Last Week's Best Winning Beyers, HG PP's

Email

Despite rumors to the contrary, my recent absence had nothing to do over my personal outrage that Stephanie's Kitten received a lone vote for champion juvenile filly, denying My Miss Aurelia a deserving unanimous Eclipse. 

I'm not ready for the rubber room just yet, not just yet, but I would love to hear an explanation for that one. 

Actually, I've had terrible troubles with my right eye over the last ten days or so.  After a battery of tests, it looks (terrible pun, I know) like I'm good to go for the fore-see-able future (the puns get cornea and cornea, okay, I'll quit while I'm behind).

This blog will be shorter than the normal week-opener as I want to get this past week's leading winning Beyers, as well as the upcoming week's HandiGambling pp's out to the public as quickly as possible. 

I will get to all of your questions and comments early next week.

I'm really looking forward to the second FormBlog convention at Gulfstream Park on March 9-11.  It's always great to meet and interact with some of the wonderful FormBloggers, spend a few days at the track with them to pick their brains (and hopefully learn a thing or two), and have some excellent food (I pay the tab, or else). 

Laura is graciously hosting the convention and you can find more information on her excellent website at www.ironmaidensthoroughbreds.com

Congrats to NellyGCM for finishing first in last week's HandiGambling exercise.  Let's go with Friday's eighth race at Santa Anita for this week's event.

PAST PERFORMANCES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS BLOG POST.
 
 Remember that you have a mythical $100 with which to wager on the race, and the entrant with the highest money total will receive a "Monthly Enhanced 60-Card Past Performance Plan."
 
 Anyone going over the $100 limit will be disqualified.
 
 Please post your plays and analysis to the blog.
 
 Please separate the play from the analysis and label the play "HG" with the program numbers (instead of the horse's name) for easier scoring.
 
 In the event of a tie, the earliest post gets first preference. One entry per person please.
 
 I reserve the right to approve or deny any entries.
 
 I know that there is a time issue for some of you, but let's remember why we began the HandiGambling races in the first place. The goal was to share ideas on why we like these horses, and why we're betting them the way we are. I'm not asking for a novel, but if you could spare a sentence or two outlining your handicapping angles, and thought processes about wagering, it would be appreciated.

Best of luck to all.

I'll be back Friday for the HG analysis and Saturday for some weekend spot plays.
