Last Week I spent two days looking at videos on handicapping. I know that from these two days I did not watch, listen or find a trainer handicapper. All were speed players trying to ad in a positive trainer stat to their speed play or exotic bet. If they were trainers players they would have said I bet trainers. Mark Casse and Patrick Husbands at Woodbine in sprint races over the past 4 years went 520-238-46%. This year on their first 40 sprint races at Woodbine they have been in the exacta 20 times for a 50% strike rate. Today Saturday the 9th at Woodbine Trainer Mark Casse and Jockey Patrick Husbands have 3 sprinters.
Race 3 # 9 Blackout 6/1
Race 5 # 5 Hanalei Moon 7/2
Race 6 # 4 Closer Still 6/1
For The Triple Crown I will root for Justify at 4/5.
