Race 64-10-2-5Top choice #4 Don Giuseppe (9-2) has caught some rugged fields in his first three starts, finishing immediately behind next-out winners in all three, and last time out, he was third in a race that’s already produced four next-out winners. He gets blinkers on and Lasix on and has a big chance to graduate today… Trainer Todd Pletcher doesn’t generally send horses to Parx without intending to get the money; he’s won 31% of his starts in Bensalem, with a 65% in-the-money rate in the last five years. That’s good news for #10 Flag (4-1), a son of Peace and Justice making his debut here with a pretty good work tab underneath him… Likely post-time favorite #2 Loose Ends (7-2) just missed against similar last out in his first try in nearly four months… #5 Muttley (5-1) didn’t have a great showing last time, but it was against a plus group that included three next-out winners, including Witty, who easily won the PA Nursery in his follow-up. The Servis trainee gets Lasix on today…
Race 85-6-4-3Top choice #5 Divine Huntress (9-5) won like a good thing last out and has since been sold to Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and transferred into trainer Graham Motion’s barn. She’ll get Lasix on for her first start for new connections and rates a big shot to make it two straight wins. The breeding says the stretch to two turns shouldn’t be beyond her… #6 Burano (9-2) has mostly run good races and easily graduated versus state-breds last out. She’s a half to Grade 3 Monmouth Oaks winner Leader of the Band… Last time she was seen locally, #4 Landslid (4-1) ran second to the speedy Morning Matcha, who then ran second in a NY-bred stake at Aqueduct. She should appreciate the return to Parx… When she broke her maiden, #3 Sea Pines (6-1) was the only horse to wire the field on a Laurel Park day on which closers ruled, and her follow-up wasn’t bad, either. She’ll get tested for class today…
