Takamatsunomiya Kinen

With everything being somewhat equal among the 18 horses entered in this years Kinen, the X Factor comes down to the Sire Fuji Kiseki. Betting this race one must remember the Aichi Open held on this very track in 2003 when Kiseki's first foal Tenshino Kiseki ran an incredible 1.06.9, just 0.4 seconds off the track record set by Agnus World. Ultima Thule & Kinsha no Kiseki have the blood that frankly the other horses do not. Slumping Fine Grain, should be considered also.
Chukyo 11 Race( 3-6, 6-3, 3-9,3-13,3-15
6-9,6-13,6-15 ¥2000 Exactas) (Quinellas ¥1000) ( 16 tickets) Total ¥24,000

Awsome Aliseo

Aliseo bounced back from a dissapointing 3rd last time out to capture the Nakayama Spring Stakes yesterday. Favorite Rose Kingdom, making his debut race of 010 came in third at a very over- priced 1.5 favorite. I recommended my strongest " Win Wager" so far of the year in my paid selections, but unfortunately even though I didn't include Kingdom( which according to many emails I was borderline crazy.LOL) I was unable to hit my exacta tickets. I'm getting quite psyched for next months Satuski-Sho, as all contenders seem to be peaking at the same time which will make for one exciting Spring of racing ahead.

March 14 Selection

Chukyo #3 Pillow Talk...distance suits her for a potential good effort tomorrow.

The Wager: 12 Race.. #3 with 6,7,8,11,14..¥1000 Quinellas

Saturday, March 6, 2010


Nakayama 11 Race...#1 Pisa will have a off track tomorrow to deal with but he should be good enough to get his first victory of 010 and the "official front runner status" that will go with it.
The Wager: 1-3, 1-10 ¥5000 Exacta

March 6th Selection

Tulip-Sho Hanshin 11 Race

Rain forecast all day tomorrow which makes #16 Apapane an edgy wager especially at 2.8. Yutaka gets his mount back and with a favorable post position why not! Besides, anything within 6 degrees of Elvis always gets a nod!

The Wager: #7( Omega Blue Hawaii) with 3,5,15,16..¥2000 Quinellas

Derby Watch ( Victoire Pisa)

We'll know for sure after the Yayoi-Sho this weekend( write-up tomorrow) but the Sumi trained contender looks like a solid 2.5 pick that will be garnered going into the Satsuki=Sho next month.

Derby Watch ( Aliseo)

Lost front runner status with his 3rd place outing last time out. Still Top 5 , easily.

Monday, March 1, 2010

Derby Watch ( Reve d ' Orient)

Matsuda's got himself another contender. A close 2nd in the Kisaragi-sho was an impressive ride.
