Betting That Patience Is Virtuous

If ever a horse looked like it would appreciate the min-turnback to the odd distance of 7-1/2 furlongs in today's feature it's Gaelico whose lone two wins came under a similar dynamic.

Eclipse winning Dale Romans shot but missed with this guy earlier in the meet but will benefit from that experience with more patient handling from Jose Lezcano, back aboard from a cozy inside post wheere the anticipated quicker pace will have this 4-year-old relax until the rider says go. He'll need patience to get it done in this very competitive figure.

Taking Gaelico to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing in exactas with Shakespeare's Brew, first-time Chad, and adding Van Citra, with Saez sticking, and price shot Tampa shipper In The Beat to the exotics mix.
