Race 4: 4th@ 5.10/1
Race 9: 1st@ 34.00/1 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Aqueduct featured their world- renowned gold rail early on today. Any horse who made it to the rail in the first four races of the day won. In Race 2, we tabbed Left Leaning Lucy to get the jump on the fraudulent 1/5 favorite but she broke slowly and was inexplicably taken back off the pace while Mashnee Girl rolled for the win at 12/1. In Race 4, our rider did his level best to get to the rail from post 8 but the race was over by the time he did and he checked in a “better than it looks” 4th. By Race 9, they had gone over the track a few times and we ended up with more fair conditions. Our longshot selection Dontbelate stalked the early pace and took charge in the stretch at MASSIVE odds of 34/1 here in the United States. I know 2022 has had a choppy start and this can be a game of peaks and valleys. Congratulations to all those who have stuck with us during the valleys so you can enjoy the peaks.
A winner and two off the board finishes for us on the day. Let’s shift our tack west to Oaklawn for Friday’s race card, as we continue our tour of U.S. Racetracks. I’m expecting cloudy conditions and chilly temperatures. Let’s get started.

Friday pick for Oaklawn Park:
Race 1: Uncle Mo’s Cat - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 6/1)
Maiden claimers go a mile and a sixteenth here and despite the fact that Uncle Mo’s Cat lost his most recent start by more than 7 lengths, I think he ran a winning race. What is wrong with you?? How could you say he ran a winning race?! He wasn’t even close. Well, he broke from post 12 of 12 that day racing for the first time at Oaklawn, first time on a muddy track in only his second career start on dirt. He went to the lead and defeated 10 other horses while running second to a blowout winner in Motion Picture. The race he ran last time out would win most maiden claiming races and I think it wins this one. Start the day at 6/1 with Uncle Mo’s Cat.
Best of luck to everyone playing Friday’s races from Oaklawn!
