Sunland Park

I heard Sunland Park is the target for Justify
50 points to the winner - plenty to get into the Derby.

Staying away from the Big boys and possible derby points would probably make sense and getting what might be a little bit easier field but the problem after that is that with the date of the Sunland being 3/25 would they run him again with 6 weeks before the Derby or go off 6 weeks break.

They did make a rider change. A bit surprised.

Especially when you consider the botched rides for the similarly-owned Abel Tasman that theoretically could have cost her the Eclipse Award.

However, when you are dealing with 3 (never mind 1) big owner groups with a stake in the horse, you have to figure that at least one of their genius racing managers came up with the demand for a "name" rider.

Well said Spalding No:

DVD handled him perfectly in his debut. There is no reason to believe that he isn't capable of handling him in pretty much any scenario that he may come across, however, there is probably a handful of hands in the veritable pot...

Baffert has been a bit critical with some of his comments about rides the past few weeks.

I am not big on rider switches to big name riders. I still remember Bailey trying to get on both Azeri and Vindication. One worked, one didnt. I feel like there can be some karma with that stuff as well.

Riding for Baffert is tough work, you are expected to work 5-8 horses for him yet he can get upset enough to boot you right quick.

Did even Apollo not race in January of his 3-year-old season?

Catches a pretty decent field for a 1st level allowance, at least pre-scatches

1st time versus winners
1st time around 2 turns
off track
field loaded with speed
likely gets caught wide

1/9...seems like a good spot to take a stab against, likely in a pick 3 or double should I find something in the other races.
