, so far his foals wants no more than 1 1/8 miles. However, more important, her broodmare sire, Gone West, is notorious for siring sprinters that have trouble carrying their speed even a mile, much less any longer. Bullet work noted since her last, also. After a failed try of adding blinkers, they are being removed for this start. While I think she has a shot at winning, I like my top two better. 10) Templuna(20-1) is my choice for 4th. While there are several who could easily been put in this spot, I like her the best. She has two starts, with her last being an improvement over her first start, though the winner out of that race came back and won a G1 in her second lifetime start with authority. And though the trainer is not well known in Ky, he will win one at the bigger Illinois tracks when you overlook one of his trainees. She has two good works since her last start, indicating she is ready to run her best race yet. My Bets: WP 4, Ex Box 4-6, Tri Box 3-4-6, .10 Super Box 3-4-6-10, Super Key 4 with 3-6-10 with 3-6-10 with 3-6-10. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Race 3: Allowance O/C $80,000---- 3 YO & Up----- Purse $101,000---- 6 1/2 Furlongs: 2) Loose On The Town(4-1) is my choice to win. He has started once this year and only 4 times combined in 2018-19. His only effort this year is even better than it looks on paper as he bobbled at the start, which could not help, but he kept trying throughout the race, though he flatten out in deep stretch, an indication he need the start. However, trainer was apparently pleased with that effort because he gave him 3 maintenance breezes instead of trying to put more speed in him since that effort to maintain his fitness, not to get him fitter, which more often than not backfires on those who believes horses need faster works. A horse can only get so fit, no need to make him leave his best race in a workout, which happens so often. 3) Pete's Play Call(9-2) is my choice for the 2nd spot. He is making his first start of the year but his trainer is actually notorious for being horses back off long layoffs, despite what his recent stat suggest. While this horse is taking a step up in class, his only other choice was either conditioned allowances or to enter in a claiming race for a tag, something he may not have wanted to risk. This is the next condition of the optional claiming levels, also. And like my top choice, this trainer got this horse fit and now has been giving him maintenance breezes while he waits for the right spot to enter. He has worked a total of fifteen times since his last race, so trainer knows he is ready to give his best effort. 7) He Hate Me(15-1) is my choice for the third spot. While he ran third in his last after a winning effort, a signal I now use to help me determine if and when a horse has peaked, he does not fit that angle based off his last race. First, that race was ran in the mud with a finishing time of 109 2/5. Next, he went 6 wide in the turn and lost even more valuable ground. But there are not many who will run down the front running speed that got that big of ahead start on a fast track, much less an off track, without them literally slowing to a crawl, which they didn't. He has started 8 times in his career, so he still has room for improvement with a little more experience. He has five works since his last start, but it is backwards of what I prefer as the works have gotten faster as the race approaches and for this reason, I will put him third, though he could win if top two are not at their best. 6) Mr Crow(4-1) is my choice for fourth. He has ran in the toughest class of all these and would be no surprise for the win. However, he has not indicated, to me at least, that he is in top form, though he is not far off. He has started twice this year and finished third in an effort he definitely needed, then a close fourth in a stakes race that saw him pick up one horse throughout the race in a six horse field and a couple who beat him would be outsiders in here. My Bets: WP 2, Ex Box 2-3, Tri Box 2-3-7, ,10 Super Box 2-3-6-7, Super Key 2 with 3-6-7 with 3-6-7 with 3-6-7. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4th Race: Allowance---- 3 YO & Up F&M---- Purse $97,000--- One And 1/8 Mile Turf: 2) Dalika (4-1) is my choice to win. She started one this year and that was her first start in the U.S. also. She broke slowly and grinded her way closer to the front runners as she fought restraint at one mile on grass. That was a good effort and she has back class. She broke her maiden in a handicap and then ran 2nd in the listed Prix Herod S, both against colts. But she is also the only 3 YO entered in this race, so she will get a small weight break on the weight for age scale. Her sire, Pastorius, is a G1 winning son of Soldier Hollow(a grandson of Sadler's Wells) and her broodmare sire, Hurricane Run, is a G1 winning son of Montjeu(son of Sadler's Wells) and out of a daughter of Surumu, Germany's best distance sire line dating back to the mid 1800's. Bloodlines is there, class is there, and jockey needs to just hold on and enjoy the ride! 7) Bridaled Temper(7-2) is my choice for second. As I was looking at this race, I wanted to put her on top, but since she has 5 second place finishes in her 10 lifetime starts, this is probably the best spot for her. She has started once this year and that was an even effort. However, she seems to be begging for a little more distance as her broodmare sire, Sadler's Wells, has spent his career breeding foals that is only starting to warm up at 1 1/4 mile, especially on grass. But she has to beat a Sadler's Wells inbred in here that will probably get first jump on her and that is probably too much to overcome. 1) Joy Of Treasure (8-1) is my choice for third. He has started three times this year and after breaking his maiden claiming, has tried starter allowance and then condition allowance(the class of this field) at 1 1/2 mile, while finishing mid pack in both. Both starts were good from the experience standpoint and he should be ready to fire his best shot since this will mark his third race after a winning effort. His sire, Kitten's Joy, is yet another grandson of Sadler's Wells and his broodmare sire, Catienus, is a son of Storm Cat. With the cut back in distance, he should be flying late to get a piece. 3) Napier (3-1) is my choice for fourth. She has 2 lifetime starts, the first when she broke her maiden and then her last, when she set the pace in the same conditions as this race, but tired late to finish fourth in her first start against winners. However, she is stretching out another 1/16 mile and there is plenty of other front running speed sign on. Both her sire and broodmare sire are suspect at this distance, but her dam family shows both Nureyev, a 3/4 brother to Sadler's Wells and Nijinsky II, the current last winner of England's TC for 3 YOs in 1970. My Bets: WP 2, Ex Box 2-7, Tri Box 1-2-7, .10 Super Box 1-2-3-7, Super Key 2 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Race 5: Matt Winn S(G3)---- 3 YOs---- Purse $150,000---- 1 And 1/16 Mile: 3) Nolo Contesto (3-1) is my choice to win. He broke his maiden three starts back, beating Omaha Beach in that test, who has not lost since. Then he gets beat twice by Roadster, the last being at a distance that his bloodlines suggests is a little to long for him. His trainer gave him a series of six works since his last start, all to maintain fitness until the last, when he was asked to work a little faster. Since that work has not blazing fast and was his last before this start and heading east, he probably needed to give a little extra effort. But it should have him nicely set up for a solid effort. 4) Knicks Go(5-1) is my choice for the second spot. He is a need the lead type to perform his best and he should be able to accomplish that against these. He has three starts this year which shows he was knocked off form with a huge effort in the BC Juvenile when 2nd. But his last shows he is returning to his best form. He has two works since his last and while not quite the way I would prefer, I still believe it is enough to run big in a rather weak G3 field. 