Default Race of the year so far? THE MET MILE

Metropolitaian Mile Handicap Field
Purse: $750,000; 1 mile, 3-year-olds and up; Grade 1

1 Saarland J. Velazquez 114 8-1
2 Peeping Tom S. Bridgmohan 114 10-1
3 Najran E. Prado 116 6-1
4 Proud Citizen J. Chavez 116 10-1
5 Wake at Noon E. Ramsammy 115 15-1
6 Aldebaran J. Bailey 119 3-1
7 Congaree G. Stevens 124 6-5
8 Justification J. Castellano 113 30-1

If he runs to his most recent 5 figs (120,115,118,116,116) Congaree seems to tower over this field. But maybe Najran, with the track record for a mile last out (and a 111 BEY) can keep moving up. Aldebaran has never shown the ability to run figures over 115 or so but who knows maybe he puts in a career performance like Swept Overboard did last year. Plus we everybody's favorite whipping boy Saarland looking to lug up for a piece. Plus last year's Derby and Preakness 2nd and 3rd.

What a race.

I personally like Najran if he goes off at 6:1 or greater. But I'm cheering for Congaree to just keep it going. Who knows, by the end of the year, he might be the best horse in the land at 7, 8, 9, and even 10 furlongs. Certainly the mile is just about his absolute perfect distance though.

Any of the lesser names 3yo's? Good history for sprint bred 3yo's in this race. In fact wasn't this race the highlight of Honour and GLory's career?

I think we should all chip in, pool our money, and buy a $2 win ticket on Saarland!

It is a sad state of affairs for TB racing when this could be considered as the race of the year so far.

Harness and QH racing fans don't have to worry about the possibility of their participants doing what the connections of most TB stars do. The best horses show up to the best races and consistently battle each other on a regular basis. There is no ducking and dodging with them.

Wouldn't get my vote either. I'd have to give it to the 4th at Portland Meadows.
