2011 Coaching Club American Oaks – It’s Tricky
By Michael Lipack for HorseRacingInside.com…
What a difference the day makes. After having a good yesterday at The Spa we, unfortunately, bombed today. Our entry pick of Seaside Retreat and King’s Command had plenty of action but ran 4th and 7th in the NBC televised race #9. The back class of Seaside Retreat and returning to races after three years caught our interest. Miguel Mena did have to check him but he failed to rally in the stretch. King’s Command swung 4-wide in the stretch but finished a well beaten fourth.
Our fifty dollar wage never had a chance.
In the guaranteed Pick-4 we were finished in the first leg. Our $37.50 ticket never got off the ground.
The winning combo was 11/4/5/5 and paid $362.00 for a $0.50 bet.
