    Anyone got picks yet for the Belmont Super Saturday card?

    Should be a nice set of races. Fields rather small though - may not have a lot of overlays.

    TVG is paying double the odds in the JKGC if your horse wins by two lengths or more - should be worth giving that a shot.

    I love Cross Traffic, but I think this is a bone-headed decision to try to get 1-1/4 miles on the lead. My heart wants to bet him; my head says that's a waste of money. Hope the weather is good; ought to be a great day of racing.

    Ill pick every horse in one race except one then you can bet that horse. If you dont believe it check out my losing record in the SBR racebook im a toilet therethis would be equal to fading one of Brocks rubber band plays

    No morning lines yet so may completely change my mind if all these are short prices




    The Beldame might not be the best to bet but it will be interesting to see if Princess Of Sylmar has anything for Royal Delta.Sylmar's connections passed the Cotillion at Parx where they would have gotten a lot more $$ being a PA bred and would have been close to a cinch.It's refreshing to see them want to take on history instead of just going for the most money.

    4-Royal Delta
    2-Princess Of Sylmar
    5-Centring
    6-Lady Cohiba


    4,2/4,2/5,6/1,3,5,6

    Probably not much to be made in the Kelso either as Graydar was really good when we last saw him and could be unbeatable at a mile.He has been laid up for a while so I could play against him with Hymn Brook but he won't be that much of a price.

    4-Hymn Brook

    The Vosburgh looks wide open and need to see how it gets bet.Forty Tales probably wants further and Strapping Groom wired a Grade 1 at the Spa.I'll go against those 2 at likely short prices.Would prefer Justin Phillip on the Belmont surface to turn the tables on Strapping Groom or Bahamian Squall who is in the best form of his life.

    3-Bahamian Squall
    2-Justin Phillip


    Can't do anything in the Flower Bowl either without seeing how they bet it.The Tannery/Laughing entry looks tough.

    1-Tannery//1A-Laughing

    The Turf Classic is close to impossible and the only stance I would take is hoping King Kreesa takes a lot of money after almost keeping up with Wise Dan for a mile.G Motion does very well in these spots so I'll give Nutello a long look but wouldn't take less than 5-1 on anyone in the race.

    3-Nutello

    As for the Gold Cup I am a big fan of Cross Traffic but Flat Out always jumps up and runs a monster effort when he gets back on Belmont's track.Hopefully Cross Traffic fades and dirties his form enough to get me a price on him in the BC Classic.

    6-Flat Out

    I guess we define sucker differently.

    Exactly Mike though way too much work for most. 90% (guess) of the gamblers in the world who profit do so on PARIMUTUALS. i.e poker , horse/dog racing.

    You must be getting easier trivia than me. Mine have been brutal lately i.e "in 1976 who won the sun belt conference" on like nonsense.

    I don't think I have ever been certain about the 3rd answer .It ends up being process of elimination and then a guess with what is left.

    Never watched any of it
    Horses now more of a cult following

    General public and new generation bettors have no interest in horses

    I love doing both so not looking to get into an argument about which is better(horses or sports). Realize sharp minds are setting the lines but they are doing so for the masses who as a whole are clueless about handicapping and money management. I realize Vegas willing to take positions on some games but overall they're trying to balance action amongst a largely uninformed public. While I certainly have come across sharp minds in these forums in sports (and horses) it never ceases to amaze me how many bone heads I know personally when it comes to betting both. Realize there are sharp players out there who do their homework and understand money management and as long as the masses who play are fools there will be opportunities in sports betting
