Going with the Oaks/Forrester/Derby Pick 3. .50cent wager


Friday Race 11 The Kentucky Oaks. I know Timeform has this race listed as a fast pace. I can't leave #8 Motion Emotion off my ticket.

If you look at this horse...this horse is the only horse that has consistently run against really good size fields and for the most

part she's been staying up there for 2nd. She is like the John Oates/Art Garfunkel of being in 2nd. Everyone made a big deal

Mike Smith landed on Omaha Beach in the Derby. Well he is riding Motion Emotion! #3 Lady Apple beat Motion Emotion, but had to squeak

by on the rail to win and you are getting 20-1 odds. #4 Bellafina most likely will be the winner, but she's run against small

fields and I am not sure how she reacts with dirt in her face. #10 Champagne Anyone may benefit if this pace does get super hot. #14 Restless Rider

is parked on the outside and had a dream trip in the Ashland, but was beaten by a 52/1 shot. Loomed in last 2 and couldn't seal it. Concerned about

#7 Jaywalk and this is the best odds you will get from her. Redemption?
