Balmoral: Sunday 3/23 Analysis


Race 7 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (2 - 2 / $11.80): EMPLOYESS GO WILD (7th)

Spot Play: BUONCAMMINO (5th)


Race 1

(7) CARDINAL WIND probably has the most ability in the field and just needs to stay trotting for a piece.   (4) GOTTALUVAREDHEAD gelding raced his best ever in his first start off a layoff.  The trotter has had trouble finishing his miles in the past but was sharp last out.   (1) BELLS MOPED draws the rail against a weak field.

Race 2

(3) CYBER GAL filly put in a good last quarter off the layoff.  The driver opted elsewhere but the pacer has some ability.  (1) JUST ONE DANCE mare was sharp last out and will be tough to beat with a smooth trip.  (2) HANDN HAILEYLCB mare is very inconsistent but does own a good burst of speed.

Race 3

(1) DIXIE REBEL ships in from out east, draws the best post, and faces significantly easier.  (7) LOVIN YOU FOREVER well bred trotting mare might have the most upside in the race.  The 4-year-old could be sitting on a much better effort than she shows on paper.  (4) SO PHOTOGENIC might be starting to turn a corner in a weak field; threat.

Race 4

In a very tough race to handicap (5) ALWAYS A TALE doesn't get the best pilot but might have the most horsepower to work with.  (8) MISS RICH BRITCHES has shown very little progress in her career and would need to race much better; command a price.  (7) FRONTIER FANNIE could benefit from a speed duel upfront.

Race 5

(5) BUONCAMMINO filly was tenacious first start out scoring at a big price.  The secret is out but she should only improve.  (2) CHARIOTS AFIRE mare really looks like she could become a nice pacer; big chance.  (1) BROOKELYNN FANCY also jumped up with a big effort and would be in the mix with a repeat of her last effort.

Race 6

(7) JB OUI OUI can handle this bunch and proved it last year.  (1) VIPER BLUE CHIP was facing stiff competition out east and now finds an ideal spot to do some damage.  (6) BIG CHOCOLATE owns the most back class in the field.  If the well bred trotting stallion is ready off the bench he's the horse to beat.

Race 7

(1) EMPLOYESS GO WILD pacer was super-sharp off the bench showing a big stretch kick.  (5) SPEED RACER sophomore colt had no chance from an impossible post in his first career start.  The pacer closed up nicely and could be the only threat to the top choice.  (6) NO FEAR NO DOUBT dominated last out but now faces a much tougher bunch.

Race 8

(1) BENNS SCORE KEEPER comes into the race more fit than the rest of the field.  The 6-year-old trotter draws the best post and is versatile.  (4) MASTER OF EXCUSES gelding had a ton of trot late last race with no room to navigate; threat.  (8) HERE'S JOHNNY will probably be firing early and with any breather up front will be tough to keep off the board.

Race 9

(4) BO'S SO HOT well bred 4-year-old raced greenly last out but looks to be a good one.  (1) JUDE HALL pacer looks to be gaining confidence, switches to a new trainer, and gets the best post.  (7) BLUE RIVER put in a sharp effort off the bench and would be a threat with another similar effort.

Race 10

In a soft field with few contenders (4) SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR drew off easily against the same group. (1) LIQUEUR made the most money in the field last year and the trainer has had some horses jump up with some big efforts from time to time.  (3) CASINO COMP mare gets a good post and should save some ground before shaking loose late.
