Race 9 - $15,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (47 - 74 / $164.60): BIG EXPENSE (5th)

Spot Play: FOX VALLEY BROOKE (7th)

 

Race 1

(5) FOX VALLEY WAVE has been facing much tougher at Hoosier.  The filly flashed a decent burst of speed last out and should offer a fair price.  (4) PRINCESS MIMI burned cash last start just getting picked off late at this same level.  (3) NASHVILLE NASTY didn't miss by much last out going a very tough trip; driver's choice.

Race 2

(3) PJ BOY has had some tough racing luck in his last few.  The freshman trotter should be in line for a better trip.  (5) SPEEDY RENDEZVOUS is still learning how to race and is capable of trotting a fast mile.  (6) PASTOR CLINT will look to make it three straight but has had trouble staying trotting at times.

Race 3

(7) PARKLANE INDY finds a softer bunch and keeps the top driver.  (9) THE DALI'S LLAMA should offer a big price and can hit the ticket with a good setup.  (4) POKER JOE just raced evenly last week but has been knocking on the door.

Race 4

(5) LEXINGTON LADY raced super last out off a month layoff.  With any improvement the pacer beats this field for fun.  (1) SARA'S TERROR is probably better suited for the big track.  The 2-year-old gets the best post and can pounce for a piece late.  (6) WHISKERSONKITTENS nice looking filly was sharp last race not missing by much to the top choice.

Race 5

(6) BIG EXPENSE went a big effort first up last week.   (7) COUGAR LADY closed nicely last out from a tough spot but probably needs more against the top choice.  (4) SHOW STOPIN MONKEY has come up empty in his last few but takes a significant drop in class.

Race 6

(1) THEDAYYOUHAVEMADE won't offer the same price this week but could make it two straight against a soft bunch.  (6) I DON'T REMBER burned tons of cash last out but was sharp the start prior; threat.  (3) WALKNINTHEMOONLITE mare probably needed her last start and has room to improve.

Race 7

(1) FOX VALLEY BROOKE will offer a much better price off a dull effort in a field with few contenders.  (2) FOX VALLEY CHARM was much the best last week against this bunch.  (6) LEX has not won a race in sometime but was better last week; threat.

Race 8

(5) ROYALE ROSE has dusted this same group all year long; short price.  (4) J B'S HERO owns only one win on the year but has been improving; use underneath.  (6) PARTY FALLS has shown a big burst of speed but will need more to hit the top spot.

Race 9

(9) NORTHERN DALI filly pacer seems to be up against it facing older, however in the right scenario the pacer could hit the board at a monster price.  (6) JUST BY DESIGN hasn't been as consistent this year but is capable down in class.  (7) PARTY HANGOVER mare was sharp down in class last out; threat.

Race 10

(3) JINXY'S DELIGHT was an easy winner last time at this level; threat.  (1) ROCKNROLL CRYSTAL gets the best post and was the driver's choice.  (5) PROSPER never got into the mile last week but should offer a big price in an evenly matched field.                          

Race 11

(4) ODDS ON DOMINICA gets sent out for a hot barn in a field full of question marks.  (7) HOOSIERS FANTASY pacing mare is ultra consistent at hitting the board.  (6) WILD BERRY MUFFLER was parked the mile from the ten hole last week but raced very well; threat.

Race 12

(8) SUMMER SHANDY has burned cash in two straight but is probably the fastest horse in the field.  (9) BARBOSA didn't miss by much and just needs a good setup to hit the ticket.  (2) BC'S CHIEF doesn't look the best on paper but fits with this group.
