O'Neill tweeted that He's Had Enough was on a plane with Lava Man headed to Florida, so it looks like he will go in the FOY.

If it was competition alone, GP makes sense.

Normandy Invasion looks like the most interesting triple crown horse here. Been waiting on him since the Remsen, and his works look good on paper.


Palace Malice comes in off a perfect prep. Chasing a loose Majestic Hussar on the off-track for 7f. Galloped out very well. Has tactical speed. Looks like he would love to be near the pace and run on when it comes back.


Mylute looked like he was finally going to stay on his right lead... until Anna gave him a hard right hand in the stretch last time. That was probably the time to bet him, even at $1.10. He's kind of an unknown. Figures to contend, but probably does not put it all together.

Also interesting that Lezcano gives up 3 in the FOY for this spot. Is is Chad's charisma or is Normandy Invasion the real deal?

he looks good.

He was clearly a better animal than Overanalyze in the Remsen.
However he hung badly. No excuse for losing that, and it still took strong handling from Dominguez on Overanalyze to beat him.


Also a disappointing race in his debut. It was wide in a decent race going only 6f, but it was not a strong effort.

He looks like a triple crown horse physically, and he has that kind of run. Somewhat interesting is that he is fairly muscled, and Brown usually has leaner type horses.

I don't short prices off layoffs, especially in stakes races. However he is the number 1 bullet for Brown, who can get a horse to fire, and he's been recording fast works. I hope he is a derby horse.

Good news, looks like excellent race.
Bad news, I won't be there this year due to personal commitment.

A little bit better post in the FOY might have contributed to the decision.
