We hope you followed Paul Lo Duca’s in-depth coverage, which included his betting card for every race today and a pick on Friday’s ESPN+ episode of “I’ll Take That Bet.” Paulie hit a +635 Exacta in Race 2, was bullish on Still Having Fun in Race 7 (13-1 at race time), made his biggest bet of the day on Bee Jersey, who won Race 9 at around 3-1 odds, gave out a 100-1 Pick-5 winner for the late races, and for the main event, he said he liked Vino Rosso (-125) over Bravazo on the TV show. What a way to end the Triple Crown season!
