AAAAAAAAAAAAnd down the stretch they come... The Official Triple Crown Thread

So who's everyone's favorite? ESPN.com had a story saying that Tapitt's trainer feeds him eggs and GUINNESS to the horse for breakfast... thus, he's my favorite.

I've got Tapit, Lion Heart and Imperialism in a triple, Tapit to win, and my longshot is Gold Rush to win.

What's everyone else goin with?

Once the skies opened up, I threw my support behind Imperialism, since he had a win on an off track and most others didn't even know what rain was. Of course the first words from the race announcer after "And they're off" were "Imperialsim got bumped at the start by The Cliff's Edge", damn you Cliff's Edge. So I knew I was screwed, he was 17th out of 18 at the first turn.
But he did close nicely for show.
A $60 investment ($20 across the board) returned $62 when he paid $6.20 to show. Feels a bit like kissing my sister.
But it was quite the interesting race given the conditions, and now Smarty Jones should get plenty of hype leading up to Pimlico being 7 for 7.

The $5 Million bonus he got for winning Rebel Stakes, Arky Derby and KY(Jelly) Derby affords Smarty's owner the luxury of opting out of Pimlico, otherwise he'd be there for sure considering how much potetntial income a Triple Crown brings.
They should run him anyway.

it would be a shame if they don't run him... even though i don't think smarty would have won the derby on a dry track, ya never do know... what happens if it rains at pimlico? and then rains at belmont? if some of the other "favorites" come down with injuries prior to a race? why would ya wanna pass up a chance at history, just because you already have 5 mill in the bank. i dunno... just my .02

I concur. He should run...in fact it looks like it may be a small field at Pimlico, 7-8 hossies, so it could be an easier run for him, and if he wins, mega-hype for Belmont.
He should only skip it if there's a real health risk. Otherwise you gotta give history a shot. If he loses, he loses, the sun will rise on May 16.

Dude if you streak next to the horsies I'll pay your bail. Just be sure you make it onto TV. And tackle Smarty in the process. His odds suck, so I hafta place money on some other hoss even though Smarty looks like the class of the field by far, the way he was pulling away at the wire at Pimlico was impressive. I'll probabably toss some dough on Rock Hard Ten again. Payoff ended up the same for 2nd in Preakness if you had him across the board as Smarty did for winning.
