Got home top pick Cadet Roni ($10.60) plus a $6 copy of the Exacta w/Hennythelovepenny.
Another nice HRN winner at Keeneland. Got Lucky ($9.20) + a .20 cent copy of the Superfecta.
Thanks, biggar and Josh. I thought Brody's Cause might be a decent one. I included him on my first HRN Derby 2016 contenders list earlier this week.
Brody's Cause ($25.60) + Trifecta. He made an impressive run to score convincingly.
Just like Conquest Big E yesterday, Greenpointcrusader is another promising contender from my first Derby 2016 blog that I posted for HRN earlier this week.
Statement from Dr. Barry Schumer, Keeneland Medical Director, on jockeys Shaun Bridgmohan and Kendrick Carmouche, who were involved in a spill during the fifth race at Keeneland on Saturday. On Bridgmohan: “He was complaining of pain in his left ankle, but he was able to walk out of Keeneland’s First Aid on his own. He’s taking off his mounts for the rest of the day, but he appears to be OK.” On Carmouche: “He is going to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for X-rays and evaluation. He was complaining of chest pain, but he was alert and conscious.”
Got home Red Button ($8) plus the Superfecta.
Flavien Prat, who suffered multiple injuries in a spill at Los Alamitos on Sept. 17, was a visitor at Clockers’ Corner Friday along with his agent, Derek Lawson. “He got out of the hospital a week ago,” Lawson said, “but he’ll have to wear a protective vest (brace) for the next three months. After that, we’ll see what happens. He has an appointment with a neurosurgeon on Oct. 9 and we’ll get an update then. What’s bothering him more than anything is the punctured (right) lung. That’s what’s been hurting him the most, but today he feels really good. This morning was the first day he’s felt no pain in his chest.” Prat, a 23-year-old native of France, had 83 victories from 576 mounts this year before suffering injuries to his vertebrae and his lung. He is expected to be sidelined three months.
I like Conquest Big E as well. He was #7 on my Derby 2016 contenders blog that I posted earlier this week.
There will be a Super High 5 carryover of $13,706 when racing resumes Thursday. The $1 minimum bet, which requires a player to pick the first five finishers, is offered daily on the final race. The Thursday card concludes with a $20,000 maiden claiming race for older fillies & mares . The one mile race drew 10 entrants plus two also-eligibles.
