Balmoral: Sunday 3/16 Analysis


Race 7 $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Spot Play: BO’S SO HOT (6th)



Race 1

(4) LANCE GRAM gelding sticks out on paper off some really nice qualifiers and somebody would have to jump up with a big effort to beat him.  (5) SURF'S UP finds a wide open field besides the top choice and could definitely get a piece.  (3) HOLY MCMOSES is on a twenty-nine race losing streak and will probably offer little value; use underneath.

Race 2

(7) LOVIN YOU FOREVER trotting mare finds a really weak field and should offer a fair price.  (2) SUNBONNET SUE mare always seems to do just enough to stay at this level.  (3) A LOCAL BAND gelding gets a decent post and closed nicely in his qualifier last month.

Race 3

(7) BRIGHT LIGHT well bred filly has a nice pedigree to do some damage in her first lifetime start.  (1) VIVA VENTURI draws the rail and has flashed a good late kick in the past.  (4) ARROYA BLUE CHIP appears to be pacing faster than most in the race but has yet to pass a horse.

Race 4

(2) MARY QUEEN mare has the most ability in the field and just needs to stay trotting to be there on the wire.  (1) SO PHOTOGENIC has shown a good burst of speed but could need a start like everybody else.  (5) CARDINAL WIND two qualifiers and a start puts the gelding in good shape coming into the race.

Race 5

In a wide-open race that looks tough to decipher (5) SUNSET DREAMER showed some promise coming from far back to win his prep easily.  (6) FLOWBACK also kicked home nicely in the qualifier; threat.  (4) READY made the most money in the field last year but rarely wins.

Race 6

(1a) BO'S SO HOT gelding has 3 qualifiers under his belt and his dam has thrown out some really nice earners.  (2) SHARK VISION draws the best post and gets sent out for a trainer that is reliable for sending them ready off the bench.  (5) DAVE'S SKYSCAPER has shown good speed on both ends of the mile in both qualifiers; threat.

Race 7

(3) SECTIONLINE YANKEE owns the most back class in the race and looks to be fittest of all.  (7) PERTTY MUSIC should improve second start off the layoff.  If the top choice falters she could get her picture taken.  (8) MUY CALIENTE should offer a big price and with some racing luck could get a piece.

Race 8

(1) HERE'S JOHNNY was a better trotter than the field at the end of last year.   (2) B KEEPER gets a good post to save some ground and has jumped up with good efforts from time to time.  (5) POWERFUL SPEED is the best trotter in the race by far if you could predict he would stay trotting.

Race 9

(7) BUONCAMMINO should offer a big price in a wide-open field and looks to be a major player.  (8) ALWAYS A ROMANCE filly looks to have a ton of upside but might be raced easy from off the pace in her first trip around the track.  (4) JUST ONE DANCE two good qualifiers and a decent late kick puts the 4-year-old in the mix.

Race 10

In a field with few contenders (1) CHARIOTS AFIRE has flashed ability and should be in line for a great trip.  (5) BROOKELYNN FANCY mare gets a good driver change and should improve off her last qualifier.  (7) CYBER GAL filly has a good move and might be more ready than her lines show.
