Why will Firing Line win this Saturday the 2015 Preakness Stakes … #Preakness #PreaknessStakes #Preakness2015 #Pimlico

Firing Line

Firing Line

To keep it simple, drew the absolute best post position in the field, will benefit from the battle of the Baffert trainees plus a little help from Mr.Z this time, he will run 4 to 8 lengths from lead on Saturday and on the turn if he makes the lead change this time, they won’t see him coming and he will crush the field of the Preakness with authority.

Breaks from post No.2, he will get his revenge from American Pharoah, the racing gods might be watching over Baffert and have Dortmund break strongly to the inside after the gate opens, karma always awaits it’s revenge, and Shared Belief will be watching comfortably from his stable this time around, who knows that could happen right? or maybe not, what’s true though is, that he breaks a little better that his stable mate at post No.2, and if AP literally “blinks” Dortmund will have the advantage positioning himself in an uncompromised trip. Better physically this time around, he will not be beat by American Pharoah this Saturday.

He won after being whipped more than 27 times !, fuuuully extended and barely passed Firing Line at the final half furlong, he will pay for that effort on Saturday. Above that, he breaks from post 1, the slightest mistake and he will be in deep waters and to avoid deep waters he will have to put a little extra to get out of the hole quick and could pay for that effort later. In the Derby was the first time that he was truly asked and two weeks is no time for true recovery after the Derby effort, if he does win, it will be mind blowing, but it will be very unlikely in my opinion.
