horsebuck$ roundup 28th January 2017

Another winning day in our Best Bet and Best Eachway firstly Sr8 Scarlet Rain ($6.50) jumped straight to the front and was taken on by Ice Bucket to the turn which dropped off and it was  left to  Badajoz ($2.30 fav) to take her on but she fought on like a tiger and was way too good. Secondly Br7 Sir Moments  ($7) aided by a beautiful ride by Damian Browne who saved every inch of ground along the fence from the jump, it was obvious a fair way from home that he was going to figure in the finish. Hit the front with about 100m to go and hung on for a good win under his big weight. MR3 Widgee Turf ($3) was a tad unlucky in his race , looked like he was playing tag team for a while in the straight, if not for that probably wins instead of running second. Mr6 Barthelona($7) what was that all about?  Long shots MR2 Gingie ($34)blew the start and that was the end of the section, Br3 Marau Daze ($67)he ran extremely well under his big weight for 7th, and there is definitely  a win in him very soon. We had 15 winners amongst our top four selections including San Telmo$2.30,Snitzcraft $1.50, Arkie $4.30, Sir Moments $7, Oberland $9, Pariah $5.50, Teaspoon $8.20, Dylan’s Rojo $4.40, Madame De Ban $3, Music Magnate $1.95, Embley $3.80, Scarlet Rain $6.50, Navagio $13.20, Portman $2.35, Tivaci $17 , a great result indeed, we get excited about our Best of section as our results over our short existence are outstanding. Our exotics this week were miniscule compared to some of our previous weeks with only four quinellas and one trifecta (MR4) , we did manage to secure the treble at the Sunny Coast Arkie, Sir Moments and Oberland with the middle leg being our best each way of the day paying $225.10 and the DD paying $58.10 and just missing the quaddie when The Ambassadore was edged out in the first leg. Entre Nous one of  our selections in MR8 at $21 ran second but was very unlucky he will win in the near future. Until 9am Saturday enjoy your and “GOOD LUCK ” to all. HORSEBUCK$
