In this $8000 claiming race for NW3 at one mile and a sixteenth almost any horse could win this wide open affair. #8 Shoulda Had It (10-1) made a nice move in the slop last time out, but could not catch the winner. If he can repeat that race, he will be very competitive today. #3 Jammin Still (8-1) is dropping to the lowest level of his career. He has not been running well lately, but the drop may wake him up. #4 End All Get All (2-1) was running well at Parx before Anthony Pecoraro reclaimed the training duties. He has a shot with his group. #5 Load Up Moe (3-1) ran a big race here at Delaware two weeks ago. If he can repeat that effort, he will be in the mix.
Race #7 Picks: 9-1-7-4
In the $40,000 first-level allowance for fillies and mares at about seven and a half furlongs on the turf, #9 Traffic Song (8-1) graduated from the maiden ranks with a 74 speed rating at Monmouth. Her next race was taken off the turf at Pimlico and she did not like the mud. She has been idle for 7 weeks but has been working well. We have her on top today. #1 Sally’s Mustang (7-2) made a run in the lane in last but seemed to lack room. If she gets a clear path she has a shot today. We are slightly concerned that she only has a 12-day rest following a mile-and-an-eighth effort, but she came into that race fresh. #7 Inanna’s Quest (12-1) won in her debut effort this year and could improve off that effort. Could be in the mix. #4 Takingtimeoff (6-1) will try to set the pace and will be dangerous if she gets free. Also eligible #13 Woodbine Way (8-1) most likely won’t draw in but should be considered if she does.
Race #8 Picks: 5-6-2-3
