McCarthy's colt BomBauer was sitting on a forward move. He ran 3rd behind the top two in the Bluegrass. Trainer ships from GG & Artificial back to KEE where he ran well in the BC Juvey. Was a confident move rather than an Easter Visit.
Essential Quality and the place horse, Highly Motivated, ran true to form. The stretched-out field suggests it was a fast race. I didn't look to see the clock which can mislead anyway.
So not so confused today. The KD contenders; LaD Winner, BG 1-2, SA Derby winner, ARK Derby winner, FL winner and a surprise or two on race day.
Yes, the Wood exacta seemed light to me. The pool had $812K. My math is not good enough to estimate the impact of a random $20 ticket. $450 with a 15/1 in 2nd suggests to a simple mind the payoff should have been double what it was. ie. 72# 6.5 = 450 + or -. 72 * 15 = $1,000 plus.
