Doug O'Neill, trainer of I'll Have Another, says on NBC that if his horse was trained by Pletcher or Baffert he'd be 8-5.

I might include this horse.

Not coming from the 19th hole............plus he came in 6th by 19 lengths in the slop.........Leparoux rode him, cant stand that jockey & yes, I know hes been hot.

Yeah, that 19 hole with a rook is too tough.

Nice hit if you had it............this horse had the best final times of any other horse his past two races before the derby & after the 5 month layoff.........I saw those times but from the 19th hole & a no name jockey, couldnt pull the trigger..............

Yeah, the draw was the only drawback especially with the jock, but he rode a perfect race and could take the crown.

I hope Bode skips the Preakness like his daddy & comes back to beat IHA in the Belmont...............

No way Bode runs. Just not worth it. Long career ahead.

Bode runs and wins the Preakness, he ran a huge race in the Derby and was the best horse
I had a little on the 19 and made a little
Bode is the pick in the Preakness,

I don't think he will run and if he does he will be way over bet. Hansen will be on the lead. Remember, its not always the fast fractions that does a horse in, its the dueling factor.

That he could go 45 and change and 109 and change and be right there at 1 1/4 you better believe this horse is for real. Dueling or no dueling, that smokes 99% of the horses in America. That coming off a 108 Beyer looms large over this below avg crop of 3 year olds.
Class of the field and should run 1-2 with IHA.

How do you figure Hanson will be on the lead? Bode is just faster than him and he already burned Hansen out once and will do it again and again. I feel bad for the horse if they go up against Bode again in the Preakness.

I think Hansen needs to be right up on the pace. You will see that in the Preakness for sure.
