No. 5 Causeway Carolyn just missed last out on this course and with Roman hurt she gets the good jock Van Dyke and she is also the stablemate of the War Heroine. No. 6 Classy Tune looks the filly to beat off her huge try last out and now she gets Prat on. 6-2-5

No. 4 For the Hustle ran good in his first start when bet down to 8/5 but no works since that race is a concern.

Race 8


No. 1 Conquest Tsunami won back-to-back races on this course before being shipped to run in Dubai where he finished 3rd going 6 furlongs on the grass, we just don’t know what the trip took out of him. No. 4 Belvoir Bay likes this course and will get a great set up coming from off the pace, Peter Miller sends a mare vs. the boys and she is the stablemate of Tsunami. 1-4

Race 9

$20k claimers go a mile on the main. No. 3 Eagle Screams comes off a good second with $25k claimers and the drop could get him home and the horse that beat him came back to score here on Thursday by many lengths, the last time No. 6 Ground Rules ran at this distance and level he got the win. No. 1 Gentrified is a hard hitter at this level and distance. 3-6-1
