Handicapper Frank Cotolo picks horses with overlay potential to help your wagers pack a bigger punch.
The 2017 Delaware, Ohio fair meet runs from Sept. 17—Sept. 21, highlighted by America’s Pace, The Little Brown Jug. I will be sharing some personal investment opportunities for many events during the week’s race programs.
These “investment opportunities” are suggested contenders, horses I consider outsiders (though “press time” is well before the wagering takes place and no odds are guaranteed). They are selections I feel may offer value for win, place and show bets, as well as for exotic wagering.
After your personal handicapping is complete, take a look at the daily suggestions; hopefully, they will help your scores be bigger and better.
Sunday, Sept. 17
(1) Mountaineer Lady, a daughter of Manofmanymissions, whose crop we have been following for profits, is in a perfect spot with her inside post to break maiden staus with a good price for a small field.
(4) Shes A Hot Topic has a sound chance here at a price against two possibly strong favorites. Her sire, Big Bad John, is second only to Well Said in average earnings among the sires here, and “John,” of course, won the 2011 “Jug.”
(4) Dragon Me Down may be punished in the pools for a slow speed badge, which is a mistake we may be able to sensationalize upon. She has won a pair already and could get a trip good enough to beat the probable favorite and pay much better.
(3) Monarch Baur will be under rated by the betting public, as they over rate the obvious Back The Bank due to his post, driver and earnings. “Baur” has been in the money 13 of 19 starts with seven wins and should have a major role in the top three.
Luck to all of you using any of these as you so choose. We will be back for Monday’s (September 18) program with more choices and a log on how we are doing for the week.
