manitoba derby. these are some disappointing horses.  8/5 favorite got claimed from Baffert. Some big prices on the board and nobody is impressive, so we key box the only horse with talent and hope.  key box #3

Boys trip to Del Mar starting Thursday! Can't wait. Check in at Del Mar Hilton. 15 guys.  Have owners boxes + clubhouse seats each day.  Thursday track, dinner at Pamplemousse.  Friday am golf at La Costa, track - dinner at Poseiden on the beach in La Jolla.  Saturday pool time while we play Saratoga, track, dinner at Red Tractons.  Cocktails galore.  Derelict weekend of the highest order.  Now just need some winners!

sounds great!  we have a tradition that you can only go to Red Tracton's with winnings, so it's not a sure thing,  but all the better when you get to go.  Poseidon is a little closer than you think...it's in Del Mar north of Tres Palms.

i was gonna take a stab at that guaranteed 1m pick5 they were running ... got my feed up on the big screen in time for first race - which saw sprinters labor to a :26 opening qtr :lol:

look, green money is green money, even if it's highly suspect Canadian bacon ... but i lost interest rather quickly. 

was more entertained by my neighbor's #### ZOO yapping and howling and yelping like somebody shoved a red hot poker up it's precious ####.

Colonial Downs - Early P4

coming back to this circuit, loving another single in this sequence, and liking my shot at upending the chalk in the 3rd leg, but covered on his back. 

*starts in race #2*

1,2,5,7/6/2,6/2,3,4,5

.50 = $16

the single in the 2nd leg is the best bet of the day - dropping in among a field made up of mostly first timers (the sires up in there include Curlin, Hard Spun, Palace Malice ... babies, tho). 

but i'll take a big plunge on that #6 Tejano Twist, parachuting in here after spending the spring running in much higher class in Kentucky (both Keeneland & Churchill).

50k tag here is a drop he can sure as hell handle, barn is hitting at a very handsome roi for this condition - should make easy work of this crew. 

:deadhorse:

#1 brings home first leg after the longest foto inquiry i can remember :unsure:

just announced jock change on my beloved #6 single for the next leg - still gonna empty a nice load on the animal - he's the clear class of that field. 

no word on why the switch went down. 

:popcorn:

ETA: #6 getting slammed down at the winderrs

#6 did his job, doubled my bankroll handsomely :thumbup: was 2nd choice 5/2 on the ml, got hammered down to even, hence the double up. 

my 2 choices for the 3rd leg both scratched, so i was bequeathed the 6/5 chalk #8 as conso ... he was nipped at the wire by 30/1 #7 ... i knew that 8 was a mule, it's why i left it off :lol:

Since you were goofing around with this and I'm stuck in a meeting all day, I bet a $12 trifecta in the 6th that hit for $249.90

 

 

... if that 6 held on it would've been huge(r).

really hoping to pull this 5 or 8 in here in first leg ... TG on the 8 is taking action, banging his odds down from 10/1 ml - Santana up for Assmussen on the 11/1 #5

gonna exacta box em with the #4, see if we can beat that #7 chalkie

Colonial:

R1

The favorite here has 1 win in 40 lifetime starts, which should tell you something about this field.    This horse should never be 5/2 and is totally beatable, so I'm going with the 1, Circle Away, which at least knows the direction to the winner's circle and is opening at 13-1.    

 

 

.50 pick 4 races 2-5 ($18):

R2  3

R3  3,5,8

R4  2,9,10

R5  4,11,12,14

yeah, i'll take it in my p5, but gonna need some prices to hit here, seeing as how i'm on the chalk in 5th leg. 

that 4 needed another furlong ... maybe they stretch out next time.

right idea on challenging that fave here ... but that winner, #3, has burned a tin of money, in piss poor outings - would not have landed on him, glad i sat this one out.

3 brings the 2nd leg home - this was a 5.5f spinach sprint, and this beast did a 21.3 opening qtr ... and still had enough to draw away comfortably - ridic 🤘

that's 2 chalky legs in the bank, and i have the (anticipated) fave in 5th leg ... got #1 and #4 coming up in next race - gotta get that 1 in to juice that will pay - but if it's the 4 that keeps me alive, so be it :shrug:

ETA: JFC did they hammer the 4 - c'mon #1

If you didn't bet that, you're not worth the weight of the salt you're throwing over your shoulder every race.

God, I cannot listen to him for musical enjoyment. For lyrical brilliance, maybe. But damn, that voice...

At Colonial 4 is a late scratch so I get another ticket on the 11, which is bet down to 3/5.

ok ... i thought it was my book ####### things up - wouldn't be first time 🙃 

with the late scratch at colonial, the only way I make any money is the 12.  Barely better than break even on 11 or 14.
