The 9-2 morning line favorite #16 Game Winner has been a bit cold in the win pool at 6-1 and is likewise only the fourth choice in the Oaks/Derby double, suggesting that bettors are hesitant to embrace the 2-year-old champion after his two defeats this season. #17 Roadster, the co-second choice on the morning line at 5-1, figures to be no better than the fifth choice in the win wagering, with #13 Code of Honor rounding out the top six.
