She had a perfect trip and rode the best part of the track the entire race. Why did she have no business running down a horse that is probably better off the pace?

Shell never get a better trip than she had last time so Im not sure how shes going to get that again and deal with better horses.

I'm probably the worst handicapper in this discussion, but isn't there a decent chance of Yuugiri getting out and getting gone vs these gals?
She is quicker than Echo Zulu early, dare I say by a comfortable margin, and she can control this all the way around.
Yes, there are some serious late runners to hold off in Secret Oath, Kathleen O and Nest, but she's a Shackleford and loves a brawl.
Set a fast pace last out and dug in like her daddy to get the win, then galloped away after the wire like nothing happened.

She probably can't hold them all off, but maybe she can hang in there for a piece at a very nice price.

Basically, I'm against Echo Zulu here and I smell a rat with Yuugiri or maybe even Hidden Connection

But why did she have no business running by Venti Valentine? Use your words. Pretend you don't just use phrases trying to sound smart.

My selection is Secret Oath. I think shell win it without any others having enough of an excuse that they could have otherwise won.

Lukas is the best. To be able to still get it done in his 80s is just amazing.

Secret Oath was a very deserving winner and there was never any doubt.
