I picked "ORB" as a favorite.
If you are not clear on the differences between a "FAVORITE" and a "LONG SHOT," perhaps you should refrain from wagering all together!
Orb put up an amazing time considering conditions.
That horse has a shot!
What was his time compared to previous times. I know the track was sloppy
Can't remember the final time, but the announcers said the early fractions were the 4th fastest in history which is pretty dang fast given how sloppy the track was. I was very glad to see the Janney and Phipps families and Shug get the win and very impressed with Orb.
Meanwhile over in my neighborhood the Gold Cup races had perfect weather but it didn't stop this carnage! Photo is from a maiden hurdle, not the big race but check out the fallen and riderless horses!~
The Taos Ski Valley Turf Accountant called it right! He said Rosario was "on Fire!" :D I didn't place a bet, didn't look like much profit in it. But the local bookie did come into my office Monday with some performance sheets and gave me his opinion.
The track variant is huge in determining final times. I do think this is the best horse of the group and the track he runs on isn't that important. His prep races were at Gulfstream Park which was speed favoring but he still won yesterday was for closers he still won. I think he has a real shot to win all three.
