An analysis of the runners today’s 69th renewal of the Run for the Orchids is in the Latest Columns section. The following is our guide to betting the event in the vertical pools with the usual approaching; biases and ante post odds notwithstanding:
A’s are top line selections always. B’s are exacta box inclusions bankroll and odds permitting, otherwise to complete exactas. C’s are money horses best used third and/or fourth. Personally, I allow a horse to move up or down the scale, but only one level at a time.
Horses listed across in order of Preference
A. TIZ THE LAW, INDEPENDENCE HALL
B. AS SEEN ON TV, ETE INDIEN
C. GOUVERNEUR MORRIS, CANDY TYCOON
