Alizee, well I didn’t expect she would win yesterday but she did, I suppose the bit of a let up helped and the “failure” if you could call it that of Trapeze Artist. But Alizee is back to her best and maybe she can string a few more wins together as she is already installed as favourite for the Golden Mile even if she is not entered yet. For us, well we had a bad day even though we got Bella Vista each way. I got the place dividend plus $50 money back fro running second. Hotshots was just one winner from 3 Maiden had one place from 2, WFM selections were two from two so cant complain about that but the Quinella in our Daily Feature was no compensationg for Bergerac being run down at the post after overcoming the slow early pace.
We lost Sale today due to the weather but it is Stratalbyn Cup Day and we believe we have a nice dutch bet set up and the Quinella should come too. They are mostly Benchmark horses but the this Cup, even though worth $50,000, is more equivalent to a city Benchmark race. Hopefully we can have a good day and we do have some real longshots amongst the Hotshots. I did take the longest priced one each way and why not $21 the win $8.5 fixed the place.
