    Yup. Tough race to handicap this year, depending on how you view the top horses.

    I thought it was telling however that Mike Smith selected Omaha Beach over Roadster. I don't see a lot between them but Smith is hard to argue against.


    I'm probably going to try and hunt for a price further down the field in this one. Early lean is Vekoma, but might land somewhere else after I get a chance to really dig in.

    Always a good day of betting as well.

    I know it’s important with all horses but post position is critical for Smith and OB.

    Seems to have the right running style and cruising speed that Mike can have him in position on the back stretch.

    He might be long gone when the running starts down the lane.

    I was just thinking about my betting strategy this morning. I think I will go pretty easy on Friday and save for Saturday again.

    Looking at the future forecast looks to be a washout both Friday and Saturday. 80% and 70% of rain Friday and Saturday...

    We are planning to do the same thing we did last year. Go to Sam Houston on Friday night, get all of our bets for Saturday down then. If a horse scratches because of the weather then we'll just take the refund.

    Yeah but I don’t have a lot of $$$ in my account currently. I like to bet cash on big days when I can.

    Hard to go against Bellafina here, but I like Chocolate Kisses as a possible bottom of the exotics type of horse. Serengeti Empress as well.

    Post Draw broadcasting on Periscope now. I remember it being on Wednesday, but I guess they've changed it to Tuesday now.

    I'm liking Tacitus at this point. Still has to contend with Omaha Beach and Improbable. I think the post draw is going to make it very tough on a few of the favorites going in.
