Best Bet (3 - 4 / $14.60): COME N BET IT (8th)

Race 1

(6) PABLO'S SKY DANCER makes his first start for a new trainer and picks up a nice driver change from the qualifier.  (1) BO'S SO HOT well bred gelding hasn't put it all together yet but does own ability.  (8) REGAL HONOR faces a much softer field than his first two outings and just needs to work out a smooth trip for a piece.

Race 2

(3) BUONCAMMINO filly looks to be a good one and should be much closer turning for home.  (1a) CHARIOTS AFIRE gets sent out as part of a powerful entry.  The driver had his choice of three and opted for her entrymate.  (1) JUST ONE DANCE put in a really nice three quarters of a mile last out winning easily; drivers' choice.

Race 3

In a very weak and inconsistent field (1) A TANGIBLE LEASE draws the best post and has room to improve.  (8) FRONTIER FANNIE looked to be a winner last out before being repelled but did show good pace on both ends of the mile.  (4) ELUSIVE RETURN lightly raced filly showed nice closing ability in her first start back off a long layoff.

Race 4

(6) MARY QUEEN mare has the most upside in the field and just needs to mind her manners for a nice piece.  (1) POWERFUL CAMMANDER 4-year-old stallion was really good last race off a long layoff and should only be better second time out.  (5) BELLS MOPED had a lot of racing luck last start and needs more; use underneath.

Race 5

(4) DUNSIDE ART turned in a sneaky good effort last start, should improve, and will offer a nice price.  (6) FOX VALLEY DEUCE looks to offer no value and really had ideal trips in his first two starts of the year; use caution.  (5) SPEED RACER lightly raced colt has proven connections and looks to have some upside making his third career start.

Race 6

(1) EMPLOYESS GO WILD nice-looking pacer isn't the biggest but the gelding has a nice powerful brush; short price.  (4) SHARK VISION was really good last out.  If there were a horse who could pick off the favorite this is the candidate.  (3) BLUE RIVER gelding has some go and should save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 7

(6) ONE LOUD DING showed some nice pace on the end of the mile and should offer a big price in a wide open race.  (5) FOX VALLEY TRINITY raced gamely last out but is at the mercy of the pace and trip every week; command a price.  (4) HOOSIER HILDA mare was a tad disappointing last start off a perfect trip but faces easier.

Race 8

In a field with few contenders (5) COME N BET IT has been sharp and just needs to be closer turning for home; fires late.  (1) LUCKY CRUSADER looks to be one of few who can pace with the top choice early in the season.  (4) MY BOY CAL has some back class but is making his first start of the year and might need one.

Race 9

(2) IM A DAN FOOL gelding looks to be in a good spot to do some damage.  The pacer went a few big miles at this track last year.  (3) NITROGEN FUSE picks up a new pilot but has been on a roll winning easily; short price.  (1) THISISHOWIROLL takes a step up in class but does draw the rail.

Race 10

(8) FIRSTCLASSALLTHWAY has been really good firing home nicely in his two starts since the layoff.  (9) FORT SILKY is coming off a career year, faces easier, and makes his second start back.  (5) BEST MAN HANOVER came up empty after being sharp the start prior but drops back down out of the invite.

Race 11

(5) ALLAMERICAN SOLO going to try the pacer one more time on top.  The nine-year-old gelding faces a much easier field than his last and has been pacing up a storm late.  (4) HOLY CHIP had a troubled trip getting shuffled last week and is probably the horse to beat.   (9) UNCLE BUD needs to find a way into the race but is a threat.

Race 12

(7) DON'T FLASH ME was really good when last seen at this track and is facing a much softer bunch than what she's been racing against.  (6) WHISTLE PIG mare has regained her form and could use a fast pace up front to close in to.  (5) STATE STREET LIZ mare is racing much better than her lines indicate on paper.

Race 13

In the toughest race to handicap on the card (2) BEACH'S NICK is due for some racing luck and finally draws inside.  (3) JO JO SPUR was a game winner that has shown more ability than this class previous.  (1) RICKY BOBBIE 4-year-old pacer gets the best post after racing gamely last start; threat.
