No great shakes here.I didn't like anybody.But I thought at 2 minutes to post the 1-12,12-1 exactas at 19.00 and 37.00 that usually are 6.00 and 11.00 were decent.I lost my win bet on Adonis but eh easy exacta bought the beer tonight!

Did anybody see this as easy money?

Sure did. The price for the exacta was a gift!!

made a couple of bucks myself with a 12 with 1,13 exacta key, but was hoping the 13 would follow Hansen out of the gate but alas he did not and was too far back and had too much to do but came on late to get nosed for 3rd which cost me the tri but always next week. San Felipe could be a very exciting race if all possibles run. Same connections on a few and some cross entered in the Rebel the following week will keep some out but possibles are Creative Cause, Fed Biz,Out of Bounds,Empire Way,Saber Cat, Liason and Rousing Sermon.
I love this time of year!

I think that was about as much as you could hope for from Hansen.

He wound up getting hung wide because of the post, but instead of running a a kamikaze first part, he relaxed off the pace and still kicked clear. It also looked like he still had some energy in reserve after the finish despite being 3-4 wide first turn.

I hated him going 10F before the race. Now that he has demonstrated he's rateable, I just dislike him going 10F. I still don't think he wants to go that far. But he'll probably become a very good miler/middle distance horse assuming he keeps going forward.

By the way, I don't think the result of the Gotham did anything to support the fast Beyer figure given to the Holy Bull. It's hard to make perfect comparisons between the trips because we are talking about various combinations of gate issues, pace issues, ground loss etc... but both Hansen and My Adonis were given slower figures for the Gotham than the Holy Bull despite the fact that they are both 3YOs that you would expect to be moving forward and IMO had easier (My Adonis) or similar trips. I still think the figure for the Holy Bull was too fast (and by definition Algorithms potentially overrated).

IMO the real lesson of that result is that no one from the rest of the field could move forward enough to even threaten the top two.

I just want to see these horses run clean trips on a fast track.Hansen with his running style might get better on a fast track,or worse because of his wet pedigree.It sounds like you are ready for this field to be whittled down.Me too.
