Maiden Claiming 100k, 6 furlongs, 2 yo’s
Possible overlays Morning line
#1 Undeniable Truth 6/1
#2 Crazy Wager 5/1
#3 Hasty Trend 8/1
#4 Dapper Gene 20/1
#7 Dubai Rainbow 4/1
#8 Too Much Heat 5/1
Although #9 Prince Andrew ran an 83 Beyer Speed Figure in his last race, which is good enough to win this, I will try to beat him because he’s 7/5 on the morning line and might go off at even money. In these high priced maiden claiming races, some trainers sneak in a horse with the talent to win a maiden special weight event, so I’m looking for a ringer.
Second-time starters #1 Undeniable Truth and #2 Crazy Wager may have what it takes, and a positive clue will be if they are bet below 10/1. Both #3 Hasty Trend and #8 Too Much Heat could be good enough, too. On his best day, #7 Dubai Rainbow could get the lead and not look back.
My main strategy is to wager against #9 Prince Andrew. I will bet $250 on #1 Undeniable Truth and $100 on #2 Crazy Wager if their odds are 3/1 to 9/1. Also, I’ll wager $200 on #3 Hasty Trend at greater than 7/2, $100 on #4 Dapper Gene at less than 20/1, $100 on Dubai Rainbow at 5/1 or better and $150 on #8 Too Much Heat, if he’s between 10/1 and 19/1.
