Just looking at the PPs and trying to figure out how an 80-1 horse ran 2nd. Once read that great betting angles, when betting young 2 or 3 year old horses are the addition of blinkers. Sometimes the "subtraction" is a winning angle.
Not bragging that I nailed the $94 exacta or I had bet 1000$ to place and won 20,000$ (40$) place.
Just a bunch of pluses in this horses corner....---quality jock in Jaramillo (racing on his home track). The horse had had a quality workout w/o blinks....47.4. Stretching out to 2 turns....
Blinkers 1st time is a big deal. Especially if the PP shows the runner (usually a maiden) got out of the gate fast, lead, then became mush, once the runner saw other horses.
Third time back (to racing again) third time on a drop (in class /money) equally as good.
Adding the speed rating + track variant of contenders not shabby.
a la DRF
Longer races see where runners are at 6 fl. Front runner or closer..can they make a race out of the company they face today with the expect early fractions that are most likely.
