Dear ValueCapper and Friend,
There’s been a huge frenzy about California Chrome and his quest for the Triple Crown.
The Today show had a featured interview this morning with Victor Espinoza, and the major news channels have all had a piece on Chrome’s quest.
I wish him well. Not surprisingly, BLAM has California Chrome right on top.
As it did in the Kentucky Derby. And the Preakness. And the Santa Anita Derby. And The San Felipe.
You get the point.
This is a very solid colt, and that’s been recognized by BLAM.
Making this Belmont Stakes a difficult betting race.
Oh, it’s easy to bet, but whether that bet is a good value investment is the real question.
Betting against a colt like California Chrome just BECAUSE it’s a short price is not a good strategy.
There needs to be reasons to bet against it (I call these Anti-Value factors).
With California Chrome there really aren’t any, unless you consider that it will be overbet, and that the last dozen horses that won both the Derby and Preakness have failed in the Belmont.
In the video I’ve made for you, I’ll show you some actual tickets from a Triple Crown winner.
There are some very legitimate colts running against Chrome, and I review these for you in the 2014 Belmont Stakes ValueCapping Video Rant
It’s been a long road to this race on Saturday, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey and have learned some things along the way about the approach of ValueCapping and making value investments at the race track.
Thanks so much for all of your support and encouragement.
Good luck this weekend, and don’t forget to let the bet make you.
All the best,
