Advantageous position

At 9h45, on November 1, 2018 By Christian Gendron

On November 1st at Saratoga in the 9th race, a Win and Placed bet on No 1 J-S Miss Carolyn, an Exacta on 1 with 2,3,4 and a Trifecta on 1 with 2,3,4,6. No 2 Expresso Love seems to be the fastest horse at the start as the majority of them come back from behind and have just broken their maiden at Vernon Down, a 7/8 mile track in 1:58:4. But she did not have any opposition, despite a last half mile in 1 minute, which is slow on this kind of track. Nobody came near her and I think that’s why she was brave. No 3 Blessingindisguise has just finished second but behind the winner. She was on her second start in three days and will be on her third start in seven days, which is a lot. She seems to often adopt the same No 1 strategy and this one is superior to her. No 1 J-S Miss Carolyn comes out of the Jim DeRue Memorial Series where the competition was much higher than this class. This mare has the most gains and in this position, Steeven Genois should be comfortable to make his attack when the time comes.

Proposed bet: November 1st, Saratoga, race 9

Win and Place: 1

Exacta: 1 with 2,3,4

Trifecta: 1 with 2,3,4,6


  • Win: Choose a horse that will win the race.)
  • Place: Choose a horse that will finish first or second.
  • Exacta: Choose 2 horses that will finish first and second, in selected order.
  • Trifecta: Choose 3 horses that will finish first, second and third, in selected order
