“Problem Ponies” – Horses to Watch – 6/7/16

As the Belmont stakes approach, there is something missing. Oh, yeah. There’s no Triple Crown hopeful. – Now we can get down to the business of handicapping instead of being torn rooting for history to be made. – The card will be incredible from Friday – Saturday, and this may be the best wagering opportunity you will have outside of Breeders’ Cup. Maybe even better. In the meantime, here are some horses you’ll want to add to your horses to watch list. They had a troubled trip last out and may offer an incredible betting opportunity next out.


Arlington Park


6/4/16 – Race #7 – One mile on the all-weather

#6 – Crusader Girl Too = Noel Vigil was the pilot and was bumped leaving the starting gate and never regained her best form. Next out and a drop from stakes company may do wonders.


6/4/16 – Race #8 – 1 1/16 on the AW track

#9 – Prince Cheval = Jose Valdivia opened up a large lead and dictated the pace. He set very quick fractions and was just beat in the shadow of the wire. – He’ll carry it from flag fall to that’s all next time out.



Monmouth Park


6/4/16 – Race #1 –  6f on the dirt

#1 – Sassy Silk = Jose Ferrer had the call, and his mount was tardy leaving the gate and had to check up sharply at the 5/8th’s pole as the beaten favorite. So many good betting angles to follow right back.


6/4/16 – Race #3 – 1 1/16 on the turf

#9 – Break Away = Victor LeBron in the irons and he was forced to race in tight company and once he broke free he made a very nice run to finish a solid fourth. Maybe he’ll get a little cleaner trip and a visit to the winner’s circle is in his future.


6/4/16 – Race #7 – 1 1/16 on the turf

#10 – Sanad = Nik Juarez was the pilot and he made a nice run with a perfect stalking trip only to forced to steady briefly in mid-stretch and continue on with a solid rally for 4th.





Santa Anita

6/4/16 – Race #1 –  5 1/2f on the dirt

#4 – Turf Club Queen = Chad Lindsey had the call, and he stalked the pace perfectly and was forced to steady and drop back in the pack. – Once he got his wits about him, he finished up strongly for a place spot.


6/4/16 – Race #3- 6f on the dirt

#4 – Prince Valiant = Santiago Gonzalez had the mount and was bumped and steadied early in the race. Once he readjusted his action, he made up a good bit of ground looking promising next up.
