I see where Omaha Beach is entered for the dirt mile tomorrow. I’m a little surprised that Mandella didn’t enter him in the Classic. $6 Million purse vs $1 million. I guess, after the long layoff before last month’s race, he didn’t feel he was quite ready to go 1 1/4 mile against older horses. I would have loved to see and bet him in the Classic.
The Mile goes off around 3:00 CT tomorrow. You’ll have to bet him early tomorrow if you’re of a mind. Morning line is at 8-5 and Improbable, the 2nd favorite, is 3-1. I don’t like the odds, but he’s earned it. It wouldn’t surprised me if he goes off around even money at race time.
