The Woodward day at Saratoga was just full of tough decisions and make-able plays. For me, INDY HILL, my “V” horse and 2nd rated on the JJPP-PLUS went off at 32/1 and was an easy play to make, especially with $$$ showing up on the C. Clement first timer… Then later on, with a big price on Ekhlass – again the win/place strategy made all the difference. The structure that worked well was a simple win play with a reverse exacta wheel… I nearly cashed on Spieth — but didn’t. And made some hey with Mubtaahij, again taking advantage of overlay prices to build out a nice win/place structured wager… Four time I ran 2nd and three times I made some nice $$$ out of 5 plays ( my other play was my Race Day Play on Slim Shadey and I didn’t cash well while running 2nd).
Frosted simply ran an okay race. He most likely ran a little bit off his two best efforts, but I don’t think he ran way “off” those efforts. I will have those numbers midweek and let everyone know. Remember, this is not terrible that a big horse runs an Even or slightly backward race in August. This give them a real good chance to recover and go forward. Right now, I would project his at about 81.0 for the Breeders’ Cup. Which is a real nice level of ability, but it will not defeat California Chrome or Arrogate if they run to their proven capability. And for the record, I a totally convinced that the 80.0 he earned in the Met Mile on my speed figs is correct and that the people who “assigned” him bigger / human numbers because they were whowed by the visual… were as usual WRONG!
UPDATES for all categories will be done tomorrow and Monday… Bias Report is now ready for Saturday…
How am I doing with JJPP-PLUS at the Saratoga and Del Mar meets?
(Star horses have been a hallmark of my products since 1998 and appear on the JJPP-Classic and JJPP-Plus)
Total STAR horses = 182…. Total $$$ won (if you bet $2.00 on each one ) = $453.60… Cost is only $364.00… Profit of $89.60…
ROI is $1.25 per $1.00 played…
(Results are through the end of racing on Thursday at Saratoga & Del Mar )
For TOP-RATED horses on the JJPP-PLUS for both Del Mar and Saratoga — a $2.00 win bet on every TOP RATED horse since the beginning of both meets, BET THEM ALL, thru today — you would have won $1,217.70 at a cost of only $1,176.00.
The ROI is a positive $1.04 per $1.00 wagered!
That is exactly how good the JJPP-PLUS has been going Coast to Coast!
(updated results thru end of racing on Thursday 9-1-2016)
With the JJPPs, when it’s our turn to win,
we simply do not miss — no zig — no zag!
Saratoga on (9/3)… The rail seemed okay again, tracked played Honestly, …
Del Mar on (9/3)… Again a Dead Rail to me — note in the final race Bejarano from the 3 post finished out in the middle of the track, while the clueless Mario Gutierrez from the 7 post managed to find the “dead rail”!
Del Mar’s Turf —Again — a fair place to race — but favoring Closers, this seems to be the profile for the entire week… I am going to review and might make some changes to my opinion on the Grass for Wednesday through Today…
Race Day Section — Plays from Friday.
Saratoga Race #4 .. Belle Et Bete… Perfect trip and then NOTHING in the lane…
Del Mar… Race #7 Lily Podoff at 4/1… Boxed in and jammed up… lost all chance with tight trip.
Total Return $668.80
