I dont play these kind of races ever but the best strategy is if they bridgejump arrogate bet one other horse to show... otherwise pass the race.

She wins, and the longest shot on the board finishes 2nd.

oh by the way, just watching the races again tonight, noticed something quite unusual about the 5 I hadn't noticed Monday night. Nocturnal Q, didn't have a lead pony. The jockey rode his horse out cool calm and collected. That's impressive she didn't need a lead pony. She was ridden by Kevin Gonzalez, not Erik Barbaran, since Barbaran was injured in the paddock.

... its all too confusing to me.




if you take a little time to absorb it all you might find it more enjoyable then other forms of gambling. there's plenty of introductory info on the web and in books.

When the Pegasus was going on, I tried thinking about every excuse to bet against arrogate, but finally had to just admit he was that good. Now after the last race, I immediately wanted to assume betting opportunity coming up. I think the connections have lost confidence in Arrogate. I concur the other two are better betting options. Have not really looked into the field too much, can't say too much besides Arrogate is a big risk. I think Ill probably not bet.

There is something that bothers me I saw on TVG. During the post show, the announcer clearly pointed out Mike Smith did not seem happy, clearly bothered about drawing the 8 post. A day later, Brittany Eurton starts an interview with Mike Smith, that was apparently taped right after the draw show, and she asserts emphatically Mike Smith was not bothered by the draw. They're using Arrogate to pump up bets on him.

Right now I'm leaning against Arrogate, still deliberating. The distance has to be considered. Arrogate might be able to gear up, depends if he wants to run.

arrogate quit the last race. so the question is why did he quit? to me the most logical answer is he has lost his enthusiasm for racing.

Mohawk soon to be year round Standardbreds. Perhaps Jody, who finished 3rd in that race, was actually trying to win. Such behavior is usually frowned upon in harness racing.
In the more dignified Thoroughbred racing, a whip is used. There are jockeys who are so proficient at whipping that a horse will not eat for 3 days afterwards.

Thanks Coilman.

80% of show money on #1 horse at Charles Town - Race 5. 8 horses. I did not bet against, but if I had money in my ADW, I would bet $2 on all other to show here.
