How do they race today???
Strong winds, several inches of rain.
Mandatory pick 6 payout.
No turf races, track was sealed last night--should be like asphalt.
Hate to buy sheets and handicap if the card gets cancelled--anyone have any insight?
On an unrelated note, how do we take Baffert's current funk? He's winning about 5 from about 40 entries. I remember a few years ago he went through a similar stage where he even had a few horses drop dead, quite literally. He still won the triple drown that year though. Does the funk not apply to his big guns? Should I not even think about this and just read the sheet as per normal handicapping? Yesterday I actually tossed Solomini in horizontals, he was like 3-5 or something. Going to feel stupid when/if his big guns air today in the slop today. If I don't have any info. and a very small sample size, it could just be nothing much really. Still you only make $ in racing if you seize the trend before everybody else catches on. Am I making much ado about nothing much???
