Default Contest Picks Wed. August 30th
CONTEST PICK #1
6TH ELLIS PARK---#9 GOLDEN HARE 6/1 {Turf Only}
I like to bet Ackerman horses at Ellis Park, 11 of 28 {39%} +.51 R.O.I.. He is 4 of 11 {36%} in Turf Sprint races, and Dropping in purse 11 of 45 {24%} +.44 R.O.I.. I'm not sure but, I believe B. Barnett has cashed quite a ferw tickets on this horse. The Dam: Bugs Rabbit throws runners. Her babies are 31 of 97 {32%} total and 3 of 5 {60 %} in Turf Sprints, all in the past 365 days. The outside post may help odds somewhat, The horses coming out of the 9 hole are winning 12% in these Turf Sprint races. This horse is best in Speed, Pedigree, and Trainer.

Good Luck Today,
KGreen

Delaware Park - Race 3 - Wednesday
#1 Homer The Brave

*This horse is dropping in class after a bad showing two weeks ago. Looks to be a two horse race and I'm hoping all the money goes on #5 Seeking Flight.

Pick 1
Saratoga Race 7
#2 Veritable Is coming off a maiden score, but did showing a good closing kick while sitting just off the pace. This 4 year old colt has improved in his last two runs since being stretched out on the turf and looks to be perfectly placed to score right back for the red hot Bobby Frankel barn

Pick 2
Del Mar Race
#7 Marsh Side

Cut back in distance and class drop should help. Hopefully will give trainer first win in 16 starts for ELP meet.
