Go! Mario! Go!

The Belmont then, a routinely difficult race to handicap, the difficulty of which doubles when the Triple Crown is on the line. That is because the decision making process can get clouded by emotion, this time around emotion coupled with a likable Dope City rider guiding the star horse around the racecourse.

I prefer Paynter over I'll Have Another. If you are inclined towards throwing a few bucks on a longshot, take a close look at Five Sixteen, one of the few horses in the field, including the two already mentioned, to be bred with a mile and half in mind.

My ticket? Paynter, I'll Have Another, Five Sixteen and Dullahan. Going to have more drama packed into the race than the whole Stanley Cup Play-offs bundled together thus far.

See you at the Finish Line, motherfuckers.

The best rags to riches story ends with Mario crossing the line first!

Sadly, it is not to be. He was scratched this morning with a tendon problem.

Race is much more less interesting w/ the scratch of the winner of the first two legs which I blame for my half ass handicapping.
Going with a straight exacta of Union Rags-Paynter for $20
Would love to see a longshot light up the board but don't think anyone over 10-1 will W P or S.
Good luck Beer
