Race 1

No. 4 What’sontheagenda is one of the few runners in here with early speed, if he can clear early he could be long gone before they know what hit them. Trainer Richard Baltas is firing with all his runners and he sends out No. 6 Ice Kat with Joel Rosario up for the ride, he gets a turn back to a sprint and will be flying late. 4-6

No. 2 Miz Tianjin has won 3 of her 6 starts here at the Great Race Place. No. 4 Majestic Design takes a double drop in class. No. 6 Princess Leia is on a nice win every other race pattern and this is her win race.

Our key runner in this one mile dirt race for 3yo maidens is No. 6 OMAHA BEACH who has run all good races in his three race career. He gets off the grass and owns a big last work here on December 30th. All systems are a go for Richard Mandella/Flavien Prat. We will key him with No. 1 Istanbul, No. 4 Asano, No. 7 Nolo Contesto and No. 10 Green Fleet in a trifecta and bet him to win. 6*** with 1-4-7-10
