“Off the Charts” Trip Notes

Horses to Watch for AGameofSkill.com Visitors

Aqueduct

Big Gillette (AQU Race #4 – 3/12/16 – #2 – 1 mile and 70 yards dirt) –  Kendrick Carmouche had the assignment for Rudy Rodriguez and his mount bobbled badly at the start and he recovered quickly to assume the lead and set the pace. The pace was quick and he tired down the lane to finish 3rd. A clean trip makes him hard to catch next out.

Send it In (AQU Race #5 – 3/12/16 – #1 – 1 mile and 70 yards dirt) –  Manny Franco in the irons for Todd Pletcher. This son of Big Brown stumbled at the break, and immediately picked up his game and set a solid pace. He was the winner of this race, and you’ll want to keep him on your “play right back” list as he showed incredible maturity recovering and getting his mind on business.

Best Play (AQU Race #7 – 3/12/16 – #2 – One mile dirt) –  Manny Franco in the saddle, and his mount was knocked around quite a bit after the gate break. He recovered, and showed a nice closing punch going three-wide around the far turn. I like the rider, and the trip shows good promise for players at the windows next up.

Gulfstream Park

Skippy is Back (GP Race #2 – 3/12/16 – #5 – 6f dirt) –  Vicente Gudiel was the pilot, and filly was pin-balled around leaving the starting gate. The rider got his filly to settle nicely and made a very nice four wide move around the entire far turn to show good late punch at (7-1).  You may see some nice value here next time she takes the track.

Put It Back Jack (GP Race #5 – 3/12/16 – #6 – 6f dirt) –  Eddie Castro’s mount was bumped around leaving the gate and pressed a solid pace. He was a “beaten favorite” this day after drawing off by three lengths, and punters from around the globe like to hammer runners looking for some pay back next up off this angle.
