I happened to see First Samurai, Corinthian, and Flashy Bull run yesterday at the OTB when I was buying programs.  Corinthian won the race but pushed First Samurai and Flashy Bull all over the track in doing so.  In the stretch First Samurai tried the inside and got closed off by Corinthian, then went the outside and got pushed wide into Flashy Bull by Corinthian.  Eventually, First Samurai and Flashy Bull were placed 1st and 2nd while Corinthian was placed back.  If not for being run all over First Samurai would have pulled clear (i think).  Thats all I know.

Does anybody know if Vegas will have a continuing future pool.  Basically what im asking, is even though Churchills future pool ends today, will i be able to bet a future in Vegas on Thursday?

Thanks RDUKE for the info, unfortunately I did not get a future bet in. Wish I could help you w/ your question! I would call the MGM and ask to speak with someone in the sportsbook...even though you may get the runaround.

             They will have more future bet pools at the track . brother derek and sacred light . brother derek looks like the favorite but sacred light is improving . balance is a tough filly improving . normally future bets are'nt really a good bet unless you really have a good feeling about a bomber . last year my bomber got hurt and never made the race ! really a poor proposition . but sometimes it is a little bit of fun to pick one way ahead of time for a small wager like 50 .                         RTP

I personally think futures picks are awesome for the sport and I imagine one day soon harness will offer the wages also! Breeders, windy city, see the pools growing as we speak...
