Exactly Correct My dear friend.... Look at the start right before she was claimed by Darcy... Yet another time she coulda ran around the track 50 more times and no one woulda come close 2 her!!
Then Darcy takes her, and she staggers through the stretch off of a slow half.....she is then reclaimed by Pufahl gets beat two weeks in a row (one time without Oosting!!) and then its down the road again last nite with Hiteman looking as though he was nearly unbeatable in that race...I am not the biggest Dale fan, but that was not a "stiff job" by any means... he sat in the 2hole and simply was not good enough.. period!
Maybe Oosting had the "stuff" in last week, maybe he didn't use enough, maybe he had nothing in at all!! All I am saying is that that mare has beat Pacitti's Mare before and Oosting knows that... And with nothing else in the race, Oosting is definitely smart enough to take advantage of the fact that Hiteman was definitely going 2 be the overwhelming favorite!! $10 is an awfully nice price on a horse that had very little chance of being beat last nite.. and there is no doubt in my mind that Oosting got a nice piece of that Exacta, and the win bet..
