G3 Holy Bull; Lots of Talent and Intrigue
I'm not one of thoae wise guys that's going out of my way to try to beat juvenile champion Shanghai Bobby (4-5) in today's G3 Holy Bull Stakes. But it's just that Bern Identity (4-1) was really remarkable when second in the Delta Jackpot, his 2-year-old finale. Find the replay online and check it out, think you'll see what we mean.
He showed class and toughness at Saratoga last summer and didn't have the best of trips behind the champ in the Hopeful. Price and recency rate the edge and that calls for the minor upset.
Taking Bern Identity to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with 'Bobby", and adding Gulfstream Derby winner Itsmyluckyday (6-1) to the exotics mix.
