Fair Grounds: NO 'Cap odds


My Battle Plan odds forecast in the New Orleans Handicap was 7-5, but he's got a little ways to go to get there. Flashed down to 9-5 for a moment, but generally been sitting at 2-1, as he is right now with 6 MTP. General Quarters dead on the board at 7-1, though played more heavily in Pick 3s, while Giant Oak and Awesome Gem both flat in win betting. It's Star Guitar and Hold Me Back who've taken the win action I'd have expected on Oak and Gem.

Heavily favored Heavenville won the Crescent City Derby for Asmussen / Bridgmohan, with one and one-sixteenth miles in 1:44.42. The track is producing times right in an average range.
