POST TIME 5:05 PM EDT--With the scratched of #3 Newsdad and #7 Fifty Proof the complexion of this race changes considerably.  Turf is good and with Fifty Proof out of the race, #8 Ioya Bigtime moves up in a big way as he becomes the controlling pace.  #3 Lucky Chappy, #5 Belo Acteon and #9 Amira's Prince should relish both the softer going and distance.  #1 Twilight Eclipse is still in with a shot but don't know how he'll handle the soft going.

UPDATED WAGER:

$30 Exacta 8 with 3,5

$10 Exacta 8 with 1,9

$1 Trifecta 1,3,5,9 with 8 with 1,3,4,5,6,9

This was one of the few races I hit today. I had the #9 $5 W-P.
Cocoa was right about the Irish bred....Wonder where he heard that before?
Pace on the lawn is usually so feeble that many an entrant is just there to assure they don't walk to the half in 51 or something....With soggy going, the main track is a haven for the front end.Not so often on the green where that tends to occur on bone dry courses more often.
Like.
