Uncle Moe, Chad Brown, Todd Pletcher discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast


So they're not in the race, creative minister is your 9 to 5 favorite. I happen to think this is a pretty good version of the courland stakes that we're going to see this year. Creative minister is certainly one of the ones that has a big chance to win. Two horses just outside of them are both three to one right now on the board and they both have a big shot in here. Be better for Todd pletcher and artorias for Chad Brown. I'm going to lean just very slightly toward our tortoise. Debuted at keenland going 6 for a long, finished second, only beaten a length and a half after being about 7 wide turning for home. And coming from well out of it. They stretched them out to the one turn mile at Belmont last time out. And he got the maiden win as a three to 5 shot like you should. He beat a horse named gasoline, who's highly regarded. They were well clear of everybody else. He's by arrogate out of a ghost sapper mayor, he should appreciate extra distance. So this will be his first time going to turns and his first time going a mile in an 8th. I know the outside post is not phenomenal. But I think he's logical in the spot he's three to one. Be better has come off back to back mile and 70 yard wins around two turns at Monmouth in his most recent two starts, Louis sias picks up the mount on the son of uncle Moe, who coincidentally is owned by uncle Moe's owner, ripoli stable, Mike ripoli, of course, be better just looks like a horse was getting better and better. I don't know what he beat in those races at mom. I shouldn't say that. He beat a horse named cyber Viking last time out and he beat that horse by about 5 lengths and cyber Viking came back in one in his next start. So be better is beating decent runners and he's taking the logical step up in class. So western river, interesting spot for him. He avoids the really marquee names tomorrow in the Jim dandy of epicenter and early voting and zanden and even tawny port if you want to count them as a marquee name. And he comes into the curl and today, which seems like it should be a softer spot. It's softer, but it's not soft. And that's why he's 8 to one right now on the board horses are approaching the starting gate. Before they get
