CORRECTION: Payoff was $58.40 for 50 cent payoff. Profit meager $13.40, but profit, nonetheless.
Well, Jasen, sorry I let you down. I tried your Trifecta theory, and managed to make it work. Only problem was, only a $29.20 return for $45 bet. The #7 was bet down from 15-1 to 7-2, rising ever so slightly to 6-1. Guess I didn't foresee that. Oh well, the next best thing to winning???? Getting a casher. At least some of your losses are absorbed. Wait til next week. A little bit of Bourbon, and I'll get some Courage, for the Clark Handicap!!!!!
No love for Rum Point? O'Neill shipping in from California, where this colt has extensive synthetic experience. Adding blinkers. I do like your picks though. Good luck.
Wow!!! That was an impressive run for Almost Famous. Looks like you could make a pretty decent field of 2YO's that are currently at Churchill. Almost Famous, Strong Mandate(worked out yesterday), Cleburne, Smart Cover, Tapiture, Ride On Curlin(top 4 finishers of Iroquois). Maybe throw in Wired Bryan and that filly, Sweet Reason, and you'd have quite a few that might make that first Saturday in May. Looks like an exciting crew forming. Hopefully, they will avoid injury, and provide something that we haven't seen in a while.
Point Given, Street Cry, Dubai Millenium, Afleet Alex, Smarty Jones, Saint Liam, Curlin, Frankel, Giant's Causeway, and Tiznow.

Hadn't seen your picks in a while, Ace. I didn't post today, for this race's field came up too short. But, good luck on your picks. As well as you know, I normally like to take a stab at the bombs. I probably would side with Successful Dan. Got squeezed in his last race against Fort Larned. Record is 8-for-13 career, and 12-1 has a little harmony to it. See ya' at the Cashier's window!!!!
Well, rafi, you asked me yesterday who I liked, and I guessed that no money could be made, for he looked like a monster. He didn't disappoint in description. One thing in his favor, that could prove to be a detriment in the Travers? He ran over the Monmouth oval in the Pegasus, in preparation for the Haskell, thus, bypassing the Jim Dandy. Could that hurt him, that he didn't have a prep race over the Saratoga oval? We shall see.
Can't make any money on a chalk favorite, but other than his debacle in the Derby, Verrazano looks to be a monster. Oxbow seems to show up for all of his races. If I was to eye a longshot, I seem to be teetering toward Golden Soul. There you have it. To answer your question, I brought up three horses, out of seven. Give me a little more time, and the other four will start to look better. Why is it that I feel like I'm in the desert and I'm looking at a mirage. All of them will look good, eventually, when you're in a dry spell. Ha!!!!!
Thanks, rafi. I envied you today. To be able to enjoy that experience. Wow!!! Going back a few years, but on Travers Day, to stand by the hedgerow, and watch Holy Bull walk by me, was a goose bump experience. Saratoga is awesome.
