The two pools, which featured 23 individual betting interests and a 24th “All Others” wagering selection, ended Sunday. Accelerate topped the Classic pool at 3-1, with Travers Stakes (G1) victor Catholic Boy (#5) the second favorite and only other interest to close at single-digit odds when bet down to 7-1.
Abel Tasman (#1) and Elate (#7) were also bet down to single-digit odds after running 1-2 in Saturday’s Personal Ensign Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. The former closed as the 3-1 second choice while Elate attracted odds of 5-1.
