Saturday, March 8 results

In the Louisiana Derby, J Be K got caught in a speed duel and faded late. Pyro put in another big late run to get the job done.

In the sixth at Santa Anita, Suziqutie ran as anticipated to win going away and paid a very nice $8.80.

In the ninth at Santa Anita, we blew the trifecta but caught the exacta when Ariege won and Golden Doc A ran second. The exacta paid $29 for a $2 wager.

At Bay Meadows, our key horse got scratched leaving us with no action.


Sunday, March 9


This looks to be another real tough card. We will have to tread lightly and wait for some better betting opportunities.

I am going to play a late double since it looks like the favorite in Race 9 could be very beatable. Also in the ninth I will use No. 6 Zenyatta, a rising superstar, as my key. We will also make some doubles with No. 2 Double Trouble, who looks to be in top form but will have to run her best to win.

Race 9: $5 doubles keying 8 and $2 doubles keying 2 with Race 10 numbers 4-6-9-10-12



In the sixth race, I like No. 8 Awesome’ncool who ran a winning race in her first try. Cool just did get beat by a filly called Downtown Lover, who came right back and won again. Awesome’ncool will be very hard to down in this 6-furlong 8k maiden race. I will key her in the Pick 4 and also make some Q’s and a tirfecta. In the Q, I will key 8 with 2-4-11 and make a tri 8 with 2-4-11 all. The Pick 4 will look like this:

Race 6: 8;

Race 7: 3-5

Race 8: 4-6-7

Race 9: 3-6.

This $1 Pick 4 will cost only $12
