Delta Downs Jackpot Betting – Casiguapo Wins The Battle Of The Two-Year-Olds

Posted by on 2/5/2014 4:54:07 AM

Sports betting players should be getting ready for 2014 in regards to horse racing, and they’ll get a peek at next year’s challengers on Saturday. The Grade-3 Delta Downs Jackpot in Louisiana is one of the top races for two-year-olds and is run over 1 1/16 miles on dirt, and the winner of this race should get some consideration for their three-year-old campaign. Casiguapo will beat the field to the wire on Saturday.

What: Horse Betting
When: Saturday, November 23rd, post time TBA
Where: Delta Downs, Vinton, LA
Pick: Casiguapo

Big Bazinga won his maiden in September at Woodbine, and then finished second to Ami’s Holiday in the Grade-3 Grey Stakes at the same track. Both were on synthetic surfaces, so this will be his first race on dirt. A good finish here would help this gelding take a lot of momentum into 2014.

Casiguapo hasn’t finished lower than fourth in four career starts, winning his maiden at Calder Race Course in July, and he is coming off a fourth in the Grade-1 Champagne in October. This colt has never run over a mile, and he’ll need a better closing kick than he had at the Champagne to get into the top three on Saturday. Still, he is an intriguing option for horse betting players.

Coastline has two wins and a runner-up finish in his first three starts, winning his maiden on the second try and then coming in first in the non-graded Street Sense at Churchill Downs in late October. Like Casuguapo, this colt hasn’t run more than a mile, so it’ll be interesting to see how he fares down the stretch.

Flat Gone has run at this distance, and it resulted in a fifth in the Grade-1 FrontRunner at Santa Anita last month. But in his last start, this colt posted a career-best third in the non-graded Jean Lafitte. He could be a bit of a darkhorse in this race, but at least he has the experience of running 1 1/16 miles and he should offer decent odds.

Mighty Brown finished second in the Jean Lafitte and all five of his starts have come at a mile. The Jean Lafitte was his first start on dirt and he did quite well. He has yet to win his maiden in three tries, but he is a colt that always seems to be around at the end.

Rankhasprivileges won his maiden in his first attempt last month at Keeneland on a synthetic surface, but it was at 1 1/16 miles, so the distance shouldn’t be a problem. Now it is just a matter of whether this colt can step up his game in the face of tougher competition. He was looking good on dirt at Churchill Downs earlier this week, so keep that in mind as you’re making your horse betting picks.

Rise Up has three wins and a second in five starts, but his worst result came in the Grade-3 Iroquois at Churchill Downs in September. He did beat out Mighty Brown and Flat Gone in the Jean Lafitte, so he does have an edge over a couple of these horses, but can he replicate that on Saturday at Delta Downs? The speed is there, but that finish at the Iroquois is a little worrying.

Roman Unbridled finished fourth in the Jean Lafitte, and he has yet to finish higher than third in three starts, two of which were maiden attempts. That means this colt probably won’t be too high in the horse betting odds for this race, and he hasn’t run over a mile, which is another strike against him.

Rum Point has run in three straight Grade-1 races, failing to finish higher than fourth in any of them, and he is coming off a disappointing 12th in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile earlier this month. Based on those results, it is tough to consider him a favorite, but his handlers must see something in this colt to continue entering him in graded-stakes events.

Whyruawesome rounds out the field after finishing fifth in an allowance race, and his results have been going downhill since winning his maiden on his first attempt back in August. If we see that version of this gelding, he could make some noise on Saturday. But if his current form continues, Whyruawesome won’t break the top three.

How It Will Play Out

Casiguapo has done well in his graded-stakes races so far, and he’ll pick up a win in your online betting book on Saturday at Delta Downs.
