Winners and Losers of the Post Draw


Dortmund drew inside of of the speed, but he has the shortest distance to the rail without actually being on the rail. If he breaks good this is a perfect spot for this big horse. 

Firing Line another that got just the right post as he will be breaking from post ten which puts him smack in the middle right where you want to be. 

Mubtaahij the six post is really going to help this horse it will put him right behind the speed and give him a solid spot to stalk. 

Bob Baffert for once Bob didn't draw the rail in the Derby looks like things are finally going to play out the way he wants. 


Ocho Ocho Ocho is an obvious loser here and he will need to drop back and settle which actually may help this colt. 

Carpe Diem not a good spot for this colt he will be one of the first horses to load and with his previous gate issues this wont be a good spot for this colt. 

Materiality he will have to send from post three which is not ideal for this colt. 

Todd Pletcher I'm sure if he had the choice he would swap his posts around as his lesser two drew excellent and his top two drew terrible.

Ode to the Little Horse that could.

He was a small little gelding not much to him he was pitch black and had the heart of a lion. He was the ultimate racehorse, and his name was Shared Belief. It broke my heart into a million pieces when I found out about his passing due to colic. I have decided to go back and look at all the great moments Shared Belief has provided the sport.

I first heard of Shared Belief when he was a two year old I watched his debut win on the 19th of Oct. 2013 on TVG and all I could say was wow, and where would this brilliant animal be making his first stakes start. I didn't have to wait to long as the plucky little black gelding came back on the 10th of Nov. 2013 in the Hollywood Prevue Stakes where he absolutely demolished his competition from there the sky was the limit.  

2013 Hollywood Prevue Stakes 

The next step for Shared Belief was the grade one Cashcall Futurity his first start in grade one company. In this race he would beat Del Mar Futurity winner Tamarando,  Front Runner Stakes wi…

Absolutely love his Holy Bull win. He showed a fantastic ability to relax on the inside of runners and finish with an absolute flourish. Kiaran has even said this colt is ahead of Frosted and Cairo Prince at this stage in the game those are some pretty talented horses. He easily crushed Greenpointcrusader who I thought would give him more of a challenge then he did. The way Mohaymen re-broke at the top of the stretch gave me goosebumps this is one very special racehorse. Hopefully he stays sound and we will see just how incredibly special this colt is.
