The Odds For The Races
Two wagers are up on sports betting websites for the Hambletonian & Oaks races. The first wager asks which horse will win the 2020 Hambletonian & Oaks.
Sorella comes in as the favorite but not by that much when compared to Hypnotic AM. Sorella was named after the wine and her owner Elmer Fannin believes she’s aging like a fine one, wanting his filly to beat out the others in Hambletonian & Oaks the odds indicate that it’s in her favor to do so.
