A Horse to Watch

With a house full of Mothers Day revelers, there's no handicapping but here's one from the stable mail without further research. I bet on Veiled Prophet off the layup at Keeneland--might even have been a selection in this space--and, sorry, but don't think the connections were too serious that day. Now he shows up in Chicago today, in Arlington's ninth race. I know he's not as fast as these on performance figures, but he will be live here at a price. Taking Veiled Prophet across the board off the possible stiff-and-ship at 8-1 or better.
