Race 8: 6 Furlongs. Clm 10000
Pony of the Day #9 Yakov (8/1) – This may be the Cornfather’s favorite pony of the day he’s shared thus far. He finished 3rd last race pressing a fast pace going a mile and is cutting back to a sprint today. On a fast track, Yakov has the best sprinting speed figures in this field. He has lost twice to the likely favorite #6 Price Escort, but both of those efforts were on a sloppy track. Yakov should get a perfect stalking trip from the outside post in this one and he looks like a stone old winner to the Cornfather. He won’t be bet down to favoritism like yesterday, but the Cornfather is expecting over 4/1. The Cornfather is shaking with excitement.
Win bet #8 Yakov over 4/1
