Yeah, you know, for a Mott horse to run a huge number and repeat it is almost impossible under any circumstances, esp. with a three-year-old second-time starter coming off a sloppy track blitz--thinking now, looking back, the maiden race had little behind him--there was a Brown runner who finished second and ran just OK today. All your observations are good. I'll say, I'm not sure what Rosario was doing. The horse was so relaxed in the post parade, and he feels the need to press a 99-1 shot through insane fractions on a deep-ish track. My honest impression is he held pretty well despite the insanity. The triple crown is just not Mott's game though. The triple crown is Baffert's parallel universe. Once in a while someone else steps up, but not too often. Trying to beat Baffert in a triple crown race is like trying to beat Chad Brown in a grass stakes race in August.