2)Signalman (4-1) is my choice for third. I bet this horse in the Preakness and he did not pick up his feet. As I do with all horses I bet and with longshots that wins, I went back to try to figure out what happen. And then, it hit me. Next time, check the BLOODLINES. He was working solidly for that effort and looked live but his bloodlines was screaming "Not A CHANCE". Others give me grief that I am such a believer in bloodlines. But Signalman's sire, General Quarters, won the G1 Blue Grass S on the all weather surface but his longest win on dirt came in the G3 Sam F Davis S at Tampa Bay. And Signalman's broodmare sire, Trippi, was even worse. His longest win came in the G3 Flamingo S at 1 1/8 mile, but that was because he was the only speed on GP speed favoring track. Even though he won 7 of 14 lifetime starts, no other win was further than 7 furlongs. Actually he got crushed every other time he tried, Now Signalman is shortening back up to 1 1/16 mile which his bloodlines suggests is his longer limit, he is working good still and he catches a fairly weak field. 5) Mr Money (2-1) is my choice for 4th. He is another who I bet in his last race and he came through. However that was at a mile and since that start, his trainer has sped up his works, signaling to me he wants him closer to the lead. And I feel that is a mistake, given his bloodline. His sire, Goldencents, was a champion miler and very speedy. But he, too, won over a mile but only at SA and in that race, the Santa Anita Derby at 1 1/8 mile, he sat behind a horse his trainer knew would tire and was able to hold off a Tapit son. While Tiznow is his broodmare sire, the sire of the 2nd dam is Distorted Humor, another who could not get a mile, much less 1 1/16 mile. If he rates like he has done so far, then you made consider him higher up. But if he doesn't, I hoping he can last for fourth. My Bets: No WP, Ex Box 3-4, Tri Box 2-3-4, No .10 Super Box, Super Key 3 with 2-4-5 with 2-4-5 with 2-4-5. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Race 6: Wise Dan S(G2)--- 3 YO & Up---- Purse $250,000---- 1 1/16 Mile Turf: 10) El Picaro (12-1) is my choice to win. He is making his first start this year and his first in this country. He has won 5 of 7 starts in his native country of Argentina, including the biggest G1 they have to offer. Since the likes of Candy Ride, Paseana and Bayakoa, I have seen little to get behind coming from that country. However since his sire, Lookin At Lucky; and his broodmare sire is Scat Daddy, both G1 winners on dirt in the U.S but both bred equally as good for grass, I now believe others will get to see what a good Argentina horse really looks like while they are racing. His trainer's grass stats looks poor, but his only graded stakes wins on grass has came with his male trainees, while his only graded stakes wins on dirt have came with females. 11 works spread out evenly over the last 2 1/2 months at Keeneland and he should be ready to fire. 1)Get Western (50-1) is my choice for the 2nd spot. He has two starts this year, The first was a race he needed and the second he easily won his first level condition allowance. He makes a huge leap up in class, but he also sports the trainer of Wise Dan, a multiple G1 SW on grass and two time U.S. Champion Grass Horse. LoPresti has been looking for another since Wise Dan retired and I believe he has found one. Get Western's sire, Get Stormy, was also late to mature as a 3 YO, winning his first stakes and then 2 G3 late in his 3 YO season. He came back as a 4 YO and won 2 G2s. He added 2 G1 as a 5 YO. And then he capped off his career with another G1 score as a 6 YO. In all, he won 11 of 31 starts and earned over $1.6M, all between 1 mile and 1 1/8 mile on grass. Get Western broodmare sire, Marquetry, was a high speed dirt horse that won 10 of 36 lifetime starts and earned $2.8M with his biggest G1 wins coming in the Hollywood Gold Cup at 1 1/4 mile on dirt and the Eddie Read H at 1 1/8 mile on grass. Get Western also has Northern Dancer listed twice on each side of his pedigree in the 5th generation. Do not know if he is ready to pull it off, but works and breeding suggest he is. Will not leave him out. 12) Admission Office (5-1) is my choice to finish in the 3rd spot. He has two starts this year also, the first a win in a second level condition and then a fast closing second to Catholic Boy in his first graded stakes try. He has two works since that effort and both looks like breezes to keep him fit. However, his sire, Point Of Entry, was a multiple G1 winner on grass and Admission Office is a member of his second crop to race. A member of his first crop was Analyze It. Admission Office broodmare sire, Royal Academy, was a 1/2 brother to the dam of Storm Cat and a leading sire in both Europe and Australia for a number of years, along with putting out many good runners that was brought to the U.S. 4) Hot Springs (10-1) is my choice for fourth. He, too, has made two starts this year. He was in need of his first start but it was also against Bricks And Mortar, a horse that has moved to the top of the grass horses division. His second look like the jockey tried to keep him too close to the pace and he failed to respond with his usual late kick. Now Asmussen switches back to his main jockey, gave this horse a series of 4 maintenance breezes since his last and he should return with his late kick in here. My Bet: WP 10, Ex Box 1-10, Tri Box 1-10-12, .10 Super Box 1-4-10-12, Super Key 10 with 1-4-10 with 1-4-10 with 1-4-10. And what is extremely rare for me, I will also bet a smaller WP on the 1, and a tri box with the 1-4-10. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Had the rest of my post typed in but then it disappeared again and it will not let me pull it back up. Won't have time to re type but I will give out my choices: I will put a few notes after each race, mostly about the odds horses I have chosen to give you a better idea why: 7th Race: 3) Elate(8-5), 6) Auspicious Babe(15-1), 5) Blue Prize(2-1). Betting only Tri Box 3-5-6 and Tri Key 3 with 5-6 with 5-6. 6) Auspicious Babe looks like she is returning to form after clearly being off her best form all year. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8th Race: 12) Yoshida(7-2), 8) King Zachary(12-1), 4) Seeking The Soul(4-1), 3) Runaway Ghost(20-1). Bets: WP 12, Ex Box 8-12, Tri Box 4-8-12, .10 Super Box 3-4-8-12, Super Key 12 with 3-4-8 with 3-4-8 with 3-4-8. King Zachary made his first start on derby day and could not compete on a track that was still drying out in a blazing pace and finish time behind the winner who got a big jump on him and the runner up who set the swift pace. With plenty of front running speed signed up for this race, he has a chance to make his presence felt under a new trainer. RUNAWAY GHOST has never beaten this kind, but he gets a chance to sit behind a few this go, instead of being the chase to ensure a solid pace. Has proven he does his best running when allowed to settle and then make a serious move. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9th Race: 1) Winter Sunset(7-2), 2) Delta's Kingdom(8-1), 5)Hard Legacy(8-1), 11) Princess Carolina (4-1). Bets: WP 1, Ex Box 1-2, Tri Box 1-2-8, .10 Super Box 1-2-5-11, Super Key 1 with 2-5-11 with 2-5-11 with 2-5-11. Delta's Kingdom's broodmare sire A.P. Delta is an unraced son of A.P. Indy and dam is Lyphard's Delta, making him a full brother to G1 winner Indy Five Hundred and Delta Princess, dam of 2 time F&M champion Royal Delta, G1 winners Delta Prince, Crown Princess, G1 Placed Carnival Court, G2 Placed Empire Way(whose first foals are now 4) and winner Khozan(whose first foals are now 2 and has one entered tomorrow that should be live at Woodbine). Princess Carolina's dam is Pure Clan , a multiple G1 winner of 8 races in 16 starts and $1.9M in earnings. Pure Clan is also inbred to Secretariat through his daughter Terlingua and son General Assembly who found it impossible to beat Spectacular Bid in six attempts, though he was clearly the 2nd best 3 YO of 1979. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10th Race: Arabians Stakes, so I will pass as race is wide open. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 11th Race: 11) Cadron Flat (9-2), 2) Dixie Zapper (15-1), 5) Shorely (5-1), 9) Game Day Decision (4-1). Bets: WP 11, Ex Box 2-11, Tri Box 2-5-11, .10 Super Box 2-5-9-11, Super Key 11 with 2-5-9 with 2-5-9 with 2-5-9. 2) Dixie Zapper's trainer, Randy Morse, is a 15% lifetime winning trainer who got off to the worst start of his long career if nearly 40 years, but his horses normally comes alive at CD. Has trained the winners of approaching 1000 in his career(11 shy of that mark). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good Luck to all! Have fun!
