Tanabata Sho

Nakayama 11 Race....#2 Animate Bio. Having started her 011 campaign in the G1 Victoria Mile, and then in less than a month a seemingly fit Bio ran in the Epsom. Now back in what might appear to be a favoritism to a clockwise course, jockey Goto, has the rail to bring home a potential winner, in what will be his last race in Japan until September 17th.

The Wager 2-9, 9-2, ¥5000 Each-Way Exacta
2&9 with 3,4,10,11,15,16 ¥1000 Trios

Missed Target

Not a bad effort yesterday by Target. but since he was in perfect position through out the race a better result was warranted.

Robert noticed that he seemed to slow down, kick off his hind heels , and speed up again. Target* in the blue < right pic, literally looks like he is skipping down the stretch, with his heels coming straight back.

I'll continue to back him, but I would like to see him come back sooner than the previous 2 month interval and maybe race in a slightly lower class level, but then I wont get the odds.

Radio Nikkei Sho

Nakayama 11 Race.....#5 Target Machine....Morning Line has him at a very generous 18-1. Trainer Munakata is usually quick to pull the jockey, but regular rider Tanaka is still on board ,which suggest they are biding their time waiting for this horse to put it all together.

The Wager: #5 with 1, 7,8 ¥1000 Each-Way Exacta
#5 with 2,10,13 ¥2000 Each-Way Exacta
#5 with 1,2,7,8,10,13 ¥1000 Random Trios************************************************

10th Race....#5 Young at Heart... The largest differential on my speed spread sheets of the day between one horse and its nearest competitor. Getting just 2.0 but the race really only breaks a few ways.

The Wager: #5 with 4,6 ¥10,000 One Way Exactas

July 2

Nakayama 10th Race

#3 Kilauea...Last two races were competitive at a higher class level. Drops down here and looks to figure.

Pathetic Returns

Here is a link to the TCK Teio Sho this past week at Oii Race Course. I'm not sure what people are thinking when they bet into such one sided pools. A straight trifecta paying less than 300 yen??
