Races 7, 8 , 9    Dont forget to put your picks in


Race 7 -- #3 Shayna Baby ( 9-2 ) I remember this race because the outerflow was terrible and this  one got stuck in the rear. Dv Miller won the race with a bomb from the 10 hole but never left the wood and the seas parted in the stretch for him

Race 8 -- #6 Eagle Artisan ( 12-1 ) Average effort in two qualifiers against Golden Receiver and Show Me Up.... Sports a 50.3 mark at mohawk last season, he is in bottom C-2 condition, perhaps he has not been turned loose in the Q's.... Wife tooke the #4 Allamerican Chief ( 20-1) a professional qualifier who has not raced since 2011. but was sitting 2nd in his last qualifier where he was pacing in 1:24.4 to the likes of Special T Rocks, I may actually bet a couple of bucks on tonight if price is right.

Race 9 -- #3 Liborio ( 12-1)  After 2 month layoff, he gave average effort but that was against Helios..... This division of Super Bowl is not as deep as others.

Best Bet  --Race 2 #5 Windsun Galliano, wont pay ANYTHING but after pulling first over last week, sat outside and easily went in by lane.

you know that is another 1000% Correct !

the horse lingered around 5-2 for the longest time and then when they go around the first turn  --- the numbers flip up on the screen and he is 7-5 late......

Not saying Andy Miller was in on anything, but open window ? I know it sounds kind of conspiracy kinda thing.... but when I see the odds change radically -- they change radically downward ..... When do you see odds in the first turn on a horse go from 5-2 to 7-5 THAT BROKE OFF THE GATE ?

If management is suspicious of any wrong doing with the greek dance occuring AFTER the start, they have a PI on staff. Let him look into it. Let him check who's cashing big tickets and see if they have any connection to Andy and Julie Miller because this has happened to often. It is possible that Andy just has horrible hands too. I don't know.

How did MacDonald lose on Taxed? Watch all the drivers in the stretch and watch him, looks like he's having a seizure at the wire.

I know.
Doesn't look confident at all.
I was unhappy with how he handled the horse at the top of the lane.
Missed a decent price by a nostril.

Lots of players lost their horseshoes last night as two even money shots ran out.  Typical for a gullywasher Friday.

As usual, the website has lots of kinks in it at the beginning of the contest as the volume overwhelms them.  They made a lot of changes this year, so hopefully that won't increase the technical issues.

Meanwhile I picked three bomb-a-roonies tonight hoping to be put out of my misery early with a strong move to the top or a quick fade from the game.  But after last night's results, it might be a different game this year.

Where did you get that message?  I didn't receive it.

Even if you're right, it seems like the winners we hit count.  Let's hear it for Patrick Berry on Southern Sport.

I finally got the email some people had received hours earlier.

Unfortunate for those of us who had a decent weekend because a lot of players would have lost at least one horseshoe.  The good news is that the results count and the ELIMINATION ROUNDS begin on Thursday.

Next week the HORSE TOURNEY contests begin.

Looks like I found one nice longshot sleeper for next Saturday's swamp contest.  I'll see if I can motivate myself to get over there.
