Emerald Racing Club’s Distinguishable is the 5-to-2 morning line favorite in Sunday’s 5th race at Emerald Downs. The race appears to be evenly matched as Our Silver Lining at 6-to-1 is the longest shot on the morning line.
For those unfamiliar with what that means, the track’s morning line maker predicts the final odds for each horse in every race. The actual odds, of course, are determined by how much money is wagered on each horse. John Lindley and Gary Dougherty, our guest handicappers at Orientation, will handicap the race in detail and explain the various symbols and numbers in the Daily Racing Form.
As I mentioned yesterday, we will have a special drawing Sunday to determine the paddock winners for Distinguishable’s race. The goal is to let everybody have at least one chance to be in the paddock this season.
Sunday’s weather forecast is sunny and 60 degrees with zero (!) chance of rain.
Here is the field for Sunday’s 5th race: 1-Pebble Beach, Kevin Orozco riding, 3-1; 2-Knife River, Rocco Bowen, 5-1; 3-Web of Demons, Eswan Flores, 4-1; 4-Elusive Riches, Jose Zunino, 7-2; 5-Our Silver Lining, Eliska Kubinova, 6-1; 6-Distinguishable, Javier Matias, 5-2.
