2019 Kentucky derby and triple crown – front histiocytoma office football central

THE GRADED STAKES FACTOR. (the horse ran in a graded stakes race before march histiocytoma dog removal cost 31.) this points out horses who have competed against tough competition histiocytoma dog removal cost prior to march 31 rather than at the last minute histiocytoma dog removal cost in april, enabling the horse to be properly battle-tested. (exceptions: since the introduction of graded stakes races in the U.S. In 1973, only genuine risk in 1980, sunny’s halo in 1983, mine that bird in 2009, always dreaming in 2017 and justify in 2018 have won histiocytoma dog removal cost the kentucky derby without running in a graded stakes race histiocytoma dog removal cost at 2 or early at 3 before march 31.)

THE WIN IN A GRADED STAKES FACTOR. (the horse has won a graded stakes race.) this points out horses who have shown they have the histiocytoma dog removal cost class to win a graded stakes race. (exceptions: ferdinand in 1986, alysheba in 1987, funny cide in 2003 and giacomo in 2005 are the histiocytoma dog removal cost only exceptions since the introduction of U.S. Graded stakes races in 1973; alysheba in 1987 did finish first in the blue grass, only to be disqualified and placed third.)

THE EIGHTH POLE FACTOR. (in either of his or her last two starts before histiocytoma dog removal cost the kentucky derby, the horse was either first or second with a furlong histiocytoma dog removal cost to go.) this points out horses who were running strongly at the histiocytoma dog removal cost eighth pole, usually in races at 1 1/16 or 1 1/8 miles. By running strongly at the same point in the kentucky histiocytoma dog removal cost derby, a horse would be in a prime position to win histiocytoma dog removal cost the roses. Keep in mind that 53 of the last 56 kentucky histiocytoma dog removal cost derby winners have been first or second with a furlong histiocytoma dog removal cost to run. Since decidedly won the derby in 1962 when he was histiocytoma dog removal cost third with a furlong to go, the only three kentucky derby winners who were not first histiocytoma dog removal cost or second with a furlong to run were animal kingdom, third with a furlong remaining in 2011 when only a histiocytoma dog removal cost half-length from being second; giacomo, sixth with a furlong to go in 2005; and grindstone, fourth with a furlong to run in 1996. (exceptions: since 1955, the kentucky derby winners who weren’t either first or second at the eighth pole in histiocytoma dog removal cost his or her last two starts have been tim tam histiocytoma dog removal cost in 1958, carry back in 1961, cannonade in 1974, gato del sol in 1982, unbridled in 1990 and sea hero in 1993, with canonero II in 1971 unknown.)

THE GAMENESS FACTOR. (the horse’s finish position in both of his or her last histiocytoma dog removal cost two races before the kentucky derby was no worse than histiocytoma dog removal cost his or her running position at the eighth pole.) this points out horses who don’t like to get passed in the final furlong. (exceptions: since 1955, the exceptions have been venetian way in 1960, cannonade in 1974, foolish pleasure in 1975, ferdinand in 1986, silver charm in 1997, mine that bird in 2009 and super saver in 2010, with canonero II in 1971 unknown.)

THE DISTANCE FOUNDATION FACTOR. (the horse has finished at least third in a 1 histiocytoma dog removal cost 1/8-mile race or longer before the kentucky derby.) this points out horses who have the proper foundation and/or stamina for the kentucky derby distance. (exceptions: since 1955, the only exceptions have been kauai king in 1966, sea hero in 1993, charismatic in 1999, giacomo in 2005 and mine that bird in 2009.)

THE SUFFICIENT RACING EXPERIENCE FACTOR. (the horse has had at least six lifetime starts before histiocytoma dog removal cost the kentucky derby.) this points out horses who have the needed experience. (exceptions: since 1955, the exceptions have been grindstone in 1996, fusaichi pegasus in 2000, barbaro in 2006, big brown in 2008, animal kingdom in 2011, I’ll have another in 2012, american pharoah in 2015, always dreaming in 2017 and justify in 2018. Grindstone, fusaichi pegasus, barbaro, I’ll have another, american pharoah and always dreaming each had made five starts histiocytoma dog removal cost before the kentucky derby. Animal kingdom had made four starts before the kentucky derby. Big brown and justify had made three starts before the histiocytoma dog removal cost kentucky derby.)

