Don't Bet

(SAT) March 6th, 2021

4:13 p.m. Have racked my brains but the more I think, the more it feels like Yayoi-sho would end up on the favored side. It could even finish with the top 3 favored horses... I mean, who could deny Danon the Kid? And thanks to the information revolution these days, all the horses that seemed potential to my eyes are already being favored.

Let me tell you first that if you don't want to lose money, don't bet on this race. I won't. I'm just caaling the race, that's all. That said, I'd key Danon the Kid on a wheel of One Day More, So Valiant, and Schnell Meister. Don't blame me if Titleholder comes in 2nd or 3rd.
