I think Wise Dan opened up an insurmountable lead at the eighth pole with WTC not getting there in time. He probably wins the gallop out but not the race Brian.
I think you have a fair assessment on this colt. Not likely a classic type but certainly talented at this early stage. This was not a stellar field plus he had it all his own way but the track record at least indicates he ran swiftly. I wonder what he was purchased for after the MTR win? I agree with Shackleford that Rankhasprivileges showed some potential. He was very wide launching from the rear. Einstein has thrown a few winners already. He has cost me several nice tickets. About ready to give Einstein his due with his juveniles.
Game On Dude will be sub even money in this spot. Not much gambling value in playing Dude. Plus playing horses as after thoughts after disappointing BC efforts is not a strong angle. Probably a watch only race for me.
At this point with only initial handicapping started I lean Gioavanni then Outstrip. I usually don't give a ton of love or money to horses coming from Italy in the BC.
The Fugue owes me after an atrocious trip in 2012. She was loaded for bear and no where to go. I hope the bad trips that many BC horses experienced in 2012 due to turf traffic are not repeated at again SA.
I certainly hope Clenor works lights out befor the BC. Why? I want to play against her aggressively. She has run slower than par while beating absolutley nothing in SoCal where the division stinks. I don't think she has been extended but if she takes heavy money (she will) find other viable options who are battle tested versus some real competition.
The Futurity is a fun race to bet as it can be so wide open. It has zero relevance to me for BC races. I think Havana is the better animal. I would say the top three from the Champagne are lengths better than anything in the Futuriy. If Vegas offered a head to head matchup on Artie and Havana then Havana woulld go 1-5.
In the Bourbon I went six deep and still whiffed. Keeneland can be maddening at times. If I would have used your six it would have yields a $6,100 trifecta abd $237 exacta. Sometimes at KEE you have to use a shotgun instead of a laser beam. Keep the articles and selections coming.
Sad to see another good horse retired with less than 10 starts but that is the day we live in plus injuries happen frequently. I really enjoy your “how to bet his offspring” section. Most of us are gamblers at heart so that analysis is valuable. Only time will tell but you tell it straight to us.
Large fields, always on grass, lucrative purses all plusses. Video stream is atrocious for simulcast players. Buy the chicklet technology please. Players ate KEE were running around the place trying to figure out who won every race without sound it was impossible.
