Los Al Futurity: Analysis and selections


Nothing to see here... Move along...
Hmmm. From the Penn National overnight:

Penn National overnight



Just sayin'...

Blindly betting 50-1 or higher at Tampa Bay Downs has been a lucrative angle early in the meet. Through the first eight days of racing at Tampa there have been seventy-nine runners that went off at 50-1 or higher. Three have won [$106.00, $102.20, $106.40 - and that's not counting the 50-1 nose loser and 46-1 winner this past Saturday]. Three $100+ winners in eights days?!? That's a number most tracks won't see through an entire meet - and a result that has produced a 99% ROI with a "bet the 50-1+ horses" angle.

The, er, uh, "interesting" note is that it seems that not all bettors were stymied by these longshots... For instance, on 12/10 some Pick 3 players seem to have been miraculously in tune with the sequence that ended with a $106.00 winner. Check the charts below and compare the Pick 3 to the Daily Double!

Tampa P3, R7,8,9 12/10/14

FYI: Here's what a 52-1 shot's PPs look like:

Three Timer PPs Tam R9 12/10/14

...And for comparison's sake: Check the Pick 3 sequence [and compare to the Daily Double] just three days later:

Tampa P3, R8,9,10 12/13/14

Oh, and the savvy betting seems to have continued into Saturday 12/13 - as DRF's Doug McCoy wrote: "The longshot parade continued in the seventh race, where Striking Hight ($22) outgamed 50-1 shot Pyrite Personal by a nose to give leading trainer David Hinsley his fourth win of the meeting. That exacta paid a paltry $667.20."
