Once in awhile, we get things right along with some luck.
We hit our safe bet paying $39 exacta for a $24 bet (nobody will get rich); but a winner is a winner.
I had the exacta a few times and the triple which paid $216. Made $150 on the race.
Our analysis of the pace of the race was right on, and we expected a good effort from Mine That Bird which we received. Musket Man ran very well and could have been second but for traffic trouble. Rachel Alexandra showed how good she is, running a tough pace race and holding on to win.
Now we need to follow up with another payday in the Belmont.
