Saber's Horse Racing Best Bets Thursday - 06-26-08

Yesterday’s results

At Hollywood Park we ran second in the first three races, but popped with long shot Glorious One in race four with a nice win of $33.60. Our key play in race five won and paid $9.40 for the win and $5 for the place. Our key play in race six went nuts when the gate opened and jockey T. Baze could not control him. We nailed it when we stated Afleet Ruler in race eight was a hanger –he finished second again at 1-2 but we could not come up with the winner. We had no luck in race eight but we are looking at a $747,253 carryover today, so we will take a shot. At Pleasanton we finished second in races four and five but finished one-two-three in race six and had the winner in race seven. We lost race eight but ran first and second in race nine. We had the winner in race ten but our other two ran out.

HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 3

This will start leg one of the huge pick six carryover and it looks like the two favorites own this race with No. 6, Angus, dropping and getting back to the cushion and No. 7, Informed, also taking the big drop looking for win number two. 6-7

Race 4

This is one ugly race and we will have to go deep using No. 1, Warren’s Jack V, who just missed last time out at a flat mile. No. 3, Cold Prince, just may have found a field weak enough to get that elusive maiden breaking win; No. 5, Vanaldi, drops and gets the leading man in the irons, No. 8, Black Magic, a first timer with some decent works and No. 9, Deputy Prize, a lightly raced 3yo colt may like this 7f distance. 1-3-5-8-9

Race 5

No. 3, Cousins Lew, is the speed of the speed in this 7f race and he was re-claimed by Koriner last time our for $10k after losing him for $16k two races back, in face this guy has been claimed four straight times. No. 5, Austie, takes a huge drop in class but if he is ok he will be coming late. No. 6, Refinery, gets off the turf and should be legged up for a big late run on the drop down. No. 9, Celtic Sword, comes off a nice win her on May 30 and is moved up a notch, his jock Rosario is riding great. 3-5-6-9

Race 6

It is single time and we will take our shot with No. 3, Ann’s Approval, as she sheds her blinkers and gets Bejarano for start number three; she exits a key race also. No. 3

Race 7

No. 1, Mostacolli Mort, is in top form and just ran the best race of his career on this course – he will be flying late. No. 4, Luhuk’s Dancer, gets his third start on this circuit and he ran very good for Carla Gaines in both tries just missing last time by a half-length; he has speed and leading jock Bejarano, who rode Mort last time for the win. 1-4

Race 8

No. 3, Ten Churros, stopped on a dime in her first start but has worked ok since and the drop can only help her chances. No. 9, Stagebrush Angel, is a first time starter who looks live at 10-1. No. 10, Soup Deeohdouble G, was unlucky to lose last time and is the one to beat here. 3-9-10

Key Play

$2 Pick Six for $480 total

PLEASANTON

Race 3

In this race No. 2, My Cee Vee, is in from Hollywood for trainer Miyadi and will be bet like a good thing; she may win but at even money or less we will go with No. 4, Justaboutperfect, who is 10-1 in the morning line and is in the third race off a layoff, she looks ready for a big run. No. 4

Key Play

$20 win and place on No. 4 for $40

Race 4

No. 4, Holiday Harbor, is listed at 8-1 in the morning line and if anywhere near that price he is worth a bet. No. 4

Key Play

$10 win and place on No. 4 for $20

Race 5

1-2-4-6

Key Play

$1 tri box 1-2-4-6 for $24

Race 6

4-5-7

Race 7

This looks like a cold, two-horse race with No. 6, Funny Thor, and No. 8, Shakin’ Jake – we will use both in the late pick four. 6-8

Race 8

1-7-10

Race 9

In this race jockey Beato rides for trainer Miyadi on No. 7, Warrens Secret, and that means it’s a go. No. 6, Man of Charisma, gets a new jock and blinkers; he also exits the same race as Warrens Secret. 6-7

Race 10

No. 2, T J’s Dixie, exits a tough turf race and fits well with this bunch. No. 6, Peace Accord, is stretched out and dropped to his claimed price by trainer Morey after running poorly first off the claim; he will go better in this spot. No. 7, Tom West, has speed, Hollendorfer and Baze. 2-6-7

Key Play

$1 Pick Four for $36 total

7th 6-8

8th 1-7-10
