17-1 ? really ?
there are some real dumb clucks in this world
17-1 on a horse who is ofer this yr and has an outside post on a 1/2 mile track
I figured one of his one line backers dropped 50 or 100 to win on him just so he wouldn't be 228-1.
I thought the same thing though low odds on a hopeless case horse.
As far as Rabers horsemanship I have been told by people whos opinions I value that he is a legit decent horseman.
I really have no idea why this debacle continues to unravel.
Wish he would retire the horse lots of people now would love to give him a nice forever home.
