Stay Put

Exhi, Researcher highlight Ben Ali

Polytrack specialist Exhi, who won four straight races last year on the surface including the Coolmore Lexington Stakes, will likely be the betting favorite despite making his season debut in the Ben Ali Stakes.  The field of five also includes Stay Put, Researcher, Dean’s Kitten and Mister Marti Gras.

PAULICK BELMONT INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: RACING AND BASKETBALL

In our last week of three-year-old Triple Crown polls, there is little movement in our top ten. One newcomer to Paulick Belmont Index brought to you by Vinery LTD, Todd Pletcher-trained Interactif, debuts at 9. Additionally, Dave In Dixie makes his first PBI entry in 13th place. We would like to take this opportunity […]

PAULICK BELMONT INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: DEFINING GREATNESS

Despite several defections from last week’s projected field, our voters kept the top three of Ice Box, First Dude and Fly Down in order. Dublin’s departure (previously ranked sixth) means that no horse will run in all three Triple Crown races since 2001. And Setsuko ankle inflammation kept what many thought would be a […]

PAULICK BELMONT INDEX brought to you Vinery LTD: A SPLIT PERSONALITY

And then there were 18…voters that is. The Paulick Preakness Index has closed but we will be offering the Paulick Belmont Index between now and June 5 when the third leg of the 2010 Triple Crown runs at Belmont Park. Rather predictably, Ice Box leads the poll after his strong finish in the […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: TODD PLETCHER AND THE ’27 YANKEES

Due to nothing that happened on the track, our deadlock at the top has been broken with Eskendereya leading the poll despite Lookin at Lucky’s lead in first place voting. It appears there is a synthetic bias with some of our voters, who despite Lucky’s win on dirt in the Rebel Stakes, undervalue his […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: TIED AT THE TOP

What are the odds that there would be a tie at the top of any poll with 28 participating voters (unfortunately one of our voters was unable to weigh in this week)? Pretty good, it appears. Unlike other polls out there, the Paulick Derby Index shows a dead lock for first with Rebel Stakes winner […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: AN ‘AWESOME’ JUMP

While the top four stayed the same, there were some interesting developments in the Paulick Derby Index brought to you by Vinery LTD. The most obvious was Awesome Act’s giant leap to number nine in our poll. Last week, the British invader did not receive a single vote from our 29-vote panel. While […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: DELAYS HURTING THE TRAIL

By Ray Paulick Is it just me, or is this year’s Triple Crown trail looking more and more like a Winter Olympics short-track speedskating race, with lots of false starts, problems with the racing surface, unpredictable results, and a narrow focus on two principals from the East and West.   In short-track it was Apolo […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by Vinery LTD: BANKING ON SOME UPSIDE

The saga of Ahmed Zayat’s Zayat Stables and the Fifth Third Bank that sued the stable took an interesting turn over the weekend when Eskendereya ran away and hid from nine rivals in the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park. Just as Fifth Third was pushing for the authority to take over and […]

PAULICK DERBY INDEX brought to you by VINERY LTD: SHINY METAL OBJECTS

  As far as three-year-old races are concerned, last weekend proved to be a bit of a…washout (pardon the pun). Santa Anita postponed their Saturday card where PDI top ten contenders American Lion and Tiz Chrome were scheduled to go against each other in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes. Additionally, the Las Virgenes was to […]
