I do not consider Three Technique sitting on the X of the 0-2.
His pair of a 6.25 is a healthy sign of a developing 2 yr old, it was not the needed top to fulfill the definition. He regressed with a wide troubled trip and still won the next heat of an 81 day layoff.
TG numbers do not tell the story of this quirky mile distance at Oaklawn. It’s a very short stretch favoring up close runners on the inner paths. Shoplifter and Three Technique are doubly compromised here by running style and post position.
Nucky & Gold Street should provide a lively pace and Silver Prospector should be able to sit a perfect trip and pounce on the pace setters. Big Advantage vs the outside come from out of it types.....
TBD and certainly not enough of a price to get excited about.
