Race 1

Just another five horse race to start the day. No. 2 Money Cannon gets off the grass and back to a sprint on the dirt. He will find a fast early pace and Garcia will sit right off of it and pounce turning for home. Tyler Baze will be gunning No. 4 Sacred Ovation from the bell. 2-4

Race 2

The hot riding Van Dyke who has hit the board with 14 of his 19 starts here gets on No. 1 Badasmywifeletsmeb who gets off the grass. He will have him place in the right spot turning for home. Mike Smith gets his shot on No. 4 Next Book who has lost his four starts by a neck, a neck, a neck and a head. 1-4

Race 3

No. 1 Wine Country Wanda has really burned some serious cash in her last three starts, she may like it here and Tyler Baze gets his shot at getting her home on top. Van Dyke gets on the big dropper No. 4 Broadway Bella for trainer Julio Canani, she will wake up big time in this spot. No. 6 Stracciatella showed good early speed in her first try going long last out when finishing second despite trouble. 1-4-6

Race 4

No. 3 Dewrag ran a solid second at this level here on July 3rd, he will now try and go a tough 7 furlongs. No. 1 Los Bambinos drops to a better level and may like this course and the one time Antongeorgi rode his he got the win. 1-3

Race 5

The players pick five which is the best bet in racing with the low .14% take out ends today with a group of 2yo going 5-1/2 furlongs, let’s see if we can separate them. Trainer Peter Miller who has won with 2 of his five starters at the meet sends out second time starter No. 3 Rowdy Dylan who broke slow in his first start when breaking from post position number one. He has a nice 6 furlong work since and is ready to roll. We must always take notice when we see Iggy riding a first time starter for trainer Paul Aguirre and he is on No. 7 Dr. Vincentstein, he is a must use. 3-7

Race 7


No. 1 Tres Belle won her last two starts at Churchill Downs. She has good stalking speed and that is what you need here and that last work has her on edge. If No. 4 Heir Kitty can stick closer to the early pace she looks the one to beat. Mike Smith gets his shot on No. 7 Doinghardtimeagain for Jerry Hollendorfer, she is a perfect 2-for-2 at this 6-1/2 furlong distance. 1-4-7

Race 8

No. 1 Relatively Correct lands in the barn of Jeff Mullins. This gelding has run four good races at this mile distance and he gets the hard trying Tiago Pereira in the irons. We will take out shot and single in the late pick three. 1

Race 6

No. 6 Mon Mousse may end up being the speed of the speed in here on the stretchout. No. 4 Uncle Enroy will be right with him from the bell. No. 7 Papa’s Trashed will be the one that will take advantage if the top two get into a pace duel. 4-6-7
