R4 1-5

Got a story about this race. I came down to the walking ring to check out #1 X Y Jet who is a huge roan & the chalk in this race. I also like #5 Quiote a little bit. As they were about to enter the track I told Irad Ortiz, the rider on Quiote, to have a safe ride. The trainer Georgina Baxter heard what I said & she said "thanks, I think we have a shot here."

Rarely do trainers or jocks say anything to the public like this & since I liked Quiote a little I played 10 WPS on him.  So X Y Jet & #6 Rays'warrior got into a wicked speed duel going the 1st quarter in .21 & burned each other out allowing Ortiz to close with Quiote to win going away by about 3 or 4. He paid $48.60; 12.00 & 17.80 for show because X Y Jet ran out of the money & the bridge jumpers were having heart attacks.

So I went to the rail near the winner's circle & made eye contact with Georgina Baxter & congratulated her. She came over & asked if I play Tampa Bay Downs & I told her rarely because I have lousy results capping that track. She told me she had another horse that had a good chance in the last race if I was interested.

So I played the filly R True Sensation, she ended up being the chalk & won by a neck. She only paid $4.60 but it was a decent $48 exacta.

So I didn't know much about Trainer Georgina Baxter but checked her out when I got home.

Turns out she has taken over the horses that were in the barn of crooked South Florida trainer Ralph Ziade. Ziade can't get a license down here because he's been caught numerous times juicing his horses.

So now I'm a fan of Georgina Baxter & she has another running Monday @ GP in Race 3 Oh My Warrior with Paco Lopez riding. This one looks like he has a stalking style & I'll give him a close look tomorrow. 

BTW Baxter's record this year is 14-4-3-2

Great stuff Midnight. I put a little money in my Twin Spires account for Oh My Warrior
 I hope we hear "Here they come spinning out of the turn. It is Oh My Warrior by 10 lengths and increasing his huge lead with every stride.

Wow that's awesome midnight. Always nice to get some intel at the track, esp from a trainer. Good luck with the horses, I used to go to woodbine once or twice a year when i lived in TO. Never won much but....

She had another winner today in the 6th as the chalk paying 6 bucks.

Baxter doesn't have another runner until Pegasus day on Saturday in R3 #6 Pay Any Price ML 6-1. She'll have to beat #3 & 4 who luck tough in the race.

She's wining at 31% for the year wining 6 of 15
