The morning line is out for Sunday’s $50,000 Boeing Stakes and McDove is listed at 8-1. There are four horses with lower morning line odds, including 5-2 favorite Profound Moment, and there are four horses with higher morning lines.
So McDove is right in he middle, which sounds about right to me.
The Boeing Stakes is Race 7 but note post time is now 4:41 p.m., 30 minutes earlier than was listed yesterday.
Here is the field for the Boeing Stakes: 1-Princess Katie, Amadeo Perez, 119 lbs, 6-1; 2-Citizen Kitty, Julien Couton, 123, 3-1; 3-My Heart Goes On, Eswan Flores, 119; 15-1; 4-Profound Moment, Javier Matias, 123, 5-2; 5-Pyscho Sister, Kevin Krigger, 117, 7-2; 6-Princess Kennedy, Rocco Bowen, 119, 10-1; 7-B C Z Middleton, Jose Zunino, 119, 15-1; 8-Protective Shield, Juan Gutierrez, 119, 12-1; 9-McDove, Kevin Orozco, 117, 8-1.
