Power cap- existential handicapping

Play Of The Day

Today is the first day of the second full year of Powercap. It has been a full year since we started publishing our thoughts, power plays and semi-offensive rants for the racing world to enjoy.

Today we have a play of the day as we begin the climb back towards profitability.

Aqueduct Race 3

Class looms large in these low level lightly raced claiming races and class is one of my trusty angles. #5 Dakota Bob finds himself one of two open company horses in a field of NY breds. In addition he is the only multiple winner in the field and is not the morning line favorite. I think the morning line of 7-2 is a very real possibility and if we can get 3-1 that is a gift. Dakota Bob should be well rested after a win at Meadowlands and the low profile connections will work towards ensuring a fair price. Dakota Bob makes it three wins while everyone else in the race remains at one.

The Troll is back--but on a different angle--I actually like your viewpoint of this race and agree with you--lets see what happens.

Thanks for coming back troll, you are not complete as a blogger until you have acquired some haters, without you I would be nothing. Dakota Bob ran his race and checked in second, as you would say, another loser pick. The winner was eased last out but just ran a huge race to win at a price.
