Race #1 Picks: 4-1-5-2
Race #2 Picks: 1-3-2-4
Race #3 Picks: 2-1-5-7
In this allowance/optional claiming race for fillies and mares at five furlongs on the turf #2 Tapit’s Girl (3-1) has liked the move from dirt to turf and has won two straight turf sprints at Monmouth. She looks strong against this group. #1 Beautiful Grace (2-1) won her only turf race last year and Ness wins at 22% when moving from dirt to turf. A possibility. #5 Bound for Broadway (6-1) has run some good races on the turf including one at Delaware Park last year. She should not be overlooked today. #7 Wrapper Rule (8-1) won her only turf start and could be in the nix with these.
Race #4 Picks: 5-4-7-1
Race #5 Picks: 7-5-6-4
In this $65,000 optional claiming race for fillies and mares at seven and a half furlongs on the turf #7 Sailingintothewind (3-1) got the lead but was tracked down last time in a mile and an eighth race. She should get an easy lead today and may be tough to catch at this shorter distance. We think she will cross the wire first. #5 Mucha Mezquina (6-1) has been running very well lately including running second in a stakes race at colonial in last. She has the speed and class to be competitive here. #6 No Mercy Percy (2-1) has been facing tough competition at Monmouth but has not been able to win lately. Should be in the mix today if she runs her normal race. #4 Purrageous Dyna (8-1) ran some good turf races at Belmont recently. A possibility.
Race #6 Picks: 3-1-4-6
Race #7 Picks: 9-10-4-5
Race #8 Picks: 3-4-1A-2
