Dreadful is a bit harsh. I can forgive his two final starts of 2017, as he was returning from Dubai and also appeared to get the famous Desormeaux stretch ride or lack thereof which were completely...

Ax Man had been at Churchill since his last start over a month ago, so for all intents and purposes he ran out of his own stall.

Dr. Dorr seems to be a versatile sort, who's probably better off shortening back up than continuing on with the major route races.

Quite the flub on my part, thanks. I failed to add back the original $2 bet to the winner's payout.

The total payout ought to be $789.30.

ROI is $1.71 unless I botched something else.
