Weekend Racing

Well we had some protests, some New York Times stuff and plenty more this week. However, thank goodness for racing, because we can actually hang out tomorrow - from morning to evening - and watch some.

As a reminder, an event I tend to take for granted - the Dubai World Cup - starts bright and early in the morning. It's on TVG in the US and HPI up here. Scott has a look at some of the races, and there are a billion links/PPs on Goatzapper about it.

I went through it, and I may play a few races.

I think Lucky Chappy may run well in the UAE Derby, and might bet $5 if he's odds. The former Canadian horse, Maritimer, looks neat at a price.

In the Turf sprint, I've always been a Regally Ready fan. He seems like he has a shot.

Giant Ryan seems like a wise-guy play in the sprint. I might play him.

In the big one, there are a ton of possibles. People seem to be wanting to discount Royal Delta, but I'm not. If she's value (and she likely will be, she's 11-1 at Betfair), I'll pop $2 on the mare.

In the Florida Derby later in the day, I'm looking at Take Charge Indy, hopefully holding off a fast closing Union Rags, with Reveron coming third, off a cheesy angle play I like.

In the evening, the second leg of the Spring Championship happens at Woodbine, along with the second race back for Horse of the Year San Pail in the Glory's Comet. At the Meadowlands, there's a pick 6 carryover of decent size.

Holy cow, I just realized I could be playing racing from dawn til midnight. Life could be worse.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Nailed the Florida Derby! Well done, sir!

Can we hear a little more about the cheesy angle (especially one that brings home bombs)?
