Monmouth Park Picks, 5/27/2017

Got a lot of DM’s while last Saturday’s card was playing out. Definitely enjoyed the opinionated discussions, thoughts, Monmouth Park and horse talk. I would be lying if I didn’t say my main focus was not on the triple crown trail as my good buddy Steve P and I take a $10,000+ run into the Belmont Stakes from just the two big races. I also did not watch any of the Sunday card live, so put a good amount of race replay work in.

I called on Tuesday to my buddy Pat that management is so bad, there is no shot the card is left entirely on turf today. Early on in my academia, I was taught you have to put yourself in patients shoes to understand decisions and thoughts. If it was someone with knowledge, on their 2nd biggest draw of the year it’s on, however, I’m not making the decision, and I seem to be in the minority. We shall see, I will adjust my picks accordingly if my father does not ask me to pick him up at 6am to depart for a 12:50 card J

Lastly, tread lightly on the early portion of the card and pound late. Early on there is a ton of question marks, some atrocious horses and very questionable drops, layoffs etc. It’s a guessing game to say the least. Don’t blow your load before you get to what matters.
