Jeannine Edwards says Exaggerator is the biggest challenge for Nyquist, who is primed to win it all.
Edwards said, “The thing I like about Exaggerator is that he runs his race every time. It’s obvious he has talent. He is a nice horse and he’s a horse that gives his all every time he runs and the post positions are going to play a huge part in this race. If Nyquist gets trapped down on the inside breaking from Post 3, with so much speed to the outside of him, that could set up a clear run for Exaggerator. It’s going to be a very tactical race.”READ MORE: Flash Floods In Maryland Close Some Schools, Roads; Several Rescued In High Water, MSP Responds To More Than 500 Calls
Davis and Edwards took a moment to revisit the memories of Barbaro and the tragic race on the ten-year anniversary. Edwards said, “I was here for that and I did cover Barbaro’s story extensively, [ESPN] invested a lot in his story, which was tremendous. It was because of the way he touched people. I remember being here and watching that race and when I saw the shape his hind ankle was in my eyes filled with tears and I immediately felt sick to my stomach, because when I saw that I knew it was a fatal injury.”
