Alternation back to defend Razorback title

#10 Alternation(2-1) returns to the Oaklawn scene to defend his win of the Razorback Handicap.  He comes into this race off of a 14-week layoff.  Viewing his PP's indicate that he is worthy of a repeat, but, I will attempt to unseat him because of his lengthy hiatus.

My pick seems to sway in the direction of #8 Brethren(10-1).  Last year, he was among the early leaders for the Kentucky Derby.  He did have a bad outing in the Arkansas Derby, which could weaken the strength of my selection, for he did not take to  the track on that day.  At that time, he was under the care of Todd Pletcher, but has since moved on to Steve Asmussen, who has raced him the last two times against Mark Valeski, and up-and-coming stakes colt.

Others worth consideration are: #2 Atigun(4-1), who ran 3rd in the BC Marathon, #3 Cyber Secret(5-1), two-for-two at this current Oaklawn meet, #4 Donoharm(5-1), winner of five straight, and #9 San Pablo(9-2), trained by Todd Pletcher and winner of 9-for-16 lifetime.

My play will be #8 5-10-20 WPS, and a $3 Exacta Box 2-3-8-10.  That's it!!!  That's my play!!!  And I'm sticking to it!!!!

May the horse be with you. 

So, I bet this horse across the board, and he runs 4th. Then I play a 4-horse exacta box, and run 1st, 3rd, & 4th. Woulda', coulda', shoulda'. I should mention that my math was not very good coming into this race(hastily typed up the selections). Alternation was off for 22 weeks, not 14. Anyhow, you're only as good as your last race. Hopefully, the next one will be more rewarding.
