“Race Day Las Vegas” Plays
At Aqueduct, Angry Moon off at 10/1, broke alertly to raced toward the front, then took command before the initial quarter was complete, maintained his lead into the stretch, then lifted lively when asked, the favorite challenged at the 3/16th, but Angry Moon continued on gamely, but tired 50 yards out to be nailed as they came to the wire. Well clear back to 3rd money… Very solid Place Effort. Took home the exacta.
AT Los Alamitos, Scathing off at 4/1, rated along behind the early speed, started to take up the chase mid-turn and then still had 4 lengths at the 3/16th pole to makeup, continued the rally – impressively to win going away by open lengths. Yes we made the Exacta and more… Winning and paying $10.60 …
Aqueduct saw our pick go off at 9/2 and he ran very “mediocre” at all points in the race to finish a well beaten 5th, not what we were looking for…
Los Alamitos – our play was scratched!
At New York, my play was Power Nap off at 9/2 and well placed while alert in the early going, taken back slightly 200 out, then taken off the rail while still on the backstretch, then traveled in the 2 path, started to commence a rally with the jock looking for a lane, chose to move outside of horses which was a BAD MISTAKE, as the inside opened up and he missed his advantage… finished in full stride but only 3rd…
At Los Alamitos, my play Bow and Arrow off at 6/1 broke alertly but near the back and moved up wide throughout the initial 3 furlongs, stayed wide will still 5 lengths back at the 3/16ths pole and then finished fastest to get up in the final 50 yards… Winning paying $15.00… we did not hit the exacta… but as we said… this play was a focus on the straight play.
Inalienable Rights off at generous odds – was taken back, commenced a rally late in the far turn, got into position, but evened out… finishing a few lengths back.
American League off at “fair value” – produced a solid run was clearly 2nd best when out-gamed by the eventual winner, who was surprisingly good…A solid Place effort.
