Pulling hard to IHA. But that has not done me any good in the past in this race. I hate to say it, but think Union Rags reminds me very much of an Easy Goer type, and he is going to love this track and I am afraid this is going be his day to be the spoiler. I think he gets the job done. Hope I am wrong though.
I will just say this about IHA in the Belmont. Pretty much every horse that has failed recently had declining speed figures going into the race . He seems like he should be peaking for the Belmont, so if he get's beat, it will be by a horse that runs one mighty race or a bad ride. O' Neil took a huge gamble in the way he brought the horse to the Triple Crown, and he is now reaping the rewards. This horse might lose, but he will show up big time. That said, Paynter, Union Rags , Dullahan, all worthy opponents, so he will have to earn this thing. Optimizer is worth looking at , no joke.
I know all the value will be to bet against IHA but I'm pulling for him and will structure my tix similar to the Preakness keying a few underneath.I can't let this opportunity pass. I don't blame anyone for betting or rooting against him but the Preakness did show you can make some decent scratch on him if you get lucky underneath.I remember being at HP watching the Belmont and being devastated when Silver Charm lost.The place was electric 20 min. before the race.When my beloved Sunday Silence lost to EG I was shocked,upset all of the above. I remember my knees buckling,then I started crying like a teenager. Then drinking lots of liquor for two hours straight. Next I'm in a cab on my way to Gardena to play some crazy Chineseman card game with dominoes. I remember some little asian guy next to me screaming like a madman and yelling Cheeng Gow,and making a swiping motion at the cards.Scared the beejesus out of me.After that I blacked out.24 hours later I wake up in the county jail with with red lipstick on,wearing a blonde wig and a Snickers bar on my chest . My bunkie had a big smile on his face and he kept calling me "cupcake". Thank God I don't remember anything.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Good idea, when the funds are there I'll key my horse in 2nd in case I get beat. Savior ticket as they say.
I did not see that before. Great Minds think alike
I'm glad you have finally come to your senses.
For the numbers folks, here's a little something to chew on:
KY Derby 11th
That's 11...6...and another 5 point jump gets him in the winners circle.
A show bet on Optimizer is better than buying Facebook stock. Don't miss out.
