SATURDAY: Hot Springs, Trail’s Last Major Stop

NOTE: Responding to reader's suggestions, trying a new format to help define the relative strength of opinions and accordingly will employ a new way of listing choices, delineating contenders in groupings of A's, B's and C's. The latter two rankings, B's and C's, are horses which ideally should be used in multiple vertical combinations--exactas, super-exotics, and the like. As such, 'B' and 'C' horses can be moved up or down the scale, only,one level, reflecting the reader's opinions. 'A' horses are prime choices which can be used in equal measure in horizontal pools. For bookkeeping, when more than one 'A' horse appears, the horse listed first will count toward the running totals.
