Hurray! The losing streak ended Monday. Only a near miss in the last-race exacta marred what could have been an excellent night. Nineteen of the last 29 first and second picks have been winners.
There’s a good possibility of muddy or sloppy going tonight, when the nine races include three events for Arabian horses. The fourth race brings out the redoubtable Arab Pk Whiskey, which has won 13 of 33 and seldom runs worse than third.
The disappointing T R Country Boy goes one mile in the finale, still trying to win his non-winners of two, although he’s stakes-placed over a distance of ground.
Here are today’s selections:
SECOND: $10 to win on COUNTRY MANIA.
FIFTH: $5 to win on DOMINANT FIRE.
SIXTH: $10 to win on SPACETACULAR.
SEVENTH: $5 to win on EXCLUSIVE RIGHT and $2 exacta box combining him with TWO AN OH and PRINCE OTTO ($12).
NINTH: $5 to win on WILEY BEAR.
Original bankroll: $2,000.
Monday’s result: Won $31.50.
Present bankroll: $1,542.70.
