Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 7/12/16

There’s nothing like a little shortcut to the winner’s circle. Think of it as a free lunch of sorts when you have a trained set of eyes watching races and combing over replays. – If I had to quote what handicappers wished they had done more, most would answer “go back and watch the last race or two.” – Well, here are some runners you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for and you didn’t have to sit and watch replays until your eyes were tired. – Trip handicapping is just one part of the puzzle and using the E-Z Win Forms to see where they fit in on their next race day is ultra-important.

 

Arlington

 

7/9/16 – Race #4 – 1 1/16 on turf

#2 – Al’s Gal = Corey Lanerie’s mount was bumped soundly and carried out wide leaving the gate.

 

7/9/16 – Race #5 – 1 mile on the turf

#7 – Bump Bump = Mitchell Murrill had the call and his mount clipped heels at the top of the lane and was held up.

 

7/9/16 – Race #8 – 1 1/8 on the turf

#1 – Oscar Nominated = Lanerie’s mount was 3 wide at the 1/4 pole and bumped soundly.

 

7/9/16 – Race #9 – 1 1/16 on the turf

#12 – Sunset Knoll = Hopped at the start and still drew off by three for most of the way. That little antic at the gate break may have caused her to get 3rd money.
