Stay Thirsty may be too much of a wildcard// Coa gets his dough// San Felipe field begins to take shape// Bind works

Some handicappers (and Ragozin Numbers) are saying don’t get too chalky in the Gotham.  The thought is that Stay Thirsty is too much of a wild card at the price// Baffert says The Factor doesn’t get tired and threw in the Rebel as an option along with Sunland Derby// Meanwhile the probable field for next weekend’s San Felipe is getting clearer// Jeremy Plonk’s weekly review gives Soldat a #1 ranking.  More of a “what have you done for me lately” choice than anything else.  Nonetheless he brings up an interesting comparison between Soldat and Derby winners Barbaro and Big Brown being labeld “turf” horses early in their career// Bind shows up on the work tab again.  Still hoping fever spreads after his next allowance.
