Get A Hunch, Bet A Bunch

By The Spokesman-Review
 

When a beaten favorite you like, explicably or inexplicable, fails to run his race, don’t give up on your judgment too easily.

In the Inaugural Purse, Extreme Edge was badly bothered when a rival bore out, leaving the way clear for Hope’s Rullah to extend his amazing string of opening-night successes. Tonight, those two head a very contentious field in the featured sixth race.

Extreme Edge, still unclassified, deserves another chance. So does 11-year-old Explosive Gold, who switches to up-and-comer Jason Eads in the second race.

Here are tonight’s selections:

$5 daily doubles pairing BIT OF WINDY and HONCHO in the first race with EXPLOSIVE GOLD in the second ($10).

THIRD: $5 exactas pairing BILLY CLUB with NORTH TEA and BOGGSVILLE ($10).

FIFTH: $10 to win on FUNNYMONEY HABIT.

SIXTH:$20 to win on EXTREME EDGE.

NINTH:$1 trifectas wheeling SUNRISE PEACE to BY JOVE IT’S EASY, FLEET TRIAD, STEADY ‘N NICE and HUNTER’S BARBARIAN ($12).

Original bankroll: $2,000.

Wednesday’s results: Lost $23.20.

Present bankroll: 1,900.80.
