Exacta Box bet on Lawton (3) and Oil Money (6):
These two horses are clearly the cream of the crop in this race. We tried to break it down to decide which one to pick, then thought it made much more sense to play an exacta box. For those who don’t know. That means these two horses need to come in 1st and 2nd, but In no specific order. The jockey and trainer numbers are impossible to ignore on both these horses. When Ty Kennedy and Robertino Diodoro pair up, they mean business. In their 81 races together, they have won 1st 26 times (32%), and hit the board 63% of the time. This is the connection for the 6 horse Oil Money, who should have a great chance to get the lead and win this race. If she is to be beaten, we see it being done by the 3 horse Lawton. The connection of David Cabrera and Broberg is impossible to ignore. These two have paired up a whopping 630 times, and have resulted in 159 first place finishes (25%), and they have hit the board 63% of the time. This is another horse that is in awesome form coming into this race, and likes to sit just off the pace. With these percentages, we see there being a great chance of these two finishing 1 and 2, but quite frankly we can’t decide which way it will go. Let’s try for a little bigger payday here and do an exacta box on these two horses.
