Bet On Horse Races - Youngsters to Watch

Posted by Blake Frazier on 1/15/2013 6:03:07 PM

This is the sports betting time of the year when hope springs eternal for trainers and owners that have promising youngsters and it appears there is no shortage of talented runners aiming for the Triple Crown road.

Sometimes in this game one can think too much and not see what is right in front but in this case it’s okay to Overanalyze because this is one talented runner.

The Todd Pletcher student debuted last summer at Saratoga as the 3-5 chalk and promptly dismissed his rivals. He was fried in a duel in his next race but made amends for the defeat by taking the Grade 2 Futurity at Belmont.

Shipped to Churchill, the son of Dixie Union never seemed comfortable with the surface in Kentucky and just did not fire but again he responded by winning the Remsen by a hard-fought nose with a solid 99 Beyer.

He has been given time to mature and has trained at Palm Meadows this winter. One of the best things he has going for him is his stellar pedigree.

Go deep in the horse betting bloodlines and one will find stakes winner and near $250,000 earner Irish Cloud.

His dam was unraced but the dam is kin to a pair of runners that banked 6 furlongs.
And his half sister Meadow Breeze was just a sprinter, but she won the Grade 1 Matron and banked over $300,000.

The future is bright for this near $400,000 purchase and he will likely kick off his run for glory at Aqueduct in March in the Gotham.

Just like in sports, you have to stay healthy in this game and connections that are patient are often rewarded with victories down the line.

Enter Palace Malice, who ran well in the debut but was clear of the show horse for fun. The son of Curlin won his next start going away as chalk and considering the stamina of the sire, he has a right to run all day long.

The runner was on track to try the stakes in the summer but he had sore shins and was stopped on. This maneuver could be seen as a blessing in disguise if this guy runs to his potential.

Capo Bastone had some rough trips last year but he showed the ability to compete and that goes a long way. He was getting to the winner in the Breeders Cup Juvenile despite the track playing toward speed. He has a right to be a serious player this spring.

And Doug O’Neill may once again be loaded for a Triple Crown run as he conditions Goldencents, who is owned in part by Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.

This guy has only lost once and that was when he had to ship 3,000 miles and was troubled to boot. He is already battle tested as he has run 4 times at 4 different tracks.  And the way he extended his winning margin when he won the Delta Jackpot going 8 and a half furlongs suggests he will thrive with more real estate.

As the weeks and months unfold, more online betting contenders will come out of the woodwork.