Following the online gaming question, how prevalent, visible and part of everyday life is legal gambling in the US?
Here in Australia it is everywhere. Every state capital city has a casino, and every pub and club will have a large room full of slot machines (we call them poker machines), video blackjack/roulette, and a sports bar with TV's showing racing from all over the world, with a facility to lay bets at the bar. Our sports telecasts are all sponsored by online betting companies like Bet365, and the sportscasters will provide updates on the odds while for example calling the rugby. Even the sports section of the evening news will provide odds updates. Young people like my son (aged 20) and his mates all have various sports betting and race betting apps on their phones and are always talking about multis and under and over lines. Even kids in primary school talk about it (my son started betting on dog races when he was about 12 through older guys at the rugby club). We have 4 racetracks in Sydney alone, plus greyhound and harness racing tracks, and there are close to 100 racetracks in my state (New South Wales) - not that they all have race meeting every week. Some states have public holidays on the day of big horse race meetings. EDIT: Should mention I'm thinking more sports betting, horse/dog racing, casinos etc rather than lotteries and scratch tickets
[Long Post] The Melbourne Cup! (Hopefully) Helpful tips for tomorrow.
Australian here! As many of you probably know, tomorrow is the Melbourne cup (3200m). I love horse racing, been betting on it for a while now. And i'd like to try and help out my fellow punters, especially those who may not be versed in horse racing. These win odds are taken from Sportsbet, but i'll be giving my own opinions as well. And anyone else who has horse racing experience, feel free to comment!
Hartnell - $27. One of the better horses in Australia, very experienced trainer (James Cummings), with a great jockey (Damien Lane). Has won at 3200m before, came 9th in it's last race, but forgive that. Was in brilliant form prior. VALUE
Almandin - $8.50. As it stands, this horse is the current favourite. And for good reason, it has won the Melbourne cup before. Has incredible endurance, can certainly win this!
Humidor - $10. The horse that almost took down the almighty Winx at the Cox Plate not to long ago. It was $27 before that race, its performance was good enough to warrant a $17 drop. Not to mention Darren Weir is one of the finest horse trainers in Australia. One of the better chances.
Tiberian - $26. Has won 4 of its past 5 runs, but this is its first run in Australia. However all of its past 4 wins were 2400m plus.
Marmelo - $9. Another international horse, but boy this horse looks good. Hugh Bowman is an excellent jockey, comes here in very good form. Won the Doncaster cup, big chance!
Red Cardinal - $18. Has only run two races beyond 2670m, won them both. Has a very competent jockey in Mcevoy. Do not overlook this, has potential.
Johannes Vermeer - $10. Has never raced beyond 2414m, however the bookies are giving this one a big chance. No denying it's a good horse, but personally, I think its inexperience over 2400m will prove costly.
Bondi Beach - $67. It's form has been okay recently, 2 placings in 5 races. But there is a reason it is $67, good horse, but there are better horses in the race.
Max Dynamite - $14. Has competed in the Melbourne Cup before, so has experience. Has only run 4 races since then though, however his last win was dominant. Slight chance
Ventura Storm - $35. Has won 4/5 at 2200m plus, great trainers in D & B Hayes and T Dabernig. Has competed against Humidor and Winx and came second, beating Humidor and losing to Winx.
Wicklow Brave - $51. Recently came second in the Curragh Cup, this 9 year old horse still has legs, and his recent form hasn't been awful. But looking to others in this race.
Big Duke - $20. Darren Weir's second entrant in this race. Recent form has been pretty decent. He has placed in every 2400m plus race he has run in with the exception of one. But forgive that, had restricted room, yet still did well. Chance!
US Army Ranger - $61. Form was good until recently, came 8th in the Goodwood Cup and finished last in the Enterprise Stakes. Anything can happen on the day, but I don't think this horse will threaten.
Boom Time - $31. D & B Hayes and T Dabernig's second entrant in this race. Did poorly at the Sydney Cup last year which was also a 3200m race, but can forgive that as the horse was not used to a clockwise direction. Did win the Caulfield Cup, in very good fashion as well! Not out of this!
Gallante - $91. Won the Sydney Cup that Boom Time competed in last year. However recent form is not brilliant, opened at $101 and has seen slight support. But I don't see him threatening here.
Libran - $46. Another runner in the Sydney Cup last year, finished second behind Gallante. Trained by C J Waller, the trainer responsible for Winx. Recent form is very up and down, decent horse, but I do not see him threatening here.
Nakeeta - $35. Very consistent horse! Has run 15 races since late 2015, and has come in the top 4 on 12 occasions. Been in top form, Schofield is a good jockey. Not out of this race!
Single Gaze - $46. Did very well in the Caulfield Cup recently, came second in a very fast run race! If this horse can repeat that form, then it can be real threat tomorrow!
Wall of Fire - $13. A horse who can handle just about any condition. Run 2nd in three of its past 6 races. Has come down to 53kg and Craig Williams is a very competent jockey. One of the more genuine chances!
