The weather should be clear and in the low 80’s. First post is 9:50pm EDT.
Yesterday we took a mild loss with Dizzy Sight not firing at all and Joyous Times getting up for the place. On $12 bet, $9.60 was returned for a net loss of $2.40. The current bank is $457 bet, $500.70 returned for an roi of +5.91%
Today we are headed to the Great State of West Virginia and Charles Town for the seventh and eight races. The weather should be clear and in the low 80’s.
Equibase numbers ran through SmartCap has #4 Grumpelstiltskin (7/5) has best overall speed, near best overall class best last and second best last race. Also, the 2 last race column shows a 113.7/432.35 denoting a fast race versus lower competition. You’ll notice that SmartCap Money Sheet (which, by the way, you can buy for your personal use for $10, inquire to SmartCap@bettorsinsider.com) has this gelding as best in money per race at CT and a 29% win rate. He’ll be a tough out with leading rider Arnaldo Bocachica in the irons.
#8 Awesome Faith (6/1) has best overall class and third best speed. He is coming off a long layoff and his trainer, Jeffrey Allen, is a pedestrian 0% in this role. However, of late, this Friesan Fire gelding has two particularly good works at 4f. Look for him to jump out of the gate and head to the front.
#7 Bacoli (4/1) has second best in his last race with strong speed and class numbers.
Since finding out late that #1 Sudden Breeze has been scratched, I am going with #7 Bacoli. Trainers do not scratch their lesser horse and this Anthony Farrior gelding must be the better. Farrior is 56% off 2-6 months, 27% in route to sprints and 27% with JD Acosta up.
$28K Allowance for fillies and mares that are 3yo’s+ NW2 going 4.5f
To say that #3 Campy Cash (8/5) checks all the boxes in SmartCap is a gross understatement. In addition to that, she has the leading connections of Runco/Bocachica whom are hitting at a 34% win rate together.
Who am I to argue? Let’s go with her.
