Woodward day at Saratoga with 12 “tough” races. The big hoss is Frosted, who I find interesting and a little troubling to play as a “Free bingo Square”. While I have no knocks on Frosted and his last two races are both excellent, without being so fast as to signal a ‘bounce”. I am still a little uncomfortable with him, noting that every effort has been followed by a “space”. So it’s hard to know if he’s coming into Saturday’s race in a the same form.
That being said, his last two races are both terrific. I had his Met Mile in an 80.0 and his “easy win in The Whitney” was a 79.0. And obviously, he could have run even faster in both… In both cases, Frosted took control and raced in the best part of the track – so I am not anxious to add much for ground loss. That’s the facts as I see them. I just can’t help but notice that in Dubai he was beaten by Hopportunity and others that can’t outrun a 79.0 figure yet.
I guess my point is – that everyone is talking this horse as “the best thing since sliced white-bread”, but my view is he’s a very good horse, with two excellent races, but he has lots of spaces as well. Meanwhile, not that long ago he was finishing behind good horses like Hopportunity and Mubtaahij – so he is not a “lock” to me. I suppose I will make some horizontal plays, and I will have a few small tickets to “protect” against a surprising misstep on Frosted’s part. But he should win!
How am I doing with JJPP-PLUS at the Saratoga and Del Mar meets?
(Star horses have been a hallmark of my products since 1998 and appear on the JJPP-Classic and JJPP-Plus)
Total STAR horses = 182…. Total $$$ won (if you bet $2.00 on each one ) = $453.60… Cost is only $364.00… Profit of $89.60…
ROI is $1.25 per $1.00 played…
(Results are through the end of racing on Thursday at Saratoga & Del Mar )
For TOP-RATED horses on the JJPP-PLUS for both Del Mar and Saratoga — a $2.00 win bet on every TOP RATED horse since the beginning of both meets, BET THEM ALL, thru today — you would have won $1,217.70 at a cost of only $1,176.00.
The ROI is a positive $1.04 per $1.00 wagered!
That is exactly how good the JJPP-PLUS has been going Coast to Coast!
