You’re On Your Honor in the Vanderbilt
Today's Spa feature is the Grade 1 A G Vanderbilt Handicap, a five horse field that features two of America's fastest horses: Delaunay (8-5) and Gentlemen's Bet (9-5). We prefer the latter.
Delaunay always seems to do his best racing at Fair Grounds, whereas Gentlemen's Bet, 5-for-6 at the trip, is a true Road Warrior type. Further, he defeated his main rival last time out and gets four pounds in weight for the rematch.
Taking Gentlemen's Bet to win at 6-5 or greater, boxing the exacta with Delaunay, and adding Bahamian Squall (7-2) to the exotics mix.