Thomas Hobson - $17. First ever run in Australia! Has been in very good form, and did beat fellow Melbourne Cup runner, US Army Ranger back in June. 8 years old and still going strong, rates highly!
Rekindling - $14. Too good for fellow Melbourne Cup runner Wicklow Brave three runs back. Down to 51.5kg, recent form has been fantastic. Young horse with a very bright future. Top chance!
Amelie's Star - $17. Darren Weir is determined to win this! His 3rd runner, and it's a good one. Yendall is the jockey, and he and Weir have combined many times before. Biggest takeaway is that this horse has beat the Melbourne Cup favourite Almandin. Solid form recently, one of the better chances.
Cismontane - $51. The latest entrant, had to win the Lexus Cup to get here! At 50kg, it is the lightest horse in the race. It has placed in 5 of its last 6, including 2 wins! Waterhouse and Bott are fantastic trainers, and Mertens is a more than capable jockey. Wouldn't be surprised if it was in the finish.
Well there you have it! Hope I helped, in some way. Feel free to ask questions, give own opinions etc! :) My top 4 for tomorrow are: 1: Marmelo 2: Hartnell 3: Almandin 4: Wall of Fire EDIT. Well, that's the Cup done for another year. Unfortunately I didn't do to well, but me Mum did. Congrats to everyone who had Rekindling.
I will give you my opinion of every horse's pedigree that looks to be pointing to this year's derby. but I will let each of you make the final decision of who you want to risk money on. Most of my thoughts will be dead on but there are instances where I may overlook a sire but more likely it will be the dam I tend to overlook. There will be instances where you disagree with my assessment, but that is why it is called gambling. I enjoy betting the Ky Derby and BC races more than any other races because there are usually live longshots in the fields. Bolt D'Oro is first up. His sire was Medaglia d'Oro, a son of El Prado. Medaglia d'Oro only G1 win at 1 1/4 mile was the Travers S where he ran the last 1/2 mile in 51 flat and was all out to hang on beating the only other graded stakes winner in the field, Repent, whose biggest win was the G2 La Derby, ran that year at 1 1/16 miles. But he also ran second in two editions of the BC Classic, Belmont S(finishing the last half in 53 2/5), and the Pacific Classic(to Candy Ride when he set the track record that he still holds in 1:59 flat). His best runners were at their best up to 1 1/8 miles, though his only runner to win at 1 1/4 mile was Songbird, who did it twice, in 203 flat and 204 flat, both on fast tracks and finishing times that are respectable for fillies but a little slow for the best colts. Bolt D'Oro dam, Globe Trot, won three times in 17 starts, all at 1 mile but no stakes wins. But her sire is A.P. Indy, giving Bolt all the distance pedigree he will need. I was prepared to bet against this horse until Castellano got off. I was willing to make Castellano beat me, but since Espinoza decided to accept the mount, I will have to consider him again. If Espinoza sits him a few lengths off the early lead and let others battle up front, he will be the one to beat. Already know this horse can rate and that style wins most of the Ky Derbies. Enticed is another son of Medaglia D'Oro(see above). His dam is It's Tricky, a multiple G1 winning filly up to 1 1/8 mile. However, the only time she tried 1 1/4 mile, she ran 2nd to Royal Delta, a champion 3 YO & 4 YO filly. She just recently died from foaling complications producing a Pioneerof The Nile colt, who also died. Her other foal was a year older full sister to Enticed and retired without racing to preserved the bloodlines. It's Tricky sire, Mineshaft, is a son of A.P. Indy who was Horse Of The Year in 2003 and winning at 1 1/4 mile twice in 2 attempts, the Jockey Club Gold Cup in 2:00 1/5 and the Suburban on 201 3/5, beating Volponi in the latter, pulling away at the end. His best sons were Effinex, a G1 winner at 1 1/4 mile and Dialed In, beaten favorite in the 2011 Ky Derby. Enticed trainer, Kiaran McLaughlin has experienced the pressure of derby week several times, including a 2nd in the 2005 Ky Derby with Closing Argument at 80-1, and two 4ths with Frosted and Mohaymen, both sons of Tapit. Enticed is the first horse McLauglin has gotten to the derby that should enjoy the distance and like Bolt, he will still several lengths back off the front runners and get first jump on the late runners. Still my pick to win. Bravazo is a son of Awesome Again, who was Horse Of The Year in 1998 when he won the BC Classic against probably the best field top to bottom ever assembled for that race, including Silver Charm, Swain, Victory Gallop and Skip Away, all multiple G1 SWs up to 1 1/2 miles. Awesome Again is a top sire and his best son, Ghostzapper, also won the G1 BC Classic on his way to Horse Of The Year in 2004. Bravazo's dam, Tiz O' Gold, is bred on the exact same lines as Tiznow but her broodmare sire, Slew O' Gold was Seattle Slew's most accomplished runner on the race track, winning the older horse TC at 4 YO after narrowing missing sweeping it as a 3 YO. While Bravazo is bred to handle 1 1/4 miles, he will need to run faster than he has thus far to be a factor against G1 competition. His trainer, D Wayne Lukas, is tied with Baffert as the active trainers with most Ky Derby wins with 4 each. This horse, on paper at least, looks like he has no chance to win this, but Lukas has proven time and again that is when he is most dangerous. Your call, but I personally am leaning against. Promises Fulfilled is a son of Shackleford, who ran 4th in the Ky Derby after setting the pace and then won the Preakness S, beating Animal Kingdom. His dam, Marquee Delivery, was graded stakes placed at 1 mile and 1 1/8 miles. His broodmare sire, Marquetry, won the 1 1/4 mile Hollywood Gold Cup, just lasting and beating a career G3 winner but was trounced in at least a half dozen other attempts at 1 1/4 mile, including twice more each in the Gold Cup and BC Classic. If Promises Fulfilled gets a slow pace is the only way, he will be a factor in the Ky Derby and I personally do not see that as possible. I will definitely make this one beat me. I feel he will be enter to help make the pace as quick as possible and try to set the race up for his stablemate. Magnum Moon is a son of Malibu Moon, who sire Ky Derby winner Orb, a horse Magnum Moon is similar bred like. Orb's broodmare sire was Unbridled and Magnum Moon's broodmare sire is Unbridled's Song. However, there is a major difference in their female lines that could prevent Magnum Moon from getting the 1 1/4 mile distance. Unbridled's broodmare sire, Le Fabuleux, is a son of Wild Risk, a great grandson of St Simon and himself the broodmare sire of Blushing Groom(broodmare sire of Awesome Again). In Unbridled's female family under Le Fabuleux, his dams traces to Man O' War twice and more important, to La Troienne twice. Unbridled's Song was super fast and the beaten favorite in the 1996 Ky Derby when 4th to another Unbridled's son, Grindstone. Unbridled's Song broodmare sire was Caro, whose best