Intimidation Factor

Posted by on 5/6/2014 10:18:12 PM

Some online sports betting site players may dabble on a fight on occasion and as it is common in that racket to duck opponents, California Chrome will be experiencing the same kind of soul searching from his Preakness rivals.

Only a handful of Derby contenders are in prospect to challenge CC again in Baltimore. Derby third Danza is eyeing the second jewel and Ride on Curlin, who ran well to be 7th at Churchill could also be under consideration for Pimlico.

It???s not so much of how fast California Chrome ran in the Kentucky Derby, it is the way he did it that may have intimidated some foes from going on.

New shooters will be plentiful so let???s take a look at a few that could very well jump into the Triple Crown fray.

Before we get into the possible new candidates, know that runners that passed on the Derby and won the Preakness are few and far between.

Since 1970 only 7 horses skipped the Derby and won the Second Jewel. And one of those winners was the ultra classy Rachel Alexandra.

Bayern is one of the 6 new faces that may run on May 17. The runner would have been highly regarded in the California???s Chrome San Felipe but he had a setback with a foot bruise but showed up in the Arkansas Derby to run a well-beaten third.

The Bob Baffert student ran in the Derby Trial on April 26, finished first by a nose, but had his number taken donw. The blood is there as his sire won the Grade 1 Suburban at the Kentucky Derby distance of a mile and a quarter with a 103 Beyer. His dam was unraced and both of his siblings won routing. Speed is his game; he trained fast since the last outing and will be on or near the pace if she shows up in Baltimore.

Social Inclusion is very intriguing. He broke his maiden toying with rivals last season and then just put in a smasher beating Honor Code in his other start on March 12 when winning by 10 with a ridiculous 110 Beyer Speed Figure. In the Wood, he set a legit pace but had nothing left at crunch time.

His final time on March 12 of 1:40 4/5 set the track record that was set a month earlier by Devil???s Cave. But maybe even more impressive was his winning margin of 10 lengths. Honor Code got the place and was over 17 lengths in front of the third finisher, who also was 17 ahead of the next rival.

As far as the pedigree is concerned, Social Inclusion has a right to perform as the distances widen. His sire won Grade 1 races routing and was second in Mine That Bird???s Kentucky Derby in 2009.

His Grade 2 placed dam was sprint only but his lone sibling to race Saint Midas won routing.

Ring Weekend is 2 for 7 in his career and the only time he was out of the money was in the sloppy debut. It took him awhile to figure it out but he overcame a wide trip to graduate and then proved it was no fluke by taking the Tampa Bay Derby. Forced to steady last time in the Calder Derby, he will be trying to make amends for the flop as the chalk.

As far as the blood is concerned, his sire was a Grade 1 winner routing, his dam was best on turf but she dropped successful router Champ Safi. Trained by Graham Motion, this colt???s best asset could be his ability to relax and kick.

Players should key in on daily routines and pay attention to how the runners are taking to the Pimlico surface.
