Well, this is the "Calm before the storm" week. A week of hype for next weeks' Preakness begins today, and as of yet the race really isn't shaping up to be a great one, but thigs can change between now and entry time. On to the card... Santa Anita - 5/9…
Welcome back, ya'all. Santa Anita was closed yesterday due to scalding heat ( 108 degrees ), and although today isn't supposed to be that bad ( 95 ), it's still a mite warm. You may be well served to pay much attention to the horses in the paddock and during…
So so day at the office yesterday with just 2 winners, but we made up for it with FOUR $12 exacta box winners paying $25, $20, $13, and $66, to go along with a $201 Triple box ( $12 bet ) for good measure.  Our best bet of the day…
  Well here it is, the big day. I truly do get excited for today. Not so much that it's my favorite race, because it isn't ( The King's Bishop ). It's the tradition I dig. Keep the field this size, keep the Triple Crown spaced the way it is,…
Finished off an abbreviated opening week last week with a nice lil' profit, and this week ( on the Santa Anita front, at least ), will be a short one as well. We swap S.A. for Churchill on Saturday for the Run For The Roses ( along with a slew…
Wow. What a day for us yesterday. Where ya' wanna start ? Okay--our top picks. Well, Churchill isn't a "meet" for us, per se, but for the 14 races we ended up with a flat bet profit. ( $38.60 returned for $28 bet. ) Okay, everyone seems to be a…
Well, here it is, a rite of spring---the 140th running of The Kentucky Oaks. Amazingly, this race has never missed a beat--even with multiple wars during it's history. Past winners include Rachel Alexandra, recent Hall of Fame inductee, Ashado, and Alcibiades. Woody Stephens trained 5 winners, and my main man,…
Still a bit on the snakebit side, with a winner and 4 seconds, yesterday. ( One of those seconds was @ 14-1, and keyed a $58 exacta box. ) Our Beatable Favorite lost again, so we're doing pretty well in that category, so we'll keep plugging along, as it's a…
What a fickle game this is. After having a hot end to last week, we get skunked yesterday. Although we ended up with 2 seconds and 2 thirds, our "under" picks were the stars of the day, going a combined 5 for 16, returning about $74 in the process. Hopefully…
