Why He Will Win
EARLY11 writes, ?1. He is simply the fastest horse in the field. 2.
He has the most courage of any horse in the field. 3. In the year
of Seattle Slew's death, and in the year of the 'Black Horse'
(subtitled War Horse, whatever that all means), the horse God's have
deemed that War Emblem will win. 4. He has the best trainer. 5. He has
a great jockey. (Either this message is right or the other one, take
your pick).?

Why He Won't Win
EARLY11 writes,?1. It will be a large field. 2. Baffert is doomed to
win the first two jewels. 3. Espinoza is one of the worst riders for
the Belmont 4. Chavez and Bailey make Victor look like a cowboy 5.
Perfect Drift and Wiseman's Ferry are sitting on huge efforts. 6.
Don't underestimate Proud Citizen. Look for some horses to press him
early. Victor panics and takes off at the 1/2mi pole. WE gets tired,
drifts badly in the stretch and holds on for 4th.?
