Race #3 Picks: 5-2-9-7
Race #4 Picks: 5-7-6-4
Race #5 Picks: 5-6-7-4
Race #6 Picks: 6-7-5-4
In this allowance/optional claiming race for two-year-olds N2L at 6 furlongs, #6 Sentir Zuliano (6-1) left the maiden ranks here at Delaware Park running a 67 speed figure. The second-place finisher went on to win his next race. This colt has a lot of early speed and we think he will be able to wire this field. #7 Freedom Road (2-1) has run in two stake races since winning a maiden special weight race in July. After running evenly in those two contests, he is now moving down to a level where he can be competitive. After running in the slop he will now be back on a fast track and is a top contender in this event. #5 The Colora Kid (4-1) has improving speed figures. Ran in the slop in last at Laurel and now back at Delaware where he ran his best races. #4 Swifty Devil (8-1) will make his first start for the Michael Gorham barn, which wins at a 30% clip in 33 tries on first after the claim.
Race #7 Picks: 4-3-7-5
In this $50,000 Allowance race at 5 ½ furlongs, #4 Feast (4-1) is the winner of three straight, and most recently the Rumson Stakes at Monmouth in September with a 92 speed figure. Delaware has been favoring early speed and this horse almost always gets the early lead. We have him on top today. #3 Whereshetoldmetogo (2-1) has seven wins in nine tries lifetime at Delaware and has won all four starts this year. Brittany Russell’s barn has been hot, and this runner is a top contender. #7 Carpenters Call (3-1) has been impressive on the grass and on synthetic but has never won on dirt. Could be dangerous if he takes to the Delaware dirt. #5 Threes Over Deuces (8-1) is always competitive, but has no wins in 2022. Should be considered in the exotics.
Race #8 Picks: 2-7-4-5
