Value Makes Me Smile

Sorry for the delay--Internet issues the culprit here

No preamble, as a result. We believe half of the uncoupled Galluscio pair will provide value. Taking Johannesburg Smile (8-1) at 4-1 or greater in the New York feature, and boxing an exacta with the very classy favorite, Friend Or Foe (4-5).

Don’t Overthink Overdriven

No need to build a front porch on this thing: Overdriven (3-5) will be an overwhelming favorite to win today's Sanford; deservedly so. The drama is learning whether Bashford Manor runnerup, Power World (5-1) will complete the exacta.

Overdriven to win with no price restrictions and a cold 6-7 number.

I Feel Pretty

The Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks might have drawn only five horses but it is one of the more contentious renewals of the modern era: Talent, potential, horsemanship, all elements will play a part.

Strategy might have played into the defeat of Kentucky Oaks winner Plum Pretty (3-1) at Hollywood Park in that the connections played the game too cautiously. But in this five horse affair, aggressive handling might be the preferred tack, and no one is better suited to that scenario more than Bob Baffert's filly.

This is a G1 which might actually be a prep for another Grade 1, the highly prestigious Alabama Stakes at 10 furlongs. The thinking here is that this is Plum Pretty's "Alabama."

Taking Plum Pretty to win at 2-1 or greater.
