Megan Hilty Scores another SMASH Hit with “I’ll Have Another”

4:44 pm Horseracing Handicapping, My POV

I love her on Broadway (especially in “Wicked” where I believe she improved on Kristin Chenoweth’s Glinda), I love her on TV as “Ivy” the star of “Smash”… why oh why did I not listen to her in Louisville? She picked “I’ll have Another” to win the Kentucky Derby. I overlooked him completely!

Megan – I’ll never doubt you again!

It was an impressive win over a very tired “Bodemeister” who had set record breaking splits during the race. Why? I’m so surprised that Mike Smith rode him so hard instead of letting him relax and settle in behind the speedster “Trinniberg”. We all knew only two things about this race:

1) Trinniberg would race to the front

2) Trinniberg would fade badly

Why didn’t Mike Smith (the jockey on “Bodemeister”) let him do that on his own?


What will happen in the Preakness? I don’t know how the horses will come out of this race. “I’ll have Another” looked cool enough in the winners circle. But beat up “Bodemeister”? that’s a big question.

There’s a very good chance that if he’s entered in the Preakness – just 2 weeks away – that he’ll be the betting favorite. That’s because he’ll either have a new jockey or one that’s been read the riot act by a soft spoken, weakened trainer (due to health issues) who must be genuinely pissed off!

“I’ll Have Another” closed brilliantly, and should get a big share of the betting public’s money because of today’s effort. Remember – the Preakness is even longer than the Kentucky Derby (ouch).

More later… stay tuned!
