One Liner certainly doesn't have a pedigree that screams 10 furlongs.

1) One Liner
2) Tapwrit
3) Battalion Runner
4) Always Dreaming

Others who might get there

5) Made You Look
6) Sonic Mule
7) Malagacy
8) Third Day
9) Monaco


You don't think One Liner is a Pletcher fraud who skipped town for easier pickings in Arkansas? I'm asking legitimately, because he fits the profile (Always Dreaming and Monaco do, too)


Nope. He ran a big number and looked strong coming home. He is the real deal. The only one more prep thing is not great though. He probably wins Arkansas Derby and turns into another Danza. Probably just want to get China Horse Club into Derby.

So the Todd Squad has come alive. Is there a Super Saver in there anywhere or are these just more of the same sorts like Carpe Diem, Gemologist, Destin, et al?

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

These horses don't even seem that good, but the rest of the crop is ho-hum.
