King of the Holy Bull


With the exception of the early date and mile and a sixteenth trip, today's Grade 2 Holy Bull would be a highly anticipated Grade 1 such is the depth of talent.

One could make a case for many of these but we will stay with Cairo Prince (3-1) until we see a chink in the armor. Kiaran McLaughlin seems to be on a mission with this guy and we agree that if it weren't for overconfident handling in the Remsen, he'd be undefeated in three lifetime starts.

I like a lot of these colts for their potential down the road but 'Cairo' has been firing bullets at Palm Meadows all winter, his stalking style should provide a good trip given an alert start, and his electric turn of foot is well suited to the speedy Gulfstream surface.

Taking Cairo Prince to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with fast, undefeated Coup de Grace (4-1) and adding the blinkered Almost Famous (8-1), the highly promising Wicked Strong (8-1) with new rider Javier Castellano, and strong working, underrated Intense Holiday (6-1) to the super-exotics mix.
