I'm certainly not old enough to remember those horses, but boy, what a race that was. I'll have another sure showed a ton of heart. I didn't think there was any way he was catching Bodemeister.

One question about your exacta...did you box em??? Just curious.

My opinion of the chances for the triple crown...2%. I'd have said 1% except he showed so much heart today that I decided to double it. I'm not trying to be a debbie downer, but I seriously question whether there will ever be another triple crown winner.

A very exciting race to watch. I'd love to see him win the next one too.

I boxed them with Teeth of the Dog,Went the Day Well and Cozzetti, was looking for a bigger payout in the event of an upset..

as much as the sport wants a Triple Crown champ, horses like Union Rags, Dullahan, and Optimizer are licking their chops at running the Belmont at a mile and a half

Yes, but this horse is a late charger with a ton of heart... don't bet against him... he may just have another!

wont bet against him , but depending on who runs in the Belmont , I will cover him winning and also the big upset...He will have to earn it...He has a HUGE heart and has a real lot left in the tank

That horse's chances are slim & none with slim walking out the back door. There have been much better horses fail to do it in the 2000s.
Just curious to which of the 2/3s horses are you referring to, and why?

Looks like there may be 10 fresh horses + 1 Preakness starter that will challenge I'll Have Another at the Belmont aka " the test of a champion"

on a trivia note, just found out that the RHOF trainer TW "Cotton" Pershall was actually a horse trainer before he went to work for John Olin as a dog pro...which brings to mind an old adage from prehistoric times that went "....a dog wasnt worth a damn, unless his azzz was filled with lead (buckshot)"

I watched an interview with Bob Baffert (Bode trainer) right before the Preakness and he stated that I'll Have Another, if he won the Preakness, had a shot at the Triple Crown because he had the pedigree and running style to be a distance horse. He may not be the freshest horse in the Belmont, but none of the horses will have ever gone that distance before so he has as good a shot as any of the fresh ones.

hey Bon, Roy McFall told me once that he trained horses as well as a young man in WA. I think there are quite a few of the old time dog trainers that were horse trainers first.
