I'm not sure what the take away is on today's River City Handicap at Churchill Downs. I guess I'll sum it up with a missed opportunity for me.
Silver Max falls to zero in two starts at this distance and it just doesn't seem like a distance that he wants.
Villandry was as I good as I thought he'd be. I don't look at Morning Line odds and I was surprised by the Post Time odds that placed him second on the tote board, I guess it was more obvious than the Ol' Turk thought.
Hamp! On a break since early September, Trainer Correas was only winning 12% off those breaks. In the 4 year old geldings last twelve races he's been in the money twice. If you look at his running lines he has closed like a freight train but usually too late and the results weren't there. We'll tuck his name away to keep our eye on.
Under Control (Brz) looked good on paper, and I respect Motion enough, but as I said pre race race, I'd like to see a bit more out of the 6 YO gelding. I saw a nice closing turn of foot.
Anyways, keep plugging 'cappers. Turk Out!
