A day of “what could of beens…”
Except for 2 second place finishes that were both nip and tuck in the final strides; if Zulu Alpha had held on; if Sombeyay had gotten up…we would have won the Pick 6.
We finished with 5 winners out of the 14 races. Nice enough.
Our top pick finished 2nd on five other occasions. Nice enough.
We had exactas that returned the likes of $38.80, $16.60, $18.50, $92.40, $37.70, $18.50, $4.50, $24.20, $38.30 on the day, too. Nice enough.
But we could have left with a pile of money.
We left with a pile of excuses and a pile grandeur images still dancing in our heads, and a pile of “close-but-no-good” tickets. After all? This ain’t horseshoes. This ain’t hand grenades.
Don’t know where we will go next in search of some grand racing to handicap. But keep looking. We will find something.
Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
