Talent Over Conditioning in Gulf Feature

Today's Gulfstream feature is really a Grade 2 or 3, masquerading as a NW3 turf allowances.

The one mile two turner marks the return of Frostmourne (2-1), an exciting graded winner last year at 3 and returning here with four-year-old maturity for Christophe Clement, who gets them ready!

We're not expecting a prime time performance, but if we're correct about his upside, he would still get his job done.

Taking Frostmourne to win, boxing an exacta with sharp and dangerous rival, Profiteer (5-2).


Number of Selections since 2007: 2466

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 734-492

Amount Wagered: $4,932 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,976.30

Boxing Casse on Gulfstream Turf

In today's turf feature at Gulfstream, Mark Casse appears to have himself to beat in the two turn allowances.

He will saddle both favorites; Bletchley (2-1) and Magical Sky (5-2). The latter has recency ad the benefit of a sharp winning race over the course.

But in Bletchley, Casse has a classy Euro import that was prepared at his Ocala farm and continued working strongly when moved to the Palm Meadows training center.

Julien, Tepin's rider, has the mount on 'Sky', but you don't name Johnny V. if you're planning to give him a run.

Taking Bletchley to win, an exacta box with Magical Sky, adding price shot Pat M's Image (8-1) to the exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2465

FYI for Dedicated Horseplayers

You have only our word on this: Our ToteBusters2Watch© have provided consistent profits since 1979. The methodology is simple and automatic, no handicapping necessary unless you want to:

Play a Tote Busters© Horse2Watch regardless of race conditions, class, surface—whatever--in its next three starts or until it wins. Discard after a win or three consecutive losses. That’s it and that’s all!

We watch the races and do all the advance preparation so you don’t have to.

If a subscriber wishes to follow a horse further, it’s their choice. We can only advise a methodology that we know has worked consistently since the year Spectacular Bid won the Kentucky Derby.

Races we highlight are stakes, allowances, and high class maiden-allowances with emphasis on grass racing because of field size and trips. Good or bad, trips dominate results.

Some weeks, you might receive two or three Tote Busters2Watch©, or none at all. Or you might get five in one day, as was the case Saturday, March 10, 2018.

We e-mail all ToteBusters2Watch© personally to subscribers. Often they arrive two or three days in advance of race day.

We wager on these horses blindly, religiously; giving horsemen three opportunities to choose the proper spot or the horse to prove itself. If it doesn’t win after an eye-catching performance within three starts, that’s our bad, no one else’s.

Five ToteBusters2Watch from Tote Busters© Mailing for Saturday, March 10:

Forty Kilos, GP, Race 2: OUT 19-1

Cosmic Burst, OP, Honeybee: WON $10.80

Sister Sunday, TAM, Race 3: WON $18.20

Gidu, TAM, Columbia: WON $3.20

Andina Del Sur,
TAM, Florida Oaks: WON $28.20

Prior to Saturday, we were 0-for-4 in March; one horse finishing third. And we had one winner ($2.80) and one off-the-board TB2W in the last week of February.

The March 10 results were HIGHLY ATYPICAL! But sometimes everything works. Your horse moves up in class but fits the race shape, or you get a great ride. It happens, or not…

Several subscribers were good enough to send us private emails:

“As I've said repeatedly, thank you for all the work that goes into crafting your picks and those lists of horses to watch. When they do well, just that much more fun!!”
Steve A.--New York

“Good info, thanks John!!”
James R.--Louisiana

“Pretty damn good picking, great job today. Thank you.”
Ron P.--Florida
