Quite a pot for Tikhvin Flew. He should have been in the Bay Shore if they wanted to be ambitious.

With the ML for Improbable set at 8-5 and Omaha Beach set at 2-1, might be some nice value if you like a horse other than those two.

Why, you think those two are underlays?

At those odds, no. But there is a lot of hype around Improbable and Omaha Beach...so...I’m imagining a situation where people get wrapped up in those two, we see them at even money and something-to-5, and maybe the odds on another horse like Long Range Toddy or Country House rise enough where it’s worth it to take a chance on them.

On top of that, both favorites like to be close to the pace, and it seems like it might be crowded up front or perhaps they stalk well but get boxed in on the rail a bit. So I could see the race setting up for a horse other than those two.

well its raining right now and there is a 100% chance of precipitation, they will be lucky if the severe weather doesn't shut them down during the course of the day...so yes, its going to be sloppy

I remember Lone Sailor galloping in the mud at Saratoga. I like him. It is a good race though, anyone could win.

Remember Zenyatta winning the Apple Blossom when Rachel didn't show?

I ended all bets with 8,11 while acknowledging that Improbable is the horse to beat.
