No such thing as a sure thing [Letter]

ust a reminder. There are no sure winners in racing, as Saturday's Preakness was proof of. A poll was taken and 65 percent of the race fans thought Orb was going to win. When Orb failed to go into "orbit," most people were shocked. But not the old-timers. They know "sure things" can be beat. Remember Man-o-War, Upset, Citation and Saggy?
