Here are a few topics that I will be Blur”p”ing on over the next two-three weeks…
Bad Trips or Bad Jockey ? There were several terrible judgment calls and placement that were totally the fault of “great jockey’s doing stupid stuff”!
Terrible Training Jobs! I am totally surprised by some of the poor races run, from some of our best and most heralded trainers, obviously I will be discussing Bob Bafferts horses performance and as noted below, Richard Mandella will make this list, and there are others… The important thing here, is to be aware, as the tides might be changing some… they always seem to.
Sensational performances, by horse, jockey and trainer! This is one I will be enjoying and look forward to discussing…
I will be Blur”p”ing a Post BC Review… If you want to receive these, just send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will be happy to add your name to the list and send you the BC Blurps… this is a totally FREE service… but only for our friends.
“Race Day Las Vegas” Plays
Aqueduct… Race #4 featured my play Kressie, who ran very well at 2/1, to be beaten on the wire by the 88/1 Birthday Gift – who was part of our play on both the radio and on the JJPP-PLUS. The reverse exacta paid $466/1… and “that price is OKAY!”
Del Mar we had 2 plays on the Race Day because other handicapper’s had landed on my initial play Moonless Sky who won in classy style paying only $5.40. So my next play was TopGallant in the 9th, who also won paying $8.60.
Aqueduct was listed as MUDDY , my first play was Palladian Bridge in the 2nd , off as the chalk – loomed large but didn’t have the strong kick today, finishing 3rd.
My follow-up play was Speighgal in the 8th…Scratched.
