I thought of creating a product when I had time to think about such things a few years ago. Still might one day but time presently is not on my side, though one never knows so we soldier on.
So now for something entirely different here. Instead of spending the time creatively writing, I panned the past performances in search of creative win bets or super-exotic fillers at an early line of 10-1 or better–one exception is 8-1.
So here are a handful of price shots, $2 win bets or Dime Super ticket fillers at Gulfstream Park, Oaklawn Park and Tampa Bay Downs. The goal is to find one play that makes the day–two would do even better:
Race 8: Mr Jaggers (12-1) [Bill Mott, Marcos Meneses]
Race 11: Prince of Arabia (10-1) [Patrick Biancone, Luca Panici]
Race 13: Cash Call Kitten (15-1) [Joe Orseno, Miguel Vasquez]
Race 9: Kershaw (20-1) [Phil D’Amato, Fernando De La Cruz]
Race 11: Flap Jack (20-1) [Jack Sisterson, Adam Beschizza]
Race 12: Hunka Burning Love (15-1) [Ingrid Mason, T J Thompson]
Tampa Bay Downs
Race 7: Burn the Boats (15-1) [Leon McKanas, Angel Suarez]
Race 9: Small Talk (8-1) [Kent Sweezey, Daniel Centeno]
So, Mr. Pricci, you are now abandoning possessed handicapping skills? I have never liked your boxing bets as they eat your bankroll far more than takeout. That you are betting to win with the selections above and not boxing bets is encouraging. Making Mr. Ed’s dime bets tarnishes your image reputation as a professional horse player IMO. Betting on ‘bombs’ instead of using handicapping skills is what novices and casual bettors do.
With respect to the title of this piece, what else is there?
