Friday’s (2-16-2018) Power Page and PLUS for Aqueduct and Santa Anita are ready for download…


The best horse doesn’t always win and neither does the best Skier, as our fav – Mikaela Shiffrin wasn’t quite up to her best today, coming in 4th, in her favorite event.  Maybe she “bounced” after her big win last night in the Super G ( I think that was yesterday’s event)…

Now for yesterday’s Power Page… we had 5 STAR horses (at Aqueduct and Santa Anita), producing 3 winners and 2 place results… at Santa Anita we had 1 V horse, and he won paying $28.00.  The Pick 6 at Santa Anita, was very possible, with my Top Rated horse winning the 3rd, my top rated and STAR horse winning the 4th, my 2nd rated and STAR horse winning the 5th, my 3rd rated horse winning the 6th, my top rated (and Race Day Play) winning the 7th and then the “V” horse winning the 8th – the final leg…

“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…
