Why even bother to handicap?
« on: April 25, 2018, 10:33:41 pm »

It's that time of year again. Just look for the horse that made its last start at Oaklawn Park.

Case in point -- Hawthorne's 8th race on Wednesday won by Way too Smarte, last race in Hot Springs on March 3. Paid $177.80 to win at Hawthorne. No, I didn't accidentally hit the '7' key twice. He didn't pay $17.80. He paid $177.80 to win, $33.40 to place and $14.60 to show.

And, no, I didn't have it. Wasn't playing today.

I was looking at results tonight and saw that as well. OP horses are doing good at Indiana too

I may look at tomorrows cards around the country. I may take a shot with a few $10 -20 win tickets if I see some nice odds on Oaklawn horses.  And once Churchill opens there will be a lot running there.

Secret Passage last ran at Oaklawn on April 11 and won a NW2x alw/OC at 20-1. Diodoro had him in that day for a $50,000 tag.

Unraced since then, Diodoro runs him in a similar spot in Belmont Park's 7th race on Friday. He could have been claimed for $62,500.

Rallied under David Cohen as the 2nd-longest of 10 betting interests to nail down the win inside the sixteenth pole.

Paid $84.50, $28.60 and $15.20 across.

Sometimes they make this game too easy.

every year    the 6 weeks after the close of OP can be very profitable

putting a time limit on this angle is very smart...usually a horse will win his first off of a move but won't win the second...it's sorta like they begin to run to the level of the horses at the new race track...catch a horse that ran well, say 2nd or a good 3rd in his last race at OP and then ships to Hawthorne and is moved up in class...'like a duck on a june bug' I'm all over that one

She won't be a long price, but Unbridled Mo is 4-1 on the morning line in Saturday's Ogden Phipps (3rd race) at Belmont Park off her win in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom.  The favorite, Abel Tasman, is winless in her last three starts.
