Thanks. That means tossing White Abarrio and Cyberknife for me. And include Tiz The Turfer as well.
Ya know, I have been thinking about Tiz lately, wondering if the track is off, mightn't he move up considerably? I know "they" say that a great horse can run on any surface....perhaps that's true.......but also worthy of note is how many non-great horses move up dramatically on an off track. Wondering if Tiz is that high-odds horse that surprises on a wet track?
Any thoughts on CD's surface when it is wet? Does it more resemble the footing of turf or synthetic?
Depends how wet. It gets firm to a certain extent when the Churchill track is wet, kind of like running along the beach on the wet sand near the water.
Counter-intuitive Overanalizing up the rail on a sunny day wet cuppa track.
MONTY HALL factor of 3. Derby factor of 20.
As of right now....i have 8 for usage in my verticals or 40% of the field. Going to whittle it down to 4 in the next 2 weeks for a decent size super/box.
Yep i did toss the 3 you mentioned above for various reasons.
I'm waiting for the draw then I will do four $1 superfectas
a - Epicenter
c - ???
Assume straight, I would put Crown in for third.
I love Early Voting but it looks like they might wait for the Preakness. If they could get him to slow down just a little….
Same here but i'm using 2 $1 super/boxes
