    We had planned to go to the track today but those plans were called off due to lack of interest (translation: We're both really tired after tough weeks at work) so we're just sitting at home watching the races today.

    Just watched the Hambeltonian qualifiers which featured to hoses getting their bike wheels locked together which I've never seen before. Both were disqualified and a horse that broke stride at the top of the stretch pulled it back together and got placed 5th to move forward to the final. Crazy race.

    With two turf Stakes cancelled today because of the rain overnight at Saratoga it's kind of a reduced card anyway.

    So horse watching today was a fail. Right before the Whitney we had a power outage due to the rain in our area. Just came back on.

    I hope it dries up soon up here in Saratoga. Taking races off the turf has ruined a few really good cards. Weather is looking better this coming week.....

    Hope the weather clears up for you! I was in Saratoga this upcoming weekend last year and the weather was beautiful.

    It's been 3 weeks into the Saratoga meet and I have not cashed one ticket ! Granted, I mostly bet difficult to cash pick 4 's but I do throw in place bets to try to recoup some of my losses. I hit the late pick 3 at DelMar Sunday for a nice 683 buck score. I needed that as it's been a tough year. Saturday at Saratoga in the second race Southern Phantom is scheduled to run. If you haven't heard of him he's worth a Google. He's a horse with unique markings, a brown colt with a completely white face and one brown and one blue eye.

    Love Southern Phantom. Cool looking horse.

    Agreed on the Spa meet, has been brutal. I'm also a Pick 4 player. I've hit exactly one this year, for the Whitney, but it only paid $48 and change on a $24 bet. I hit a Pick 3 that basically doubled my money but I always seem to be including the wrong long shots, or betting against the wrong favorites.

    Taking some time off this weekend, will probably just watch. With Vegas coming up I've got a Million things to do that don't involve hauling my ass over the SHRP to make bets.

    Good luck to everyone though!

    Taking a long, hard look at the two Baffert runners in this Saturday's Pacific Classic.

    I get Accelerate is the horse to beat, but since he's likely to go off at 1/5 I can't see any scenario where I back him for the win. Sure, he'll play heavy in my exotics but for the win I'm thinking either Dr. Dorr or Roman Rosso. Also considering Beach View as a long shot play based on his last win alone.
