To flatter MONARCHOS even more, just look at what the horses who ran close to him in his last 3 prep races...
CONGAREE & INVISIBLE INK ran great in the Derby. I saw RICHLY BLENDED destroy the field in the Withers today via TVG. DISTILLED won an ALW over THUNDER BLITZ, and then won the ILL DERBY. THUNDER BLITZ after the loss to DISTILLED, captured the Flamingo.
That leaves OUTOFTHEBOX. Can't say that I know WHAT he has done since the FLA DERBY...
But clearly MONARCHOS hadn't been running against "fluff."
CONGAREE is the only horse to finish even CLOSE to MONARCHOS ever since he became a "goodie." He (MONARCHOS) has beaten every OTHER horse he as ran against his last 5 races now by daylight. What a compliment to CONGAREE!
There used to be a guy who worked at the Stardust named Walker. He has since moved on to Caesar's Palace I believe, but he used to post head-2-head prop bets on the big races. I would love to see a CONGAREE vs MONARCHOS Preakness matchup, b/c I think he will turn the tables if they meet up in Baltimore.
And who knows...? Perhaps POINT GIVEN will rebound to beat both of THEM, but I think CONGAREE has an extremely high probability to run 1-2, and to finish ahead of MONARCHOS.
