Mixed Bag of Weekend Results + HUGE Week Coming Up!

The good news is that the Super Screener top long shot picks Monster Bea and Hollywood Hideaway finished 2nd and 3rd at odds of 19-1 and 13-1, respectively, and here’s what the Super Screener had to say about that pair:

The bad news is that the winner, Fire Away, got the perfect trip again to score the win and we did not cover that one in the win spot in suggested wagers.  Glad to hear some of you did include him to win and also included the Super Screener top long shots for a great score considering the $.50 Trifecta paid $485.

The Chad Brown pair of A Lot and Night Prowler came up empty and finished in the back half of the field.  Seems this barn is getting ready for the upcoming Gulfstream Park meet with its turf horses.

Oakland Stakes

Kicking ourselves on this one as it was “haveable”.  The Screener faded one of the favorites, I Will Score, pointing out that one as a Vulnerable Favorite. Our Top Value pick, Mach One Rules misses the win by just a nose at odds of nearly 6-1 and our Top Board Hitter pick, Star Student, did his job by finishing 4th at odds of 14-1.  It was Right Hand Man, however, that won on the day and the Screener knocked this one pretty good for all the gaps in his PP’s and the recent 4-month layoff but the top barn and strong works should have been respected more.


Si Cima Stakes

Oh, what could have been!  A Super Screener “A” horse wins the race and the Top Long Shot pick, Calamity Jane, finished in a dead heat for 4th with our other top rated filly, Reine Dex Animaux at 43-1. Even Dontmesswithjoanne obliged with a 3rd place finish. But, what got into 2nd place finisher, Pera, the 58-1 shot that nearly went wire to wire?  Looking back at that horse there was no conceivable explanation and the Super Screener would have never ranked that one higher than near the bottom no matter how many times we would analyze this race. Tough beat.



The predicted pressured pace set up materialized but it didn’t phase Painting Corners of the white hot Peter Miller barn as he dueled throughout and then went on to win impressively as the favorite.  Other top rated Screener horses completed the Trifecta but those top three finishers comprised the top three favorites which resulted in a small payoff for our suggested Trifecta wager.  


Top Super Screener win pick, Zero Zee disappointed and despite the swift pace could not muster a top half of the field finish.


Thankfully, Graded Stakes action comes back in a big way this holiday weekend highlighted by the G1 Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs and the G1 Hollywood Derby on closing weekend at Del Mar.  Aqueduct has a couple of Graded Stakes this weekend as well so plenty of races to choose from and we’ll sort through it all to find the best wagering propositions.


My best to you and your families this Thanksgiving Weekend and I am most grateful for your continued patronage of the Super Screener.


Until next weekend, “Go Fast, Feast Well and Win”
