Didn't realize that, are those Twin Spires M/L to bet advanced pool?
2012 I'll Have Another beat Creative Cause in Santa Anita Derby and CC was done at 9 FL. Yet MB had IHA a longer Derby odds than CC. Never took MB's line in a 20 field in consideration. Stack em and rack em ticket construction.
Anybody want some free clean snow?
It is ridiculous, truly......thanks for posting the final odds, Rob. Big surprise to me that Concert Tour was not bet down more.
DogsUp said...Essential Quality is Derby Doggie Delta today and will run Oaklawn Saturday. Was canceled last week.
And it's a whole Saturday since then, and still closed. :) And most everyone in my neighborhood still can't drive out of their driveway. Today it will start to thaw out
We got the most snow in Arkansas, from what I can see That's 18-22 where plows and sanders are not common and many people do not even own a snow shovel. :)
thankfully they have the whole first part of the week to tend to the track, I bet it is a real mess.
That is a lot of snow in short fall anywhere.
Upstate NY gets a bit of Great Lake Ontario effect.
Snow here has been flaky light. Easy shovel. Plow guy does driveway.
!I was glad! We had snow last night. Happy it snowed so I didn't want to go out.
Hoofnote: I smoke cigars in my house and get artist paint on my jeans, floor and walls. Stayed home no OTB.
So.... I didn't go to simulcast and bet a substantial $ on Knicks Go.
He was forced to run on the rail by Charlatan worst part of the track today.
Gosden told his jock to stay in the middle of the track and Eagen gave him a great ride.
Lauren Stich's pick and I liked for my exacta with Knicks Go who I'm biased with
Because of Paynter. Still can't believe he lived to breed.
Fine observation. You know I'm into the anecdotal information of a race.
This was a $20 mil-yon purse. Winner. TEN. LARGE. Jockey a mil at 10%. Agent 25%. And that agent represents Johnny Vee and Rosario. AND Agent stood close to making much more for just putting it together
Short story Johnny Vee gets literally taken off a plane for Covid clearances and Rosario has foresight to update his credentials to make flight by a photo nose.
Antennas (Dogs) up this gave me consternation to not bet Knicks Go. Why didn't the agent forecast and check, war game the Covid + Airline needs. And JV couldn't rebook for resolve. BTW.
They weren't going to a neighbor's BBQ. A walk over..
I just felt they were not more than ready. Smith got out- jocked where it counted.

|Official Field - Pool Four|
|2||Candy Man Rocket||-||-||35-1||30-1|
|10||Hot Rod Charlie||34-1||40-1||35-1||30-1|
|11||Hush of a Storm||-||-||-||50-1|

|24||Mutuel field (all other 3-year-olds)||6-5||9-5||3-1||10-1|
Damn.. The Great One + Collaborate are already on the radar. Connections will wak the best of 2 proportionately in this pool.
Math now: IF one bet $20 EQ at 7-2 win = $50. Versus May Derby bet $1 Exacta wheel..EQ all @ $1 exactly only has to come back $90 for same @$1. With chances for more
Always worth a look, compare the Derby future pools with the Euro bookmakers:
Greatest Honour is the most Popular bet at 12-1 over there
Prevalence at 16 -1 is 5th most popular, and I haven't looked at him yet
so much more to learn. Thanks Tex.
top 5 popular bets: 83 percent have bet on these top 5 listed. 17 % all others
Greatest Honour (12/1) Life Is Good (10/1) Essential Quality (8/1) Concert Tour (12/1) Prevalence (16/1)
Greatest Honour 43.75 % of the bets,
