I hate to redboard, but there may be a learning opportunity here. I scored a heavy Win bet on Facts Matter in the last at Golden Gate on Sunday. He won and paid $15.20, a nice "get well" bet for me. To be honest, the reason I bet him was that I met the original owner at Angels Stadium in my season tickets section before his debut and he advised me this was a promising colt. This was back in 2017. I followed the horse for a while and maybe bet him lightly a few times, and then he descended into the claiming ranks, getting claimed a couple of times. I stopped tracking him but on Sunday he'd been off for quite a while after several claiming wins but then a miserable performance on the No Cal fair circuit. Sunday he was going first time synthetic with very competitive numbers on dirt previously, running off this layoff for a pretty successful trainer that had claimed him back. My score was blind luck because I remembered the horse from meeting his owner in a fleeting moment at an MLB game; but the pattern might be something to take note of?
