Best of luck to you, Meat. Mattress Mack is the guy the guy who's throwing all that money on Essential Quality. Part of a promotion he's come up with. He's planning to bet at least $2 million, but may go as high as $4 million. It'll basically make his odds unplayable for the win spot, but if you do like him the exotics (ex, tri, super) won't be affected by that money. Just the win pool. I just finished up my Derby work this morning and I think I'm going like this; 15 / 9, 14 / 1, 8, 9, 10, 14, 17 in trifectas 15 / 1, 8, 9, 10, 17 in exactas (trying to beat EQ out here) I really wanted to play the super, but none of the bigger longshots look all that appealing when I did the numbers. I was hoping Super Stock would look okay. He ended up just average, though (ranked 9th & 10th), even with his patterns. Best of luck today whichever way you lean. Best of luck to everyone. Hoping for a good race regardless.
