No fewer than six of the nine horses entered in today’s Hallandale finale are dropping out of stakes company. So, then why are we enamored of Willy Boi (6-1)?

For one, the price will be more than fair, especially with a low profile jockey named. But wait, there’s more.

Returning from Tampa Bay, ‘Willy’ is turning back to his best distance (5-for-12) over his favorite surface, a worthy 5-for-8.

Better yet, this is the third race in his current form cycle and trainer Jorge Delgado is a profitable 27% efficient in LAY-3 scenarios. We expect a wakeup call today from the gelded 5-year-old.

Betting Willy Boi to win at 5-1 or greater.

Also key-boxing exactas with returnee In Due Time (5-2),making first start since last seen in the 2022 key race G3 Lexington (next out winners), and Celestial Glaze (7-2), racing in top form and turning back to his most effective trip.
