You know, sometimes there's a wee bit of saving grace in this game. Although we were blanked again on the day, our unders saved the day for our backers with a $310 Triple Box, $108 Triple Box, $30 Exacta Box, and $142 Exacta Box ( All in different races. )…
Some rapid fire thoughts : -Shared Belief was aided by the rapid early splits, but he would've won regardless. -Remember, when you see a steeplechase horse fall, and sometimes die, many were given a 2nd chance at life well beforehand. -6 days left in both meets. Where'd summer go ?…
Got to witness a truly great rider yesterday do something truly amazing. Yes, Javier Castellano won the $1,250,000 Travers Stakes at 20 to 1 in thrilling fashion. But was amazing to me, is that 3O minutes later, he came back on a different surface, employed different tactics, and won another…
No on top winners for us @ Del Mar yesterday, but did have a 2nd at 12-1, and a 2nd in the last race at 30-1, along with several "under" winners, including one at $56. My poor buddy played a $20 double using my top 3 in the 6th and…

Another rough day @ Del Mar Sunday---not just for us, but for the horses as well; 3 more were eased, with one being vanned off. to quote John Lithgow in "The Day After" ; "Is anyone out there---anyone at all?" SARATOGA RACE 1: Love the tradition of steeplechase racing up…
-Loyal reader, John, informed me this morning that yet another horse was pulled up and vanned off in the last @ Del Mar yesterday. I've lost count what this brings the total up to. -Don't forget, tomorrow's Saratoga Selection is just below. -Got to see another world record ( saw…
Some rapid fire thoughts : -You know, being a public handicapper ( and bettor ! ) you HAVE to be able to shake things off. Del Mar has been a BRUTALLY tough meet to figure out, with all that's been going on out there. Then last week, it appeared normalcy…
-As I bet just about most of my picks in some way, shape, or form, You KNOW I was tickled when I was walking to the track @ 1:03 yesterday to receive kudos for having my daily Saratoga Special play win @ $8.80 --- and I forgot to put in…