sons were better on grass than dirt. However, Caro's daughter, Winning Colors, won the Ky Derby in 1988, mostly because the trainers of that derby gave her no respect and she got to run all alone throughout and lasted. Unbridled's Song initially was better at siring sprinters/ milers types when he first started breeding, but his progeny started getting more distance as he aged. Underneath in Magnum Moon pedigree is Giant's Causeway whose broodmare sire is Rahy, a son of Blushing Groom. Pletcher has screwed up on several top 3 YOs just before the derby and this could possibly be another one. After watching his Arkansas Derby, I feel he has peaked and probably will be overbet in here. I will take a stance against this one and leave him out of all my bets. Quip is a son of Distorted Humor, who was better as a sprinter during his racing career. He was the sire of Ky Derby and Preakness winner, Funny Cide, but Funny Cide's broodmare sire(Slewacide) had more to do with that than him. Distorted Humor can produce a distance runner but usually when he gets a lot of help from the dam. And that is not the case with Quip. Starting with his broodmare sire, Indian Charlie, his female family is loaded with sprint/miler type runners and producers. Definitely one I will not consider. Nothing has happened to change my mind with this one. Good Magic is a son of Curlin, who ran third in the Ky Derby in his 4th lifetime start, then won the Preakness and ran 2nd in the Belmont S on his way to the 3 YO Champion. He was Horse Of The Year at 4 in 2008. Good Magic's broodmare sire is Hard Spun, who beat Curlin when 2nd in the 2007 Ky Derby behind Street Sense, then ran 3rd in the Preakness and 4th in the Belmont before finishing 2nd in the BC Classic in the slop against Curlin. Hard Spun's sire was Danzig, who mostly known for siring milers but his broodmare sire was Turkoman, a son of Alydar, who was Champion Older Horse after maturing as a 4 YO. However he ran 2nd in the Travers S and 3rd in the BC Classic as a 3 YO, so he showed he preferred distance. There will be no one in this year derby that is better bred to handle a distance than Good Magic. And with Chad Brown(who learned under Bobby Frankel) as his trainer, it will be hard to bet against this one. Only downfall might be two races before the derby but Brown has proven he knows how to get them fit quickly. With his bloodlines, the fact he ran away with the BC Juvenile and he ran on the heaviest track on the day of the Blue Grass S, there is no way I will leave him out of my exotics. Keeneland dirt track went from muddy to good to fast in a span of less than 1 1/2 hours proves my theory that tracks changes conditions of their track much too soon. If you take a look at Good Magic coming back to the winners circle after that race, his whole body and legs is covered in mud, indicating the track was still off. Solomini is another son of Curlin(see above). His broodmare sire is Storm Cat. However, Solomini's dam, Surf Song, is an unraced 1/2 sister to Frosted but with one noted difference. She is inbred 5x5 to ultra stamina influence Princequillo. When a horse is inbred, they will often turn out closely resembling the inbred horse. She has five foals to race and Solomini is her first graded placed foal. Early in his career, Princequillo flashed speed but was unable to win often until he was claimed for $2500 and tried at distances of 1 1/4 mile and up. He set the 1 3/4 mile track record at Saratoga in 1943 as a 3 YO and was brought by Arthur "Bull" Hancock for breeding purposes. Baffert announced before the Rebel, that he would have to find another spot for Solomini because he was going to run Justify in the Arkansas Derby. Maybe worth a wager in the exacta or trifecta, but only if he gets little or no respect at the betting windows. I still believe he represents Baffert's best shot at another derby win. While I have no intention of including him in my exotics, I still feel he represents Baffert's best opportunity to win another derby. Flameaway is a son of Scat Daddy, who probably is best up to 1 1/8 miles on dirt. He is better bred for grass and that is why most of his foals perform better on that surface. Flameaway's broodmare sire is Fusaichi Pegasus, winner of the 2000 Ky Derby and Mr Prospector's only son to win at 1 1/4 mile or further in a G1 race on a fast track. The only other time he raced at 1 1/4 miles was the BC Classic that year and he was no factor against Tiznow & Giant's Causeway. I see Flameaway as a pace factor only and there are quite a few I like better. The only scenario I can see this horse winning is to be left alone out front where he can dictate the pace he would like to go. But there are several others in here that could do the same thing. Firenze Fire is a son of Poseidon's Warrior, who did not win a stakes race past 6 furlongs. However, Poseidon's Warrior broodmare sire is Smarten who also is broodmare sire of Smart Strike. Smarten won 4 derbies as a 3 YO and ran 2nd in the Travers S and the Arkansas Derby. Firenze Fire's broodmare sire is Langfuhr, the best siring dirt son of Danzig. Langfuhr is the sire of Wando who won Canada's TC(restricted to Canadian breds) but got crushed when he raced against America's best and Lawyer Ron, who won the Arkansas Derby and several other G1 up to 1 1/8 miles. Firenze Fire has a sneaky good pedigree especially on his dam side and that makes him a possible for an underneath slot but think him winning is probably a little far fetch. He is one I will probably make beat me because I like several others more. Free Drop Billy is a son of Union Rags, who won the 2012 Belmont S and whose only off the board finish in his career came in the Ky Derby when he got sandwiched at the start, squeezed back and had to take up but then closed with a rush to finish 7th, making up more than a dozen lengths. Free Drop Billy's broodmare sire is Giant's Causeway who has been a top runner and sire throughout his life. Free Drop Billy's dam, Trensa, won 3 of 19 starts without a stakes win but was G3 stakes placed in the 1 3/8 mile Robert G Dick Memorial H on grass. Her only two sons to race thus far are both G1 SWers, and includes Hawkbill, winner of the recent G1 Dubai Sheema Classic at 1 1/2 mile on grass. Free Drop Billy is inbred through his first five generations to 4(C)x5(C)x4(F) To Mr Prospector, 4(C)x5(C)x5(F) To Northern Dancer, and 5x5 To Secretariat. He has the pedigree to burn non believers and it will mostly be the type of trip he gets that determines his final outcome. With all the likely speed entered, I will use him in my exotics bets. Combatant is a son of Scat Daddy, who as I mentioned earlier was at his best up to 1 1/8 miles on dirt but his best runners are better on grass. Combatant's broodmare sire is Boundary, who also was a sprinter during his racing career. Boundary did sire Ky Derby and Preakness winner, Big Brown, but it was discovered after the Preakness that he was receiving monthly steroids shots, which has always been illegal in all horse racing jurisdictions because it can mask more potent drugs. When