SURELOCK’s problem is simple: Most of the horses it bets suffer from equine agoraphobia, the fear of an empty expanse of turf surface between a horse and the wire. Saturday’s case was Greensmith, who was second in the stretch, apparently became frightened, and finished seventh.
The computer’s bet for today is $100 to win on Itsallgreektome in the eighth race.
SURELOCK’s Sat. Bankroll: $1,499
Saturday’s Loss: $100
Current Bankroll: $1,399
