Vic's Best Bet:
Sunday, April 20:
I found a few plays for Sunday’s card, however the feature looks to be an excellent betting affair. Twelve older horses prepping for bigger and better things later on. Five of the players have earnings over $200,000 - one of those is MR BOWLING who has been prepping well at California’s Golden Gate and has continued to do so here at Emerald, from the looks of the morning tab here there’s much to like and I love those breezes…59 4/5 and 48 flat…..Again “B” means horse did it on his own, no urging whatsoever.
Post is of some concern however this rider gets them out of there in good fashion. Over the years I’ve preached, “route horses with speed sprinting fresh." Less conditioning and they have early foot.
Trainer doesn’t have the best record coming off lay-offs, however it’s the horse we’re playing.
