My advice has always been to bet any and all of them at 8-1 or more. Don't be picky, they are all classy and exceptionally well bred and trained to perfection. Who can handle the travel, the climate and the Lasix is unknown, so might as well shot gun it for profit with all Euros in the BC, 8-1 minimum....

it feels decidedly weak in all division this year on turf. Even the CB horses feel a cut below their norm.

I love identifying chaos races and taking a swing with reasonable intellect.
I'm not always good at that. I just had a feeling that this wasn't going to be Heart to Heart's day, decided I wasn't inspired by the others, and took a pass.

I am kicking myself because I thought Knicks Go looked good in the post parade, but told myself he had no shot in hell. I went with Unionizer instead. Derp.

Damn. 70/1 and he walked.



Can't remember a shot like that in which they won by ridiculous open lengths in a big race at those odds. I'm sure there is one, but that was stunning.

IN the Spinster I'm going to play the w/p and exboxes with. I'm looking to get a ground saving trip. the distance should suit her.

The closest thing I can think of is Volponi in the '02 BC Classic. He was "only" 45-1 though. Then Mine That Bird's Derby.

Those are the exact 2 I was kind of recalling.



40/1 and 50/1. This was 70/1. Just effing crazy.

Yes, very crazy. Then again, a lot of times the odds are a reflection of people's opinions and not the ability of the horse. Knicks Go's next race will hopefully provide a clearer picture.
