Results from Churchill 9th on June 29th
Centella broke slow and unhurried from the gate and settled into last place of eight runners after a furlong in the six furlong race. Way back as they reached the turn, she was angled to the rail by jockey Corey Lanerie and made some progress in passing tiring horses but finished sixth...14 1/2 lengths back of the winner.
Allowance company can be tough when facing it the first time. Centella went off at odds of 5-1 but was no match for the top four finishers.
It will be interesting to see the next move Angel Montano, Sr. makes with the horse. Ellis Park? A rest until Churchill's September meet? Arlington or either of the Indiana tracks?
One thing for sure...there was nothing there today.
It was a good spring Churchill meet for Paulie, though. Did some tracking through Twinspires.com, my wagering venue of choice when I am not at Churchill.
Showed a profit of $812.00 on races bet at Churchill.
That's not counting the money won at the track. I estimate another $1800 there in profit.
Summer brings Saratoga and the best racing in the states. I got beat up pretty good in handicapping there in 2013.
Hope springs eternal, though and I'm anxious to implement the recent handicapping/wagering strategy I've been using on the upstate New York track. It did pretty well at Belmont and I also showed a profit at Keeneland this spring when I first started using it.
They're at the post!
