Don’t Go to Sleep on This Guy
The racetrack axiom is the place you lose it is the place you win it back. And, so in today's two featured graded event, we're looking at the richest race on the card, the Grade 2 Mac Diarmada and are calling for a minor upset.
On proven ability, Twilight Eclipse (5-2), multiple Grade 1-placed and a winner of five of 14 lifetime starts is the "best horse," but that's not always the best way to bet, is it?
That's why we're going right back to Mr. Mott and his Slumber (4-1) to crash today's marathon party. He had little chance in his seasonal debut, the G2 Ft. Lauderdale in which he was taken far back off a slow pace and was forced to angle widest into the stretch and was only beginning to lengthen his stride well inside the sixteenth marker.
With a race under his belt, the added ground, and a switch to position conscious Johnny V., we're looking for him to make amends.
Taking Slumber to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with the classy Twilight Eclipse.
