Monmouth: Cornerstone a Cinch?


Lots of people figured to like Cornerstone (#4) in the first race today. After all, he's 3/2 in the program. But somebody REALLY likes him. With about 30 minutes to post, with $14,721 in the win pool, $14,059 was bet on the grey colt, making him a prohibitive favorite of 1/9. That figures to change as we get closer to post, of course, but I do hope that Slevin stays somewhere near his current price of 99-1....
