Races of the Week

Last week, I had two winners. El Gato Malo paid $6.80 to win, $4.40 to place, and $2.60 to show in the San Rafael Stakes. Z Fortune won the Lecomte Stakes, paying $12.00 to win, $5.60 to place, and $4.00 to show. So far this year, a flat $2 win bet on my selections has yielded a profit of $14.80 on total wagers of $4.

Today, the Daily Racing Form's races of the week are the San Marcos Stakes at Santa Anita and the American Beauty Stakes at Oaklawn. Equibase's race of the week is the Cincinnati Trophy at Turfway Park.

In the San Marcos, I'll bet Obrigado, who finished third in this race last year, and has never run out of the money on the Santa Anita turf. The Form provides free past performances.

Country Diva looks like a deserving favorite in the American Beauty. She's won two in a row, and can get out of the gate quickly. The Form provides free past performances.

My selection in the Cincinnati Trophy is Birdgirl, who is 1 for 2 at Turfway. There's a lot of spped in this race, and Birdgirl can come from off the pace. Equibase provides free past performances.
