Two and a half months remain. Just wanted to do a quick recap on trainers I’ve followed, and what I’m looking for going forward. More for a quick reference for myself:
Ali: one small winner. Will keep an eye out for his second and third timers over the course.
Arboritanza: has a ton of positive angles coming in. Nothing’s worked to this point.
Bradley: Hasn’t shown up all meet. Running most at FG. Hope he shows up with a long layoff type.
Connelly: very sparse activity. Looking for her Dirt to Turfers.
Deaton: limited starts. Looking for his layoffs of 30 days or more.
Downing: nothing out of limited starts. Looking for turf routers and stretch outs.
Gonzales, Aldana: has a couple nice winners. She’s live in all scenarios when hot.
Gotera: most disappointing. Hasn’t run one horse after saving my meet last year.
Granitz: as solid as they come. Should’ve been playing him regardless of odds.
Lopez, Angel: limited action. Turf routers are way to go.
Lichoa: not my cup of tea but may back at big odds.
Minieri: limited action. Only play in Allowance races OR at huge odds.
Ochoa: I keep getting mad at him, but then realize he got DQ’d at 71-1 and just missed at 24-1. A little racing luck and him, and I, are having big meets.
Raymond: solid in the mold of Granitz, but has two $30 horses thus far. Fun fact, I missed them both. Long Layoffs the way to go.
Riggatieri: returning to his solid rep. Hard to get a price on the live ones. Maiden Claimers the way to go.
Sinkiewicz: having a good meet yet hasn’t scored with his bread and butter dirt routers.
Ubide: limited action. Turnbacks and short rest are way to go.
Vinson: mainly at Gulf. Long layoffs are a gold mine.
Wetherington, M: limited action. Watch for the long layoffs.
Jocks: Camacho and Gallardo tower over the colony. I predict Gallardo catches Camacho for the title. Morales, A.Santos, and SPIETH believe it or not are all growing on me.
Updated Record: 10-109, -$1831
