Rice On Ice

After an absolutely sultry Saratoga meet the Linda Rice barn has gone completely frigid. She is yet to win a race at Belmont and has failed with several short priced favorites. Today she had Meriwether Jessica who was bet down to 9-2 in the feature at Belmont. The filly never lifted her hooves and finished a well beaten eighth. The important thing for handicappers to take heed is that her barn is taking money with all of their entries like we are still at Saratoga. Unlike Saratoga her horses are running like they are going uphill. This creates many good betting races were you can be assured of a well backed horse not winning. She looks like a bet against for the foreseeable future.

For you folks not familiar with linda rice and saratoga. Linda saves all her ammo for that meet every year. Runs all her horses in turf sprints. Nice work if you can get it!

Rice has the morning line favorite in the today's penultimate race. She is supposed to win here; lets see how she does in a spot where she should win.

Thursday's had the 4-5 chalk in the feature and he could not go by an 18-1 longshot. Another odds-on Rice horse disappoints.

She had the morning line favorite in Friday's feature too, but the public has gone cold on her and she is the second choice at 8 MTP.
