Best Bet (39 - 76 / $156.40): PARTY’S GOLD (4th)

Spot Play: NESSIE’S BOY (8th)


Race 1

(7) BANDS ALEXIS has a tendency to be short late but gets sent out for a hot pilot in a very weak field.  (5) BIGOLWEZEWEDDWESS two-year-old doesn't show much on paper but owns some ability.  (2) FOX VALLEY SKYLAR owns one victory in thirty-five career efforts; command a price.

Race 2

(9) GLISSANDO lightly raced 3-year-old gets sent out for red hot connections. (5) SUGARSWEET CHERRY had a brutal trip last race being far back early.  The nice-looking filly will be much closer turning for home.   (8) SAND IN MY BIKINI filly went a huge effort last start breaking her maiden; threat.

Race 3

(5) PERSUASIVE LOOK filly will sweep past everybody if she minds her manners.  (7) BANDS MUSE should offer a great price in a suspect field.  (1) FOX VALLEY ELAINE has yet to hit the board in her career but should be in line for a ground saving trip.

Race 4

(2) PARTY'S GOLD raced well last out and has some room to improve against a weak bunch.  (8) DUNESIDE LOUIE flashed some ability and just needs a smooth trip to be on the wire.  (7) PAST THE SHOOTER gelding makes his third start back off a layoff and should have more to offer.

Race 5

(1) PRAIRIE IBEEZABERT put in a big effort last out needing the start.  (7) IMASTARLIGHTDANCER lightly raced pacer has some upside in a soft field.  (8) DAVE'S ART four-year-old stallion has won two straight and will look to keep it going; fires late.

Race 6

(6) MOON BAY DANCER mare takes a significant drop in class.  The pacer was dominant at this level not long ago.  (4) SUN DREAM put in a much better effort last out closing up nicely.  (7) KITTY O'BRIEN ultra consistent mare loves to run down horses late but needs a good setup to hit the top spot.

Race 7

In a very tough race to handicap (2) YERMANOS has been sharp in recent starts and a similar effort puts him on the ticket.  (6) NANCYS SKYSCAPE has two wins in four starts at this level.  (10) DAVE'S BID gets sent out for connections that can't be overlooked.

Race 8

(7) NESSIE'S BOY didn't miss by much last out and should offer a fair price in an evenly matched race.  (9) CARDINAL WIND needs an aggressive drive and is one of the faster trotters in the race.  (4) BLUERIDGE LEGACY is just now rounding back into racing shape and could be sitting on an improved effort.

Race 9

(4) CASINO COMP was too far back last out against the same field.  The pacing mare owns a big burst of speed and just needs a good steer from a provisional driver.  (6) JOYFUL GAME four-year-old is very inconsistent from week to week but a good effort makes her the horse to beat.   (10) MEET ME TONIGHT has been getting better all year; fires early.