THE NO ADDING OR REMOVING BLINKERS FACTOR. (the horse has not added blinkers or had blinkers removed histiocytoma dog removal cost in his or her final start at 3 before the histiocytoma dog removal cost kentucky derby.) this seems to point out that, if a horse is good enough to win the kentucky histiocytoma dog removal cost derby, the trainer is not searching for answers so late in histiocytoma dog removal cost the game. (since daily racing form began including blinkers in its past histiocytoma dog removal cost performances in 1987, no horse has added blinkers or had blinkers removed in histiocytoma dog removal cost his or her last start at 3 before winning the histiocytoma dog removal cost kentucky derby.)

THE RACED AS A 2-YEAR-OLD FACTOR. (the horse made at least one start as a 2-year-old.) (exceptions: apollo in 1882 and justify in 2018 are the only histiocytoma dog removal cost kentucky derby winners who didn’t race as a 2-year-old. Through 2018, the score is 142-2 in terms of kentucky derby winners who raced at histiocytoma dog removal cost 2. Since 1937, horses unraced as a 2-year-old are a combined 1 for 63 in the kentucky histiocytoma dog removal cost derby. During this period, the only horses to win, place or show were hampden, who finished third in 1946; coaltown, second in 1948; agitate, third in 1974; reinvested, third in 1982; strodes creek, second in 1994; curlin, third in 2007; bodemeister, second in 2012; battle of midway, third in 2017; and justify, first in 2018.)

-connections have intimated they are going to let him go histiocytoma dog removal cost (in the #1 spot, you sort of have to commit to being toward the histiocytoma dog removal cost front or getting swallowed up… I don’t think he can win by running through traffic, so GO) and I remain fairly convinced that toward the front is histiocytoma dog removal cost the place to be in this race… I expect him to fight to keep the rail and histiocytoma dog removal cost stay at least in the top six through ¾ mile

If the betting public were inclined to give him a histiocytoma dog removal cost pass for a bad start in the laderby and look histiocytoma dog removal cost at his overall record (the stuff above) I think he would belong somewhere around 12-1 here. I think he’s going to go off at a LOT higher odds histiocytoma dog removal cost than that – he’s at 25-1 right now in friday early wagering, and I expect that’s roughly where he lands.

I think he has a solid chance to get the histiocytoma dog removal cost lead or at least hold the rail without any really histiocytoma dog removal cost serious early speed in this field, and then after that – who knows? He might like the wet going, he might not get too tired out, and he might be able to finish as strongly as histiocytoma dog removal cost he did january. Admittedly, he’d need to patch together the best parts of his histiocytoma dog removal cost two wins this year to get it done saturday, but if we’re tossing out the laderby effort as a bad start, then he’s got a decent stretch of time to show the histiocytoma dog removal cost advance.

FWIW, totally agreed on taking him down, and not only because I was invested in the #1 who got completely compromised by the wide drift. I honestly didn’t really see how bad it was during the race histiocytoma dog removal cost – my eyes went to the #13 making a really big move along the rail, and it wasn’t evident in real time how the gap opened up histiocytoma dog removal cost so much for him from the #7’s movement.

On another line… Did anyone else try to pay attention to the #16 GAME WINNER? Holy cow what an awful trip, he got pinched early, swept wayyyyyyy outside to try to gain ground, and ended up back up into the pack somewhere around histiocytoma dog removal cost 7th or 8th, I suspect. Nobody is going to give him credit for running 8th, but holy cow that was a serious effort.

Have to think TACITUS takes his fully expected 5 week histiocytoma dog removal cost break and comes back for the belmont, where I will love him. The rest? Who knows, but the preakness could have more than the usual intrigue. Against a median-quality field that includes MAX SEC, where would we put the odds on COUNTRY HOUSE? Maybe something like a 4-1 second choice? Maybe higher? He definitely has a chance to be that fairly rare histiocytoma dog removal cost derby winner who runs in the preakness but isn’t the favorite. (mine that bird was the last, I think)
