Big Stakes

This weekend is chalk-full of several stakes.

Highlighting the weekend are the big boys - The Metro, and the Breeders Crown. On Monday, perhaps the most interesting occurs, however, the Cane Pace.

Art Official drew the very tough seven post
. But that should not stop him. He certainly looked to be at least 5 lengths better than the field last week in his elimination. I make him a 1-2 favourite to win this and punch his ticket to the Jug.

If he does win, and makes it to the Jug, the field bet gets a boost. In the last Jug Future pool, I find two potential overlays. One, the field at 5-1 which includes Art if he wins, and Santanna Blue Chip at 13-1. It is time to make a third bet with my $1000 (ok, it used to be $1000) bankroll.

$20 win on The Field at 5-1
$8 win on Santanna Blue Chip at 13-1

Art is an obvious overlay, but I think Santanna is way too long. I thought he raced superbly in the Confederation Cup and he is built for a half miler. He is quite a good horse.

To do some banking here with the bets:

Starting bankroll: $1000
NA Cup Bet:
$7 to win on Sand Shooter if over 16-1- Accepted. Result: 5th.
$60 on Somebeachsomewhere if over 4-5 - No bet. Result: Won

Overall Result -$7
Bankroll: $993

Meadowlands Pace Bets:
$8 to win on Share the Delight if over 15-1. Accepted: Result: 3rd
$8 to win on Art Official if over 16-1. No bet. Result: Won

Overall Result: - $8
Current Bankroll: $985

We'll be back tomorrow to have a look at the Breeders Crown and the $1 million dollar Metro stakes for juveniles.
