Awfully Tempting


Split divisions of starters' handicap turf features at Tampa today and we'll opt for the first, the 4th race, which offers an opportunity for value.

Awfully Sinful (8-1) did her best running too late in her recent course return, getting up for place while never threatening the winner, but galloped out strongly thereafter. Never fails to fire a late shot but meets tougher here, which should help ensure fair odds.

Taking Awfully Sinful to win at early line odds or greater, and boxing exactas with faster, pole-sitting Arabian Queen (7-2) and recent claim/course-loving Ballinskeligs (3-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 2213

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 671-435

Amount Wagered: $4,426.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,514.90

Exacta Finishes All Win Selections since 2007: 50%

Profit to Date: $88.90

Tote Busters delivered last Saturday at Gulfstream Park when a $30 ticket produced a 50-Cent Late Pick 4 returning $654.55. As a result of a typo, subscribers only needed a $15 investment to produce the win.

[One ****4-Star horse was erroneously omitted from the 9th race, a point thankfully becoming moot when Bellavais (10-1), the ‘only’ ****Star runner indicated, won at a well-meant $10.40.

As instructed in the Legend, when two ****horses appear in a race, bettors must use both horses to the exclusion of all others. When one ****horse appears, that horse must be used along with all ***3-Star runners listed].

On Saturday Jan. 7, 2017, the number of top star-rated horses indicated a 3x1x2x5 sequence [$15 @ 50-Cents]. It should have cost $30. On Sunday morning, no subscribers complained! Nevertheless, all monthly subscribers will receive one extra week free of charge.

No FRA today, writing column, but did go 2-for-2 yesterday--about time!

Below is an analytical look of the top four horses in post position order for Saturday's eighth race Late Pick 4 opener from Gulfstream Park.

More information and a complete report is available at http://www.johnpricci.com


1 – STAR MAVEN (15-1) Pricci Energy Rating: NA [First-time Starter]
Newcomer is bred for turf both sides but barn not known for wining-debut types on turf. Dam’s four winners from seven starters all won on grass.

2 – ***TAPERGE (8-1) PER: 54
Trailed throughout debut buried deep inside after breaking from pole position. Of dam’s five winners, two won on grass, also foaled one stakes winner. Chad Brown 27% efficient with this spacing and profitable 25% adding blinkers. Javier re-rides.

3 – ****BOGULATOR (2-1) PER: 73
Has run very well finishing second in all four lifetime starts under disparate conditions—impressive for a young horse. Of dam’s seven winners, five won on turf. Looks versatile so switch to Paco from inside helps cause significantly.

4 – **ELUDE (20-1) PER: FTS
Should benefit from one-paced sprint debut after showing greenness at gate and breaking from the pole. Albertrani, live this meet, is profitable with this spacing and turf-debut types. First Lasix and switches to low profile rider who finished on the board in lone try for barn. Dam’s had two winners from four starters, both won on turf.
