PP Horse Trainer Odds Wiz Capper Comments
1 True Timber McLaughlin 15-1 KEEP IN MIND: NO RACEDAY LASIX for any of the runners in the 2020 Pegasus World Cup. And with that, this guy was 7th in the ’19 running on a day when winner City of Light led all the way over a sloppy track. Consider that he’s style requires a pace pressing effort and that he’s 0 for 3 at this distance and give him an underneath shot on deep tickets.
2 Tax Gargan 8-1 Touted this guy in the G2 Jim Dandy in the summer at Saratoga. He’s still NW4 lifetime and his only effort vs. older in the Travers proved futile. This is his MAX distance and gets the other Ortiz and a shot at a board placing — but not the top spot.
3 Diamond Oops Biancone 15-1 Leparoux and Biancone together again with this five time winner at Gulfstream who specializes as an off-the-pace performer in sprint races. Never been beyond a mile. But the fact that he likes this track, this Lookin At Lucky offspring could stalk the pace and pounce at the right time.
4 Seeking the Soul Dallas Stewart 30-1 Draws the same post he had last year for this one. Oddsmaker has him opening at an eye-popping price in a field that is void of any outstanding runners, in the absence of Omaha Beach. Go back and watch the replay from last year and you’ll see why this old timer gives us the best shot at a BIG SCORE with the return of Johnny V. in the saddle. BIG SHOT
5 Omaha Beach (SCRATCHED) Mandella 1-1 report of career-ending leg injury.
6 Higher Power Sadler 6-1 Won the G1 Pacific Classic in wire-to-wire fashion as a 9-1 shocker. And if this was at the 1 1/4 mile distance, I’d say he has a chance at the top spot. But his only race at this distance was a disappointing 3rd place finish vs. virtually the same bunch he beat in the PC in his previous start. Definite board placing prospect but top spot unlikely.
7 War Story Dobles 30-1 The elder statesman in the field, at 8, he comes in fresh off a victory here in a G3 at 1 1/6 miles (was 0 for 3 in prior starts here).
8 Mr Freeze Romans 20-1
9 Spun to Run (SCRATCHED)
10 Mucho Gusto Baffert 9-2
11 Tenfold Asmussen 30-1 Interesting at a price
12 Bodexpress Delgado 30-1
