I saw somewhere that Crowded Trade was at 55-1. The writer listed him as a "deep closer". First of all, I haven't seen enough yet to move him up from my honorable mentions, to my top ten, and I'm a shameless MTR promoter. 55-1 is definitely too low at this point. Secondly, how based on that one race can he be classified as a "deep closer", after the bad start he encountered?

My guess: Somebody didn't watch the replay, read the top line call points 4f,6f,8f, etc

and noticed the closing splits. years ago I asked that question and was told it was an intern

That did that. end of answer. 

Sometimes I think morning line makers get in a hurry and does that same thing. 

After his next race he could be labeled a front runner.

Bris I don't always agree with their style labels either you do your own dd.

I have seen their last race data ex, A Closer with the fasted 6f time, things like that.

Crowded Trade was at 75-1 when I bet him.....still too low, but I took a flyer in your honor :)

I hope he at least makes some legitimate noise in the Trail!

As do I!

Like anything in this weekend's points races?  I think Smiley may have found a good spot, and Runway Magic might be good....

My prediction is that Concert Tour gets bet way down.....as well as Senor, after he takes the Risen Star :)
