Yesterday? An eroded Francesa got into it again. For 3 minutes. With Jeff in Manhattan again. Over handicapper Brad Thomas. (In 1999 for the Belmont Stakes, Thomas touted a straight $5,343 trifecta that included Lemon Drop Kid at 29.75-to-1 on top, followed by Vision and Verse at 54.75-to-1.)
Thomas is known for picking long shots. (Possibly because if one hits a long shot - folks recall it 18 years later.) Last May he told a breathless Francesa that Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist was the likeliest horse to win the Preakness. He loved Cherry Wine as well.
Exaggerator was your winner.
