< Target Machine..My Derby Horse and Bankroll Builder

Tokyo 9th Race....#6 Target Machine A real " Ugly Betty" on the recent form . Last four results respectively 11th,10th.4th and most recent at 40-1, a 13th finish but his probable odds tomorrow 6-1!!

A true class drop that will only be dampened by the surface. Tough to figure how Target or any of these horses will handle it thus I cant pull the trigger as much as I would otherwise be inclined to, but a real chance for a good effort.

Kyoto 11 Race Mile Championship

# 11 Grand Prix Boss....Throw out the Swan Stakes and his attempt overseas and we have a very good looking 3yr old that has already TWO G1 victories under his young saddle and getting 13-1.

Robert, Are u coming for the Cup. Ill be getting together with some people but sure give me some details when you'll be there and we can meet up. Whats that ur saying about the weather there and Silport. Google has a clear day slated for tomorrow. The track will be crap here which makes me gun shy on target but still having a very decent wager. Throwing caution to the wind and RAIN lol

Keith Hagstrom said...

For the what its worth department..Target had a workout on the 19th this morning..the running time 43.0 28.3 14.6..all horses had their last canters on the 16th except for target who also ran on the 16th but the only one that had it today. Probably trainer Munakata getting him some quick work in the rain to prepare for tomorrow??

robert said...

It's a nice day here in Kansai but it was pouring all day yesterday. Should be dried up by now.

I'll be coming next Sunday for the Cup! Want to just meet at the station or in front of the main gates to the track sometime early Sun morning? What time are you thinking about going?

I hope Target hits for you today and he doesn't decide to skip at the top of the straight again! :)

Sean said...

Keith, Hope you managed to get something out of it but it looks like a near miss with Target. The trifecta paid handsomely too...

I could make a case for just about every horse in the Mile. Too tough so I'm just having a little fun.

Ha! I knew that race would make a fool of me. The reason I cut Eishin Apollon was because I decided that Fifth Petal was just as good and offered much better value.

Keith Hagstrom said...

Didnt get anything for 3rd on Target. Disaster, needed a 2nd place finish. Sean, yeah I didnt want to buy the favorites on such an open affair as this Mile but it was difficult to nail down any concrete selections. Robert..Ill check back with you later in the week. If you want reserved tickets then early the better. Im meeting people who generally just want to drink and look around so we're just in need of an entrance ticket.

robert said...

Just an entrance ticket is good with me too. Just let me know the time and place and I'll be there. My buddy and I have been known to tip a few so I have a feeling it'll be a great day!

I'll likely head to the tracks on Sunday as well with some buddies. Look for the foreigners drinking out of wine glasses

robert said...

Beer, for some reason I thought you'd be drinking beer outta wine glasses. :) Let me know if you wanna hook up for a drink or 2 on Sunday. I'll be at the track all day.
