  • mdracing69 · I have seen this happen multiple times and if you are watching the odds board it is a great opportunity to make some decent money betting to show. There are some players out there that like to make big show wagers (bridge jumpers) on heavy favorites. · 838 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · Dr. Ziembia was the first to exploit the inefficient markets under the win pool. These are much more common at the standardbreds however · 838 days ago ·

  • KyOaksRunner · Glad to see we agree again! I think the only filly that has a chance to make any sort of impact in the Kentucky Oaks is California Nectar, and only as a "pacemaker" not a serious contender.. · 1128 days ago ·

Filly should do well on dirt up to 1 1/16 miles. California Nectar’s dam was a stakes placed sprinter, but the rest of the immediate family is modest.
Grade 1 winner SIDNEY'S CANDY (Candy Ride [Arg]) will seek his second stakes victory of the Santa Anita meet when he lines up for the $150,000 San Fernando S. (G2), and the John Sadler-trained colt will be the one to catch among nine four-year-old rivals in the 1 1/16-mile event. The chestnut exits ...Read More

  • humphrey · I strongly get the impression that this one could NOT win on the deeper grass surfaces which make up the majority of turf courses throughout the country. When you are running on a putting green with no moisture of springiness to it, you are essentially (as the Brits call it) running on the top of the ground....Take this one to Woodbine Arlington or Saratoga and he would likely be a regular also ran. · 1191 days ago ·
