Jumpers Get No Repsect~Play Of The Day

How could a grade I winner be 15-1 in a non-winners of one race allowance? That is the case today with Spy In The Sky in Aqueduct's seventh race. We have a play here if Spy In The Sky goes off anywhere near the 15-1 morning line. At this 11 furlong distance stamina is key, many horses can not see out this trip. Spy In The Sky is a winner at 19 furlongs, he will get 11 furlong with panache. He beat Sermon Of Love by ten lengths at Saratoga and Sermon Of Love beat Chapin Beach who is favored over him here. The public does not get to handicap this type of race very much and this is a scenario which they are unfamiliar with. The obscure out of town trainer and the prejudice of gamblers against steeplechase races will all provide value. There could be generous returns here keying the long winded Spy In The Sky.

None of my tracks running today and I'm in the yard getting rid of leaves. Took a break and just luckily I tune into Power Cap and think, why not.. Very nice call from you and the announcer.
Thank you

My Favorite Guy in the sky looked kindly upon Spy In the Sky today as he rolled to a facile win at 10-1. When you only make one bet on the day and the win returns $22.40 with the exacta returning $372 you are having a good day.

Nice job RG, 10-1 sure beats raking the leaves. You may be able to hire someone now.
