Race Day plays from Wednesday:
Race#3 at Aqueduct — Sweet Advance — off at odds of 10/1 ran to a Place finish paying $10.40 to place. To my eye, she would have won if allowed to run earlier, the jockey was a bit too cautious in my opinion…
Race #8 at Aqueduct — Smokey Brown got involved too late in off at very decent odds…finishing either 4th or 5th…
Race Day Plays from Thursday:
Race #7 at Aqueduct — Selenite — ran very flat through the lane after what appeared a very good trip at 5/1.
Race #2 at Del Mar — Twirling Tiger – ran a game Place to our next best rated horse, Sugar Buzz… reverse exacta at 15.50/1
Race Day Plays from Friday:
Race #9 at Aqueduct — Thirst For Glory ran evenly in a disappointing effort. Disappointing, because my “press” horse won paying 12/1. So I was naturally a bit “pissed” as I am sure everyone else was who played.
Race #3 at Del Mar — Secret Chords placed in a Speed and tiring effort. The price was a bit too low to play at EVEN money, the exacta with Flowinwiththewind was a decent one.
Race #4 at Del Mar — Holograeme finished about 6th in a dull efforts..the exotic turns Tiz A Kiss and Evo Campo ran 1st and 2nd…
Great Races at Aqueduct and Del Mar:
With the Remsen, The Damesoiselle, The Comely and the Cigar Mile we are looking a great handicapping races. Who knows, maybe we will see a Kentucky Derby contender step to the front of the class. Nowaday’s, smart trainers who have a Derby colt are not necessarily getting them wound up for the BC Juvy – but rather considering a more conservative journey through the Remesn, These are terrific puzzles to solve and hopefully some terrific payoffs. This is the kind of card, that can produce great winnings. And guess what, when we turn our attention to Del Mar, with the Jimmy Durante, The Native Diver and The Hollywood Derby that will feature Dortmund, fresh from his effortless Tour De Force, we should expect a fabulous effort (un fortunately at short odds) — but once again there are many competitive contests with hard to predict outcomes that should yield some nice payoffs… So get your Power Pages, your past performance material and give it a great whirl on Saturday
