rdalert447 Posted November 22, 2022 Report Share Posted November 22, 2022 Opening day is tomorrow and there’s been a couple of interesting developments since the end of last meet. The first one is that it appears Rafael Schistl will not be showing up this meet. Hoping I’m wrong, but he split with his main owners and his new owners mainly stable up in the Mid-Atlantic. Aldana Spieth has his old horses, so she’ll probably improve off past results. The second angle is the death of trainer Robert Raymond. He died right as last year’s meet ended. Raymond was good for between 10-15 wins per meet, with a handful of good prices. The good news is that his assistant trainer, Pedro Posadas, took over and maintains a relationship with previous owners. Posadas hasn’t started out great, going 2 for 42 at tracks like Delaware and Monmouth. But Raymond’s horses never did well up there yet thrived when they returned to Tampa. Posadas should fly under the radar, at least early on. In fact, he has three long ones entered opening day. Look alive tomorrow, men. One of the best betting meets in the country is about to kickoff…. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
