Saturday’s cards are once again, very interesting to me. While on Friday I was seeing great single plays, including the two winners I gave out on Race Day Las Vegas. But Saturday, might be a day to hunt a few horizontal plays, with some very solid looking doulbe-tons and triple-tons…
But keep in mind, that in these scenarios, often lend themselves to suddenly a Pop Out Key opportunity. Keep your eye on the odds board and you will find the price.
“Race Day Las Vegas” Plays
IN race #5, we backed No Hiding Place, off at odds of 26/1, NHP took the lead early and held on for a little more than half the race, then fading fast… We got a little run for our money.
Then in Race #7 Flash Drive was our play, off at 5/2, was beaten to the lead by the eventual winner, pressed the leader with vigor, but succumbed late in the stretch, fading to 4th, as much the 2nd best. I loved this play, and while it did not work out, I was satisfied with the effort the horse made… for what it’s worth…
Race #3 at Aqueduct, my Pop Out Key, was She’s Delightful, who was just that, after falling in behind the leaders while out off the rail, rallied strongly in the stretch to win well while totally clear. Off at odds of 7/1, this delightful play paid handsomely at $16.00 for the win.
Race #3 at Santa Anita, was my Featured Play, Ms Bad Behavior who went off at a generous 5/2 (as I explained on the JJPP-PLUS – her fair value was 6/5), she simply was much the best, when challenged by the chalk, she seemed to fend off that challenge with little difficulty. This winning play turned the trick at a $7.20 win price…
Also, for those interested in my Fabulous Figs, this play on Ms Bad Behavior was sent out on Thursday night with a nice little explanation – along with a copy of my new Fabulous Figs – for handicapper’s that really want to deeply understand the form of each for horse themselves… Interested, then let me know…
