Good Magic

Anyone else think hes overrated and a play against this weekend? I thought he tripped out in the Juvenile.

It's hard to find fault with Good Magic. I thought he was pace compromised in the Champagne and ran well, and then he won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

They still need the points, so I think he will be cranked up.

I think he's better than Classic Empire. Similar breeding top and bottom, both Raise A Native, both Buckpasser-x. Both won the Juvenile and both an early favorite. Magic appears to be training brilliantly right now while Empire had some trouble last year. Magic is my pick, for now. If he does well this weekend then I will play him again in the Future 3 exacta pool the following weekend.

After thinking a bit more, Good Magic already has 24 points and can clinch a Derby spot just by running 2nd this weekend. Would he really be cranked up for this?

The points thing is kind of overrated at this point. All the big points races are coming up later and a 1-2 in any of them gets you in. Even a 3rd gets you in if unless you are coming in with none.

I'm having a tough time finding value in this race.

Yep. Just ran through it with a much respected guy, and we simply said "just watch and enjoy". It is a race in which you find the 'next out' kind of horse.

I think Free Drop Willy is the only play in this race. I think he is sitting on a good move ahead after a decent prep race over this track.

He can't lose Tom because he is scratched

Marconi looks like one Pletcher's Belmont Stakes tapit types ... not sure why he didn't go the Tampa route.

Has a good bounce to him.


I don't have any great ideas here
