Races of the Week and Ohio Stakes Selections Part II
Last week, Sporting Art won the Calder Derby, paying $5.00 to win, $2.80 to place, and $2.60 to show. Harlem Rocker upset J Be K in the Withers Stakes. Blumin Attitude finished seventh in the Bosselman/Gus Fonner Handicap. Key Low finished sixth in the Howard B. Noonan Stakes.
Yesterday, Proud Spell won the Kentucky Oaks, paying $8.80 to win, $4.80 to place, and $3.20 to show. Jilli's Cape finished third in the Angenora Stakes, paying $4.20 to show. So far this year, a flat $2 win wager on my selections has yielded a net profit of $32.60 on total wagers of $62.
In the Derby, I'll bet Pyro, who has never finished out of the money on dirt. The Daily Racing Form provides free past performances.
I'll bet Pforperfectpistol in the Babst/Palacios Memorial Handicap today at Beulah Park. Pforperfectpistol won this race last year and has never finished out of the money. He's making his first start since last June, but he has shown that he can win off of a layoff. Brisnet.com provides free past performances.
