At Woodbine Race Track trainer Mark Casse and jockey Patrick Husbands in sprint races over the past 4 years have went to post 520 times and were in the exacta 238 times for a 46% exacta strike rate. That is about 60 exacta’s hits a year in sprint races from around 130 sprint races a year.
Casse and Husbands are a daily play for me at Woodbine. I know Casse and Husbands will have around two sprinters a day to handicap. I could just bet them all. This is my style of play at the beginning of meets. I bet them all or almost all.
Casse and Husbands are a key bet meaning I will key their horse for first and second and use two or three fillers for the exacta top and bottom depending on field size. The fillers with Casse and Husbands are with the favorite, the second favorite and the third favorite for many races. These odds levels insure cashing a bunch of exactas.
Boxing manager and trainer Emmanuel Stewart trained 41 world champions. He said “We are not hitting baseballs here we are hitting people in the head”. I thought he was talking to me about Woodbine with Casse and Husbands exacta sprint stats.
Woodbine opened April 21. There have been 7 race cards when Casse and Husbands went to post in sprint races 15 times. This Graph shows how Mark Casse and Patrick Husband cashed since opening day. 15 Sprint races with 7 in the exacta for a 47% hit rate which is right around their four year average.
Saturday Casse and Husbands have one sprint race, R8 # 3 Closer Still.
