Derby Day was a tough day for members which started in the opening race when Stratum Star was caught in the shadows in the post which cost after being left in front a long, long way from home. This result cost us 9 units after he was heavily backed from $9 (Top Fluc) into $6.50 and this set the tone for the rest of the day.
We picked up wins on Brazen Beau ($9), Deep Field ($1.70) and Atlanta Dream ($6) but finished the day a couple of winners short with the 3 winners from 17 races, well below our long-term strike rate.
We did back a few 2nd’s – obviously Stratum Star, Sandhill Flash and Kheleva but didn’t really look like getting our noses in front on the day which was a disappointing start to such a big week and a week we absolutely dominated last year.
The day’s result tallied a loss of 11.37 units, just under $570 betting $50 per unit.
We’re now onwards to Cup Day.
