Any ideas who has the inside edge? I just read that Bellamy Road, who won the Wood Memorial last weekend, equaled the Aqueduct track record for 9 furlongs and got a Beyer of 119 in that race. Bellamy is owned by George Steinbrenner and is one of Nick Zito's many Derby candidates.
Think he might be a candidate for a big bounce?
Should Bellamy Road win the Derby and Preakness, I'd like to see one of the Derby also-rans come back and beat Bellamy in the Belmont so Zito can experience the joy of victory---and the agony of defeat. What goes around comes around!
The Santa Anita Derby was won by a big longshot, and all the favorites except Wilko (the Breeders Cup Juvenile champion) finished up the track. Anyone think that Wilko will beat the BC Juvenile-Kentucky Derby jinx?
