Race 9: An allowance race on the dirt to be run at one mile. They’re forecasting some rain in Hot Springs, so watch the conditions if you’re playing. Top choice is No. 9 Shocking Fast. We think this horse is going to love stretching out in distance. Shes related to multiple stakes winners Irap and Speightstown on her dam side. No. 5 Subiaco doesn’t race consistently. But we liked what we saw in her last. No. 6 Crystal Lake is a steady performer for D. Wayne Lukas.
