20 May

Tomorrow is the Preakness which is the second leg of the Triple Crown.  I have done my homework and loaded the stats into the EOTH (Eye of the Horse).  Here are the results:

Value pick

 I like King Congie as my value pick providing that he stays above 10-1 odds.  I think I will ladder a W/P/S bet favoring a Show.  My fear with him though is that a new jockey who never rode him before is holding the reigns.  I also like Mucho Macho Man but feel he may get extra bets based on the unfortunate death of Macho Man Randy Savage.  Also, Animal Kingdom is great, however, the odds aren’t there to make a sole bet on him.

 I am also going to box a .10 Super with the top four horses just for the heck of it, hey why not.  You’re getting the top four horses in a 2.40 bet!

 Keep an eye out for Sway Away and Astrology.  They might be a great play also.  Have fun and good luck!
