Barbaro Will Win the Triple Crown
I have a bet going with Brooke Barona that Barbaro will win the triple crown. Every bet I made on Saturday was a loser because I am very greedy now and want a BIG score, so I only replica omega watches bet triples. My wise guy pick was Cause to Believe, and Steppenwolfer and Jazil and Sweetnorthernsaint came up big in my numbers. So to make the rest of the series interesting--clearly Barbaro will mop the Preakness field-- I wagered Brooke a meal with drinks at Arno's in the city that we will finally have a triple crown winner. Jazil's closing moves in his last two races tell me he's a real Belmont Stakes threat, so I am taking somewhat of a risk here.
