Mixed Bag

Filed Under Uncategorized 

There were a number of very close results over the past two days, with the photo finishes deciding seven of the 18 races. Trainer Cliff Sise was the beneficiary of two tight wins on Wednesday, narrowly prevailing with SOCIAL SATIRE (who had dead-heated for his maiden win) in the 3rd and DOUBLE MAJOR in the 7th. On the wrong end of a couple photos was trainer Julio Canani, who lost heartbreakers with BIG BERTHA on Wednesday and CIGAR PAL on Thursday, both turf sprints.

Eight different winning riders on Wednesday and again on Thursday. In fact, only Joe Talamo, Isaias Enriquez and Richard Migliore were able to win on back-to-back days…Thursday was Get Off the Schneid Day for jockeys Joel Rosario (his first ever win at HP) and Joy Scott, who won the nightcap aboard longshot THUNDERING RHYTHM ($44.20) for trainer Richard Bellasis. Trainer Ted West won just his second of the meet (from 25 starters) with first-timer NENE in the opener…Clinton Potts has been on a lot of live stock lately for hot trainer Jeff Mullins—these two combined to take the 5th with MISS JOSIEY WALES…betting owner John Liviakis scored again on Wednesday when his YOUNG THOMAS overcame a horrible start to graduate in a very slow juvenile event (2nd race). This guy kills his own price in the Win and Double pools but he’s crushed ‘em at this meet…BIG PICTURE ran off the sceen when winning the 5th by seven lengths. No claims on the suspicious class dropper, who looked plenty healthy here [Note: Just found out on June 23 that 'PICTURE had to be vanned off after the winner's cirlce picture...guess he didn't look so healthy after all].

You positively have to believe that some horses have a will to win, while others are pack animals with an aversion to winning. Exhibit A: DOUBLE MAJOR winning for the third time in seven starts and ONLY ONE WAY splitting horses and getting his seventh career win from 14 starts . Exhibit B: VICE ADMIRAL refusing to by in the stretch and finishing second for the seventh straight time and UNBRIDLED HARMONY doing everything in his power NOT to break his maiden, running his record to zero-for-20 (with 10 second- or third-place finishes). These trial maidens are always worth trying to beat…when they finally do graduate, who cares? They are always over-bet, and look at all the money you’ve saved in the long run.

Today’s Last Word comes from reader Penny B: “I agree with your June 18th comments. All the good races at HP, CD and Belmont were going off about the same time. Is anyone responsible for coordinating this? I was at DM Satellite, so I did at least get to watch everything. My youbet account does not carry Churchill Downs or Colonial Downs—both of which I wanted to bet on Saturday. Unless and until the various tracks and owners can work for the good of the sport and not themselves, they are losing a lot of money and shooting themselves in the foot.”

Amen, Penny.
