Hunch Bets for Tuesday, April 1

Run On 8th at Philly Park
Love To Gamble 5th at Beulah
I'm A Gone Guy 10th at Sunland
No Called Strikes 3rd at Penn National
Makin Money Easy 1st at Will Rogers
Honor And Praise 7th at Sunland
Midnight Martini 8th at Will Rogers

- Primal Peak earned a career high 95 Beyer for his second at Philly Park on Saturday, and everyone is understandably excited about his prospects. There's another NW3x allowance at Philly coming up on April 19, but it's only six furlongs instead of 6 1/2. And as I've mentioned, trainer Keith Lebarron is way psyched to get him on the grass.

At the other end of the spectrum, Mr. W.B. has not been one of Kasey K's better claims. Taken for $25,000 last year, he hasn't won since, and he currently toils in the 10K range. He's entered in the 4th at the Big A tomorrow. He comes off a fair third at Philly Park just over a week ago. Trainer Scott Volk told Bob that he's confident that he'll come in the money, which is what I remember being told before his 2nd place finish, at 31-1, three races back in a restricted 20K race here at the Big A. Come On Chas drops from 40K for David Jacobson, nice...

Off topic but copied this from a DRF article. Interesting most of the horses off the Derby trail due to injury were training on the safe surfaces in CA.

"The injury is the latest in a string that has decimated the California-based 3-year-old division. These stakes winners are injured and off the Derby trail: Dixie Chatter (Norfolk Stakes), Crown of Thorns (San Felipe), Into Mischief (Hollywood Futurity), Nikki’sgoldensteed (Turf Paradise Derby), Autism Awareness (El Camino Real Derby at Bay Meadows) and Sierra Sunset (Rebel at Oaklawn Park)."

Thanks, yeah, I saw that, and of course we have to add Georgie Boy to this list. To be fair, three of those injuries did occur on dirt tracks. However, it does seem disproportionate to the attrition rate elsewhere.

Nice one for Primal Peak! I hope to get out to see him at some point, so keep us posted on his next move.

Seems like we have a few Philadelphians contributing to the blog.
We have to get your Philly area contingent together sometime for a "meet, greet and win some money" at Philly Park.
(You can sleep over at my place in Upper Dublin but I cannot guarantee against a sneak attack by Bugzilla (the fierce Maltese).
