The Big Horse Handicapper provides a weekly handicapping column to the USTA covering races on Friday and Saturday. The USTA has given the Big Horse Handicapper a $100 mythical bankroll each week for wagering.
Hello Racing Fans!
Last week of our five selections we were unable to find the winners circle as we had two seconds, two thirds, and one out leaving us out in the cold as we cashed for only $14.00 of our $100.00 bankroll.
This weekend we are going to focus our plays at the Meadowlands and a play at Freehold Raceway on Friday afternoon.
Going into weekend #21 we have wagered $1,974 and have cashed for $1,650.
Good Luck everyone and enjoy your weekend.

Freehold Raceway Race #2
#1 Monet’s Lilly (3-1) was a winner in this class last weekend from the inside post and again should be very tough. #7 Gray Olives (9-2) battled hard from post 8 last time out and was a game runner-up to our choice here. This mare has already won 4 of 10 and loves this Freehold oval.
The Play: $10.00 Exacta Box 1-7 Cost: $20.00
The Meadowlands Racetrack Race #10
#1 Buzz Bomb (6-1) debuts for the Mark Ford stable after a big rally last time out against similar competition. He took his mark here as a 4-year-old last year and will pick up Simon Allard for this race. #6 Heidi Falls (7-2) just missed in both recent tries facing similar and again should be showing early speed.
The Play: $10.00 to win #1 and a $1.00 Trifecta 1/6/all and 1/all/6 Cost: $26.00

The Meadowlands Racetrack Race #2
Our longshot of the weekend is #6 Nick Fotiu (15-1). He was full of pace at the finish last time out closing in a :27:3 last quarter in his career debut. This was Miller’s choice over #2 & #4 and we could see improvement in just his second lifetime start.
The Play: $10.00 to win and place #6 Cost: $20.00
The Meadowlands Racetrack Race #11
#4 Statesman N (5-2) was flying at the finish last time out in this class when making his debut for trainer Mark Harder. He closed in a :26 last quarter and is the one to beat in here.
The Play: $20.00 to win #4 and a $7.00 Exacta 4-5 and 4-6 Cost: $34.00
