A Total Eclipse in the Sword Dancer

Today's Spa feature is the G1 Sword Dancer Invitational and there's an excellent chance that a minor upset could be in the making.

Indeed, Main Sequence (2-1) made an excellent U.S. debut taking the G1 United Nations at Monmouth with a strong late rally. Euro bounce, anyone?

Not saying that will be the case but not willing to take a short price to find out; I'll take whatever value I can get with Twilight Eclipse (5-2), who did the dirty work in the U.N. but paid the price in deep stretch.

Now the West Point runner is stretching to his best distance, the Albertrani barn is having a strong meet, the trainer also profitable in LAY-3 scenarios, the case here.

Taking Twilight Eclipse to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with the favorite.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1592

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 485-308-244

Amount Wagered: $3,184 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,276.00