confronted, the trainer admitted to administering the steroids, leading to a 10 year to lifetime ban on the trainer. That said, Combatant does have a nice pedigree underneath that makes it hard to dismiss him. Forty Niner ran 2nd in the 1988 Ky Derby to Winning Colors and is Mr Prospector's best siring son. Combatant's dam is also inbred 3x4 to Northern Dancer and 5x5 to Native Dancer. Also, Slew O' Gold can be found on the dam side. If you like this horse, you can be sure you will get some solid odds on derby day, especially if he runs close but finishes 2nd or 3rd in his last prep. While I will not use him in this race because I have to take a stand somewhere, he is one that could potentially ruin my bets. My Boy Jack is a son of Creative Cause, who finished 5th in the 2012 Ky Derby after making a strong move before hitting the invisible proverbial brick wall at the 1/8 pole. Creative Cause's sire, Giant's Causeway, had no problem with the 1 1/4 miles distance but his dam, Dream Of Summer, limit was 1 1/8 miles but she was even better at up to a mile. Her sire line is the same as Uncle Mo and this sire line is much more dangerous on grass. My Boy Jack's broodmare sire, Mineshaft, was Horse Of The Year at 4 YO and won both of his attempts at 1 1/4 miles. And believe it or not, he is the only son of A.P. Indy out of a Mr Prospector mare to win a G1 race at 1 1/4 miles. My Boy Jack's dam was unraced but his 2nd dam, Gold N Delicious, ran 2nd in the CCA Oaks at 1 1/4 mile to multiple G1 SW My Flag, Personal Ensign's best daughter. Her sire Gold Alert also sired another daughter, Golden Bri, who beat Serena's Song in the CCA Oaks at 1 1/4 miles a year earlier. His trainer and jockey both have made critical errors in their approach to this year's derby and it is amazing the horse is still in form. Or is he? The Lexington S final time was a little on the slow side and a maiden race three races earlier ran in 4/5 of a second faster. And he knocked two full seconds off his time(at GP) off his previous race, when second to Hofburg. Still leaving this one out of your exotics could prove costly. He is one that can get in the exotics but I would demand solid odds before I am willing to include him in my bets personally. Audible is a son of Into Mischief, who won the 1 1/16 mile CashCall Futurity on Hollywood Park's all weather track in a fast time. Into Mischief is a 1/2 brother to Beholder, who won the Pacific Classic at 1 1/4 mile as a 5 YO against horses better suited for shorter distances and then ran 2nd to California Chrome in the same race as a 6 YO. Beholder two races outside of California was better than most perceived as she ran 2nd in the Ky Oaks, beaten a 1/2 length by Princess Of Sylmar and then 4th, beaten 1 length by that rival in the Ogden Phipps H. However, true to her pedigree, she performed her best at 1 1/16 miles and 1 1/8 miles against the best of her class. Audible's broodmare sire, Gilded Time, won the BC Juvenile Dirt as a 2 YO and was injured shortly thereafter and missed the derby. He returned in the BC Sprint after a year layoff and ran third, beaten 3/4 of a length. However, his pedigree suggested he would struggle at a 1 1/4 mile. In fact, his best son, Gayego, won the G1 Arkansas Derby at 1 1/8 miles and ran near the back in both the Ky Derby & Preakness S, fading badly both times. So there is no way I will consider betting this horse under any circumstances. I have never made money betting this type and rarely does this type beat my horse. Pass. Noble Indy is a son of Take Charge Indy, who won the G1 Florida Derby at 1 1/8 miles. In his only try at the 1 1/4 distance, he finished 19th of 20th beaten 50 lengths by I'll Have Another. Take Charge Indy is a 1/2 brother to Will Take Charge, champion 3 YO of 2013. Noble Indy's dam, Noble Maz, won a couple of turf sprints restricted to Pennsylvania Bred, Her sire, Storm Boot, did his best running in turf sprints also, though he did not win a stakes race. Storm Boot's best son, Delta Storm also spent his career on all weather tracks and grass in Southern California but won only 2 small stakes, both at 6 furlongs. While I am willing to throw his Risen Star race out, I still do not see him being a factor at 1 1/4 mile. Pass. Vino Rosso is a son of Curlin, champion 3 YO of 2007 and Horse of the Year in 2008. His broodmare sire is Street Cry, sire of both Street Sense and Zenyatta, both confirmed late runners. Street Cry, as a runner, was sent to the lead and set blistering paces throughout his career, but often tired late. He was a classic example of a horse who was asked to run early but probably would have been better as a late type runner. I say this because his female family was loaded with European champions and most of them did their best running late. His Tampa Bay Derby run was not a good indication of his running ability as the pace was crawling, at best, and Velasquez tried to keep him close to have a chance and he did not respond mostly because he had nothing to run at. While I like others better, I know he could surprise with a pace to run at like he will get in the Ky Derby, if Pletcher decides to push forward. John Velasquez usually gets his picks of mounts for Pletcher but usually picks the wrong mount because he, like most handicappers, does not consider what the extra distance will costs his mount. This year, I think he got it right, though and I look for him to finish the best of Pletcher's entries. In my 40 years of watching horse races, I never seen a jockey hit a horse hard with a whip after they crossed the finish line. But JV did on this horse and it was hard enough that the commentator mentioned it on the replay. Justify is a son of Scat Daddy, who won the 1 1/8 mile Florida Derby in 2007. Scat Daddy's best foals ran better on grass than dirt, however. Scat Daddy's best performing horse on dirt looks to be Frac Daddy, who ran second in the 2013 Arkansas Derby before finishing 16th in the Ky Derby. El Kabeir won 2 G3 New York preps in the 1 1/16 mile Gotham S and 1M 70Y Jerome s. He ran 3rd in the Wood Memorial and scratched from the Ky Derby on the morning of that race. He would never hit the board again in a graded stakes. Daddy Nose Best won the G3 Sunland Derby for his only graded stakes win on dirt before running 10th in the Ky Derby and 9th in the Preakness. Scat Daddy's son Daddy Long Legs won the UAE Derby at 1 3/16 mile on their then all weather track before finishing last in the 2012 Ky Derby. His only other start on dirt, he finished last in the BC Juvenile Dirt the previous year. Justify's dam, Stage Magic, finished third in the G3 Gardenia S at 1 mile after battling the pace and tiring to finish 6 3/4 lengths behind Groupie Doll. She also finished third in the Pippen S at 1 1/16 mile, again tiring late. Justify's second dam was the G1 placed Magical Illusion. Her G1 placing came in the CCA Oaks after battling Ashado for the lead and stopping cold at the mile pole in the 1 1/4 mile test to finish 3rd beaten 12 lengths. Justify's broodmare sire, Ghostzapper, is a 1/2 brother to City Zip but he won the BC Classic at 1 