Race #4 Picks: 5-3-2-6
Race #5 Picks: 10-11-9-8
Race #6 Picks: 5-1-2-3
This starter/optional claiming race at one mile is super-competitive and could be used as an “All” race in multi-race exotics. #5 Aspect (6-1) has won 6 of 20 lifetime dirt starts and is now coming back to that surface after trying the grass. Fast workout in August and this jockey/trainer have been hot this year. Out top choice. #1 Shoo Shine (7-2) has early speed and has won two straight. Will be very tough if he gets an easy lead, If he repeats last two he will be challenging for the win. #2 Super Dude (5-1) is another early speed type who may have lost a step from his prime but is still fast enough to be in the mix with these. A possibility. #3 Confessor (5-2), a winner of his last two, is another horse with early speed and should be in the mix.
Race #7 Picks: 2-9-6-1A
In this second-level allowance/optional claiming race at 5 furlongs on the turf #2 Xy Speed (2-1) has been in very good form and almost won at Saratoga in last. If he repeats his recent races, he should win easily. We have him on top. #9 Gins and Tins (3-1) has been competitive at this class and distance and fits very well with this group. A possibility. #6 A Song for Arch (4-1) has been good in recent races and should be competitive with this group. #1A Baby Boomer (8-1) has been working well while being freshened and may have needed the break. A chance.
Race #8 Picks: 2-5-6-7
