Casper Lives!

I hate doing this, as I’m not a believer that a top-figure horse can bounce and still beat today’s field school, but frankly I can’t get past Abdel’s Ghost (5-2).

He loves the surface as a three-time winner, he’s won 5 of 13 starts--with 5 exacta finishes--at the distance, has won from the pole position, blew out very sharply at his Calder base.

Further, he’s won with this kind of 4-weeks spacing and Rajiv Maragh rides him like he owns him. Gerald Procino doing fine work with this sprinter.

Taking Abdel’s Ghost to win at 8-5 or greater and key boxing him in multiples with classy turf-to-dirt Phillippe (4-1) and freshened Shrewd One (6-1).

Running Totals: (1048) 324-204-154 Total Dollar Return: $2,233.80 [win selections only]
