Gabby Gaudet’s got some thoughts on a live longshot and a Pick 6 play.

Laurel’s dime Rainbow 6 wager has a carryover of $2,459 heading into Sunday’s racing action.  Yesterday’s Rainbow 6 paid out to those who correctly scoped out just four of six races after three double-digit payouts came home.

Maryland racing analyst Gabby Gaudet shares her thoughts on today’s Rainbow 6, which begins in race 3.

GABBY’S RACING NOTES

[su_list icon=”icon: check”]

  • Race 3 — It’s worth spreading out in race 3, but you certainly have to include favored #4 Special Congrats, who makes his first start after being claimed by Jamie Ness (34 percent first off the claim with a positive ROI), gets bug rider Tyler Conner up, and was beaten a length and change last out after a terrible trip.
  • Race 4 — Last turf for #4 Mr. Fidgety (6-1) was better than it looks.  Bank Float won that race by seven and came back to win in allowance company at Delaware, while runner-up Lava also won next out.  It was Mr. Fidgety’s first in nearly two years, and he was just three back of Lava.
  • Race 5 —I really liked #3 Sharp Richard’s (8-1) two-back race going two turns on the grass against similar.  He seems to be on the improve even at age five.  He may not like to pass other horses much, but I don’t think that’s a big problem here, as there doesn’t seem to be a ton of speed, so he’ll probably be able to lead or press.  A repeat of his two-turn race in May probably makes him a winner here.
  • Race 6 — When Gary Capuano brings horses back off a layoff to sprint, he’s usually just tuning them up to stretch out, but #6 Bay Finn (9-5) did run a couple of good races sprinting, albeit on the turf, so my sense is you include him, but he’s not a single.  I’m also adding #3 Poco Loco (15-1), a horse I expect to improve in his second start with blinkers added and Alex Cintron up.
  • Race 7 — #1 Northern Label (3-1) was tons the best when he won this race for the tag two back, and I expect a similar outcome today.
  • Race 8 — #4 Back Scatter (4-1) makes his first appearance after being claimed by Kieron Magee back in May — and first after the claim for Magee has been a ridiculously profitable angle (38 percent wins with a $3 ROI), so I think you have to include this runner in your mix.
