Working on the Sir Barton Race 12 ... trying to hit the super in this baby ...realize because of the weather this may be difficult , but why go for it ...
Horses shipping in after a Keeneland prep have done very well in the Preakness since they switched to dirt.
Pony Up .. raced 3rd closing at same distance with Grade 3 ...now the drop in class
If Baffert has Ax Man ready ( which I paper he does ) ...that 101 Beyer vs 54 K Maiden Special Weight , is very solid ... Unraced as a 2year old ....
Prince Lucky ... New Trainer / Jockey and won over the track ....not sure what the G means before the L ( Lasix ) ??? anyone ???
G L 116 ...
Title Ready ...another horse to consider , but that post may hurt ? Has the class to compete here ... Asmussen horse ...
Not complete tosses yet ...Forest Fire ... won on a muddy track at Laurel vs cheaper
Dream baby Dream ....has some class but lost to Title Ready
Takedown has a win over the track vs cheaper ...
So far ...may change ... looking at
Exacta ....2,8 / 1,2,6,8,9,10,11
Tri 2,8,/ 1,2,6,8,9,10,11 / 1,2,6,8,9,10,11 ....if not too costly ...lol
Super 2,8,/ 1,2,6,8,9,10,11 / 1,2,6,8,9,10,11 / all....if not too costly ...lol
Anyone interested in talking about this race ...pipe in ....
The G next to the Lasix L signifies the horse has been Gelded. And is running his 1st time as a gelding.
Much appreciate the help ... thank u !!!
Ugh, they used to have that Dixie right up against the Preakness, now have that turf sprint leading off P3. Makes me even less inclined to bet anything. I Paddy O Prado /Shackleford double was a good one. Had some others in the Dixie over the years, don't like this setup.
Now all but the Gallorette off the turf, four horse left I think in the Dixie. And that cheap turf sprint they put in the middle of all the P# is moved to dirt. My betting will be near nil. Should just protest and not bet verticals at all. Terrible decision to put that race there.
Is the Dixie still considered a G2 after off turf and all the scratches? Easy black type.
Old Time Revival better than current odds, may try across on this one just in case. 2-5 fav put away the other speed I tried to beat him with. Either impressive or had the sweet spot.
Like Laki as a price horse in 10th. Does Santana have the sweet spot on the track.
On dirt playing that combo a little in 11th, but mostly the 7. Nothing in the next three races, probably continued chalk, with that said, it now will be bombs. P3 may pay a buck.
With GM 5-1 might have to do a contratian tri with him on top. But main play will be straight tri and super and hope.
Hit the pic 3 and 4 but paid zip .... hit the exacta , tri and super in Preakness .. cleared $300 for the day , bet on 5 races all at Pimlico ... Dude if that 8 would have beat Justify ... real nice payday here , but I'm good with the 3 bills on the day ....on to the Belmont we go ...
Thanks again for all your help ... and feedback
had $12 on p3, but the P4 went for a longer price for straight p4 since did not expect anything with favs would pay anything across the last three races so went for it there as I felt it had more of a chance of an upset than the next two races. Everything I played was straight, tri and super as well. I did put down a good last minute place show on Justify after noticing the pools, he ended up paying same for place as the W and $0.20 difference for show.
