    Yeah the 4 horse did a Dump....My 7 horse of course was gonna go wide with a wall of horses at that turn before the stretch
    He got bumped a bit not to bad in those close quarters. You can see then it was anybody's race.

    Very interesting!

    Campbell/Drexler factoids:

    In the past 2 years (before today)...
    8/33 wins (24%)
    16/33 ITM (48%)
    win ROI=$1.74 .... that is huge!


    Only 3 horses went off below 2-1 ..... all 3 lost, and today makes 4.

    33 mounts over 2 years isn't much considering Drexler has sent 221 out total.
    Apparently odds affect their intentions when they hook up. What I consider 'fiddling'.
    Their fiddling won't ever burn me again!!

    You're right. He originated and ran Illinios mainly but after '99 he also wintered in Louisiana, until moving to Woodbine in 2011.

    Crooks don't make a habit with setups.
    They have to fly under the radar. If they did it every week it would be too obvious.
    Some might not do again for a year or two. Depending on who and how much they scored.
    I saw one crook retire 6 months after a setup. Kinda figured he scored BIG.
