The Sharp Angles blog has provided valuable handicapping insights to readers all year, especially the past two weeks. Last Saturday, the Betmix Angler database highlighted Mr. Misunderstood ($11.20) in the River Cities H. and the week prior Mr. Dumas ($21.40) was the Sharp Angles play in the Commonwealth Turf.
This week we queried the Angler handicapping database for insights in the Red Smith Handicap at Aqueduct that drew an overflow field. We found that Jockey Current Year has been predictive in the graded turf marathons over the Aqueduct lawn.
The factor has pointed to 33% winners of this racetype including 3 of the past 6 Red Smith winners - Imaging ($8.30 to win), Mr Maybe ($6.80) and Village King ($11.80) last year.
Find this race in Betmix Birddog and use the Jockey Current Year slider to see which horse ranks first in this factor. That’s the Sharp Angles play.
