The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


If one is seeking a single for the Early Pick 4 or Pick 5, one could do a lot worse than I’m a Sure thing (6-5). And the thinking is that support for Dark Pool (7-5), for Mike Maker and Irad, should provide bettable odds for his fans, sequential-pool players included.

Not only does he own the best Thoro Graph figure at this trip over the close second choice, but it come on this course a well spaced 38 days ago. Christophe Clement and Tyler G add to the appeal.

I’m a Sure Thing has never run poorly in Hallandale, never out of the money with a pair of seconds and thirds. His best effort was his last, his debut at 11 furlongs and recency doesn’t hurt the marathon types.

He rates to sit a very good trip breaking from the pole in this three-turn affair.

Singling I’m A Sure Thing and betting him to win, hoping for even money, and taking a cold exacta with Verify (5-1) with white hot Jose Ortiz.
