August 22nd Louisiana Downs Recap
Both surfaces seemed to play fair.
Ramsey Zimmerman booted home a pair.
One top home on Saturday (Toccet Launch, $8.40). Longshot play of the day Precious Metal Man ran a big debut race to miss by a neck at 6.80-1. Had contenders firing all day including a pair of 2nd/3rd choice winners at 9-1.
We have a new Pick 4 graphic up and running. My suggested ticket on Saturday cost $50, and I ended up with 3 wins for the 2nd straight day. My best bet Mr. Hunter cost me the Pick 4 when he stalked, pounced, lead, and was eventually outfinished by Mr J B and Stan Michael L.
Lorenzo’s Love finished an improved 5th when trying the turf for the first time in the finale. Would give her another shot on the turf next time.
August 23rd Preview
Weather: Sunny. High 89.
Sunday’s 9-race card features four grass races and includes a Pick 6 carryover of $6,727.
Ladygoeasy (2nd race) is my best bet on the Sunday card. She goes for the hat trick and might lead these on a merry chase under leading rider Don Simington.
Kobe Doo (9th race) is my longshot play of the day. He disappointed on turf last time but showed turf prowess on July 10th.
