Frog Dooley, Saturday, May 6
For Saturday, May 6, 2006
Itís another exciting harness season at Hawthorne and that means, of course, another season of cashing winning tickets with Frog Dooley, Chicagoís Number†One harness handicapper. For the past 14 seasons, Frog Dooley has given Chicago harness fans documented, winning selections and in 12 of those years, the Frog has turned a profit for his loyal followers.
The main difference between the Frog and all of the other fine Chicago harness handicappers is that, ďthe Frog puts his money where his mouth isĒ!† For the past three seasons and previous to that in Midwest Harness Horse magazine, Frog has documented his selections and wagers for all to see and over that time Frog has averaged a profit of over $1,150 a year.
Once again, Frog will start out with a mythical bankroll of $2,000. His daily wagers will be presented in this column and his bankroll will be updated in each program. Can the Frog continue his amazing streak and keep his loyal followers in the plus column?
Itís great to be back at Hawthorne, Chicago finest harness racing facility. Letís enjoy the time we have here because itís only six weeks and it will go by very fast. Historically at Hawthorne, for the first few days of the meet, the front end usually holds up very well, so we should concentrate on horses that will be fairly close to at the top of the lane. Letís dive right in, the water is great!
ORIGINAL BANKROLL:† $2,000
Race One:†† Street Dancer has dominated the 3-year-old Illinois Bred pacing filly ranks this

Letís key her in a few wagers.

Race Four:† Cheyenne Bodie has the credentials to become a future Illinois Bred Open star. After a four month layoff the Tim Wilson Jr trainee has come back very sharp in his first two starts of the year and this winner of over $175,000 lifetime should have his way with this field.

Race Five:† Trainer Robin Schadt has Odds On B P on top of his game. After a nice victory at Balmoral on April 15th, this Life Sign gelding ran a very creditable 4th in the top condition class at Maywood six days later and this field looks to be a little softer.
