Monmouth: early Haskell Betting


The early betting for the Haskell is all about Lookin at Lucky, who opened up as the 3/5 favorite. If you like Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver you may feel like you're getting value if he's 11-1 at post time, as he is now, with 25 minutes to post. The real value to me is Afleet Again at 17-1, as he figures to be around that price at post time, unlike the price currently offered on Super Saver. I like Lookin at Lucky but this is a silly price, as this is a decent field. I may take a bigger swing using Afleet Again than previously planned. Trappe Shot, at 7/2, is another horse who seems to be an underlay, which he figured to be anyway given his inexperience and the hype surrounding him,
