Already one good price (plus a nearly 300-1 perfecta) so far this morning (PDT) at Monmouth for your Haskell Day. But Monmouth 5-8 look drowsy. The card revives at the end. Woodbine pretty good all day.
For the lovers of less parimutuel excitement — perhaps you are not partaking of the straight pepper diet and require no flavor for your fare, or else you have recently undergone coronary bypass surgery and are required to keep things chill; though, on the other hoof, nothing spells sudden, massive myocardial infarction than a favorite who doesn’t run a yard! — maybe Albuquerque 9 will be of comfort.
Super-speedy on the front end at Los Alamitos 4½f. Similarly the oddball 1m70y at Prairie. Oppositely, Presque 6½f looks open to all styles.
Haskell Day. Still the best running was 1987: Alysheba, Bet Twice, Lost Code. Gene St. Leon always took flak for how he rode the latter. Granted, he was up against C. McCarron and C. Perret!
