Did You See It?

The Haskell will take place this weekend at Monmouth Park. Originally it was scheduled to be on TVG, but some new plans have been made. It will be televised on ESPN News, Classic, and TVG for viewers to take in the action. It will be 30 minutes of riveting action. That you can bet on. No matter who wins, the coverage should be top shelf.

There are $1 million reasons that say this race will be action packed. The track itself will have PLENTY of water as compared to Belmont Day when the water was shut off for the biggest day of the year in New York. The restrooms didn’t even work, and one could hear Tom Durkin directing patrons to visit the backyard in the paddock area where ample privacy could be found.

Big Brown is gearing up to silence the naysayers. You can bet he will be there to give his all in front of a record crowd. The roster of challengers is set, and he is scheduled to face possibly 7 contenders at the time this was written.

As a betting person I would want direction. On the big days you can fire away, and the tote board won’t budge. You will find value in all exotics such as the Pick 3’s and Pick 4’s in particular. I advise you to start at WinningPonies.com and make your plans in advance. This will be a value packed day with an incredible under-card. I know folks in the racing office, and they are very excited about the days events overall. So, with that being said, what are you waiting for? There is no invitation to the winners circle, and it starts right here. The wagering info will be ready; the horses are tuned up; the TV coverage has been expanded, and the only thing missing is you. So be ready to see the BB express come rolling this weekend, and while you’re at it, you might as well get healthy at the windows. We’re ready, are you?
