NO. 5 POPOVER: Was in the same race as Longstocking and just missed by a nostril. This filly was also working lights out for Baffert and will be a solid single next time out in the picks. We will keep an eye out for this race. It could turn out to be a key race. $$$$$
NO. 5 CAUTIOUS GIANT: Just could not understand the betting in this 7 furlong maiden race. Giant was let go at almost 7/1 and the one he lost to by a nose last time out was 7/5. He beat the 7/5 shot who finished second and paid $15.40 with the second choice of the race coming in third. The $1 tri paid $112.30, just another example of horses exiting the same race.
