The news broke last night that Maximum Security is out of the Pennsylvania Derby due to a colon issue. Since this ruined the Conductor’s betting strategy in the big race on Saturday, he has to make a few adjustments to his original plans: The Conductor’s Pennsylvania Derby Preview
With now only a six horse field, the Conductor can’t use both Mr. Money and Improbable on top and get any value. After watching the tape a few more times, he’s going to single Improbable. It takes a very talented horse to exert that much wasted energy early in a race and still win easily like he did last time. This will be the race where Improbable shows what he’s capable of and Baffert will be laughing all the way to the bank.
