I Gotta Horse Right Here

Every weekend there is action galore at the Spa. After doing homework, keeping notes, reading, and consulting with WinningPonies.com, I see there are some golden opportunities that need a another look before going to the windows.

In the opener there are a few runners worth that second look before making your big move. Especially #3 Mogul Man. Play this runner ONLY if on the weeds. Big dropper in class, and exits a sweet ITM finish in his last two efforts. Frankel is off and running, and this should add to his % nicely.

In Race #3 – #6 I’m So Lucky. A three year old runner who has been tough to get to in his starts since coming back to the races.  He has been shooting more bullets than Jesse James in the morning, and this is usually a sign that says ready to fire. Look for him to stalk just off the pace and trounce to the winners circle.

The 10th at the Spa offer a chalk players dream. #6 – Indian Blessing is 3/5, and looks the part. This is a great opportunity to use in Pick 6’s and Pick 4’s. Has won two G-1’s, and is beginning to mature into an incredible runner.

Here is some food for thought.  Before going to the windows, take a hard look at how much money you want to win.  Be sure and keep your WinningPonies.com form handy because this will allow you to plan your attack to set up multiple race exotics.
