Race 3: 3- Jojo’s Journey – Got a brutal tripped from post eight in his last start and never fired, should return to form tonight from the inside. 1- Kirty Dream – Drops in class tonight after a game trip against Open II Company, definitely a play from the rail. 5- Guth – Has had no luck as of late with the post draw and finally gets some tonight, worth a look.
Race 4: 3- Pantsuit Hilary – Dropped to this class last time out and tired as the favorite, hoping to improve off of that effort. 1- Amazing Gracie Jane – Draws the rail this week and looks to be very dangerous against this group. 9- Fly Me Courageous – The second tier scares some horses away, but she doesn’t seem to mind it too much, could strike at a price. 2- She B Jeebeez – Draws well this week and gets a very big driver change, could be a part of the ticket for trainer Brian Boring.
Race 5: 4- Glamrocker – Made a costly break in the stretch last time out, has shown ability to race well against these before. 2- Forever Royal – Has the ability to be prominently placed on this ticket. 1- Cooter Dunn – Should get a good trip from the inside. 8- Curlys Son – Has been ultra-consistent against lower level conditions, moves up and tries to take on the big boys tonight.
Race 6: 2- De Vins Girl – The draw has not been kind to this mare, tonight she draws well and gets a big driver change. 9- Derek Delight – Has raced well in her last three starts, she will be forced to take a pocket trip though this week drawing the 2nd tier. 1- Naked At The Beach – Finally draws inside this week for trainer Dan Walski and she seems to get along well with driver Aaron Merriman. 6- Threefold Breanna – Could be in the thick of the action despite starting from the outside.
Race 7: 4- Automatic Slims – Draws into a race where several could win; this one gets the slight call over the others to get the job done. 8- World Of Gaming – Has raced well from an outside post before against this group, expecting a decent trip tonight. 1- Cold Hearted Shark – Drew tough against tougher in his last start and never fired, drops in class tonight and draws the rail and looks poised to strike against this group. 7- Iwanashowusomethin – Qualified well in his last start at the Meadows, trainer is on the board 24% of the time when 1st off layoff.
Race 8: 1- Regal Hope – Has been racing well at Hoosier and Scioto and is looking to continue that success tonight. 9- Stride Of Pride – Tired late in the trip from post six last time out, tries the 2nd tier tonight, without a lot of speed inside. 3- Senator Charlie – Has been known to show up at a price against this class, definitely one to watch out for.
Race 9: 1- Classic Gent – Has really come a long way and has been improving with each start, the rail is the perfect spot for him. 2- Twin B Stingray – Was impeded while closing his last start, could strike with a better trip. 9- Raiders Boy – Has been racing consistently and that trend should continue. 4- Bettor’s Choice – Draw was much kinder this week and that should make him a competitor.
Race 10: 4- Headsaregonna Turn – Won this race easily in his last start, the speed this gelding has can only help. 5- The Land Shark – Was a winner last time out and looks to be tough again tonight. 9- Palmers Pride – Has had some success against Open company before and tonight he draws to the 2nd tier with no speed inside. Will need a good journey and he could get it tonight. 6- Rockn Stein – Was 3rd from post six in his last start and there is no reason to think he won’t be on the ticket this time.
Race 11: 4- Sassy Osborne – Could definitely be the value play against this group after a brutal trip last out and still managing to finish 2nd. 8- Celtic Prince – Has won three straight races and is looking to continue the streak from the outside. 2- Thinkofagameplan – Expect the consistency to continue. 1- Savage Seelster – Draws well to the inside this week after two game efforts, worth a look on the Superfecta ticket.
Race 13: 1- Bubbie Boy – Draws well again this week and only missed a neck against easier company, has defeated these before from the rail; definitely a play. 6- Rick’s Sign – Has only missed the board twice in six starts and now goes to the barn of Ron Burke. 4- Verbal Assault – Didn’t get the best trip against this class last week, but that was from the outside. I have to think a better post will play to his advantage. 2- Americhi – Stepped up to this group last time out and never really fired. He seems to be coming back to his old ways of winning and hitting the ticket so I am inclined to give him a chance. 3- Cams Fernando – Has been no worse than fifth in six starts including a start against this group last time out, definitely want to use at a price in the high five.
