Race 4

We will take our shot in this race and single No. 6 Warren’s Morgan in the players pick five. She gets her first start off the Dallas Keen claim and is proven on dirt, Keen can win first off the claim. 6

Race 5

This is a good betting race especially if the main two runners No. 11 Promiscuoussuances and No. 12 Pebble Beach Baby don’t draw in from the also list. If either of them do you must use, if they don’t then we will go for No. 9 Smart Striking who gets a turn back in distance and a drop to the level of her last win.
