Vegas Baby...Wait I'm Not Going??

The Space Gal is abandoning me for Sin City, this time I won't be in tow at the Mirage like last year. She'll be there for a Toy Fair (not the kind some of my readers may be thinking of...that show is next week) and her timing couldn't be worse. Our two beloved football teams square off in Happy Valley (or State Penn depending on what side you fall on) on Saturday, Pitt invades UB Stadium tomorrow, the NFL season revs up in full gear this weekend and the Bills take on the Pats on Monday night. And I was going to make a special trip to paint the Nittany Lion orange too. Ugh.

However, maybe her timing isn't all that bad after all, with the Breeders Cup (self proclaimed) World Championships coming up in two months and the Wynn has put out its future odds on eight of the races. I think I'll be slipping her a few dollars to wager on a few horses here and there. Take a look and let me know what looks like a good future (sucker) bet right now?

Some interesting current odds noted in my initial review were as follows.

Sea of Stars 2-1
Zenyatta 12-1
Einstein 10-1
Macho Again 15-1
Colonel John 15-1
Mine That Bird 15-1

Ladies Classic (Distaff):
Zenyatta 2-3
Milwaukee Appeal 40-1 (hmm...Woodbine poly, may be worth some coin)
Gozzip Girl 25-1
Life is Sweet 3-1
Seventh Street 14-1
Stardom Bound 11-1

Dirt Mile:
No horse is less than Pyro & Capt Candyman Can at 10-1 - Wow!
Kodiak Kowboy 14-1
Cowboy Cal 15-1

Zensational 8-5
Fabulous Strike 5-1
Benny the Bull 18-1
Fatal Bullet 12-1

Filly & Mare Turf:
Forever Together 7-2
Magical Fantasy 8-1
Backseat Rhythm 100-1

Mile (Turf):
Rip Van Winkle 5-1
Justenuffhumor 6-1
Gio Ponti 8-1
Delegator 9-1
Cowboy Cal 15-1
Colonel John 20-1
Affirmatif 75-1 (oh how he's fallen)

Conduit 4-1 (last year's winner)
Gio Ponti 5-1 (probably will run here?)
Spring House 8-1 (dropping from opening odds of 18-1)
Better Talk Now 30-1

Sidney's Candy 3-1
Lookin at Lucky 4-1
Dublin 8-1
Bulldogger 12-1

Anyways, I'm sure you can get better value on BC day, but to throw a few bucks out there....let me know what you think?? Have a great weekend!

With Sea The Stars still not committing to the BCC (as far as i've read) the odds on MTB and CJ in the Classic are enticing.

Kodiak Kowboy would have got the better of Pyro last weekend with a better trip. (I haven't got the form in front of me to see which prefers the near-dirt more.)

Vegas baby!
