Monday (10-8-2018) Power Page and PLUS for Belmont and Santa Anita are ready for download…

ALERTS continue to perform…

Through the last several days, my ALERTS, Star Horse, “V” horses, “1 & 2” and PKs have really done well over the past several days and they continued on Saturday.  At Belmont there were 4 STAR horses producing 2 winners and 1 place horse.  The Place horse was Brucia La Terra at 13/1 who finished second to surprise winner Jaywalk, but paid a whopping $13.10 for the Place money… while the 2 STAR horses were Uncle Benny at 9/2 and A Thread of Blue at 2/1… the one total loser was Neverland Rock, who went of short enough to “look past”…

While at Santa Anita, after yesterday’s excellent day, has only had 2-STAR horses through the first 7 races with 1 place from the 2-star horses, with 2-STAR horses to come in the 9th and 10th races… But clearly we are having another decent day with our Pop OUt Key, Todo Santos winning the 6th and Top Rated PPN horses doing solid work throughout the entire card…

My Sunday has been spent handicapping Columbus Day Racing, which is my great passion… so I am fortunate.  I hope you will take at look at the JJPPs for tomorrow’s racing – because we have two very nice cards…

225/1, going home a winner…

In the finale at Santa Anita, after scratches we were left with 1 STAR horse, Encanta and 1 “V” horse, Courteous.  Encanta was also the Top Rated on my Contenders List on the PLUS… these two ran win & place making a marvelous exacta that paid $225/$1.00…  And this exacta should have sent all the JJPP player’s home a winner…

I say this, noting we did have a long tough day at Belmont, for those that were playing both tracks.  Belmont presented some difficult challenges yesterday, which are discussed in the article that follows.  But as our customer’s know, our handicapping ideas are sound and they work. That means they earn in the long run. But instead of having a nice win here and loser there, on Saturday, we got off to a tough start, at Belmont and through the opening 4 races at Santa Anita.  Then from the 5th through the 11th, we literally cleaned up winning the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th in succession and then taking down the 11th with gusto!

Keep the faith and stay with the Power Page…

Turf course at Belmont has strong Bias!

Going against a Strong bias can make you look as “dumb as a box of rocks”, unless you luck into favorable trips.  For those of you who are new to the game and not entirely sure of what I am talking about, we had such a bias today at Belmont – ON THE TURF. This is pretty unusual when the turf courses are drying out, but not that unusual in the summer when a Turf course can get burned out.

But we had one today, if you were not on the rail for at least the first 4 furlongs of each race, you were not getting your picture taken.  Closers who were snug to the rail did fine, but if you were two paths or more off the rail, fo-get-about-it!  And it was like that somewhat on Friday.  This is good and bad… if you make a sheet as I do, it is bad when it rears it’s ugly head, especially if all our interesting handicapping does not find it’s way to the rail…  but we see this as an opportunity in the future because horses that didn’t get to the rail, will look worse than they are and then pay better than they should when we catch them later on…

The we went to Santa Anita which played honestly on both Turf and Dirt and have had a fab day… with our Top Rated Contenders winning the 5th (EVEN),6th (9/2 odds), 7th (3/1 odds)  and 8th (5/1 odds)  and then losing the 9th with a 35/a long.

This was a nice run and it’s typical of the Karma of the Game, but if you use solid principles it all works out in the end… by the way, in this 4 race streak, 3 of the winners were STAR horses and the only STAR horses in the race…  It’s now time for the 10th and I will sign off for tonight….  I would love it if Aquila could get the job done!
