    He won’t win

  2. Geoff Logan says:

    He is something special. I wonder if a horse has come into the Met unbeaten before


    Kenzo, if I “organize” you 5/1 for Rainbow Bridge, will he win ?

  4. Fyndraai says:

    Hi Kenzo, dont know if you have inside information but if Rainbow Bridge’s prep goes according to plan and Mr Sands elects to run him in the Met, l would like to take a bet with you.

  5. Ian says:

    They will all have to start running now to beat Buffalo Bill Cody

  6. kenzo says:

    WM I would never take 5/1 or anything less than 10/1 on RB. He’s won average races so far and got way overrated for beating non-triers on the day….

  7. Noted Kenzo ….good luck

  8. Graham Hurlstone-Jones says:

    Early Tote Favourite is fair enough but Rainbow has not beaten a lot. A simple perusal of the opponents he has faced tell me he needs to beat a good one first before I see him winning the Met and he has not run the distance. Pocket always won within a length or two so maybe Rainbow will do enough and win with a 200 to go every time. Black Caviar won like that as well, Pocket would make you suffer but win he did. Rainbow does win easily so maybe a lot more to come. Not for me just yet. My heart says Legal, my head says Snaith otherwise Rainbow is the next Pocket !!

  9. Josh Brown says:

    First time i heard that horses remember who they raced against, like RB ran against ordinary, a reminder of Oh Susanna, he ran against ordinary 70 and 80MR fillies in his days, nothing special because some still havnt won any feature races of note, then Oh Susanna won the Met, if the horse are good he will win it, Sands deserve to win since his previous hot favourite Met Met horse died years ago before he could race
