My profit is nonexistent today so now I have to take big shots so just going with two 10.00 win bets on Blingo and Imperative.

Welcome back GOD
Hey SULLIVAN- Who do you like in this race?
Just looked at this race .Win or lose,the dynamics of this race calls for a big wager on Game On Dude. There is absolutely no quality speed other than the Dude. I would assume that the only one who could any presure on the dude,would be MMM if he decided to send. That is not his style,i expect him to be tracking 2nd or 3rd. Should anyone decide to gun (that means you Bejarano,you vindictive S.O.B.) then Smith will sit like he did in the Clark and go. But the fractions will be soft. I am giving the Dude 1 more chance,at what should be nice odds. I am hoping that they overbet the 1/2 finishers from the past BC Classic. Also in the San Felipe, really can't gauge this move as severe. Due to the uncertainnty of Schoolofhardrocks and his return. But Espinoza who is riding as good as anyone,has chosen California Chrome over him.Chrome figues to get a dream trip in here.He drew inside the speeds,Espi can be sitting a ground saving trip all the way around . Should not be less than 2 or 3 off the lead down the backstretch.

  • vodkak · Do you make these picks for shock value or are you actually going to bet $$$$ for him to win? · 540 days ago
  • jenna.heusi · i can see where you are coming from jmac....he could be an upset (a major one at that). he's an improving colt, one whose speed figures dramatically improved after the switch to dirt. i still like mmm and wtc, but i will be the first to congratulate you if imperative takes it. · 540 days ago
2013 HOY and to be 2014 HOY WILL TAKE CHARGE..nobody else...
Game On Dude is finished. Wish Baffert would let it go.

San Antonio Stakes winner Blingo, prepping for the Santa Anita Handicap, worked six furlongs Sunday with Aaron Gryder up in company with Supreme Commander for trainer John Shirreffs. Blingo was timed in 1:12.20 for six furlongs, while Supreme Commander got 1:02.60 for five furlongs, breaking five lengths in front of Blingo and finishing five lengths behind. Also working for the Big ‘Cap was San Antonio runner-up Imperative for George Papaprodromou with Kent Desormeaux aboard, going five furlongs in 1:03.
