Treasury Bill's small play for small field

$44.00
Amount Cashed:
$0.00

 

Small field draws into this 3YO Grade 3 sprint.  Bob Baffert comes in with 50% of the field, #'s 1-2 and 3.  With the prospect of making money minimal, we'll try and see if we can make the most of this small field.  The colt that I'm looking at, would be Treasury Bill(#6).  His last out was on a wet-fast field, in which he got off slow.  Despite the bad start, he made up for it by rolling late.  Since he's lightly-raced, we'll so that this late run was his debut of realizing that he was in a race.  Based on the fact that he has now graduated, we'll key him in the early and late Daily Double.  The bet:

$2 Daily Double - Race 6 -  All & 6; Race 7 - 6 & All.  Total bet - $44. 

 

I understand your reasoning. I tend to agree with you, that he might need added distance, to accommodate his closing style. But, if he could make that late kick today, and get up. I think he might pay handsomely. Nevertheless, good luck to you on your picks. Your logic seems to fit this bill well.

I'm high on Treasury Bill as well, but not here. He's built for much longer distances and this 7f just isn't his cup of tea. Ellis has him in here to get the experience so he can come back in the San Felipe in March. I have 4 (#1, 2, 3 & 6) of the 6 on my "GQ Derby DoubleDozen" List...

... so I'd like them to run 1-2-3-4.
