It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Horse Racing front and center… So let’s enjoy the great man’s day with a good thought and a good deed…for our fellow man.
“Race Day Las Vegas” Plays
Aqueduct’s play canceled, as did the whole card .
Race #7,,, Miss Bliss off at square odds followed along in mid-pack and tried to rally, but each time she couldn’t go on, then finished poorly, the class drop here was not the solution, and I bought the problem… but at square odds…
At Aqueduct, they cancelled again…
At Santa Anita… Wendy’s Back off at 7/2, broke a touch slow, and seemed a little “tentative” then settled and started to rally, but was a bit hard to handle, and wouldn’t move between horses, so the jock (CNak), had to wait for clearance and move her way outside, but then when asked hard, she lugged in,,, needing handling by the jock… it might have been the ground had a little too much give or that she is still very green… either way, this wasn’t the worst effort… so keep an eye on this one…
At Aqueduct, Barefoot Angel off at 6/5, was below my fair value and should not have been played in my opinion. Broke a touch slow and moved up to the outside line, sitting 3rd about 2.5 lengths behind the dueling leaders, moved up outside in tandem to take a slim lead, battled on without ever extending and eventually tired to finish 3rd . Might not have handled the surface… Priced saved our play!
At Santa Anita in the finale, Airlite off at 5/1 was tardy coming out of the gate, stayed near the back moved a little late in a lackluster performance, to finish about 5th… Not a very good effort in my opinion…
At Aqueduct… J J’s Dreaming off a little short, did some nice running early, wrested the lead turning for home, but flattened out to finish 3rd. Okay effort.
At Santa Anita… Carpathia was off at 30/1, was back in last early and then started to move along nicely, then started a meaningful rally, but the winner ran off and was in a photo for PLACE money, but only got the show… but at 30/1, we were betting the right horse.
