Other horses that attracted strong support on the opening day of KDFW Pool 2 included Sham Stakes (gr. III) winner Ravel and Sam F. Davis winner and Kentucky Jockey Club (gr. II) runner-up Any Given Saturday, a pair of Todd Pletcher-trained horses who were 12-1 risks at the end of the betting March 8.  Other horses that received solid backing included Robert B. Lewis (gr.
