GL, FB. i'm only playing the 6th (i love turf sprints) and the oaks today.

in the 6th, the last 2 races for the 2 have been a lot faster than anyone else in the field. only concerns... this is the time of year her season ended the last 2 years, so she may not have anything left. and she's a speed horse on a yielding turf course. not ideal. i also doubt we're gonna get 7-2 on her.

i have the 5,6.7,9 under.

I'm singling Ova in P3
2 w 1,3,5,9 w 2,4,5,6
nice. a few factors worked against her... don't think she loved the soft turf... didn't break great... had a lot of pressure early... but she was so much better than that field.

Wow, the japanese horse!
just went back and watched it. not bad at 27-1. i wasn't going to use TO Password tomorrow, but just added a note that I may need to include him underneath.

spent all afternoon getting the house ready for our annual derby party. still plenty of work to do. the joys of hosting.

anyway, for the oaks...

i'm using the 5 & 11 on top, but with mcpeek's horses not running great so far this week, i'm going to focus a little more on the 11. kinda wish the 15 didn't make it in, because i'm not sure how much to use her. definitely underneath, but maybe a little on top, too.

my next group, i have the 6 & 8, and i'm going to use the 4 under a little, too. i'm nervous they plan to use her as a rabbit for the 11, but maybe she'll hold on for a piece.

oh, i also think the 2 is a few lengths too slow, but i had a note to use her underneath if it's muddy. so, yeah.

well, sometimes when you try to beat the fav, they sneak in there and fuck you. oh well, on to tomorrow. probably just playing the 5th (turf sprint!) along with the turf classic and the derby.
