Bet Horse Racing - No Queen in Pletcher Barn

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/26/2013 6:00:57 PM

There was no Queen CD blasting ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ in the Todd Pletcher barn early this week when the news surfaced that Violence, who was beaten for the first time in the Fountain of Youth, suffered a career-ending injury.

The brilliant colt fractured a sesamoid bone in his right front ankle and it would be too risky to bring him back and risk a stud career, which figures to be lucrative since he was a Grade 1 sports betting winner and obviously something special.

Both of the weekend prep, the Youth and the Risen Star, were contrasts in motion.

The chalk in the Risen Star had a horrible trip has a chance to rebound next time.

In other betting sites racing news, there was a pick six hit at Santa Anita last week.

That is not the news but it goes to prove once again, there are many ways to skin a cat and many different ways online sports betting site players can approach this game.

There was a carryover on the day the Six was hit and that made the money flow as the pool was over $700,000.

The winning ticket cost nearly $4,000 and it paid over $125,000 but that is not what made the wager interesting.

It was how the horse betting ticket was structured.

Conventional wisdom, even with a carryover, is that if you can isolate more than one single in the sequence, you will be able to spread in the other slots and theoretically heighten the chances of cashing the ticket.

But the winning ticket on this day was a 1x3x3/2xAllxAll.

The winning ticket’s single paid $8; a 3-2 winner took a $43.40 runner won the next leg and the third leg.

The sixth race winner came back 5-1 and the nightcap paid $5.

They key to the big payoff was the 7th race was the All punch proved extremely wise when the winner Collation, paid $60.

Granted, it’s not easy just picking and properly betting one winner so it is truly an accomplishment to hit a Pick Six of this size and what a feeling it must have been for the ticket holder to sit and watch the last race of the sequence and know he had already won the bet.

Good job.

The Gotham this week at Aqueduct should be well subscribed. The springboard to the key prep the Wood Memorial should have a number of Graded stakes winners in the game.

Overanalyze, whom last year won the Grade 2 Futurity at Belmont Park and the Grade 2 Remsen; Jerome hero Vyjack; and Honorable Dillon, who posted a half-length victory in the Grade 2 Hutcheson at Gulfstream Park last time out, 8 or 9 others.

Last week trainer Rudy Rodriguez sent out Vyjack for a six-furlong breeze over the inner track, with the gelded son of Into Mischief covering the distance in 1:15.

Rodriguez: “He did it very good and did him everything we asked him to do. It looks like he's coming into the race in good shape. He's going a little longer this time, so we had him breeze six furlongs and gallop out seven eighths.”

Stay tuned for the preview later in the week.
