I hope everyone is still riding high from our Preakness blog, God I love Cloud Computing! But we are past that, time to look towards the future. Let’s dive right in!
Third Place- Irish War Cry at 6/1
Ugh, Irish War Cry broke my heart at the Kentucky Derby but I have a strong feeling he will at least place in the Belmont Stakes. Irish War Cry has had many first place finishes this season and the potential for speed is there. Lock it up, IWC to place (at the minimum).
Second Place- Epicharis at 6/1
The main reason why I like Epicharis is because he’s fresh. He didn’t race in the Derby or Preakness + blazing fast speed = a VERY go chance to win the Belmont Stakes. Only reason I don’t have Epicharis winning is because he is making a long trip from Asia (that jetlag will get yaa). Having said that, I will have some bets on Epicharis outright winning but he is a lock to place.
First Place- Classic Empire at 2/1
I picked Classic Empire for the Preakness.. he put up a fight but couldn’t finish strong. With all that being said, ya’ll got to trust me on this one.. Big Buck Hunter’s gut call says that Classic Empire finally wins at the Belmont Stakes. Third time is a charm 🙂
