First Post: Friday, August 26, 2011

zOMG. Can this be? The final Friday of August? Already? zOMG.

Free ones: Rundown…

Saratoga Race Course 4, 8, 9
Calder 2, 3, 8
Del Mar Thoroughbred Club 1, 2, 7

None of these is any way for Friday to say goodbye to August. Regrets!

Pay-side: Rundown…

Monmouth 5, 9, 12
Woodbine 3, 4, 9
Ellis 3, 4, 5
Arlington 5, 6, 8
Louisiana 4, 6, 7
Remington 1, 4, 8

Seriously zongo card this afternoon at Arlington Hts., Ill. When the cockroaches take over after we’ve departed the scene, they’ll unearth some artifact of the events of Friday, Aug. 26, 2011, A.D., at Arlington Park and transmit the following through their antennae: “This was a racing program!” Maybe. Also, substitute “Remington Park” for “Arlington Park” in the above fantasy and that also would be plausible. Thank you!

WMF Report: Disgracefully low for the 5½f at the Alb. Woodbine running strongly to (synthetic) type.

Canterbury 5½f, 6f
Ellis 6f
Fairmount 6f
Louisiana 6f
Monmouth 6f
Northlands 6½f

Woodbine 7f (WMF 8 )

Rally (Honourable Mention)
Albuquerque 5½f (WMF 30)
Woodbine 1 1/16m (WMF 26)

Nocturnal Submission: To Assiniboia for Race 5 (9:45 p.m. EDT / 6:45 p.m. PDT), where #9 Maligne Lake merits upset potential. …Canterbury’s fourth (9:28 / 6:28) has a Bonkers Box-type scenario as represented by #11 Bob the Bear and #9 Awma’s Diamonds. …Longshot madness also available in the sixth at Columbus (9:40 / 6:40); there, find some sanity in the form of #4 Holychoir, #2 Operator Error and #5 Annadacious. …

Take care. So long for now.
