Who you guys like? The easy answer is ThreeRules but im going to try to beat him with Gormley or Classic Empire. Syndergaard looks like a good one too but screw the Mets...

its all about the price, and how they look when they get on the track.

Not This Time has beast potential.

This to me is another "fan" BC race, as opposed to bet.
I'm very interested to see how this horse handles the ship and circumstances.

I wouldn't be surprised if Klimt came back to win this.

I see the race heating up and these guys feasting.

If someone else thrives, they are a pretty good colt.

I think it's vengeance time for Klimt. Hoping to get at least 7/2 or will be using many here! Theory, Practical Joke, Not This Time, how good are these ones? This is one hell of a horse race!

I take that back. This is no longer just a "fan" race.
21-1 on Theory is preposterous.

Win and place for me.

Going to be real interesting in South Florida this winter with both Classic Empire and Not This Time wintering there. They were dominant. Maybe Baffert can come up with a 2yo in California to spice up the Derby Trail.

Whereas last year, the Nyquist-Swipe lopsided rivalry took its show on the road at Keeneland and proved that the West Coast juvenile far outstripped all other regions (as it continued to do through most of the Triple Crown), this year it was decidedly the opposite.

Lookin At Lee has proved to be a good barometer. He was beaten in his 2 starts prior to the BC by Not This Time and Classic Empire each. Both defeated him by open lengths in those respective races. This Saturday, they repeated the form (while finishing close together) with Lookin At Lee several lengths behind in 4th (just behind Practical Joke). So evidently, the KY-based juveniles have the others (CA and NY) over a barrel at this point, and what is tempting is the prospect of a historical Classic Empire-Not This Time rivalry if they can keep it up next spring.

I'm not going to hold my breath on Klimt. The Elusive Quality line is yet another source of unsoundness, and his son Quality Road appears no different. Klimt has terribly wide action and he has labored in his last pair (ominously his only 2-turn starts to date).

Baffert unleashed a new one named Beach Bum by Arch on closing day that romped going 7f in its debut. The bottom side is riddled with Grade 1 winners including Point of Entry, Gold Beauty, Sky Beauty, Maplejinsky, Pine Island, Dayjur, and Pleasant Home.
