Tom Keyser, The Sun......................... Monarchos..........Dollar Bill.........Congaree

Keyser's comment: I never believed in Fusaichi Pegasus and picked against him last year in the Preakness. I believe in Monarchos. John Ward Jr. has trained him with the Triple Crown in mind. The colt is primed for another winning performance. Congaree has run two gut-wrenching races in a row. Another in the Preakness may be too much to expect, no matter who's riding him. Dollar Bill, who again looks terrific, merely needs a clean trip to display his ability. Point Given is the mystery horse. Was his Derby performance an aberration? He's a looker, but I have a feeling he may not hit the board.
