The TCI Boys recap the Fountain of Youth & Risen Star stakes and discuss their shake-up in the TCI Top 10. They also look forward to Saturday’s $400,000 Gotham S. (G3) at Aqueduct, where another 85 points are up for grabs towards the Kentucky Derby. Can a new shooter break Vyjack’s undefeated streak and upset Overanalyze’s seasonal debut?
Watch it. Comment.
TCI Top 10
|1||Flashback||98||Assumes top spot from the injured Violence; Training forwardly and is the horse to beat in Mar. 9 San Felipe.|
|2||Revolutionary||103||May be Pletcher’s best classic contender now; Will Violence’s injury effect decision of his next start?|
|3||Tiz the Truth||92||Maiden winner moves into Top 3 on his tremendous upside for the classics; Must return to work tab soon.|
|4||Orb||102||The lone new shooter in the Top 10 is a big one; Showed his quality in FOY win and will only get better.|
|5||Verrazano||104||Not many 3yos can breeze 59 1/5 at Palm Meadows; Will be huge favorite in Mar. 9 Tampa Bay Derby.|
|6||Oxbow||98||Gets one pass, as quirky track surface made the Risen Star a head-scratcher, and he had legit excuses.|
|7||Goldencents||101||Honest colt has a lot to like; Will get his biggest two-turn test to date against top one in Mar. 9 San Felipe.|
|8||Itsmyluckyday||111||Likely FL Derby favorite is clearly the fastest 3yo by speed figs right now, but still has plenty to prove.|
|9||Shanghai Bobby||103||Champ is as classy as they come, however, he seems the least likely from this list to excel at 1 ¼ miles.|
|10||Palace Malice||102||Less excuses than Oxbow in Risen Star, but he did run greenly most of the stretch, then galloped out well.|
