To each his own, but my Tri Betting Strategy is I DON'T BET THEM unless I like ONE HORSE specifically to WIN, PLACE or SHOW. ONy Then will I bet a P/W TRI.
Does Rise Up take his spot next to or just behind New Years Day as the early Derby favorite, nearly 6 months til the 1st Saturday of May? I liked Casiguapo, glad he showed up to be "Best of the rest".
I'm on the East Coast, made it to the wee hours of the morning til 15 MTP before falling alseep, but she (Gentildonna) ceratinly looked the part in the paddock and walking ring. TVG had her 9-2 2nd choice before the Sandman came calling.
I agree with your rankning Matt. I enjoy wagering from the comfort of my home, but there's nothing like being at the track or the next best thing, an OTB filled with crazy personalities. ;)
NERSC has (until Nov. 30th) a restaurant and adequate bar space. IHMO, MJC never put the necessary advertising $$$ into promoting it. Plus, about a year ago the T'bred & harness folks dispute meant NERSC was unable to carry ANY harness tracks. That killed most of their night business. Even though that dispute is now settled, once those customers find another venue (Del Park is 20 minutes away), they'll never come back.
Folks outside the Mid-Atlantic region surely had never heard of PORT CONWAY LANE. He was a cheap claimer who in 242 starts ('71-'83) WON 52 times, PLACED 39 and SHOWED 36. How many horses can you name who won 50+ races in their career?
Last KY Derby winner who also won the Remsen was Thunder Gulch (1994). Since then I only Bluegrass Cat (2nd in KY Derby 2006) has even gotten close to a Remsen-KY Derby double. So for my money, whoever wins the Remsen, could be an "auto-toss" come the 1st Satgurday in May.
Even if you only cashed two tickets, then that's 1 more than I did all BC Saturday. Now I know why BC and the Triple Crown series are held 6 months apart... so fans can have time to replenish their funds to feed the ponies.Derby is just 6 months away! Save up!
@Sully - not sure that "mix" is a good thing, LOL! Whoever had the foresight to make their picks based on the STRONG SPEED BIAS... kudos to you!
Nice post Brian! It's worth $28 to put $2 to WIN on each cuz it only takes one to potentially return a profit.
