  • Selection Saturday: Bombs Away

    Once again, this is about longshots and value. I don’t have enough money to bet favorites and pick 6’s and superfectas, so I’ve got to take a few stabs.

  • An Unexpected Loaded Gun for the Classic?

    But let's start by being more logical. The Classic is simple: Arrogate or Gun Runner? That is where everyone will be focusing their attention. In the two previous showdowns between these two antagonists, Arrogate proved to be the fastest gun alive.

  • Why Gunnevera Should Run Well at Del Mar
