Retraction

Filed Under Uncategorized 

In yesterday’s Blog post, I said that the stewards’ disqualification of CONVEYOR’S ANGEL denied a three-day Pick Six carryover. Wrong. Jack Disney of the publicity department got a phone call from a guy in New York claiming that he had used ‘ANGEL and would have been the holder of the only winning ticket. You know how New Yorkers are. Well, after checking it out with the mutuel department, turns out the guy was telling the truth. He was the lone ticket alive to ‘ANGEL while also having DQ “winner” SINGALONG, making him one of six winners for $400,00 instead of a very rich single-ticket holder for $2.4 million. Quite a difference, although they won’t have to take up a collection for the guy any time soon. By the way, his ticket was one of three coming through the infamous Lewiston, Maine hub (you remember the Breeders’ Cup Pick Six scandal of ’02).

Reportedly, one of the winning tickets was a $16 sheet purchased at Del Mar’s Surfside Race Place. I’m scheduled to do a free handicapping seminar there on Saturday (10:45 a.m. in the upstairs Tack Room) but if true, this person should be doing the seminar and I’ll take notes from the audience.

By the way, there is yet another carryover (over $100,000) into Friday’s card. This one is the 10th of the meet after five double digit winners (including $60 debut winner CAPT. SPARROW in the 4th) in the P6 sequence. It’s become exceedingly difficult to pick a winner out here right now. Favorites are hitting at about 29%, with public handicappers (like this one) struggling to get more than one or two a day.

Steve Knapp and Jon Court teamed up for two winners on the card as Knapp has quietly moved up the trainer standings. He now has six wins at the meet, five more than Richard Mandella, who finally got off the schneid today with maiden breaker FABULOUS SUN.

They absolutely crawled down the hill in the 7th as front runners PURE AMERICAN and I’LL PREY FOR YOU battled it out on the front end. I don’t recall ever seeing as slow an opening quarter as :23 coming down the dip.

Noble Threewitt will saddle the final horse of his 73-year CAREER tomorrow when THREEATONCE goes in the 5th.

Word is that REVVED UP is not coming out for trainer Christophe Clement. He looked like the main danger to LAVA MAN in the Sunshine Millions Turf on Saturday.