1/4 mile after setting a slow pace for a G1 race and sprinting home in 47 4/5 seconds at Lone Star Park, a track known for sub 46 splits for distance races. Most of his foals performs better under a mile, like City Zip but he has some that performed well in distance too, unlike City Zip. Which one will Justify be? Only time will tell but I will make him prove to me that he can do what his bloodlines says he can not do against G1 competition. Lone Sailor is now eligible to run in the Ky Derby with 42 points. Lone Sailor is inbred more than any other horse pointing to this year's derby and that alone makes him dangerous. He is bred 4x4 To Mr Prospector, 4(C)x5(C)x5(F)x5(F) To Secretariat, 5x5 to Bold Ruler, Northern Dancer & Broadway, 5(C)x5(C) To Buckpasser, and 5(C)x5(F)x5(F) To Raise A Native. Bold Ruler & Broadway is the parents of Reviewer(sire Of Ruffian) and Broadway is also 2nd dam of Seeking The Gold. His sire is Majestic Warrior, a son of A.P. Indy whose only stakes win came in the G1 Hopeful S at 7 furlongs. His broodmare sire, Mr Greeley, is a close relative of Ruffian and he had high speed including a neck and neck battle with Desert Stormer in the 1995 BC Sprint from start to finish in which he could not get by but refused to give up. He also set a 44 3/5 and a 108 3/5 pace in the mile G2 Jerome S in which he finished 2nd also in a 133 3/5. He passed his high speed on to most of his foals and several carried that speed up to 1 1/8 mile in top company. But the main part of Lone Sailor is his dam line, who has established a main line in the U.S. and a couple more in Europe, including Danzig's best distance siring family. To me, he is one I will not want to leave out, especially underneath, as he will be huge odds and most will not even consider. Definitely an under the radar horse with a very good trainer. Mendelssohn is a son of Scat Daddy, who won the G1 Florida Derby at 1 1/8 miles, G1 Champagne S at 1 Mile and G2 Fountain Of Youth S on his way to winning 5 times in 9 lifetime starts with 1 second and 1 Third. His only 3 unplacing came in the G1 BC Juvenile at 2 when 4th beaten 15 lengths to Street Sense and the G1 Ky Derby where he was also beaten by Street Sense when 18th by 38 1/2 lengths. However, as I have mentioned on several other posts, Pletcher announced the week of the derby that Scat Daddy had develop quarter cracks in both front feet and he was being fitted with thick bar shoes on all 4 feet so he could participate in the derby. Scat Daddy ended up tearing several tendons during that race and was retired the next day. Scat Daddy is a son of Johannesburg, who won all 7 of his 2 YO races including the G1 BC Juvenile Dirt where he toyed with a solid field, but he did not win as a 3 YO in 3 starts. However he did run 8th in the G1 Ky Derby in an even effort in his 2nd starts of the year with only a 7 furlong prep on grass in Europe to get him fit. His trainer was none other than Aidan O'Brien. He is a 1/2 brother to Champion Beholder and Into Mischief, one of U.S. top sires for the last 4-5 years. Their broodmare sire, Tricky Creek, won the G2 Discovery H at 1 1/8 mile as a 3 YO for his biggest win. However he descends from the Nearctic sire line(sire of Northern Dancer & Icecapade). However, their dam line descends into horses such as Northern Dancer, Sea Bird(grandson of Native Dancer and winner of 7 races in 8 starts including the 1 1/2 mile Arc on grass), Princequillo, Mahmoud, and War Relic. I really think there is too much speed signed up to give him a realistic chance of winning. Or another way of putting it is my money will be going elsewhere. Hofburg is a son of Tapit, leading sire in North America for the past decade. Most of his foals are best up to mid distance but several have gone further when they have gotten help from their dams. Tapit ran 9th in the 2004 Ky Derby on a muddy track in his fifth lifetime start to Smarty Jones. A little known fact about Tapit was he wore front bandages on his legs in every start of his career, indicating he had some sort of ligament damage that his trainer was nursing(and probably the biggest reason he was lightly raced). Hofburg broodmare sire is Touch Gold, who won the G1 Belmont S spoiling Silver Charm's attempt to sweep the TC in 1997. Hofburg's dam, Soothing Touch, did not win in six starts but one of her daughters, Emollient is a four time G1 stakes winner including the Ashland S at 1 1/16 miles, the Spinster S at 1 1/8 miles, both at Keeland, then the G1 American Oaks at Hollywood Park at 1 1/4 miles on turf, and the 1 1/4 mile Rodeo Drive S at Santa Anita, also on grass. Hofburg 4th dam, Coupe De Foile, is dam of Machiavellian, a European Champion Miler who was best known as sire of Street Cry(sire of Ky Derby winner Street Sense and Zenyatta). However, Coupe De Foile dam, Raise The Standard, is a 1/2 sister to Northern Dancer and Spring Adeiu, second dam of Danehill, sire of 348 SWs, most by one sire in history. So Hofburg, like he showed in the Florida Derby, will keep on trying regardless of how far they go. However, the biggest concern with him is he is very lightly race and probably has faced very little trouble and no one knows how any horse will handle adversity the first time until they are put in that position. Gronkowski is inbred 4x4 to Mr Prospector. His sire, Lonhro, won 26 of 35 starts including 11 G1 stakes races while racing his entire career in Australia on grass. He was champion middle distance and Australian horse of the year in 2004. While I know little about him as a sire, it seems most of his runners are sprinters/milers and I can find none that were successful on dirt in top company. Gronkowski's broodmare sire is Looking At Lucky, a multiple G1 winning son of Smart Strike who won the G1 Preakness S in 2010 and would fail to hit the board twice in his 13 starts career, in the G1 Ky Derby and G1 BC Classic, both at 1 1/4 miles. Gronkowski has won two all weather track races and neither were consider tough enough to be graded. Actually his qualifying berth for the derby came in a Class 2 allowance field and was not even consider a minor stakes in Europe. Definitely a pass for me but have at him if you like him. Instilled Regard is a son of Arch, who won the G1 Super Derby at 1 1/4 miles, beating a G3 quality field at best. Here is a sire that I disagree with the pedigree experts assessment on his distance abilities. The experts thinks he is a 1 1/4 mile sire but his progency says otherwise. True, he is sire of BC Classic winner, Blame but Blame's female family produced Sadler's Wells and his full brother Fairly Bridge, and Nureyev, along with dozens of others who displayed distance capabilities. Outside of Blame, Arch's other foals was good up to 1 1/8 miles but none lasted the 1 1/4 miles distance. However, his sire line is one of the best stamina influences but Arch's dam line was simply middle distance horses at best. Instilled Regard's broodmare sire is Forestry, a son of Storm Cat but who sports the same dam line as Mr Prospector, just a few generations later. This dam line was also at their best up to 1 