    Chalk Festival – 6/22/14

    Posted By Mark Geiger on June 22, 2014

    I think I had a pilot error yesterday.  For some reason, the post did not post – most likely because I did not press the “publish” button.  I did get the email out though and will copy that and post it here. Kent Molinaro makes a rare appearance in Race 10 at the fair where he brings back #1 Bob’s Big Secret – a 7 year-old gelding making his fifth career start. Off two years, he’s dropped to the bottom and opens at 6/1.  If he’s bet down too much I’ll watch. The following (more…)

    Question of the day and I do not know the answer.  In R7 at SA is it Nakatani on for Sadler or kicked off Cerin?  Rider’s choice?  Trainers’ choices? The following are not necessarily selections.  They are merely horses that have an approximate 50% chance of finishing in the exacta. OTP Race 8:  #3 Summer Hit Race 9:  #2 Man From Lagos Yesterday’s results:  1 horses, winner, $ 4 returned SA Race 5:  #4 Home Run Kitten Race 6:  #4 (more…)

    Nature abhors a vacuum.  Betcha didn’t think that long time trainers Richard Baltas and Blake Heap would be two of the trainers to step up as a few of the barns start to decline.  Ready to start trusting Phil D’Amato?  I am.  If Peter Miller sees fit to put Elvis up on his entrants (including a baby firster in #2 in R5), am I going to argue?  Don’t think so.  Just a few random thoughts.  Nothing more. The following are not necessarily selections.  They are merely horses that have an approximate 50% chance of finishing in the (more…)

    Not much to get the blood going.  Oh sure, Oak Tree is back in business at PTown but I’m pretty disappointed that there is no mule race today.  I didn’t see one tomorrow or Saturday, either.  Those are fun to watch. Is it just me or might they have been better off closing SA a week or two early?  Not Nakatani riding for Miller in Race 4 instead of a Cerin.  It’s a dirt race and he rode the Miller horse (#1 Big Casanova) to a nice maiden score.  A snaeak peak ahead has him off a (more…)

    Closing Day at GG.  In years past, before they shut down a few of the fairs, I would normally track the fairs separately.  That has changed and there really is not that much of difference any longer between the GG meet and places like Ptown, Santa Rosa, and Sac.  No mule races in my stats even though I loved watching Black Ruby and Taz run.   Glad to see that Oak Tree has found a new home on the fair circuit.  After Stronach and HOL kicked them out, it was pretty hard to run a race related charity when there (more…)

    At least Cali Chrome’s co-owner finally calmed down.   Yes, there is a Tsagalakis horse running today in SA 4.  He’s 2/1 and since I do not play horizontal wagers, there does not appear to be a lot of value in #1 Oliver’s Tale on the stretch-out where he might have some company.

    The track is a no whining zone.  ”Emotion” is no excuse either.  I’ll say a couple of other things about the TC and then shut my trap.  The champions I watched in the so-called “Decade of Champions (1970s),” took on all comers and it would be a grave insult to them to somehow alter the rules.  Secondly, as nice a story as Cali Chrome was before his owner shot off his mouth, from a Beyer perspective, in the KD, he ran slower (97)  than Big Brown , Street Sense, Barbaro, Smarty Jones, Funny Cide, War Emblem, and Monarchos, and Fusaichi (more…)

    Safe trips to all.  The “game” seems to have gotten a  boost from all the hoopla surrounding Cali Chrome.  Win or lose, the colt is a champ and so are his connections.  NBC has been making a big fuss about it so let’s hope they get their ratings and an exciting finish. My brain is trained to make a big deal out of the unusual and we have that going today in R9 at SA where Justin Evans ships in #5 Rebranded.  Evans is one good trainer who has his main stable on the New Mexico circuit (more…)
