ya drosselmeyer was also one of my top choices with his latest performance in the gold cup and strong works said he would repeat. i had game on dude to win and a trifecta with him drosselmeyer and Flat out. Now a days u can expect a strong performance from Ruler, but he just never has that kick to ever take a race. He more won the Belmont mainly because the others failed at the distance compared to him beating everyone, if that makes sense. As i said in rant, i didnt go to
Fairmount to make my bets, but i played on paper and made $30. that with the fact just cause it was on paper i wrote down game on dude for $20. Breeders' Cup is the best part of the sport.
Good thing I didn't bet. I lost all of the ones I picked. So disappointed about Goldi and Havre de Grace but I'm glad Mike Smith got a win. I know he would have preferred to win it with Zenny but hey, a win is a win. Game On Dude did great. Drosselmeyer just surprised everyone, especially since he'd had such a lousy season after the Belmont. This totally throws Horse of the Year into a loop.
