Blind Luck was great today. For a seven-horse field, this was actually a race that you could crush. The key was Rose Catherine. If she couldn't hold off the mighty Tapitsfly (kidding) after a fairly easy lead over a fast and front turf course in the Juv Filly Turf, then how would she cover that distance on synthetic with Bickersons, who is a nice filly, right on her tail. I thought both were toss-outs, plus It Tiz, who looked overmatched. That totally opened things up and left only four contenders. Blind Luck and Beautician were plays on top of Miss Heather Lee, an improving Baffert horse who was overlayed at 19-1 on the basis of her 82 Beyer figure (the favorites were sporting 86 and 87), and Amen Hallelujah, who was a must use on the basis of her figures plus Dutrow shipping her cross country. The $1 tri wheel 37 over 1347 over 1347 cost only $12. I actually played a few more horses in third. I keyed the 1 & 4 in first, second and then in third on separate $1 tri tickets (caught it twice), but should have played it much harder. The tri paid $210 for a $1, which is quite amazing when you think that a 9-5 shot was on top. Not to mention, that in a seven-horse field, there are only 210 trifecta possibilities. Certainly, this had to be a lot more likely than 210-1.
