I am happy and also a bit surprised to see War of Will move up to  #4 on Mr Whites chart. 
Interesting read.

I would be remiss if I didnt add something on a horse which may finish in the money. War of Will.
This son of War front was supposed to have a racing career on grass based on his pedigree.He showed flashes, but a switch to the main track turned out to be what he needed. Big on class and maybe a tad less on stamina,  he had never lost a race on dirt until his 9th place finish as the 4-5 favorite in the Louisiana Derby.
That though can be attributed to the horse having lost his footing in the race and injuring the Patellar ligament.
If that had not happened and he won the race, remaining undefeated on dirt this horse would surely be a top selection.
Since then he ran a bullet at Keenland 1st out of 44 at 5 furlongs, 59 flat,one of two great works at Keenland.

His connections are top notch and owned by Metro Golden CEO Gary Barber.Not so important but found it interesting none the less. My guy Tyler Gaffalione is riding so thats a plus for me.

I think hes got a better then average chance and will have a rather large show bet riding on him depending on how much liquor is consumed by oh say ... 3 o'clock

It was interesting to see Vekoma win the Blue grass while not focusing on the race but instead staring up in the stands.
I think hes  a  good horse and will be interesting to see if his handlers get him mentally ready in two weeks.

Which brings me to the prep race  I think had the best field .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELHjA-LutDM

Its to bad two of the top four finishers will likely be left out.
That being Hidden Scroll and Bourbon War.The former who really was asked a lot early in that race,which is not his game,came up short as the fav and finished 4th.
I think if your taking a stand against the top Omaha Beach who I scored nicely with last out ,Game Winner Tacitus or Roadster, or just looking for a few others who may fit the bill, one could be Code of Honor who  impressed me so much against a real nice field.
He finally got a chance ot run a trouble free race after getting bumped hard in the $100000 Mucho and stumbling bad but still coming in second in the Gr 1 Champgn.
Drawing a line threw the Florida Derby finishing a well beaten third while  losing to Max Security, another fine horse.
Not saying he wins but just looking for a few to fill out the superfecta.  War of Will, and Vekoma can also fit the bill.
Tax is another whos odds will be huge. Remember he only lost to Tacitus by a half length and personally think he will improve yet again, this time around.

Johnny Vs decision  to ride Code of Honor or stick with Baffert will help make my mind  up.

Sorry Im all over the board here. But the ones who know me I guess are use to it.
Keep up the discussion guys. Its Derby time

Sounds like you have a pretty good idea as far as when  to play it and when not to.
I dont make a habit because it gets  a little pricey,but  I do look for it when playing 10 cent supers.
If its a wide open race and I believe the fav is vulnerable Ill play all on top. but theres no real formula in my opinion.
To be  honest when I really like a longshot I may hit the all button with him in Exactas. Pays good unless the favorite comes in with him.

Good race at second glance.
Omaha keeps improving and think he runs another good race.

If the pace heats up like I think it will, why not a closer like Laughing Fox getting up for third. 3 w/11,5 for me . Gl  Mike

Bitter sweet for me as I was down to taking Florida St or Texas Tech to the Championship.I felt F.S. had the easier road to get there.
As far as tonight goes Texas Tech will be running on all cylinders. Owens and Odiase will prove to be just to athletic and will interrupt Virginia's game flow.
Would not be surprised to see a few Cavs in foul trouble early.

Corbin Burnes has four, maybe five pitches that he can use effectively,kind of a abnormality. I think he is the Brewers best pitcher by midseason.

Wasn't going to mention that to you about your cubs Mike. But damn the Brewers look good. Had to laugh about the cover charge at Joe's.
I can afford 2 bucks.
Lincoln Park was very nice. Thanks again Mike
