    wonder if Governor's new order in CA will close down SA? I also understand that Ortiz Jr is refusing to race for the time being..

    SR Vegas Handycap-
    CHRB and Stronach group has worked with CA and Gov citing that SA and GG have 1000 on site employees(grooms , hot walkers, etc) that live at the track to care for the horses. Horses cannot stay in stalls 24/7 and need to be walked, jogged, and trained. In a sense , a unique ecosystem. Self contained. Racing will continue with only licensed personnel on track, no patrons or media. Additional health protocols are also in place to protect everyone. We shall see what happens in the future. Good luck!

    I’ve made some stupid bets lately .. so continuing the trend - instead of picking the gimme at SA today (#1,R7).. I’m going w #5 in R2 - using some of my profits from shorting the market in January! Bon chance!

    tough way to lose my P5 last night ... at SA deciding between #7 in R8 & Sadler FTS in R1 - #3 ... i'll likely go w Sadler trainee depending on scratches.

    That $20 M purse should ease some of the Derby DQ pain ... certainly will be uniquely remembered

    jericho911 I can say without hesitation that Maximum Security is every bit as good as California Chrome, the luckiest horse ever because he constantly dodged all the better horses. I remember laughing so hard when the connections said they wanted a piece of AP in the BC Classic. That would have been quite the laugh ! I think CC and Justify were both horses who are highly overrated, especially Justify and his fake triple crown since he cheated to get points to make the KY DERBY

    I think it’s really important to check out $ earned per start when imported from down under. Eleniark in race 8 has to show me he can handle mile track but scary because of Croghan/McCarthy connection

    my survival pick tonight = 10/1/1 .. need to stay alive (10 & 1) .. then a bomb.
    going w #6 in Race 8 at SA .. looks like a lock to me.

    My P5 tonight = 1,6/ 6/ 1,3,5,6,7/ 4,6,8/ 2,4
    Early P4 = 8,9,10/ 1,5,8/ 1,5/ 8,9
    Late p4 = 4,5,9/ 1,2,5,8/ 4,7/ 4,8
    & i really like the 13th SH5 = 4,8/ 4,8/ 1,7/ 1,3,7,9/ 1,2,3,7,9

    good luck everyone.

    I prefer to play Mohawk on Mondays - fits my handicapping style for some reason. Tonight looks tough, but this is what i'm going w:
    Race 1 Pick 5 = 1 / 1,6 /1,7,8 /3,5,7 /2,7,9
    Race 7 Pick 4 = 2,4,10 /3,6,8 /1,4,5/ 1,3
    Race 10 SH5 = 1,3/1,3 /6,7 /5,6,7 /2,5,6,7,8,9

    netsfan3 Got spooked by all the favorites in the first 5 races. Played the 1 to place. Payed $3 to place. The same thing it would have payed to win. Lost on BAUTISTA to many times before. Didn't thing he had a shot. Watching tv.

    I'm down to last horseshoe - so here goes: 3/9/5 .. hopefully Bell I No keeps me in it.
    Had tough decision at SA .. #3 in 2nd or #4 in 6th .. went with the #4.
    Also - in my opinion, easiest money today - Tampa Race 6 .. box 1,6,8,10 .. then used the 8,10 on top of the 1,6 with an all on bottom. .. disclaimer .. I used to own a piece of the 6.

    SR Vegas ... lol!
    See you around tdreamer.
    We seem to cross paths alot ! Continued success where ever you land
