horsebuck$ roundup 17th December

Last week we said  it had been 2 WEEKS since our previous BIG FIRST FOUR DIVIDEND ($4,000) and we needed to rectify that, well we did just that when we landed the FIRST FOUR in Flemington race 7  when FLYING LGHT($14) upset the short priced favourite GALLIC CHIEFTAN($2.11) with PRIMA($15) holding on for third and LONDON FOG($21) right on his hammer in fourth for a very healthy DIVIDEND ;Vic. $3,580.40,N.S.W. $3,834.70 and QLD. $2,907.80 & Trifectas VIC. $382,N.S.W. $427.50 and QLD. $324.40 and exactas Vic. $38.90,N.S.W.$23.90 and Qld. $34.20. Smiles all round for the first four players. Another trifecta Doomben race 7 Most Important1st. ($2.60),Too Good To Refuse 2nd.($2.88) and Miss Cover Girl 3rd($6) paying V. $19.20, N.S.W. $19.70,Qld $16 which were the three favourites in a small field, we think this was a pretty good dividend considering.   We weren’t far off the Quaddie at Randwick with CALANDA ($5) 1st leg and SENSE OF OCCASION ($43) 2nd leg saluting, we thought SIRBIBLE 2nd ($13) in the 3rd leg was going to kick and out do The Monstar after that horse  had sat three wide for the entire trip but he dug deep and prevailed by.8L, and in the final leg we had SABINO SPEED salute at $12.20, so we got done by .8l but that’s racing, hopefully we can go one better next week. MOHER($4.80) had a gutsy win  for us in our Best Bets, he was just far too good after leading most of the way and fought on strongly when tackled by More Than Fabulous at the distance and that also gave us a nice exacta result Vic. $20.80,N.S.W. $28.40,Qld. $33.30. CYLINDER BEACH($3.50) our best at Doomben ran a great  race for second but was no match for Man Of His Word. MOSSBEAT($7.50) at Flemington had every conceivable chance and with that weight(54.5k) was entitled to finish closer than her fourth placing.  Once again we had a bundle of winners in our top four 19 to be exact 6 on top Winning Rupert $1.10 (can we claim him(:), Moher $4.80, Kinschaci $4.60, Calanda $5, Boom Time $3.70 and Kenjorwood $5.20 and second in order we had 6 Ours To Keep $2.15, Emphasis $7.70, She Will Reign $1.90, Sabino Speed $12.20, Hijack Hussey $11.70 and Miss Wonderland $1.55 PLUS 7 more Sense Of Occasion $43.90, Most Important $2.60, Champ Elect $5.50, Destiny’s Kiss $5, Free Standing $10.60, King’s Authority $4.60 and Flying Light $14. Let me reiterate that all are not our on  top selection for the race, but every horse that is in our top four, in our opinion has a chance to succeed. There are a lot of players out there that like to play more than two horses per race, and week after week we come up with horses that are great odds in our four, so there is a play there for those so inclined. All in all a pretty good day and something for most. Winning Rupert is super smart and we can’t wait for him to get amongst the better races he wins under a throttle hold and runs time. There was one that went around on Saturday you can forget ever went to the races, the horse never got a run at any stage (through no fault of the jockey) got through late and just ran to the line, will include in next Saturdays comments. In the new year our format as I have said previously we will be putting a lot of emphasis on the quaddies and changing our best segment as well. So until 9AM. next Saturday have a great week and good luck. HORSEBUCK$
