Ten by Ten on Turf

It seems to me that more long shots pop in on turf than on dirt. I'm going to limit my picks to turf races that have at least 10 entries before scratches and I will only consider horses that are 10:1 or more on the morning line. If such a horse has some competitive feature ( past class, recent good race, closing kick, etc.) I will bet $2 to win.

Today's picks are:

GP 1-----#2 Mymartina
GP 1-----#10 Monetary System
GP 2-----#4 Knight Errant
GP 2-----#5 Leroy's Image
GP 4-----#14 Fort Dixie
GP 12----#3 Lone Sentry
GP 12----#5 Street Copper

FG 2-----#2 Galilea
FG 2-----#13 Tizahandful
FG 4-----#8 Neverquitdrea
FG 6-----#4 Shes a True Beauty
FG 6-----#6 Scatter Gun
FG 8-----#7 Applicator

SA 6-----#6 Conquest Daddyo

GP 8-----#8 Immunity

Immunity is interesting.

A little surprised that they are willing to lose Ray's The Bar for $16k today. Currently 2-5...
Not exactly a suspicious drop, but they aren't protecting what looks like a tough horse.

Tomorrow is mandatory payout day for the Rainbow 6. May have zero effect on the races themselves, but a couple prices in the sequence makes for a big payout.

Real bleak. Has worked in the past and I'm too bullheaded to quit.

It's a game of streaks...

You could be doing great selecting and still be on a bad random streak when dealing with long shots. Then you may hit 2 in a day...

Everyone has an opinion, so I may as well chime in.
I feel like these kind of results are relatively more likely to occur in races with a high degree of randomness/chaos/entropy than in races where I happen to 'like' a longer shot.
I think you already touched on that with your 'Turf' pre-selection, but it could be expanded upon.

What are the main things that cause a chaos race?
Not a question that I have a strong answer to.
-Sometimes a race just doesn't have any dominant horses, so by default, the public bets the 'best' of that bunch...
-The above can be in any race, but sometimes it seems to happen more often than usual in maiden claimers or cheap claimers. Occasionally a full field of 'bad' horses is carded, and it just takes a little bit of a bad trip with the 'most likely' horse, to allow a long shot to wire the field, or a cavalry charge to reward whoever happens to still be running in the stretch...
-Sometimes it's as simple as a type of race. For a while last year, full-field turf sprints at Belmont seemed to often be chaotic.

What are the best types of long shots for these races?
Another question I wish I had the answer to.
-I want long shots that either will be up on the lead(however unlikely they are to get the distance), or long shots that have some semblance of a stretch run((doesn't have to be a 'deep' closer)should the late flow of the race 'move them up'). These long shots tease that they have a chance to at least be in position (on the lead, or with the stretch-runners late), but they generally either have demonstrated some success in recent races at a significantly lower class level, or they have 'proven to be dull' at this level(or above) and would really need to be brave or get a good trip today.

You got me thinking about long shots (not part of my everyday game).

Some for today that seemed to fit my strategy.

GP R5 #2 THOR'S HAMMER
GP R5 #8 STRIKING HEIR
*this was a jump off the page race, as I think the favorite BELLE TAPISSERIE is vulnerable/false, but it may well simply be the 2nd choice ml for Todd Pletcher #4 ZIPPY WILLY- saw a workout video for this one and hinted at a high cruising speed and good fundamentals. Disappointing when you find a false favorite, and the 2nd choice wins... #8 is somewhat cool because took money first time out, is one of the only to show early pace in a race vs many FTS, and goes to hot-hand Irad Ortiz after a freshening.

GP R10 #4 RAHY MOMENTA
GP R10 #5 LADY OF SHADY LANE
GP R10 #6 GRANDTASTIC NEWS

TAM R4 #1 HAND ME THE CASH

TAM R5 #6 NINA'S PATIENCE
*One of the few here who aren't a wire-to-wire prayer. Worth a look at the interesting race placement recently vs winners (still mdn), and the gallop-out in that race.

OP R3 #1 CLASSIC PURSUIT

FG R3 #6 MELLWOOD SUMMER

FG R5 #9 BOLD STAR

FG R6 #4 SWEET IDI
FG R6 #8 SOUL OF THE HERO

FG R8 #2 BRITISH HUMOR
FG R8 #6 KING OF ALL MEDIA
