The way this race is shaping up they should've created a pick it all right for a dime. A perfect fecta. Pick all 12 runners in correct order for .10 or .20.

Might be a yawn of a match race with little value behind, even in the super / pentafecta.

Then easygoer and I would complain about a rider not riding for 10th .

They are not willing to subject the horse to that.
It also places his entire barn in jeopardy of being quarantined for the minimum of 14 days. There are other owners he has to consider with the decision.

From what I gather, here's what is going on at Fair Grounds. If a horse tests positive, then the entire barn is quarantined even if that is the only horse with a positive test. The affected horse is removed from the barn and is placed in one of the isolation tents that Fair Grounds set up on their parking lot due to a lack of space on the backstretch.

I do not know if those horses are actually standing on raw concrete, or if some type of bedding material like rubber mats or wood chips are used too.

Just for the hell of it I'm going to box a couple tri's leaving both Arrogate and Chrome completely off the board. Sounds stupid but I've seen crazier things happen in this sport. A little chaos theory and dumb luck could sweep half the trifecta pool. Worth a $20 dollar stab, kind of like a Powerball ticket.
