Interesting day on tap.

Atlantic City opens! Boyzzzzz! Now and for the duration, it will be included gratis among your free ones. Thus, for a limited time, you’ll have four tracks to pick and choose from: Belmont, Calder, Hollypark, Frantic City.

Here’s today’s complimentary stabs:

Frantic City 2, 3, 6
Calder 2, 6, 8
Hollypark 5, 6, 8

Well, as is often the case, we picked the right race. However, as is even more often the case, the longshot winner escaped. Curses! Specifically, Race 2 at Calder and its 56-1 shocker. Ah, well. It happens. Eight chances remain on the afternoon.

On the pay-side:

Keeneland 2, 6, 7
Pimlico 3, 5, 7
Golden Gate 2, 4, 7
Lone Star 4, 8, 9

Still tough slogging at Pimlico, though Keeneland looks healthy again. The ’Gate is the ’Gate, but the Lone Star rarely disappoints. Indeed, the late-double shown tonight in Tejas could be a truly zongo payoff. Check it!

WMF Report: Still good on the front at 7f at Chas. Town. …

Thank you, and take care. See you at Frantic City. Six good races there today, which is more than you normally get in a week of Aqueduct. Maybe Belmont’s opening tomorrow will resuscitate the NYRA action.
