horsebuck$ roundup 10th December

Goathland flew the banner for the best bets last Saturday with a very easy win at $3.30, he sat on the speed and really never looked like loosing. Dodging Bullets ran extremely well for 2nd ($5), when he pushed through the gap at the distance I thought he was home until the gay deceiver Aurum Spirit came steaming down the outside to snatch the prize. Estaminet was a very poor run indeed never at any stage did she look likely, most disappointing. Painte tried hard with a place looking a possibility near the line but couldn’t improve on 4th. Bidii Babe, maybe the wide gate hoodoo told but she loomed as a winning chance with 100m to go and bloused late for 4th. Tiyatraloni tried her heart out she was still in front with 50m to go but was swamped late to be photo finished out of third , maybe it was one week too late for her. Once again we had  12 winners in our top 4 but only four on top this week and 5 our second pick. On top Colisimo $2.50, Chaffeur $5, Zumbelina $2.40 and Goathland $3.30 and second Rock On Ivy $5.60,Girl Sunday $6.10, High Midnight $5.50, Lyuba $4.30 and Khaki $3.70. We had 5 quinellas and 5 exactas, Rosehill races 1,2,7 and Flemington races 5 and 6 and the extra double at Flemington, Divine Mr. Artie and Goathland (our best bet) paying $16.30, only one trifecta and first four for a small dividend in a five horse field( with our top two finishing in order) $18.30 T and F4 $29 race one Rosehill. We could have had three or four trifectas with just a little more luck but that’s racing. It’s been two weeks now since our last big first four and trifecta and a few since our last quaddie we hope to rectify that this weekend, may the racing gods smile upon us, so until 9am on Saturday enjoy the rest of your week and “GOOD LUCK” to all horsebuck$ followers.
