The Oracle’s 2019 Triple Crown Extravaganza
As we begin the absolute most exciting time of the horse racing year, first let’s reflect on all that has been accomplished so far. We’ve had a grueling long prep season which all started with the Iroquois at Churchill Downs on Sept. 15th and ended 44 races later on April 13th with the Arkansas Derby. Over that time frame, we’ve got a chance to see horses like Baffert’s Game Winner put up an easy win in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile, a huge upset by Harvey Wallbanger to pay $61 in the Holy Bull at Gulfstream, Haikal prove worthy by beating Instagrand in the Gotham at Aqueduct and lastly, let’s just give credit where it’s due with Omaha Beach who not only beat Game Winner in the second division of the Rebel but has been training lights out since and capped off the Preps with another strong outing as the odds on favorite.
The Kentucky Derby field is rounding into form and as it does, so do we! For years, we’ve been the go to handicapper for the Prep races as we just seem to be a little more connected to the heartbeat of the horses, trainers, and jockeys than others. However, over the last five years, we’ve managed to over exceed by really putting it to the competition for the Derby as well. While in my mind, nothing will ever beat our satisfying win of War Emblem in 2002 when we told everyone to pound him and he still paid $41, sweeping the Kentucky Derby for 5 years straight is no small feat. Especially since Justify ($7.80) and Nyquist ($6.60) were 2 of only 9 horses to finish the Derby undefeated since 1915. Adding in Always Dreaming ($11.40), California Chrome ($7), and the unforgettable American Pharoah ($7.80) who helped catapult us to our Triple Crown Championship Title that year just goes to prove that we’re both strong and consistent when it comes to being reliable in the Run For The Roses.
This Year, we have a huge opportunity that we are extending to you that will enable us to really get to know each other and work together throughout the Triple Crown season. Not only are we going to deliver for the Derby, but we’ve put together a great package that will let you get to try us out over the 2 month period and see exactly what we’re capable of.

Triple Crown Horses To Watch:
One of the main things that my clients used to like was when I teased ‘em with my watch list. Every once in a while I’d give them a few of the upcoming horses that I had my eye on. Whether or not they were shipping into a new track location or just getting primed and into top condition for their next race, they knew that when I had my eye on one, they should too. Just for ol’ time sake, here are a few up and coming Triple Crown potentials for you:
- Game Winner, who will be Gary and Mary West’s 4th Derby starter and 1st since 2005, was undefeated as a 2 year old. Since then, he has only lost by a nose and a half-length, yet everyone seems to be turning their noses in other directions like to Omaha Beach and Roadster. Baffert and Rosario won’t be too quick to pull the trigger on him going 1 1/4 and keep in mind that Rosario is one of the best fishers in the game. Just have a feeling that Game Winner will be on top of his game and so will arguably the best connections in the race. Not sure what kind of closing price you’ll get out of him but either way, he’ll be flying down the stretch.
- Code of honor has been inconsistent as a 3 year old but last fall, Shug and Johnny V though he was the one to beat in the Derby this year. He comes out of a long and well distinguished line of pedigree including the European superstar Frankel and is also a closer type. Will Farish, out of the prominent Land’s End Farm, usually doesn’t put a horse where it doesn’t belong and after getting the nod from Shug (finally hit in 2013 with Orb after 7 attempts) and Johnny V (Hall of Famer with 21 Derby starts), it’s hard to deny that this hard running colt who bounced back nicely to win the Fountain of Youth Stakes will regress.
- Improbable, out of one of my all-time go to barns (and one of the winning-est) of WinStar, China Horse, and Starlight, comes from AP Indy, Baffert, and Ortiz. Need I say more? Yeah, I know, Game Winner is his stable mate but I just can’t help falling for all this experience. Baffert said that he didn’t do him justice with the blinkers on for the Arkansas Derby and he’s taking them off and by adding Ortiz (current Eclipse Award winner) whose is riding in his best form of his career, the connections are all coming together. Improbable might be our best chance for an overlay price as he’ll get overlooked at the windows due to his 2 race losing streak but make no mistake about it, this group of owners know what they are doing and but Baffert in charge to ensure success. BTW, did I mention he added Ortiz?
