We had the 2nd race exacta 3-1 exacta $18.20
Race 4 8-1-3 box came in 3-8-1 Exacta paid 43.20. I did say you could try 8 over ALL so you could have lost. Here is the funny thing, In one right up I said 8-1-3 and add the 6 if you want as a long shot. SUPER CAME IN 3-8-1-6 for $1355.00 Go figure.
Race 5. I knew the 2 horse could run...box the 3-2-8 came in 2-3-1 Exacta paid $28.20 with the $12.80 win
Race 7 NOTHING. Had the 4 in our box, came in 2nd. Nothing else.
I mentioned race 9 and 10 as passes and gave some advice....... Race 9 had a scratch but we had the winner.....Race 10 we 2nd and 3rd.
Over all not a bad day for once....
Now to Thursday............Pay attention to the weather......I like turf races and some later races may be off the turf with thunderstorms in the forecast.
Race 1 (actual) first race of the day.......steeplechase......stay away, but if you choose look for Jockeys in Hodson and Dowling and trainer in Kingsley and Sheppard.
Race 5 We have Johnny V on a maiden horse. He will be heavily bet favorite. Box 7-5-3
Race 6 Interesting scenario as Ramon Dominquez is on a Chad Brown horse, this is usually Costellano's mount. LaParoux is on Dutrow horse which is usually a Dominquez mount. Lots of moving around with Johnny V being hurt to start the season. Box the BOX 9-7-3 if one of these is out use the 2.
Race 7 Box 9-6-2 I do like the 6 to win.
Race 9 Something that stands out for me here is that Kent Desormeaux is on the 7 horse. Desormeaux lost his mounts yesterday and Joel Rosario picked them up. He actually rode the 3 horse that won race 4 yesteday. Does he lose the mount again or stay aboard? I do not like the morning line favorite.....
Box the 7-1-6. 1 horse has good chance to win it all.
Race 10 I have seen the 1 horse run before, it was strong and ready to go. I have also seen the 5 horse go. I think that time it needed to excercise. He could run for real this time. Box the 9-1-5, but if you want, don't be afraid of the 6. I left the 6 out to add value and odds with the 5.
Asked to work the bar tonight and saturday. Maybe I will get some tips for the weekend or future rides.
Good luck if you choose to follow.
