Calder: Overbet favorites

Email

   A couple of overbet horses went down to defeat in races two and three. In the second, Illicit Lover was pounded from a 5-1 morning line to 8-5, sat a perfect trip stalking the leaders and had nothing for the drive finishing several lengths behind wire to wire winner Rare Red Birds. 

   Barry K. was similarly bet down from a 5-1 morning line all the way to 4-5 for his second career start, got into a pace duel with Barry K and was done at the top of the stretch, fading to fourth behind rail running winner Wicklow Royale.

    Note to Harry, off a nice work from the gate, has opened at 6-5 in the fourth race.
