Get A Hunch, Bet A Bunch
Every dog and every handicapper has his, or her, day. Last weekend was profitable and, with a little more luck, the bankroll would be back on the plus side.
Roadwork, which set the pace in the Speed Handicap, looks almost unbeatable in the seventh. On Board, once a fine stakes mare, takes another leap upward in the ninth. If she wins with authority, we could see her back in top company before the season ends.
Here are today’s selections:
FIRST: $5 doubles pairing JUSTA GRAY and DREAM ONE with MISTER ALIEN in the second. $2 doubles combining the other five with MISTER ALIEN ($20).
SECOND: $20 to win on MISTER ALIEN.
THIRD: $5 quinella box of NILES CREEK, SENSATIONAL KNIGHT and KATJUN ($15).
FOURTH: $5 to win on TWELVE O’CLOCK HI.
SEVENTH: $10 to win on ROADWORK. Parlay any winning to GUMMIT in the eighth.
TENTH: $1 trifecta pairing NO MORE FRECKLES to every combination of FRISKY TIKE, CHOICE COOKIE, HARBOR FIRE and LADY YVETTE ($12).
Original bankroll: $2,000.
Sunday’s result: Won $55.50.
Monday’s result: Won $63.50.
Present bankroll: $1,867.50.
