Play of the day …

What I’d like to do here is play one race a day that I feel I have found a solid horse that figures to run well. No parameters regarding track, odds, surface, class, etc. I’ll keep a rolling bankroll for all to see how I fare. The play will be to win. We will start the bankroll at $1000 and see how fast I can drive myself broke. I won’t just throw out picks, I’ll try to break the race down best I can and the following day will tally up the results and go back and review the previous days play. Maybe we will all learn something and I would enjoy some feedback on my picks and your thoughts on that race.

 For today ( 1-15 – 08 ) – Tampa Bay Downs – Race 9 – 5F Turf AlwN1x

These turf sprint always end up to be good betting races and this one looks no different. Looks to me like atleast 4 horses have a very legit chance. The morning line favorite and 2nd choice have the same running style and I feel that they will compromise each other early battling for the lead. This course seems to be favoring speed lately but these two are breaking right next to one another and I just feel the duel will atleast give someone from behind a chance.

 My play of the day is #4 Mr Guska. 7/2 3rd choice on the morning line makes his 3rd start off a lay off for a trainer who is doing well enough at the meet. Horse has two useful works since his last start, which he won to break his maiden over the Tampa main track. He has shown that he can turf sprint before and should be making a run late.

 The play: $50 to win on #4 Mr Guska.

Good luck.

    Well I’m not sure if this is a good omen or a bad one, but I do know things can only get worse from here as our “Play of the Day” for today, Jan. 15 won like a good thing at what I feel an underlayed 3-1.

    When the gates broke I thought our play was in trouble, as he broke dead last but quickly gained some position. The speed duel I envisioned didn’t materialize, the #8 was never in contention and the #9 made the lead pretty easily, albeit setting a quick pace. On the turn I still didn’t think Mr. Guska had a chance, being forced to rally wide but about mid-stretch it was apparent that he atleast was going to make a race of it, and make a race of it he did, running by late and winning by 3/4 of a length.

    Mr Guska went off at 3-1 on the button turning our $50 win wager into $200 dollars. Good to start in the positive, we’ll see if we can keep it going.
