Complete archive of 2006 daily Best Bets picks and plays pages.
With the weather forecast for Wednesday we thought that perhaps the early turfers would be moved to the main -- but felt like the finale stood a good chance of staying on the grass. That's where we really had some action -- but it wasn't to be. All turf racing was canceled. So we take a little profit to start the our stretch run.
RACE FOUR... $5 WP on Market Psychology.
Collected $21.25 on the WP ($4.90, 3.60).
RACE NINE...$5 WP on Hunting Hillbilly.
...$5 WP on Dr Bloomer.
...$1 exacta box... Hunting Hillbilly/Dr Bloomer/Seeking Answers/Eastern Crown, if scratch sub Multiple Choice and Elusive Image respectively.
...$1 tri box... Hunting Hillbilly/Dr Bloomer/Seeking Answers/Eastern Crown, if scratch sub Multiple Choice and Elusive Image respectively.
No wagers. Race moved off the turf.
Profit for the day... $11.25
RACE 1/2... $5 DD... R1/La Coruna... R2/Dram.

All turf wagers are turf only
If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halve are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
