Midnight is the favorite right now at 5-2.  Rombauer is 11-1 but they’re all between 5-2 and 18-1.

I think I’m just going to put $20 on Rombauer and enjoy the race without getting too stressed out.  My order for Haskins’ contest:  Rombauer-Concert Tour-Medina Spirit-Midnight Bourbon-Unbridled Honor-Ram-Crowded Trade-Risk Taking-Keepmeinmind-France Go De Ina.

off to a bad start.  One of my picks for race 1 Market Cap fell out of the gate, lost rider.  
Hope the #1 beat hozier, I'll be good if that happens.   edit:  Yay!  it did happen

That's on paper as you know, 3rd time out doesn't guarantee a forward move.

To all..The third time cap axiom is. Third time back, third time on a drop 

In claiming price or class

For sure.  Sometimes I like to take races and works together and try to get a feel for how the horse is feeling headed into a race.  I label the works slow, par, or fast.  For example, over 1:01 and over for a 5 furlong work is kind of slow, 1:00 to 1:01 is par, and under 1:00 is fast.  Of course some trainers always want to work them fast but you can kind of get a look at the big picture.

The number of combinations that are possible with 20 numbers is 1,048,575.

Many people play / gamble at all different kinds of things, yet they don't know much about the odds related to the game they are engaging in.  .
In poker, for instance,  a royal straight flush is around 0.000154% or 1 in 650,000.   

Dogs Hoofnote

There is a difference in looking at the math though.

The math for the 20 horse field is exactly. And for one specific occurrence.

And...The more perfect the handicapping and understanding of the outcome; the gross number of possibilities factor could be diminished to having a Superfecta straight in a 20 horse field.

--------------

The poker number is an extrapolate of 650,000 separately occurrences / hands delt.

And for the sake of example let's say a casino opens its doors first day and there could be a royal straight flush or there is the possibility it could neher happen
