    I like Orb again had him in the Derby.
    Exacta Orb over Mylute,Oxbow, Departing,itsmyluckyday

    The only thing I don't like is the draw Orb coming from 1 slot could be a factor.

    Anyone else have thoughts?

    Not my thoughts, but my wife has an exacta with Orb & Mylute. I can't box on my on-line site so two separate exactas and bet each to win also.

    I'm not a ponnie player, but when she says bet for me, I do!

    I'm going to put a little to win on #6, Oxbow. Also going to put in some 10¢ superfectas.

    I also had Orb in the Ky Derby. Orb should go off at 3/5, or 4/5 in the Preakness. No value at that price.

    I don't think there is any value taking a stand against Orb because he should handle this field with relative ease.

    My plan is to pass the race, and hope Orb wins. I will take a shot at beating him in the Belmont where I'm certain to find some value.

    Governor Charlie... 12-1... no reason except he's owned by a friend of mine who owns a couple casinos in northern Nevada (Bodine's in Carson City and Carson Valley Inn Minden), plus the horse is named after our former Governor Charles Russell who served for most of the 50's.

    I want to find a way to beat Orb, but I'm not sure it will happen.

    Going to try Mylute and Departing on top of some cheap exotics, but won't invest more than 20 on this race.

    Excellent call on Oxbow! I am glad Lukas won his sixth Preakness and he teamed up with Stevens for back to back Grade 1 upsets at Pimlico. I hope you nailed the super as well.

    Fish Tacos doubled the bet price with a WPS bet on itsmyluckyday!

    Off to the Belmont.

    Thanks all, I had a really good day. Rosie spoiled my superfecta but I cashed some nice bets including a win on Oxbow.

    Nice call

    Nice call I bet Oxbow to place so got a little refund.
    On a funny note I had the superfecta in exactly reverse or with Oxbow 4th.

    The Belmont should be quite an interesting betting race now.

    If you guys will look back to my ky derby wagers you will see oxbow was my long shot bet and Normandy invasion was who I had for the win.
    Normandy was out so I did take oxbow for the win. However, only played him for 100 bucks. Not a bad win at 1540. Didn't even see race till just now on YouTube.

    Yeah I should have boxed it but I like all the experts thought Orb was
    Going to win so keyed all my plays off that.
