The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


One final chance who has inhabited our Horses to Watch list since December 2. Normally, it’s three strike and you’re out with these but he gets a mulligan because he third try was rescheduled from the turf to dirt and the gelded 4YO gets back on the lawn in today’s second race.

Georgia Pines (8-1) impressed us when he finished third best on the day. He lost too much ground launching his rally on the far turn, momentum carrying him even wider into the lane and despite swapping leads through the stretch he was going well at the finish with a solid gallop.

Today he returns at his proper level and is turning back to a suitably shorter trip. See what you think of that race on the Tampa Bay Today video, DEC 2, RACE 5. And note that Mike Allen is taking a return call.

We’re taking Georgia Pines to win at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Analyzeyourvision (5-1) and also-eligibles, if they break through, Swift Kid (3-1) and True Grace (4-1).

  1. Bitsnpieces: Wish I Knew What I Did not know at 24 What I Don’t Know Now about Horseracing! It would have saved me $$$ while trying fruitless ” angles” such as ” closing wide”, DD $ divided by Opening odds which led me to bet longshots who rarely saw the finish line without having had several horses ahead of them! ” Hot horse running again in less than so few days that he/ she was still in rare form,especially in claiming races. Even favs with leading trainer/jock combos did not result in many worthwhile bets because even when they won,about 35-40 % of the time,they’d pay peanuts even in their exactas with the second choices… Been commenting on Empire Casino race track,Yonkers, which ” calls back in” with their,asinine,decision to stop racing on Saturdays!! They must be afraid of sporting,betting competition on Saturdays( basket,hockey, wrestling (?),boxing,Ufc,,,maybe even rugby,soccer..) otherwise why would they think that Wednesday nights would bring more $ ?!?!?? Wasn’t that Spaghetti night and then Pizza night in most of New York state x several decades ? I know it was because we used to have a Wednesday pizza special like most other Suffolk county competitors. There’s no Specials on Saturdays. You killed another tradition which reminds me of my late father,nonni,grandparents who would watch it on WOR with Bernstein &Ross with OTB tickets on hand. No racing on Saturdays ? Can anyone see Any logic in this? So that more patrons will concentrate,ie,play more one armed bandits,roulette and 21 instead of betting on horses? Aren’t those Two different kinds of patrons,players,gamblers? When I went to AC,PA,Conn ,Delaware and others casino-racino places I rarely wasted a coin on those slots,tables. Same must apply to the patrons,usually older crowd,who come in directly,just like robots, to “their” favorite machine,table who would not care which horses are running where.No Races on Saturdays ?? It Cannot be Good news for most people in the industry..No Way !!
