Criminal Play Of The Day

Belmont race 8
8-1 on Plenty Coups at Belmont is a complete steal. Plenty Coup is poised to steal this race wire to wire. With a lone speed set up, the inside post and the 9F speed favoring inner track set up, this one will be lone gone when the real running starts. If the 8-1 price holds expect a visit from the cops later as that price is an absolute steal.

Win #1 Plenty Coups

Right idea wrong horse. Premium gold pressed Plenty Coup and took over at the top of the lane to score at 9-1. A front running win but not the right horse selected here.

I was with you all the way on this one....had no thought about Premium Gold challenging....has had no turf experience and no turf pedigree....I was most unpleasantly surprised....I thought it was a stone cold 1 - 10 exacta...had the 10 right

I gave the winner a long look and did use him in the saver exacta. He had shown speed in the past and the Keeneland race confirmed that he may like grass. Those sharp enough to but this together before and not after the race made a nice little score.

I guess it may be time for me to at least factor in that "good on synth = probably good on turf" angle....although I still don't think I'd have used the 9 on top.
