Opinion on a bad ride…
Dreydan Van Dyke was up on Der Lu in the 8th at Santa Anita. I would like to add, this was my Featured Play, with a value rated at 3/1 – with Spiced Perfection in the race. When Spiced Perfection scratched, this made 2/1 fair value. But we were looking at 7/2 in the actual price, so this was a clear overlay and a substantial one, especially when you consider this filly was prepared by Baffert for today’s race.
Unfortunately, DVD moved Der Lu away from the rail on the backstretch, allowing Queen Bee To You to find racing room on Der Lu’s inside and “STEAL” the ground saving trip. In the end, QBTY won by a long nose, with Der Lu showing gameness, but falling just short. Anyone watching would have to think that DVD simply lost his mind! At least that’s my take…(and I am pretty sure, that Ron Ellis concurred with me).
