So what you guys looking for in pool 4? Crazy Classic Empire is the early favorite...

10-1 on the field probably isn't reality but I'd be all over it at even 8-1. Iliad a bit intriguing as well

I'm liking the All Others button right now, especially for exacta box wagers and more especially at 13-1. It feels like a Golden Soul type year. That button could potentially cover 8-10 horses in the gate. Might as well wait to see how the preps shake out Saturday afternoon before getting carried away.

I love a handful of horses and the field over Cloud Computing... Something just screams Bodemeister to me about that horse.

As for the field its not really the greatest bunch,

Hence, American Anthem, Petrov, Patch, Local Hero, Term Of Art, Fast and Accurate, Lookin At Lee, Sonneteer, Royal Mo... who am i missing?

Any bucket of bolts that hits the show or possibly even the bottom of super pool in any of the final 100 point preps. The last two years were chalk, the two previous were exotics bombs away. It's a great exacta box wager given the number of combinations it buys come derby day.

I wish McCraken's odds would float up a tad more

I boxed the 5 Pletcher horses in an exacta 1,2,14,17,21 I like the will pays and I feel like his horses have run well and been sound. I think One Liner is way under the radar.

My goal was to use Always Dreaming thoroughly since I already covered McCraken to some extent previously and need to see him prove it at 9F. I made the wagers when the probables were nearly twice as high. Still respectable value in the exacta pool when closed.

$13 Exacta 1/24 @ 85-1 (this covers any Golden Soul, Commanding Curve type clunk ups plus at least a couple legit ones including Hence).
$6 Exacta 1/15 @55-1... It's been chalk the past two years.
$3 Exacta 15/1 @50-1 ... More chalk.
$3 Exacta 15/24 @73-1... Again, got some goofy covered on the cheap.
$3 Exacta 1/2,3,5,10 @192, 558, 435, 78-1. The 2, 3, and 5 are RAN horses that could do well this weekend. Then thew in Gunnevera as this year's Exaggerator style.

Along with a couple random boxes with the 24.

I wheeled the field in the exacta for a buck. Spent 22.00

Really looking forward to the Arkansas Derby especially since Untrapped is scheduled to run with blinkers. He hasn't made much ground in the stretch this year, but maybe the blinkers will keep him more focused. I also have him at 72/1 in the Derby Future wager!
