Calling All Swamis


You're kidding, right Mr. Secretary?

"1 Mile. OC 100000b Purse $71,000 (UP TO $13,490 NYSBFOA) FOR FOUR YEAR OLDS AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON THREE RACES OTHER THAN MAIDEN, CLAIMING, STARTER, OR STATE BRED OR WHICH HAVE NEVER WON FOUR RACES OR WHICH HAVE NOT WON A SWEEPSTAKE IN 2014 OR OPTIONAL CLAIMING PRICE OF $100,000."

And you want the rank and file, not the people who are as smart as you who can write conditions like these, to identify the most probable winner?

After taking a look, we're as confused as the conditions would hope that we would be. When confused, Handicapping 101 works best.

There's plenty of speed in here and one finisher with the best late kick. That closer is dropping out of a Grade 3 stakes. He's a two-time winner at the trip, and over the track, and Angel Arroyo, a strong finisher, is 3 for his last 12 for this barn through racing Monday.

We're taking Dawly, to win and place, no price restrictions.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1512

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 463-288-232

Amount Wagered: $3,024 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,152.00

Profit to Date: $128.00 {Thursday results not included}
