THE PETE SHEETS sweep first three, Montini and Baillargeon sweep Late Double...

I knew going into last night's card that THE PETE SHEETS' subscribers were either going to be real happy or real broke after the first three races from Mohawk and luckily it was the former. Actually, not luckily at all -- you've got to be good to be lucky. Rock Me Amastreos and Boogie Woogie combined for a $30.80 Double that THE PETE SHEETS had cold and when Outrageous Art won the 3rd, subscribers added the $26.60 Pick Three to their list of early winning bets. $26.60 isn't much, but neither is the dollar that a few emailed me to tell me they spent getting it! Way to go, gang!

Last week, I took a lot of heat for being critical of the broadcasts at WEG, but today I have to give credit where credit is due -- Chris Hickey is already asking much better questions of much more pertinent people and I'm certain that customers are just as cognisant and appreciative of the overnight improvement as I am. Kudos to Chris!

Seer Of Patmos continues to be "Public Enemy No. 1" -- he's torched more of the public's money in the last four weeks than Bernie Madoff! He's still a horse of unmistakable ability though and last night's aberration ensures he'll be offered at a much bigger price the next time he goes behind the gate. Those with the intestinal fortitude to go back to the big bay one more time will have a chance to get all of their money back in one race.

Tony Montini and Mario Baillargeon swept last night's Late Double with Adrenaline and Smokeys Luck. The former was a six-figure private purchase that has now won two of three for his new owners and would most certainly have picked up a cheque in the rich Upper Canada Cup Final if not for a very compromising trip. It's the job that Montini has done with Smokeys Luck in recent weeks that is most impressive. He had been just plain awful during most of his tenure in Montini's barn -- win-shy and uninterested -- until the last two weeks. Last night, he looked like Camluck himself and the marked improvement that the horse has shown is not lost upon me. Montini has transformed a horse that had long been a perpetual auto-toss from win candidacy into one that's now deserving of attention from fellow horsemen and bettors alike.

Last night's "Tweet with Pete" session on Twitter went better than I could've ever imagined. We'll do it again tonight, starting a few minutes before the opener at Georgian Downs. Setup your Twitter account and then follow "@THEPETESHEETS" to join in.
