We start another three day racing week, with yet another eight race card, as horses continue to move elsewhere. No. 6 EROTIC gets his first start in a claiming race and Richard Mandella hits at around 60% with runners making their first start in a claiming race. No. 7 Asano drops in class and will try and take them wire-to-wire. 6***-7
WIN AND PLACE 6
No. 1 Sturdy One loves this track or she did at one time with 5 wins from 10 starts and 3 seconds. She comes back to town off a win at Turf Paradise and looks spotted to win. 1
No. 3 Caracortada was the hot horse first out when going off at 9/5 here on March 31 only to finish 3rd. We will give her a big shot to move forward off of that race and key her with No. 2 Champagne Honey the speed and No. 6 Whata Flirt who also has big early speed. 3**-2-6
No. 1 Bam Bams Lil River drops into an action spot. No. 3 Time for Suzzie drops in this her second start off the Robert Hess claim, but it’s good that he keeps her about the claimed price and puts her back on the dirt.
No. 4 Artie B Good comes off a good second down the hill, he now goes a mile on the grass and can handle it. No. 7 Encumbered will sit right off the heels of No. 8 Snazzy Dresser. These two will try to go wire-to-wire together and hold off Artie. 4-7-8
We will need to go four deep in this $16k claimer using No. 1 Moneydontspenitself off the easy win last out, No. 3 Big Shanty on the big drop, No. 4 Kochees who also gets a big class drop and No. 8 Matriculate on the big move up off the big win. 1-3-4-8
Fillies and mares travel a mile on the grass and this field is loaded with early speed which will send us to No. 4 Cynthiana the closer who gets Flavien Prat back on today. The one time he rode this mare he just missed going a mile on the grass vs. much stronger, we will single. 4**
We get a suspect group of $25k maiden 2yo going a mile on the dirt. No. 5 Royal Insider will wake up here with the drop from straight maiden races. No. 6 Groucho finds a very easy spot for his first start. No. 7 Palace Sage comes off the layoff, he drops, gets blinkers on and makes his first start as a gelding, ya think they are trying. 5-6-7
8th 5-6-7 (.50 bet cost $18.00).
