UPDATE - 5:45pm - I hope you were betting today. We hit the PP6 again today, that is the 11th time we have cashed during this Monmouth meeting for a profit of $175.05. Today the PP6 paid $52.20 but we had it twice for $104.40 thanks to an exacta in race 5. Over the last 15 race days we have hit the PP6 SEVEN times for a profit of $408.65!
This Saturday marks the return of three day racing weekends at Monmouth. This weekend racing will include Monday, which is Columbus Day. The rest of the meeting will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays until Breeders' Cup Weekend of November 4 and 5.
•Saturday's card is rather unusual in that five of the first six races are $5,000 claimers, either 5000B or 5000N2L.
•It appears that turf racing is finished for the year.
•Purses have dipped significantly for the remaining cards.
•Joe Bravo is not riding at Monmouth the rest of the way. He has been riding in New York and the other day he took off of his mounts and two of his horses won at huge prices of $48 and $51.
•Trainer Jane Cibelli is still on top of the standings with a 29 to 24 lead over Scott Volk and Eddie Broome. She could become the first women to win a trainer's title.
•There will be free parking and free admission to grandstand or clubhouse on FRIDAYS.
Here is the preliminary Place Pick 6 for Saturday as we will hopefully continue to cash tickets: 1,7 with 5,8 with 1,2 with 10 with 2,5,6 with 1,4,5. That is our standard $36 ticket.
