Turfer tops are 4 Seek Again 8 Alert Bay 5 Avanzare 3 Bal a Bali (BRZ) 2 best ever list them : 4 Seek Again 8 Alert Bay 9 Big Bane Theory 7 Midnight Storm
As odd as this sounds, the contenders are: 8 Effinex 1 Keen Ice 6 Hoppertunity 7 Shotgun Kowboy 3 Mr. Z 7 3 go out then 8 5 1 6 come later. Back class gives: 9 Race Day 1 Keen Ice 8 Effinex 5 Protonico so this could be a very odd one.Best Early are 8 Effinex 3 Mr. Z 9 Race Day 5 Protonico race has a good chance for a price
BIG field, traffic problems predicted on that track. Initial evaluation: 6 The Pizza Man 2 Up With the Birds 5 Procurement 11 Southern Freedom 14, 2, 6, 12 historically the best efforts. Historically the best late movers are 14 Big John B 2 Up With the Birds (like this guy but he is a known "hanger" 6 The Pizza Man 13 Wanstead Gardens 15 Flamboyant (FR) If this field ran REALLY back to form, the 14 towers, relatively, over this field but since trips are so very important on the lawn, even that advantage might not be good enough
Before the OVER HYPED Breeder's Cup screwed p the logical ascension of a year end champion, this contest was pivotal for the Eclipse for sprinter. The great Ta Wee won it twice under imposts of 130 and 140 pounds. My Livermore also was successful at that same high weight penalty. 7 La Verdad overlooked in the Breeder's Cup sprint 6 Salutos Amigos 2 Palace 1 Captain Serious The trio of 6 Salutos Amigos 1 Captain Serious 2 Palace stand out historically but La Verdad is the "hot" one now. Odds will take a hit on that notion so I would not hold my breath looking for a price here. Just watch and enjoy raw speed. LOTS of front end in this contest, but that track favors that style...WILL be a good one to watch
Track biases often appear and disappear with little fanfare. The early
bias extant currently has been "alive and well" now for almost 10 days.
Calgary Cat a big (and NORMALLY logical) favorite (on a fair track) and
short short price, seemed to never pick up a hoof Sunday, and then last
night the big 3/5 choice, Strut the Course, imitated the same "no move,"
as the pace horses kept on going.
Not limited to the just the
higher class animals, cheaper stock from Fort Erie and hanging on to the
wire...Saratoga Boy in last night's last contest among others.
bias can disappear as fast as it arrived, so with 4 days left in the
season, UNTIL IT DISAPPEARS, it would be smart to back the historically
"faint of heart." Big middle and late movers are at a significant
disadvantage right now.
odds made it a non-bettable one
7 2 3 5 at the wire...2 went out as predicted and nearly stole the showQUOTE: 2 y/o analysis:7 Wild About Harry 2 Eloweasel 8 Singsong 3 Flatware
Flamboyant and very productive stable likes to see their charges running, so whatever reason this one is absent, it is for a very logical reason.
one of the trio of 2 3 6 can be up front for a very long time in this one
I will NEVER understand the old wives tale about how every horse that has a BAD race will, magically, IMPROVE many lengths next out. There is NO evidence of that
