- I imagine I haven’t made many friends in the UK with my selections for today. The only European horse I picked is Karen's Caper, and I don't know if that even counts since she ran at Keeneland in her last. Good results for the invaders are widely expected over there, and Ladbrokes offer just 6-1 against three winners for the visitors, though four or more is 25-1. That’s a pretty big difference of opinion; I think most of us here would be quite surprised if the Europeans win three of these.
They’ll be a lot of differences of opinion on the races today; even a favorite like Lost in the Fog will have plenty of opponents amongst the bettors. I can handicap these over and over and come up with different winners each time. The bottom line is that there are a lot of really good horses that are all capable of winning, and racing luck is going to play a large role in determining the outcome. So my advice is to find some live horses at nice prices, don’t go crazy, have fun, pool some money with friends for some multi-race bets, hope for a little luck, and just experience and enjoy the day. (A triple or two would be nice though.)

Penn National.- Have a great day and good luck!
I'm looking for a cheap claiming horse over from Philadelphia Park that got obliterated and is running for the same tag, suggesting a big win here.
Talk about a full day.
