Welcome to Trifecta Thursday where I will attempt to pick the winners each week. This week we go to Camarero Race Track in Puerto Rico. John Velázquez, together with Willie Martínez, Norberto Arroyo, Roberto Alvarado, José Vélez, and Carlos Hiram Márquez, join the ranks of outstanding Puerto Rican jockeys in competition throughout the United States. Now that you have your fun fact of the day, let’s take a look at the races.
When: Thursday, January 30
Where: Camarero Race Track
RACE 2 3:30pm
2. Kodiak Kutie (J.Sanchez) 7/5
4. Notably (P.Gonzalez) 5/2
Kodiak has placed 5 out of 7 career races, hence the favorite. I like Notably over Borrego Park because I have this thing with horses with the name “Park.”
RACE 3 4:00pm
3. Remember Lynn (H.Berrios) 7/2
1. Ramonita M (J. C. Diaz) 8/5
5. La Codiciada (E. Castro) 5/2
Three horses are from Florida, the other two Kentucky. Given there is no clear favorite I’m going with a Florida Trifecta. No offense Kentucky, you still have college basketball bragging rights this year.
