June 20th recap
Edge to stalk and pounce types on the Louisiana Downs main once again. Turf played fair as the best horses won.
Leading rider Don Simington followed up Friday’s hat trick with three more wins on Saturday.
Hat trick for Ramsey Zimmerman included a pair with trainer Bret Calhoun. Curt Bourque booted home a pair, and Mike Burgess saddled two winners on the day.
My Best Bet Tee At Night sat a stalking trip as expected, but he came up empty in the lane at 4-1.
My Longshot Play of the Day Kipper In Space just missed in the finale at 7-1.
June 21st preview
Weather: Sunny. High 95.
Sunday’s 9-race card features three grass races, and there is a small Pick 6 carryover of $1,799.
Black Giraffe (race 2) is my Longshot Play of the Day. He scurries up the class ladder after a sharp wire job. Versatile type meets other speed and should stalk the pace under hustling apprentice Anna Roberts.
Big Al’s Madraar is my Best Bet on Sunday. He exits a pair of sharp local efforts and projects a ground saving stalking trip.
