Betting Strategy: I am making a big win bet on We the People as well as a boxed exacta of We the People, Creative Minister and Rich Strike.


  1. Yep, I was under the weather all week and pushed this out late. But feeling fine now. I was surprised at how well Mo Donegal ran. We the People was disappointing considering that he won the Peter Pan Stakes by 10+ lengths. Not sure why he faded like that.
