Race #1 Picks: 5-2-4-6
Race #2 Picks: 1A-6-2-4
Race #3 Picks: 7-2-4-5
Race #4 Picks: 4-6-5-3
In this $25,000 claiming race for non-winners of 2 races at one mile and 70 yards, #4 My Danny Boy (3-1) is dropping down after showing early speed and fading with better. If he gets the lead with this group, they likely won’t catch him. We have him on top. #6 Conquistador Show (3-2) almost always puts in a game effort but only has one win in fifteen tries. However, his speed figures put him right in the mix and he will be competing for the top spot today. #5 Here Comes Magic (6-1) is a three-year-old and is still improving. He is capable of a big race at any time and this could be the day. A possibility. #3 My Freedom (12-1) may have been in over his head last time with $40,000 claimers. Now’s he’s running at a more reasonable level and could be competitive today.
Race #5 Picks: 1-2-6-3
Race #6 Picks: 3-8-2-1
Race #7 Picks: 9-6-1-5
In this $22,000 Maiden Optional Claiming Race for fillies and mares at One mile and 70 yards on the turf, #9 Farcical (3-1) has fourteen lifetime starts without a win, but has been knocking on the door recently. There isn’t much stiff competition for her today and she should get it done. #6 Three Coins (7-2) finished behind Farcical in last two but should be close again and fits well with this group. #1 Inanna’s Quest (10-1) has not run since October but has been working well and has a shot if she is ready. In the fourth position we are going with first time starter #5 Sweet Tina (8-1) whose breeding indicates she might like the grass. One to play at a long price.
Race #8 Picks: 5-7-1-3
