Saturday’s (2-17-2018) Power Page and PLUS for Aqueduct and Santa Anita are ready for download…

Aqueduct should be drying out some for Saturday, but will still play to horses with the “m” designation.  And I would still consider the “p” horse to be worth playing whenever the price seems right.  They can jump up big time, first time over a WET Surface.  I had an eye for a Drying strip.

Another fab card at Santa Anita for Saturday…

“Race Day Las Vegas” Plays


At Aqueduct, Proletariat in the 2nd , off at 3/1, (note in the gate at 2/1 out of the gate at 3/1), broke smartly to track the early pace setter in 3rd position, giving about 2 lengths to the leaders, moved up late in the turn to draw alongside as they “spun” into the stretch, then race well through the lane to win a hard fought decision, but nearly a full length. Winning and paying $8.00.

At Santa Anita, Colonist in the 7th off at 2/1, still represented value according to the value line, I suggested.  Ridden confidently and moved off the rail early into very, very slow fractions, this tactic proved to be instrumental to giving  the horse an early enough split to lay down his powerful late run… and that’s exactly what happened, getting up in the shadow of the wire, to win well and paying $6.00…No exacta today…


At Aqueduct, Zealous Scholoar in the 7th, off at 9/1, made the early running, while other were in hot pursuit. Held an advantage through the first 3 furlongs, then hit a wall and slowed down, finishing out of the money…

At Santa Anita Moneigh Morproblems, off at 7/1, broke sharply and secured position down at the rail just behind the leaders, while momentarily getting slightly steadied, this would have to be called a “dream trip”.  After crossing the dirt section, had plenty of room for a split and just went down the stretch evenly, never moving up on the early pacesetter or keep stride with Impression.  Fair to poor effort in my book…
