Big Cap Day
#5 Excessive Kid 3-1
This Carla Gaines trainee has the most upside in my opinion. This may be his first try on the grass but if you know his trainer’s record with these type of runners there is no concern. In fact, he was entered in a grass race that was run on the
dirt mud because of rain. This race has a few wagering contenders so I expect at least 3-1 here or better.
One random but kind of funny note about this race has to do with the morning line favorite, #1 Snuggley Bear. Snuggley Bear has ran good in his last 5 races, only to lose to a different Bob Baffert trained horse in all five.
Obviously, Snuggley’ and his connections are happy to see there is no Baffert trained horse in here today.
