Happy New Year to everyone lets all have a safe, happy and prosperous 2017. Best Bets; Loyalty Man, aided by a gun ride by Schofield, extricated him from behind the leader in the straight and although he wanted to duck in when going between Gold Ambition and Duca Valentinois proved way too good. We thought his early quote of $11 was amazing but his actual starting price of $7.50  was also  a pleasant surprise. Beau Rada ($5.50) what can we say, had a beautiful run behind the speed,travelled up behind them on the corner and just when he needed the run to appear with his 60.5kgs so he could build a full head of steam it didn’t, he drove late to just miss. New Year could have been even bigger than it was (:. Appalachian Annie ($5.70) at the top of the straight you were entitled to think she was going to win or at the very least run a place but she was swamped late to be photo finished out of third, she did try very hard tho, no complaints. Real Princess ($26) she was there at the 150m looking every possibility to run a place but weakened to be beaten 5.1L, we think the class might have been a little strong. Do not disregard her next time she steps out in a slightly easier race. War Jet ($51) our longshot, after getting a nice run just off the speed he ran well to finish 3.8L from the winner,we thought he was well weighted in this event but just keep in mind this bloke has a very good second up record.  Another 15 winners in  our top 4 selections BR4 Winning Rupert $1.20, BR5 Ours To Keep $3.60,BR6 Most Important ($2.60), BR7 Cylinder Beach ($5.20), SR1 From Within ($1.40), SR2 Spending To Win ($7), SR3 Improvement ($5.50), SR4 Atom Eve ($3), SR6 Loyalty Man ($7.50), SR9 In Her Time ($3.50), MR1 Tulip($2.30), MR2 Crystal Fountain ($8.50), MR4 Prima ($13.20), MR5 Fuhryk ($3.80) and MR6 Roman Fizz ($14.30) . FOR NEW VISITORS TO OUR WEB SITE THE REASONS FOR SHOWING THESE NUMBER OF WINNERS EACH WEEK HAS BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED ON PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF HORSEBUCK$ ROUNDUP. No quaddie, big trifectas or first fours this week but we did manage to get 4 small trifectas  BR7 Cylinder Beach, Man Of His Word, Hopfgarten Vic.$72.80,N.S.W. $63.70, Qld. $64.30, SR1 From Within, Invader, Chaffeur V. $6.50, N. $6.90, Q. $7.20, SR9 In Her Time, Raiment,Shahrazad V. $27.40, N. $23.40, Q. $26.70, MR5 Fuhryk, Widgee Turf, Gratwick V. $46.10, N. $38.10, Q. $47.50  and 6 quinellas & exactas BR7 Cylinder Beach, Man Of His Word Q/ V. $11.90, N. $10.20, Q. $11.60, E/ V. $26.70, N. $25.60, Q. $25.80, SR1 From Within, Invader $2.60, $3.20, $3.10 / $4, $3.90, $3.70, SR3 Improvement,Miss Wonderful $15.80, $14.90, $14.60/ $30.30, $30.60, $31.10, SR9 In Her Time, Raiment $3.10, $3.20, $3/ $6.80, $7.20, $5.30, MR1 Tulip, Pure Emotion $3.20, $3.30, $2.90 / $5.30, $5.80, $5.10, MR2 Crystal Fountain, Witches $29.50, $31.50, $37 / $53.40, $34.40, $76.10. The old saying that little fish are sweet is true but it is the bigger catch that we strive for each week. From next month we will be shortening up our best bets to two selections and our best each way to one and one longshot will remain. We have had some good success in this area and think that by tightening it up a notch we can deliver even better results. So until 9am on Saturday we hope everyone has a great week. HORSEBUCK$
