* Laurel Park has four (4) races (4th, 5th, 7th, 8th) scheduled to be run on the TURF. The forecast for the D.C. suburbs on Friday is for Mostly Cloudy skies with high temps near 80 with 20% chance of scattered thunderstorms by 1st race post time (3:40pm). The below selections were made on the belief that races will be run ON the TURF.

 

Race 1

  1. #7 – Destination Love (7-2): Drops from $40k MCL debut when off a bit slow going 4½f
  2. #3 – Fiveoclocksomwhere (9-2): FTS concluded work tab w/ bullet; Could be a Ham Smith Exacta  
  3. #1/1A – Don’s Girl/Ermine and Purrs (1-1): Strong Ness entry has top and 3rd best Brisnet figs         

 

Race 2

  1. #1 – Chance Encounter (4-5): Does best work @ Lrl (11: 3-5-1); Magee 28% when drops 2+ classes
  2. #4 – Lindyhop (8-1): Best on an Off Track but last “W” was here on fast track in Dec. ’14 going long
  3. #6 – Wildcat Honey (6-1): Won at this level two races back; 2 of 3 at a mile – 1 1/16 mile             

 

Race 3

  1. #1 – Hunting Manda (5-2): Jock/Trainer combo score at 24% clip; fits with these
  2. #3 – Tiago’s Honour (7-5): Huge drop for “House Horse” void of speed; vulnerable fav.  
  3. #4 – Who Stole My Sock (8-1): First 2-turn try in 17 starts; might like it   

 

* Race 4

  1. #1 – Pom Pom Pistol (8-1): 1st turf try but nice record on AW; does well wheeling back quick           
  2. #8 – Deputy Fancy (10-1): 10th start; has wanted turf 2 other times, but came off; watch tote
  3. #9 – Sweet Soliloquy (12-1): Owns best lifetime Brisnet turf #(90); should get perfect stalking trip      

 

* Race 5

  1. #10 – Texas Zip (6-1): *Best Bet* Disastrous trip last outing when PT fav.; gets jock upgrade
  2. #2 – Ave Nox (15-1): Away since last Sept.; 1st Lasix in 9th start; Boyce back in irons
  3. #8 – Corinthian Summer (9-2): Burning $$$, has been less than 2-1 last 5, but just 1 win       

 

Race 6

  1. #1 – Quality Wise (5-2): Field lacks early speed, X-Man on rail must try gate-2-wire    
  2. #5 – Daily News (8-1): Took action in debut but was wide & green; Adds blinkers  
  3. #9 – Field Sense (6-1): Tossing 2-turn in slop; wins if he can run back to sprint 2-back

 

* Race 7

  1. #4 – Unbridled Lion (4-1): Turf has always been on his radar, gets it (let’s hope) today
  2. #7 – Cruise More (8-1): Prudent claim for D. Capuano; has back class to shine here              
  3. #10 – Dynaformersrequest (3-1): Nice debut on grass; barn has high hopes for colt    


* Race 8

  1. #12 – Tigers Bop (15-1): $Longshot Play$ Got education v. tough foes in (grass) debut; jock upgrade, bombs away    
  2.  #7 – Mr. Benz (3-1): Might need more distance but cannot ignore heavy action (9-5) in debut  
  3. #10 – Proration (20-1): Made nice early run going long in turf debut; cut back what Dr. ordered
