Races of the Week
Last week, Red Rocks upset Curlin in the Man O' War Stakes. Miraculous Miss finished second in the Princess Rooney Handicap, paying $4.80 to place and $2.80 to show. Weathered finished fifth in the Delaware Oaks. Catlaunch won the George Lewis Memorial Stakes, paying $5.40 to win, $4.00 to place, and $3.60 to show. Raise the Reward won the Hoover Stakes. So far this year, a flat $2 win bet on my selections has yielded a net profit of $18.10 on total wagers of $104.
This week, the Daily Racing Form's races of the week are the Coaching Club American Oaks today at Belmont Park and the Eddie Read Handicap tomorrow at Del Mar. Equibase's race of the week is the Virginia Derby today at Colonial Downs.
The Godolphin entry of Little Belle and Music Note looks like a prohibitive favorite in the Coaching Club American Oaks. I can't bet against them, but they'll probably go off at too short a price to be worth a bet. The Form provides free past performances. Brisnet.com past performances are available via Darley Stable.
Sailor's Cap looks like a deserving favorite in the Virginia Derby. There's not much early speed in this field, and Sailor's Cap can run close to the pace. Equibase provides free past performances. Brisnet.com past performances are available via McPeek Racing.
I was unable to find past performances for today's Queen City Oaks at River Downs.
I'll post my selection in the Eddie Read Handicap later today or early tomorrow. The Form provides free past performances. Brisnet.com past performances are available via O'Neill Racing.
