Can’t get too fancy in a seven-horse REBEL STAKES where the favorites appear to be the right horses. I want to see Nadal (5-2) go two turns on a wet track in against talented rivals before accepting a hyped highly likely odds-on.
Taking Basin to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with the favorite and adding Three Technique (7-2) and Silver Prospector (7-2) to the exotics mix. Just taking what I am given here.
The JACK RUBY STAKES at Turfway this evening is wide open, lending itself nicely to potential vertical value even if some of the favorites top the ticket. We’re doing it thusly:
A. Invader (3-1), Halo Again (8-1)
B. The Stiff (12-1), Finnick The Fierce (6-1)
C. Fancy Liquor (8-1), Field Pass (7-2)
