Our Lay of the Day was Geelong R3 #5 Testability, who actually put in a great run. The winner fought hard and beat Testability by a neck. Sportsbet paid $1.25, Bookmakers paid $1.20 (for the Club) and on Betfair I got $1.31 after their commissions.
Our bets today were Canterbury R1 #5 Reincarnate, 1 Unit to Win. Got bottled up and had to fight to get out of the pack. Came home really well, but all too late. Finished 3rd. I heard Gai Waterhouse before the race saying that Cyrus Rocks in this race was an excellent winning chance. I think Gai sometimes over rates her horses. Poor old Cyrus Rocks was very one paced, and never accelerated to finish close enough to last.
And the second bet was at Geelong R4 #2 Alaska – 1 Unit Win. Jumped brilliantly. Had a great run through the race and just as he was winding up for the run home, ended up in a bumping duel with Usain Dane, which unbalanced him. Finished mid field.
A loss for the day of 1.50 Units (taking the Lay at Sportbet Price).
