Cancelled wagers, incorrect transmission, bad bets = a Sunday shutout for our friendly neighborhood Frog.......
The race track was true to all styles on Sunday night as no one strategy proved more effective than any other. It is interesting to note that as we enter the final ten days of the meet, the racing itself has been great due to the fairness of the surface. We have seen all types of winners and credit has to go out to Greg Cardenas and his crew for maintaining the fine surface on the track.
As for the Frog, it wasn’t a very good night. Our initial wager on the card was cancelled when it was transmitted incorrectly to the print shop. It was listed under the wrong race and was chopped off before the entire wager was explained and completed. In race five. Fluff O Macktic won for us, but we missed our trifecta play, In race eight, our exacta pick of Sightings and Madura finished 2-3. Our last wager saw Fox Valley Octavia win for us, but we failed to hit our wager when Funny Place made a break and Tlcasap hung in the lane. For the evening we wagered $74, and got shutout. Let’s really fire some big cash into tonight’s card.

Race Six: Buddha Baby was raced conservatively in his first start of the year. With the start under his belt he should be ready for a top effort.
