Something Old, Something New


We'll do things a little differently, see if you like the approach and let us know.

We will make two picks in each of the the Big 3 preps: the Most Probable Winner (MPW) and Best Value (BV). Also, how we would bet if the early odds were also the closing price, a.k.a. The Bet.

For the record, we will use the Most Probable Winner in the Running Totals.

Baltas Filly Not Lost On Us


Taking a rare cross-country jaunt to Santa Anita where a good-sized turf feature awaits, and it appears that the carefully managed Lostintranzlation (7-2) has this group in her sights.

Richard Baltas has spaced her races beautifully. This looks like a great spot and she'll be ready for it, given her 5th fastest half-mile in 47 3/5 the week of MAR 30. She fits the profile and is nicely posted.

Taking Lostintranzlation to win and an exacta box with My Aunt Tillie (4-1), a wide, too-late runnerup in her latest.
