Coliseum’s first-place finish at Del Mar in November was promising to say the least. Unfortunately, his sixth-place finish at Santa Anita on Jan. 5 wasn’t very encouraging, even though this thoroughbred will still have some legitimate hopes heading into all three Triple Crown events.
I have no idea why Gun It is the No. 3 favorite on the board to win the Kentucky Derby, but I say, save your cash when it comes to wagering on this mount, seeing as how he’s got just one win in three starts.
A pair of wins in five starts suggests Gunmetal Gray could have a decent chance to get an upset at one of the three Triple Crown races in 2019, but then again, a pair of fifth place finishes suggests he could bomb at all three as well. I’m saving my money on the inconsistent Gunmetal Gray and you should too.
Sure, after a pair of wins in his first two starts in late 2018, Dunph was looking like a real threat to challenge for something big in 2019. Unfortunately, Dunph finished ninth at Churchill Downs in November and third at Remington in December and I’m just not feeling this mount right now – or at least until further notice.
Much BetterI’m sorry, but Much Better needs to be…well…much better. Following win and place finishes in his first two starts, Much Better finished an awful 14th at the Breeder’s Cup, but encouraging third at San Anita, I believe this mount is too wildly inconsistent to be taken seriously at the moment.
Plus Que Parfait
Besides the stupendous name of this mount, Plus Que Parfait looks like a good horse to back in 2019 to do some damage and challenge for at least one of the Triple Crown races. Plus Que Parfait recorded a pair of third-place finishes in his first two starts before winning at Keeneland in October and then, finishing second at Churchill Downs in November.
The pair of first place finishes Complexity recorded in his first two starts last year were great. Unfortunately, his third-place finish at Churchill Downs in November was a bit of a bummer. Still, I like the value this mount is offering heading into 2019.
Two wins in two races at Del Mar last year suggest this thoroughbred could challenge in 2019. Roadster is offering some tremendous value heading into 2019, seeing as how he’s never been beaten.
Like Roadster, it’s two up and two down for Instagrand after he brought home the bacon at Los Alamitos and Del Mar last year. Inexperience and a lack of quality competition could change things for this mount in the big Triple Crown races, but right now, I expect Instagrand to challenge.
This thoroughbred has made three starts while finishing in the winner’s circle each time out, including his last race at Aqueduct on Dec. 1. Make no mistake about it Maximus Mischief is offering plenty of value heading into 2019.
Top Three Triple Crowns Picks
With four first-place finishes in four career races, including the 2018 Breeder’s Cup in November, everyone is expecting big things out of Game Winner in 2019, particularly seeing as how this thoroughbred is a Bob Baffert-trained thoroughbred.
Unbeaten in three starts after another dominant stakes victory on Dec. 8 in the Los Alamitos Cash Call Futurity, Improbable has the look of a serious contender for 2019.
Bulletin is a thoroughbred you had better watch out for in 2019. With a pair of wins in two starts, this mount has yet to taste defeat and looks like a horse that is offering some stupendous value heading into 2019.
