WATCH AND WAIT

Posted by on 4/8/2014 10:33:21 PM

With several weeks left till the Kentucky Derby for online sports betting site players to dive in, let’s try to build a little bankroll with horses that should run back soon after having some bad trips.

Sweet Red Cat is not a superstar but she is in the good hands of Ron Ellis, has shown the versatility to win on dirt and grass and she was stakes placed last year so there is some quality.

She ran on April 3 at Santa Anita and had a horrible trip. The filly had to wait for room, was blocked at the 8th pole, still seemed to want to run but there was a wall of horses in front of her and her apprentice rider Van Dyke did not punished the runner.

The blood is there for Sweet Red Cat to mature with grace. One half brother won nearly $300,000 and the top sibling Soul City Slew took a Grade 2 and earned over $450,000.

Big Wags is from the other side of the tracks. He has been around the block and back and has won 11 of 54 starts mostly in the minor leagues. Trainer Bill Spawr, who I’ve known for decades, claimed this runner back early this month.

When he had this runner last year, Spawr won 3 of the 5 starts he had the runner and one loss was a throw out when he was sent marathoning at Pomona.

This is an upset vehicle.

Stake Hunter was troubled in his debut; he pushed the issue in his second start but wilted. Freshened through February and March, the son of Unusual Heat returned to action early this month but he drew the rail on the tricky hillside and was shuffled right out of the race. Trained by the steady Jeff Mullins, this gelding should be a juicy price the next time he shows in the entries.

Big Cazanova has had his chances to win but he has also been placed in some tough spots in South America. He finished first in a Group 1 in Peru last year but had his number taken down. He’s run well on dirt and on turf and Peter Miller had him in pretty good shape for his U.S. debut early this month.

He had trained steadily the his stateside bow including a 1:00 flat minute drill and enticed Corey Nakatani for his opener in this country.

Nakatani put him in the race from the sound of the bell and he stalked 3 wide off the pacesetter, took the lead between calls and finally had to settle for third money.

By monster sire Giant’s Causeway, Big Cazanova is out of 2-race winning dam that had some semblance of speed.

There is not reason in the world that Big Cazanova will not improve the next time he faces the starter.

On the other hands, be careful when First Strike returns to the races. Craig Lewis won a 6-way shake for the runner but she was no sound when she got back to the receiving barn and the claim was voided. Adam Kitchingman will have to try to patch her up.

Keep these runners in mind when trying to pad that bankroll.
