An Apology and a Saver…


Taking advantage of a dark day to catch up with the HRI Faithful.

We share a server with five other sports sites. For four days, all were taken off line because of a programming error did not allow us access the backend of the sites to post our content. Hopefully, the issues has been resolved permanently. Alas, we shall see.

Meanwhile, should this ever happen again, let me direct you to

There you will find the Feature Race Analysis and any columns that normally appear on a publishing schedule in which Tom Jicha, Mark Berner and myself post commentary on a regular basis, plus an occasional offering from independent fan/player, Indulto.

There are no words to express my thankfulness for your continued, loyal support. Our readers, horseplayers, and racing fans are our constituency. We effort to help make the game better for all of us. We've been at this since 2007 and remain passionate and hopeful for the future.

Thoroughbred racing is a way of life and the reason we exist. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this labor of love!

Bustin Out of the Gate in the Morrissey

Today's state-bred feature, the John B Morrissey for older sprinters going 6-1/2 furlongs. is a real head scratcher. And while there is plenty of heat up front, we're taking a 5YO horse who is razor sharp, might be the speed of the speed, fairly weighted, and apparent that trainer Robert Falcone Jr. has his hole card.

Second in his lone Spa start, Bustin It (8-1) is a two-time winner at this hybrid distance, and a repeat of his last effort over weaker set would give him more than a solid chance to handle today's class rise.

Taking Bustin It to win at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with track lover Weekend Hideaway (7-2) and turnback Eye Luv Lulu (15-1), freshened and reuniting with winning rider Irad Ortiz.

Hoping to Get Lucky in Honorable Miss

Wednesday's feature is the G2 Honorable Miss for older filly and mare sprinters has drawn the proverbial small but select field, and we think value is available.

On form, invading Finley'sluckycharm (7-2) has the best from at the trip. In fact, in five starts, three as a newly matured 4YO, she has yet to suffer defeat.

She looms the potential controlling speed, gets a few pounds from her major rivals, and is nicely drawn outside in a compact field.

Taking Finley'sluckycharm to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with 2017 dual G1-winning Paulassilverlining (6-5).
