[Updated with the sad, sad results. Apparently agreement with BG isn’t the best thing.]

I feel bad because I owe you all a couple more Playboy Mansion posts. I’ve really been slacking here at Up for Poker, so I vow to get back on track.

 

But speaking of tracks… I’ve been working on the Saturday card at Tampa Bay Downs. BG says there are some really obvious favorites in about 2/3 of the races. I guess we’ll see how much I know if my picks match his. Without further ado, here they are (TOP CHOICE listed first):

Race 1:

#3 Sweet Devil

#6 Little Bit Foolish

#7 Captain Zones

#3 Sweet Devil, #12 Lucky Dove, #2 Forli’s Limit: We both liked the winner in this one.

Race 2:

#1 Windsor Dickens

#8 Rocky Plains

#7 Caper On Holme

#6 Angel by Day, #2 Savannah’s Wish, #1 Windsor slot gacor Dickens: My internet died around here so I didn’t get to see it. My top choice got up for show.

Race 3:

#10 Hamlin

#6 Success Affirmed

#3 Edgerson

#9 Toka King, #5 Fire Striker, #6 Success Affirmed: My internet returned just in time to see my top choice turn right out of the gate. That’s not a good thing.

Race 4:

#2 Bye Bye Ladies

#6 Stormy Babe

#10 Diamond Fire

#6 Stormy Babe, #2 Bye Bye Ladies, #9 Mysteriousness: I really, really liked Bye Bye Ladies but he came up just short.

Race 5:

#10 Hup Two

#8 Shucks

#3 Hots Is Hot

#3 Hots Is Hot, #7 Crafty Slew, #1 Volcanic Force: Wasn’t too close on this one.

Race 6:

#5 Worldly Endeavor

#7 Splice Girl

#3 Witto Road

#5 Worldly Endeavor, #8 Rolly’s Babysnooks, #9 Precocity Princess: My top choice came across first, but, for some reason, I didn’t bet it.

Race 7:

#7 Professor Biggs

#9 Big Tex

#6 Sandy’s Secret

#9 Big Tex, #3 Drivingmaxandmitzi, #7 Professor Biggs: This was my one and only big hit of the day. Big Tex went off at 12/1 and I had a $5 WP on him.

Race 8:

#9 She Too

#5 Dual Diagnosis

#1 Honeymooning

#2 Top Kitten, #7 Debs Gone Shopping, #5 Dual Diagnosis: Huh? Actually, Dual Diagnosis made a nice run after a slow start

Race 9:

#4 Seneca Summer

#1 Tyler’s Jewel

#8 Northcountry Chief

#6 Ceviche, #5 Notonetoquit, #1 Tyler’s Jewel: Yet again, the best I could do is find one of my horses in the show.

Race 10:

#6 Puzzle

#9 Secret Samba

#10 Full Flavor

#6 Puzzle, #5 Secret Lies, #10 Full Flavor: Unfortunately, Secret Lies screwed up a nice little pay day here.

Race 11:

#10 Light Night

#3 Lakely

#5 O’Malley

#6 Lite Up, #3 Lakely, #10 Light Night: If the 25/1 shot Lite Up drops dead, I have the winner, the exacta and the trifecta. Dammit.

Race 12:

#9 National Anthem

#6 Skipteaser

#7 Go for Glitter

#8 Peter’s Puddles, #12 Unreal General, #3 Major Parker: A fitting way to finish the day. The winner paid $72, the exacta paid $840 and the trifecta paid $8021. I, of course, was nowhere near those horses.

It was a big loss day at the track. I sure better find a way to improve before Kentucky Derby day!
