Yesterday’s results

At Hollywood the track got what they wanted, a pick six carryover going into today’s big Belmont card, its just amazing who so many top choices get in all the trouble. In race one our picks ran second and third, we had the winner in the second but ran second once again in race three. We ran second and third in the fourth getting nosed once again for a big win. Our key horse in race five went off at even money and just got in so much trouble it was a joke finishing third beaten less then a length. We got nosed once again in race six, had the winner in the seventh and ran second in race eight. At the Gate we got beat at the wire in race one but hit our play in race two with the winner paying $30.40 and the exacta paid $61.80 for two bucks. We lost race’s three four and five but ran one two in race six. Our play in the seventh ran third and the odds on choice won the last race.

Belmont Park

Race 11

The 140th Running of the GR 1 Belmont Stakes

We will just probably watch as the only horse that looked to have a shot at Big Brown, Casino Drive was scratched this morning with a bad foot. Big Brown will be 1-9 and it looks like a walk in the park. If playing some trifectas we would use the 3-4-7 behind him.

Hollywood Park

Race 1

No. 5, In Daddy’s Honor, has four second from four starts here and just did miss by a head and a neck in his last two tries, bet against at a short price. No. 3, Havens Lake, looks like the one. 3-5

Race 2

No. 11, Syndicator, looks set to graduate, the other two in here are No. 3, Tizsong and No. 13, Military Power who gets the best of the post positions. 3-11-13

Race 3

No. 11, Solar Miss, ran huge in her first try on this 6f turf course and if she don’t bounce she will win.

Key Play
