    Not sure what I should do in race 9 at Churchill. There's an E2 horse here with the #5 English Dancer, but the race has been taken off the turf, so I'm not sure if I should play it or not.

    Make that 2-4-4 out of 12 starters now as this last one finished 3rd.

    The good thing is, I have four more races on tap and there's an E2 horse in every one of them.

    Race 10 at Churchill - #1 Rompicapo
    Race 5 at Del Mar - #1 Secreto Primero
    Race 8 at Del Mar - #4 How About Zero
    Race 9 at Del Mar - #6 Mithqaal

    All 4 of them are E2 horses. $10 to win and $10 to place on them all.

    E2 horses are now 2-5-4 out of 13 starters this weekend after yet another 2nd place finish by one of them.

    Why do I bother playing anything else but those types?

    Well played sir, thanks for the tip on the Brazilian pony. Does Brazil usually have good racing historically, I don't feel like I've seen many but obv I'm a newbie when it comes to this.

    We don't see too many Brazilian horses up here in North America, but that's a combination of lesser racing, as well as them being southern hemisphere horses typically (some are bred in NA then sold to SA owners). Our year up here for the age groups with the ponies is Jan-Dec. Down there they are July-June I do believe.

    Any slight lean for the 6 at Del Mar. Got the itch today. Already in on the others you posted.

    Nah, I don't have the PP's available to me for the race, bud. I'll have a look at race 7 at Del Mar if you want, though.

    Too late.

    I'm not betting it myself just because these are 2 year-olds and maidens at that. You never know what you'll get with them. But the #5 Cascade Rock (4/1 morning line) has a few things to like about it. An early speed type cutting back in distance. Nice race last time out to finish a length back after getting caught between horses late. His race two back also looks good on paper, as he was up close to a fairly good pace at this Del Mar track and was only nipped at the wire by Sonneteer, who you may remember from a couple of nice runs in the Derby prep season this year. This #5 horse might be the class of the field today and has competed well in similar races in the past. Highest last out Brisnet figure in the field. Pedigree that's all turf. Has a top jock in Nakatani. Etc., etc.

    @BluntTrauma21

    I just made a $10 bet on him to win. I can't feel good about giving you betting advice without taking a shot myself.

    These are 3 year-olds and above. Not 2 year-olds. Makes me feel a little better about betting this guy since he won't be as immature as I initially thought.

    Don't worry about it, bud. It's only a few bucks if I lose and he's sitting at 5/1 if he does win. Well worth the risk. Besides, I've been doing a great job of losing money on my own anyways. Not so much today. But yesterday was atrocious for me.

    Went a little too quick early dueling with that other horse on the lead otherwise he probably would have won for us. Oh well. Was worth a shot.
