Too bad, but connections had this one placed FAR too high all the time. On the farm he MIGHT be able to beat a few to the feed tub at least!

  • Cambridge_Butch via Disqus · Good write-up of your strategies. I agree that the multi-race bets are better in many ways, especially since virtually ALL of the stats we're provided in things like the DRF are geared toward the winner. For instance, the trainer stats at the bottom of a horse's running likes show things like ".20 FTS" and ".16 on turf". They don't tell you how many times that trainer finished second or third in those categories.... so picking winners is "easier" (nothing is easy in this sport) that deciphering who will run second, third and fourth. · 13 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Horses RUN trainers TEACH. Trainer stats are SO FULL OF HOLES. Imagine a fellow has ONE good three year old HORSE, not him, in the barn so HIS stats based upon THE HORSE and not him, are them Skewed to make some fool think that the trainer is some gods gift to fillies when it is the FILLY not the trainer who is gleaning the wins. Or , in the case of small sample (which the stats NEVER give you, Sample size) the fellow has two out of five that somehow are first time starter winners (a broad category that never ever is altered for level of MSW or MDCLM) and then you get the ridiculous idea that the PERSON is somehow influencing the RUN of the horse. Horses do the running, trainers watch. · 9 minutes ago

Fortunate enough to see Cougar II's FIRST North American start. Announcer at Anita, Joe Hernandez, brought him up from South America and when he won that day, I seem to recall those were the LONGEST odds at which he would go off during his entire NA career.
Very deep field but I like Fed Biz and Footbridge!

7/24: There are two Grade 3 races for 2yos on the card today. Starting with Race 3 @ 6:25pm/1:25pm EST we have the Silver Flash Stakes for 2yo fillies, 7 furlongs. There are 8 runners and no scratches so far - the runners include Raydara for H. H. Aga Khan, Marsali for Calumet, Cocoon for Coolmore, New Alliance, Jack Naylor, and Agnes Stewart as well as 2 other runners for Aidan O'Brien in As Good As Gold and Qualify. O'Brien is bidding to win this race for the fifth time, but his fillies will need to have improved greatly to take on their tough competition today. Then in Race 4 @ 6:55pm/1:55pm EST is the Tyros Stakes for 2yo colts, also 7 furlongs. There are 3 runners and no scratches - the runners include Tombelaine for Prince Khalid Abdullah, Gleneagles for Coolmore, and Convergence. This race will probably end up being between Tombelaine or Gleneagles. The going reported from Leopardstown Racecourse is good to firm with no rain. The weather forecast is warm, dry and sunny.
  • jonquil · Also, John F Kennedy, the 2yo full-brother to recent Irish Oaks runner up Tapestry is running in the first race today. It will be his debut maiden and he's the 4/7 favourite. · 2 hours ago

Wishing him a very speedy recovery. He was hospitalized Tuesday with pneumonia and remains in intensive care.
skelly, Hope you can represent the Bern Identity crew at Monmouth this weekend.We will know later today if he is entered. Battle will be in a battle at Del Mar!!!!
Though the pace will undoubtedly be hotter in the Haskell, he has a better chance in the Jim Dandy.

Love the Dance With Fate entry into the San Diego. I'll be rooting for the 3yo to take down his elders at Del Mar.
