I know there are much better cards across the country to play tomorrow but something @ Calder caught my attention.

Owner/Trainer Dennis Manning has won 4 of 6 races with horses he owns @ Tampa Bay Downs. On Saturday he ships (actually they probably just took the turnpike) one to Calder for the 150k Calder Derby. #1 Raging Lion won a cheap 20k maiden race in his only try by 5 lengths. The comment was "Much the best." He goes a 1/16th further tomorrow & the morning line is 12-1. There are no superstars in this race & Angel Serpa makes the trip to ride this one. I think he's got a shot at getting a check.

In the 11th race, there's another TB gelding #7 Wiki who ran a good 2nd in his last @ GP as the chalk. Trained by Jaime Ness & ridden by Serpa he shortens to 7F from a mile. Now #8 Abdel's Ghost will be his biggest competition but these 3 are certainly a good start to a late Pick3/DD exotics.

Hoping that Howe Great controls the lead & Castellano has enough at the end to hold off the calvary charge in the Bluegrass. In the Arkansas Derby I'm giving # 9 Sabercat an across the board play.

BOL to all tomorrow....

Very nice write up Midnight.  There is amazing value in  betting cheap maidens moving up in class.  They are constantly overlooked in the window.

The 4th, 6th, and 7th place finishers in Raging Lion's last race finished 1-2-3 today in a 7f race today on the dirt. As you said, Manning has done a great job at Tampa picking his spots this meet. GL

Thanks for the info Midnight.  I'll be tailing you on those.  But I just jinxed Sabercat by picking him in Mikey's thread.  Good luck to all.

Txs Bull & that's a real good point sp about Raging Lion......

Weather looks like an issue this morning. Very heavy winds & rain is expected.Hope it stays on the turf for the Calder Derby but it's pretty nasty in SFLA right now.....

Weather guy just said the rain is just about done for the day, hopefully you'll get lucky and they'll keep it on the turf

When these races are over, don't forget the card @ Charlestown tonight. Julien, Javier, Bravo, Garcia & Maragh all have mounts in the $1 Million Classic.

Well the Calder Derby was taken off the turf but Manning didn't scratch Raging Lion. I wish he would have done so. He got bogged down on the rail & never made a move.

Wiki losing was a tough beat. Calder's strip is deep & gets "cuppy" so shippers don't always fire. Wiki ran well  but just didn't have enough Saturday.

Box that and you've got a $1,600+ tri and close to a 13k super!

Pretty sick when you think about it.
