What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Trubs...

In only a third of a century, the Super Derby has developed a rich and proud history. Many of the finest three-year-olds in American racing have ventured down to compete in the key end-of-summer event. Because of this, I was honored when asked to write the Super Derby notes and articles for Harrah’s...Read More

  • tktile · I am sick to stomach today. I capped the 10th and 11th race to perfection and only cashed place and show bets in each. I was stuck at my tile store until late and had to rush to the track but I did my handicapping at home so I had a value plan for the 10th on #7 Gung Ho who's workouts suggested he was on the improve and was a much better value than his 12/1 M/L suggested. The betting public agreed and knocked him down to 9/2. But my choice as the A+ horse was #8 Top Cat Boogie who was 5/1 M/L and going off at 12/1 when I got to the track. Was the public reading the same program. 12/1 on the high speed figure and my top contender!! I went to mattresses on him and keyed him on top. $20 win/place 5 times $1 perfecta 8w1,7,9,11 ran 10 times(I hate paying taxes for handicapping good) .50 tri 8 w1,7,9,11 ran 10 times and .10 super 8w1,7,9,11 ran 10 times. If you watched the race my horse (Gung Ho) who I was driving down to bet won by a nose in a photo finish over my key horse. Had I called in my bet i would have won $1,180 on win $680 on place $627 perfecta $2,403 tri and $2,559 super. Instead I keyed the 8 and not the 7,8 w 1,7,8,9,11 and only cashed a $502 place bet. Alright I'm pretty sick at the moment but I had capped the 11th and had a small profit in my pocket and I loved #9 Awsome Bet in the next race. To make things better I loved #4 Populist Politics also. And when I saw those odds of #9 12/1 and #4 20/1 I said self were going to make some money on this race. I figured the #1 and #5 (who I thought would have a regression coming off a best speed figure)would get in a speed dual and the 4 & 9 woul d come running late. Furthermore what's not to like about the #6 Alteration who was up against it in this one but I liked to come in 2nd,3rd or 4th. I wasn't going to make the same mistake this time $20 win/place on the 4,9 5 times 4,9 w 4,5,6,9 perfecta, trifecta and super same bets as previous race. The race went down like this... The #5 got the lead as expected but the #1 didn't get out of the gate my 4,9 had nice position but when I saw a .50 1/2 mile I knew I might be up against it but my horses came charging late and briefky took the lead but the #5 had to much left in the tank a won by a 1/2 length. I tasted throw up in my mouth. Why do I not box when I only like 4 horses in the race. In fact the #5 was such an obvious choice how could I not play a defense per tri super keying the #5 if the pace didn't set up. I cashed a $460 place bet. Salt on the wound when #4 PP paid $9.20 to show. I'm sick. The money I should have made and just figure how close I was twice in a row to making I would estimate around $15K a race had my horse got that length or nose. Thanks for listening my girl says atleast you didn't lose but I feel awful and lost my pride. And like in tennis they were unforced errors because I know better. If you need a winner don't ask me but if your looking for a good place or show horse I'm your guy. · 948 days ago ·
Wasn't able to handicap the Super derby via past performances from drf.com. But this 3 year old looked sharp winning the Super derby prelude. The Prelude was his first race off of a 5 month layoff. He has the most current work out in the WHOLE field, which was 5 days ago. Shows serious intentions for this race. He should be peaking with his 5 month freshener. Nice overlay possibility. Everything seems right for this spot.
The 2011 Super Derby looks to be a an exciting renewal, with 9 starters making it one of the largest fields in recent years.Read More

  • MichaelPavelick · @mdracing69 88 is good enough. It really depends if thats a improvement from his previous ungraded races, because it was off of a layoff. It also depends on PFR's speed rating in his w. Virg. derby victory. I will probably have a complete picture on Friday evening. So far to me Trubs is a exciting 12-1 shot. · 950 days ago ·
