Race 6: 5-2-1-6

The 2 and the 5 will both win you bets. I’d suggest you exacta box all four of these horses.

Race 7: 3-12-6-9

Bet the 6 and the 9 across the board. You should be able to get decent prices for them. Again, use an exacta box on these four.

Race 8: 4-1-5-6-12

Bet the 4 and the 6 to win… Use an exacta box on all five.

Race 9: 3-7-4-12

Bet the 3 to win the race here,

Race 10: 2-5-1-7-10

Bet both the 2 and the 5 to win. Bet all in an exacta box.

Race 11: 4-12-13

Bet the 12 to win.

Kentucky Oaks
Abel Tasman won the Kentucky Oaks.

I was pretty darn excited when we heard the announcement and that’s when I thought it ok to come down to the Winner’s Circle. We could see clearly that there was interference. Mike was hitting left handed, driving them into Bolt.

“His last work was off the chart. We were very excited going into today. Mick is a good trainer. He might be new but he’s not fresh. He’s got some judgment about him and I give him the credit.”
