Thurs/Fri/Saturday 80% chance of rain. Its gonna be a wet one. Time to start looking for a mudder and a front runner. Might Win Win Win get gunned for the lead? Omaha Beach/ Maximum Security down the stretch duel. A Bob Baffert trifecta?
I hate that. All the handicapping we do to narrow things down, and then this variable comes in confusing the heck out of me. Vekoma, Roadster, Game Winner, Code of Honor, and Tax have not raced on a wet track. Tacitus, Spinoff, Maximum Security, War of Will, and Master Fencer have a win in one start over a wet track. Plus Que Parfait, Win Win Win, Cutting Humor, and Improbable have decent 2nd place finishes. Omaha Beach has multiple wins over an off track. it is notable that Plus Que Parfait and War of Will ran well at CD's wet track. I don't see any that seems to particularly despise the surface, although CD can be a different animal, but that's true even if dry. Bottom line for me is I have seen nothing so far that is overwhelming one way or another. I will allow my plans thus far to remain.
NOTE: Just to be clear, this info came from another website that I ran across. I can't attest to its accuracy.
Heard 20% chance of rain for Saturday, here today.
Really hard to tell. This time of year, rain is comon
With any addd complications such as slop, I will probably just do two w/p/s bets on horses I like, and some completely STRAIGHT trifectas and superfectas with very few horses in each tier, like 2
Can't cap for a million different situations then also cap for slop---and if slop, race will most likely be quite chalky
