The turf WON'T be yielding, unless an unexpected rain comes to Gulfstream. It may, however be somewhat humid as it has been part of the week. Watch the Europeans in the Mile for a clue in terms of what to do later. Aside from that, ask yourself the following: If I wager $30 (on a 6 horse $1 box), and the exacta returns even $600 (which would be a nice hit), what odds am I getting to play this box. You're getting ONLY 9-1! You'll get half of $600 for the $1 play, and you wagered $30, so you're risking $30 to make $270. You can invest your $60 (two $30 bets) in any number of ways THAT YOU MENTIONED that are more likely to come in AND return better than 9-1. I'd take my $60 and throw it across the board on Ecton Park, if you really like him. If he wins, you'll get 9-1. And if he runs 2nd, you'll still do OK. If he runs 3rd, you'll at least get your money back! In either of your exacta boxes, you're hoping for a lot more than a 9-1 risk warrents! You also mentioned Darling My Darling over Scratch
Pad might be something you'd like. Find out what it's going to pay. I'll bet it's more than 9-1. There is sometimes safety in numbers, but not here.