1/8 miles and struggled at any distances past that point. However, Instilled Regard's second dam, Heavenly Prize, won 9 of 18 starts including several at 1 1/4 miles and never finished worse than third, including a solid third to Cigar while he was in the middle of his 16 straight winning streak. The Risen Star S is a toss for this horse and every other horse than ran in that race as no horse passed more than one horse throughout that race. While it is common to see no moves in a 4 or 5 horse field, it has to be at least 1 in 10,000 to see none in a 8 or more horse fields. He really had no shot in the Santa Anita Derby but it took him out of any consideration I was willing to give him. Blended Citizen is a son of Proud Citizen, who ran 2nd in the 2002 Ky Derby and 3rd in the Preakness, beating Medaglia D'Oro. Proud Citizen is one of only a few sires that has sired 2 Ky Oaks winners, Proud Spell and Believe You Can. Proud Citizen's son, Went The Day Well, lagged near the back of the pack in the 2012 Ky Derby but was closing fastest of all at the end to finish 4th, beaten 2 1/2 lengths, making up 8 lengths in the stretch alone against I'll Have Another and Bodemeister. Proud Citizen's third dam, Arctic Dancer, is a full sister to Northern Dancer. Blended Citizen's broodmare sire, Langfuhr, was arguably Danzig's best producing son on dirt but was also a solid sire on grass. While he was a sprintemiler during his racing career including winning the G1 Metropolitan Mile, several of his foals stretched their speed up to 1 1/8 mile on dirt. With three crosses of Nearctic in his 5th generation and two crosses of Natalma(Mahmoud's grand daughter who was dam of Northern Dancer & Arctic Dancer), Blended Citizen is bred very similar to Danehill, sire of 348 SWs(most all time by one sire). However, Danehill won two sprint stakes on grass during his racing career and most of his foals were also best at sprinting up to a mile on grass. While I feel Blended Citizen best surface will be the all weather tracks and grass, there is little in his pedigree that suggest he can not perform well at 1 1/4 mile on dirt. However, he will have to run a race he has not proven capable of yet to be a factor but has the look of one that could finish in the lower have of the exotics, keying a monstrous payoff. Dream Baby Dream ran 2nd in the Sunland Park Derby and sits at 21st(tied for 20th) on the points list. He crosses 4x4 to Storm Cat & 5x5 to Exclusive Native. His sire, Into Mischief is a 1/2 brother to Beholder but ran only on all weather tracks in his racing career, making it difficult to get a gauge of how far his foals will want to go. Everything he has sired the last few years are racing in top class and more than holding their own, both on dirt and grass. However, as far as I know, nothing have attempted 1 1/4 miles, much less beaten the best at that distance. But his 1/2 sister, Beholder was best at 1 1/16 miles to 1 1/8 miles but she also continued trying up to 1 1/4 miles, winning the Pacific Classic at 1 1/4 mile against a field that was better in slightly shorter distance and 2nd to California Chrome in the same race the next year. Dream Baby Dream's broodmare sire, Songandaprayer sets the fastest pace in Ky Derby history in 2001 before tiring in the stretch. Most of his foals also were of the sprinting variety. However, Dream Baby Dream's 2nd dam, Etoufee, was a daughter of Tabasco Cat, who won the 1994 Preakness and Belmont S after running an even 6th on a sloppy track in the Ky Derby. Another who on surface looks a cut below the best of these but he has three of the best producing sires over the last few years close up in his pedigree; Into Mischief, Unbridled's Song & Storm Cat. Another possible for a minor award, but will be looking elsewhere. Sporting Chance is a son of Tiznow, winner of two BC Classic at 1 1/4 mile. His dam, Wynning Ride, won the Iowa Distaff for her only stakes win, but she ran 2nd in the G1 Hollywood Starlet S on Hollywood's all weather track and third in the G1 CCA Oaks at 1 1/4 mile. Her sire is Candy Ride, unbeaten in 6 lifetime starts, including the G1 Pacific Classic where he broke the track record in 1:59.11 and still owns it today. His pedigree on his dam side is tilted heavily towards speed and is one I will try to beat. However, Lukas will do his best to have him ready but I still believe it looks like a fast pace is setting up in this year's derby. Another pace setter who has given no indication that he can win this. Pass. Givemeaminit is a son of Star Guitar, who won 24 of 30 lifetime starts, mostly races restricted to Louisiana Breds. His sire is Quiet American, sire of 1997 Ky Derby & Preakness winner Real Quiet, Cara Rafaela(dam of Bernardini) and Quiet Dance(dam of Horse Of The Year Saint Liam and 2nd dam of Gun Runner). Givemeaminit's broodmare sire is Turkoman, a son of Alydar out of a mare by Round Table's son Table Play and U.S. Horse Of The Year in 1986. Sire of Givemeaminit's second dam is Pleasant Colony, winner of the 1981 Ky Derby & Preakness and third in the Belmont S. Sire of his third dam is Illustrious, another son of Round Table from 1926 Belmont S winner Chance Play, a closer relative of Man O' War including the same sire. I absolutely love his pedigree and he will be my bet to win the Ky Derby if he qualifies in this weekend's Louisiana Derby. Dallas Stewart decided to get him closer to the pace in the La Derby and that plan basically backfired. I will be looking for him as he is at CD and Stewart will usually try to win a race with his horses during Derby week that does not qualify for the derby itself. Pony Up is a son of Aikenite, a son of Yes It's True whose top effort was a 2nd in the G1 Breeders' Futurity at 1 1/16 miles on Keeneland's all weather track. When tried on dirt, he was beaten soundly a number of times in mid distances and his only win in a dirt stakes came in the G2 CD Handicap at 7 furlongs. Pony Up's dam, A.P. Petal, is an unraced daughter of A.P. Indy bred with a Mr Prospector daughter that produced many good foals but for the most part with distance limitations. However, Pony Up is in bred 4x4 to Secretariat and crosses with Bold Ruler three times in his 5th generation. Throw in Secretariat's 1/2 brother, Sir Gaylord, as the sire of his fourth dam and you have a horse that will probably run all day. His Holy Bull race is better than it looks on paper. I think he will turn out to be a better grass or synthetic horse after looking at his races on both surfaces. These are the known runners that is still pointing for the derby. There are several good ones that will fly under the radar and you will get good odds. There are several others that will be overbet and ripe to take a stance against. I will update the contenders as more information becomes available. But the final decision will be yours whether you want to try to make a little or make a lot with just a few dollars risked. I personally normally bet a lot(for me) but as always, will only include the few horses I think will have the best chance of surprising. Good luck to all and hope this helps.
