I do believe that Runhappy will run them off their feet and I do like Cavorting, but because the odds will be low I have decided to play a pick 3 in races 6-7-8 and a pick 4 in races 6-7-8-9. With a little luck the tickets may pay at least what it costs to play. My pick 3 for $1.00 bet will be 10,11 with 2,3,6 with 4 for a total cost of $6.00. My pick 4 for $1.00 bet will be 10,11 with 2,3,6, with 4, with 4,5,10 for a total cost of $18.00 or $9.00 for a $.50 ticket. Good luck to all and may they all run safe and sound.

I was poised to select Finest in the La Brea until I saw Gary Stevens' recent sprint record: 4 for 70.
That is almost unfathomable.
Maybe Mike on Bird (#1)?
I still think Finest will have the lead at the top of the stretch, but the favored closers appear too formidable, IMO.

In the Malibu, Watershed is interesting. He certainly has a bright future ... Whether or not this is the breakout race is Tbd, but I can not bet Runhappy at odds on.

Nice call on the LaBrea, nice tri box, I sure wish I had paid a little more attention to the Roman's filly.

I wasn't overly impressed with the LaBrea. It was rather slow, but it was nice to see Birdatthewire win a G1 finally. She is a nice filly. I am starting to think she is a one-turn 8 furlong-type horse.

Runhappy could train himself. He's surrounded by chaos, but he's just incredible. I hope they don't screw it up. I thought Marking ran well and showed some heart running after Runhappy.
