Probably sitting this one out but Iíll look at the prices.

With Big Lake being scratched out and the pool not started yet, how come they canít just add another horse? Iím sure the horse would have little chance but I bet horses like Known Agenda, Triple Tap, Soup and Sandwich, and others would garner some interest.

The flip side is why assume there are not any good bets in there? It's parimutual and the takeout is the same as any race at Churchill. Some entries will be overbet and some will be underbet. If they're underbet enough, they're good bets.

I donít see how betting a race that is 6 weeks away where there are so many variables could possibly be considered a good bet.

Iím sure all those people who bet Life Is Good thought they made a good bet.

So much can change in this game, with 3 year olds, daily. Why make it more difficult on yourself and your bankroll?

I just think itís very difficult if not impossible to determine value this far out. Too much can happen.

I donít plan on betting any of those horses. Just curious why they canít add another betting option when one is eliminated before the pool even opens.
