I agree with this general thought above.To me it’s what comes next. For the first time in 145 runnings of the most popular race in the world, the winner was taken down in real time, the betting outcome literally turned upside down. If you don’t think this will drastically change things going forward you’re being naive.

Expect the number of objects/inquires to go through the roof, and like I said the other day, we’ll all have the privilege of playing the waiting game on the biggest days to see who gets taken down or not. And quite honestly I see it being a total disaster. The calls of corruption and “the fix is in” will grow incessantly louder. People will be turned off in droves.

Once the ginnie is out of the bottle they don’t go back in. The precedent was set and now we’ll have to deal with it. Some will say this opinion is much to do about nothing, making mountains out of mole hills. But just look at every other sport (or any facet of life really) where a precedent was set and how there was no looking back after. A brave new world for sure.

On another tip, if both MS and Country House run in MD the spectacle will be unlike anything I can remember. I think the patrons will be insanely pro Max Security, to a fever pitch. Conversely Mott likely gets jeered and treated like a heel. My guess is everyone involved suspects this, and I don’t think Country House will run one way or another. MS will get Hammered at the windows, which could lend itself to a decent betting race. I’m really interested in the crowd reaction in a 2019 world. I didn’t plan on going, just planned on NY this spring, but now I want to be there just to see the reactions. And hopefully recoup some money at the same time.

What do you guys think? It’s a forgone conclusion that MS gets bet to an obscene level right? Country House goes off at a better price than any derby winner in my lifetime? I think there’s real emotion at play and it will represent itself in dollars at the (insanely slow) Baltimore windows. Two full weeks for the anger to build.

Think about it, if you keyed the favorite (until the last tick) on top of a couple not impossible “longshots” in a minimal $10 Tri, that ruling cost you ~$36,000. And That’s a fairly common wager, most especially on derby day. The anger will be real and MS with his ever growing backstory will become the undisputed “champion” of the people...
