Howdy guys -
I'm focusing on tomorrow's soccer card and going to hold off today. . . I do have one race pick though. . . and it is a bit risky as I am going against the clear favorite.
Race 6 - Sam Houston Race Park - Houston, Texas. 6 furlongs, 7,500 claiming race . . . cheap race.
The 6 is the clear favorite . . . I have followed this horse for a while, and not simply because my ex decided to shag the trainer while we were together. . . anywho, 6 is a strong closer. 6 has been kicking ass and taking names. 6 has won his last two races . . . in his last two races, he turned in very respectable beyer speed figs of 75 and 71 . . . those races were run at the same conditions as the race tonight. . . . The first flag I see is that his last three races were run on off tracks . . . true, four races back, he hit a 72 beyer in a 7,500 claimer on a fast track at 5.5 furlongs . . . but still, I think that the off track races and those wins are skewing the odds a bit and should sucker in Joe Public ("hey, this horse has won two in a row") . . .
Don't get me wrong . . .the 6 is a great horse but I'm just a little bothered by the fact that the trainer/owner is risking this horse to be claimed . . . why would you risk losing your horse to a claim if it so head and shoulders better than the conditions at which it is racing??? I don't get it . . .
I am on the 5 horse - Dove Express. I know this horse and dated h... [More]
