And so, on to the main event – will something happen that could knock Goldikova off the top of Twitter’s trending topics?  Follow along to find out…we’ll be posting our customary wrapups-with-Blingees after key races on both Friday and Saturday (with or without any jockeyfights).

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds
1. Prayer for Relief Rafael Bejarano Bob Baffert 30-1
Can’t see it happening.
2. Flat Out Alex Solis Charles L. Dickey 6-1
Seems to be coming into his own, but he couldn’t beat Havre de Grace in the Woodward.
3. Drosselmeyer Mike Smith William Mott 15-1
Last year’s Belmont winner has proven his victory was no fluke – could hit the board.
4. Ruler On Ice Garrett Gomez Kelly Breen 30-1
This Belmont winner still needs to work on that.
5. So You Think Ryan Moore Aidan O’Brien 5-1
Most well-traveled horse in the field apparently likes working on dirt…
6. Ice Box Corey Nakatani Nichaolas P. Zito 30-1
His recent efforts have not inspired confidence.
7. Rattlesnake Bridge Calvin Borel Kiaran McLaughlin 30-1
Seems overmatched here.
8. Game On Dude Chantal Sutherland Bob Baffert 10-1
Comes in with a nice record; the Chantal Sutherland/Bob Baffert combo should be the most telegenic in the field.
9. Stay Thirsty Javier Castellano Todd Pletcher 12-1
Travers winner is certainly talented, but I’d prefer his chances next year.
10. Havre de Grace Ramon Dominguez Larry Jones 3-1
I want her to win because she’s the best, not just because she’s The Filly.
11. Headache Paco Lopez Michael Maker 30-1
Won last time out, but a huge step up in class.
12. Uncle Mo John Velazquez Todd Pletcher 5-2
The Dirt Mile would have been perfect.
13. To Honor and Serve Jose Lezcano William Mott 12-1
Flying under the radar a bit here…worth watching.

Predictions: Havre de Grace, So You Think, Stay Thirsty, Game On Dude
Longshot: Drosselmeyer
