One of the worst meets I’ve had in quite a while. If this keeps up, we’re going to need an I.O.U. from the government, and we all know how that would go. I’ve said it before, though — if you have a long-shot system in place that’s worked for more than 20 years you don’t dump it because of one bad meet. Who knows, maybe it’s the synthetics. Or maybe it’s just a poor meet. Whatever, we still have a long way to go and we press onward.
Nice pick-six carryover today at Santa Anita, and here are a few horses that I think could make a difference. Of course, the way I’m going, you might be bettter served to draw a line through them:
Taxi Fleet and Salty Humor in the third, Morton Owen in the fourth I think is a good single, If Not for You is the chalk play in the fifth, Sarah’s Melody looks solid in the sixth, and Waddup G is a good price play in the seventh.
