Wasn't confident on 2nd/3rd, so made my third largest win bet ever on EQ. loved 9/5 as they loaded, disappointed in 6/5. Trakus data supported the tri, but I tried to get creative with the 8 in all spots.
The odds were all wrong for my strategy, see my message 173 for performance numbers
My pedigree angles stopped me from using those top 4 , Hot rod Charlie was fit like the winner
He was last on my ped score and I kept looking at 12f , and thought it was to far for Itm
But the 4 fittest came in. I Didn't bet EQ it was so stupid. I passed. Congrats on your win !
Essential Quality showed the field what happens when you have a superior quality 12F horse on the track.
I bet he'd do fine on the grass? They should send him over to some classy races on the lawn over the pond.
I can never understand the big drop in odds AFTER the race goes.....seems like with everything computerized, prices should be immediate.
I found a bet on line Thursday that had EQ at 2.60, so I made my bet then, quite happily.....
The 7.50-1 on the exacta was rather low, but the 21-1 on the tri was better....and the 60-1 on the super was very good, all things considered
Ended on a High Note..for sure..
But is it over...
Who won the Derby?..
Mr P / Nor Dancer
That was easy..
Starting with message 121 in this thread I scored the angles that worked and the ones that didn't
work for the Belmont stakes this year, for those interested in both performance angles and pedigree
scoring from placements in a pedigree that work for the belmont.
Baffert's Lawyers will keep it in the courts for years .
Spectacular Stuff Smartyslew..for sure
