Best performance on Friday, may have been the Brad Cox trained son of Into Mischief, Giant Mischief. He defeated the Baffert colt, Arabian Lion. They battled down the stretch, leaving the rest of the field 17 lengths behind!
Second race for both. Cox was sneaky with Giant Mischief, 9/22/22 1st race at Horseshoe 5.5 f dirt 1.04.63 Awarded E 69,E 101 here
Bumped hard start 6 lengths behind at the first call, checked 9/16 had to alter course, ran last half furlong in 5.43 for the win.
MSW $30,000 $475,000 purchase, Baffert did his usual at Santa Anita his horse 6f 1.09 change.
Cox has a string at Horseshoe , suggest looking for 2 year olds of his there!
reminds me of East Coast trainers slip 2 year olds into Parx and Delaware, many times on a Monday
when its dark at top tracks, Fair Hill farm Workers like Graham Motion string can show up anywhere
Mostly at Laurel Park.
princeofdoc said...I'm expecting Echo Again to run huge and be the favorite for the BC Juvy.....
I had him in one of my watches, ran 7th in the Iroquois and no works since late October. Dunno what Asmussen is dong with him but pretty sure I will see him at Oaklawn soon in person.
2 I am watching
Signator that McGaughey has
Although the seeking the gold bms is a problem for me, but interesting that McGaughey trained Seeking the Gold.
Although Blame did okay in the BC Classic and Take Charge Brandi did well in the BC Juvie Fillies. I just would not use this one in KY Derby except bottom of a super, they have good speed for the prep races though but in KY Derby usually turn out like Pants on Fire type.?
King Elvis that Attfield has
This one I like a lot. Esp. since canadian track horses often get ignored and/or don't make any lists.
Sometimes we watch a horse we think will do something, like I "was" watching Above Suspicion at one point, the filly Mandella has, Farish breeding in 2019 and she turned out quite poorly, but I thought that when I looked at the pedigree anyway. No idea what he is doing with her now-----working, but i think this one will remain in CALI unless he can turn her around.
You must not bet turf Horses very often, the 6 I looked at on message 1352 is the message you must have meant to
address to me and not message 1350. I got emails asking me what you meant ,didn't make sense on message 1350.
I listed 6 horses of the 14 entered a day before the race on 1352 not knowing turf conditions with a mix of gd, fm, yl. etc.
Race day it was a fm track and some Euros gd race types can run ok on fm.
Message 1358 I listed The Runups,
Message 1360 I listed my Pick and bet
10th Keeneland - Friday, November 4th, 2022 8f turf
$ 20 win #1 Victoria Park 6-1, Thats a Pick , can't bet the 4 at 9-5, hope the pick likes firm turf
He and 2nd place #4 Silver Knott had the shortest runups 2 of the tools I used to bet the Winner.
Mandela raced Beholder's baby girl today. She showed early speed, then stopped. Her mom did not win first out either, and Mandela said that she was a bit "fat", indicating that she wasn't completely fit.
Also, did you know that Flightline has a juvenile full brother named Olivier? He seems to have similar leg problems!
I didn't know about Olivier and looked him up, Thanks. Stopped works in September until then his works were
positive. I don't know the Similar Leg problems Story.
