I always appreciate your contributions, yet to pick against Ben's Cat took some you know what! The old champ still has it!

What a horse Ben's Cat is. When Trevor steered him to a clear lane he went to the whip and Ben's Cat just took off. Beautiful. Good to see King Leatherbury doing well, great trainer.

Well said, Sammy. I made my blunder of the day...had my pick 4 ready to go with Ben's Cat as my single. I decided to simply watch the Cat run and pulled back the bet for who knows why. Anyway, I would have won the pick 4. Oh well. At least I saw a horse for the ages win! And to make the day end well, I did well on my other bets!

7/9/16....lot's of stakes action....and some "iffy" chalk in my book....at 2/1 or less m/l...

Belmont.
6th...#9 Coppa...could be any kind...will bet against here...Jock's lone mount...flying in...think will get hooked by inside horse...

10th..#12..Catch a glimpse...lone speed at a distance always dangerous...however several here have been very close at shorter...now in their wheelhouse+++Euro's are here W/the drug L...let 'em beat me at the expected price...

11th...#2..private zone...long lay-off...always let these type beat me if they can

Arlington

8th...#11...J.R. Holiday...outside...plenty here close enough...if was that good...would be in a bigger money race...

2-2 on the call-out's...the 2 that won...very nice horses...indeed...10-9 now...not all that great...

several coulda/woulda/shoulda called out today...but didn't...so don't count...but Pizza Man, Firing Line, Economic model....all...didn't run that good...

If one knew in advance...that's a BIG step...

Thinking a few knew today that PZ wouldn't fire...those pay-offs were light...

Insider's game...and I'm trying to read between the lines...last year was pretty good...this year...not so much...

always another race tho...

Saratoga

9th..My Man Sam 4/5 ml #4...hhhmmmm betting against my namesake in a short field...

Delmar
9th..Cal. Chrome 4/5 ml #6...maybe I will, maybe I won't...that's trainer Sherman's words...

If you've followed along over last years very good year and this year's blah so far...you will have noticed that I've pretty much stuck to the bigger paying races...

In all honesty...the cheaper races....big chalk is more suspect at times...at least in my book...many here will disagree...which is ok...I like their money!!!

am thinking about posting on 7/28...ie....thurs...strictly "Toga"....a chalk or two I don't like....any interest out there?

Yes...this is an ego stroke...since I only play on BIG days...still...always good to try and keep a mind sharp....and perhaps somebody else can score...

Besides...as I stated....this year blah....need to pad my stats....

Sar Race 3 today.
Looking to beat the chalk #8 Benevolence but he doesn't meet the 2-1 odds criteria, at least not yet.
Price is 5-2 with 2 MTP
