Monmouth: Merlot Dreams Scores


Merlot Dreams was a fairly easy winner in the opener after shaking loose early on, and though I liked her in that spot she's one to bet against next time, as she had a pace advantage in the race, and she exploited it. She may not get the same kind of scenario in her next start but she does figure to be bet. After all, she was only 2-1 today.

The main track is rated as "Muddy" through two races but that should be upgraded at some point today, as it's cool and breezy. It may not get to "Fast" but "Good" is a, well, "good" possibility.
