Jon & Brisnet’s Ed DeRosa discuss the fastest contenders in the 2012 Belmont Stakes. I’ll Have Another will be the favorite for the first time in his career, but are there any other horses fast enough to end his Triple Crown run?
Watch it. Comment.
|1||I’ll Have Another||109||It’s his superior cardiovascular system that gives him a huge shot at history|
|2||Union Rags||103||Johnny V is a great fit, as laid-back colt needs a strong, aggressive ride|
|3||Paynter||107||Has tremendous upside and appears ready for the big time; Monster threat|
|4||Dullahan||106||Only 1 ¾ lengths behind Derby winner with wider trip; Fresh & dangerous|
|5||Alpha||104||Distance the biggest question for all, but he’s bred to handle it better than any|
