Labor Day Final Post for the Doghouse

Made a little money yesterday. Had 9 winners out of twelve on the Doghouse with 7 A horses, 5 on top. Got beat by D.Wayne Lukas (who wins about a race a month) for $3500 in the early Pick 5.

Last Doghouse Confidential posted today. Will be going after the late Pick 6 which will be totally distributed today. All handicapped for mud after scratches and changes.

Good luck!

Doghouse Posted for Sunday, September 1

Yesterday after the scratch of Vino Russo, I came to the conclusion that Provisional would win. Bet a $20 exacta with Yoshida who just missed for second. The story of the meet.

Posted a Doghouse for today. Still losing, but getting many winners in the A category.

Woodward Day Doghouse Posted

Been hitting Pick 5's and Pick 4's but no real money. Can't seem to catch the longshot.

Woodward seems wide open with a slight edge to Vino Rosso off a very fast work here. Anybody can win, though.

Doghouse Confidential Posted for Thursday, August 29

We hit the Travers safe bet for a minor profit and I hit my bet but lost given that Tacitus didn't win. Hated the blinkers and a questionable ride by Jose Ortiz, but Code of Honor ran great.

Here is the Doghouse for today. Finals week, been losing.

Doghouse Confidential Posted for Travers Late Pick 5

Just posted the Doghouse for races 7-11. Likely to be short price for the Pick 5 given some of the overwhelming favorites.

Travers 2019

The Travers has a full field this year. Not sure exactly why, but as usual, horses are coming from everywhere.

The horse to beat and the only horse I really like is 6 Tacitus. He is a hard luck horse that should have no excuses. Maybe the horse makes his own trouble. I don't like a change as in blinkers for a major race. However, I think he is long overdue.The winner.

7 Mucho Gusto has a major pace advantage in this field, so he will take off and want the lead. My numbers say he is just short of making the 10f, but if not challenged, he could get brave. 12 Tax will have to go from the outside. Tax did not make my numbers for the Kentucky Derby, but he does now as he has matured. I think Tax will have to go to the lead and will fight with 6 and others eventually fading. 2 Code of Honor has a great post, but I think he is just too slow. 1 Owendale is a mystery horse to me, coming off a big win and a layoff and working lights out at Churchill Downs. 10 Scars Are Cool is coming off a maiden win, but meets my numbers and could hit the exacta. Many of the other potential contenders came out of muddy, sealed track races, so it is impossible to predict how good or bad they are.

Safe bet: $2 exacta key box: 6/1-2-7-10

Here is my bet:

$50 win 6 at 2-1 or more (which I doubt).

$20 exacta: 6-7    $10 exacta: 6 over 1-2-10   $5 exacta: 1-2-7-10/6

Good luck!
