Jon and Joel discuss three key races from the weekend, including the Rebel Stakes (G2). Which of the 3 winners – Secret Circle, Gemologist and Street Life – move up the TCI Top 10? You may be surprised.

TCI Top Ten with top speed rating

Rank Name Bris Comments
1 Union Rags 103 Clear-cut Derby favorite has yet to show many weaknesses
2 Creative Cause 107 Back on track as California’s top 3yo after strong San Felipe win
3 El Padrino 111 Logical move to now run in FL Derby as Pletcher’s first-stringer
4 Hansen 105 1 1/8-mile Wood will present a big test for the champ
5 Bodemeister 102 Predicament: SA Derby is home, but Ark Derby may be easier
6 Gemologist 98 Comeback was as good as you could have wanted; Wood next
7 Alpha 100 Louisiana Derby quietly becoming best option for him?
8 Take Charge Indy 109 Curiously passed on easier Tampa Derby for harder FL Derby
9 Dullahan 98 Good return on turf will set him up perfectly for G1 Blue Grass
10 Paynter 93 Illinois Derby next; Talented colt trying to buck history

      My apologies, it’s a bad habit to think and say Martin when thinking about Baffert’s horses :)
