...........Revolutionary! After beating the strongest Derby Prep,in which Mylute,Golden Soul,and Palice Malice all ran very,very well,Revolutionary,with 2 perfect pace set ups,hung like a cheap suit in both races.For those who say that our man Pletcher has no clue how to train,and develop 3 year-olds,Revolutionary did nothing to quiet those complaints.
Not really. How was he ever going to finish infront of Orb in the Belmont if they both ran there best races? Orb lost tons more ground in the Derby as Revolutionary saved all the ground. Only way you should have liked Rev in the Belmont is if you thought Orb would come in as a tired horse. He was a joke of a 2nd choice IMO.
..the bettors that took 8/1 odds on the PIG Freedom Child..one of the biggest underlays in horse racing history..
While I still think Freedom Child has a big future you are correct that was quite an underlay. The day after the Peter Pan I said on here he was a major play against in the Belmont because of the speed bias he took advantage of in his big win. I was right about something in the Belmont I guess.
The biggest disappointment was the next Triple Crown Winner Orb.
Agreed. What else could it be? Isnt that the most dissapointing every triple crown year when the derby winner loses in either the Preakness or Belmont.
Horses like Golden Soul and Revolutionary fit my Belmont bet against model. It seems almost every year there is a horse or two who finish--or at least appear to--fast in the Derby to hit the board and not win. Then they skip the Preakness and get way over bet in the Belmont because of the idea that their strong Derby finish will equate to them liking 12f. The horse that disappointed me was Will Take Charge because, I think if he were right, he could have done some serious damage. Trouble probably cost him a major placing in the Derby and at that point Lukas should have probably regrouped with him in the interest of getting him right for the late summer, Haskell, Travers, etc., races.
oxbow has to be considered the #1 3 year old. orb has to drop out of the top 3
Because I liiterally lost my loving ass on him in 2/3rds of the Triple Crown.
No more wagering on trainers that juice who are being watched.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Vyjack should have been entered in the Woody Stevens this past Saturday. He would have been about 1/5 the price he went off at in the Belmont. Hopefully his 2 triple crown races wont affect him negatively going forward and he can have a good career at 6 furlongs to 1 mile. He is an extremly talented horse.
