Frog Comes Back Firing!
For Thursday, May 11, 2006We had a couple of near misses on Wednesday and we cashed in on just one of our plays. In the 1st race, our key Giza got caught inside and shook loose too late. That cost us a straight up bet and a Pick Three when Dotsies Place and Elegant Sis won the 2nd and 3rd. Hereshecomesagain won for us in the 6th and we put $92.80 in our pocket on our straight bet and a trifecta bet. Rated Well didn’t fire at all for us in the 7th and in the 10th we are all around the trifecta as all of our horses were there, but we only had Sand Tattler in the two and three hole. For the night, we wagered $180 and got a return of $92.80 Let’s get back on the winning track tonight.
Original Bankroll: $2,000
Total Wagered: $688
Total Return: $779.80
Current Bankroll: $2,091.80 (thru Wednesday, 5/10)
Thursday's Frog Plays:
Race Three: Joe Flowers has had some nice efforts at this level and figures to be a key player in this battle. Luckability drops a notch and is a second time lasix horse who can easily defeat this field given his current form. Let’s box these two in an exacta.
$10 Exacta Box – Joe Flowers (2) and Luckability (3). 2-3 3-2
Total Wager: $20
Race Six: Joy Of The Sport has been very consistent of late in this class and even in a notch above and figures to be a major player in here. Another consistent performer is Cold Swift and I believe his new connections will keep him going in the right direction. Marty Dot Com drops and shows enough form to make him a threat. We’ll box these three in an exacta play.
$5 Exacta Box – Joy Of The Sport (3), Marty Dot Com (7) and Cole Swift (8). 3-7-8 Box
Total Wager: $30
Race Eight: Falcatraz had no shot in his Sunday race here at Hawthorne in against tougher and sitting back on a slow half. From the rail, with this drop, this former free-for-aller simply looks to be in too sweet a spot to pass up tonight. We’ll make a straight win and place bet on him.
$20 Win & $20 Place on Falcatraz (1)
Total Wager: $40
Race Nine: Sporty Lola drops a notch off a fine effort last time out after the move to the bigger oval. Bambi’s Beauty gets post relief and is the most consistent mare in this bunch. I will box these two in an exacta for our last play of the evening.
$10 Exacta Box – Sporty Lola (1) and Bambi’s Beauty (3) 1-3 3-1
Total Wager: $20
TOTAL WAGERED: $110
