Just Shut Up and Bet


Never having been the specialized sprint distance of 5-1/2 furlongs for older runners on a major circuit, we were seriously considering a position against the favorite, Speechify (9-5).But upon further inspection...

This Team Valor runner won two sprints at 6F before trying one mile in a failed experiment to stretch out. Turning back to three-quarters last time, he finished a very good second to Happy My Way, who recently returned to finish second in the Sunshine Millions Sprint behind the redoubtable Ribo Bobo.

This is considerably easier. He has enough positional speed given his strong pace presence in last, an outside post and a switch to Rosario will make him one very tough out.

Taking Speechify to win, no price restrictions, key-boxing exacta first and second with Capital City (4-1), third behind the choice last out, and Padilla (8-1), 1-for-1 at the trip and from a clever turn-back outfit.
