Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (49 - 97 / $193.90): FLYING ROCKET (8th)

Spot Play: COLE BLUE (9th)


Race 1

(5) MOON BAY DANCER gets a huge driver change in a really weak field.   (1) TWILIGHT DELIGHT gets a provisional pilot but is capable of a good effort against this group.  (7) RJ'S IRISH LASSIE is 0 for twenty on the year but will offer a big price underneath.

Race 2

(5) MAYFAIR SOPHIE three-year-old filly trotter was a very nice winner last out.  If she minds her manners she's on the ticket.  (7) BANDS ALEXIS will look to make it three wins in as many starts for a new barn.  (3) A LOCAL BAND rarely wins but has been knocking on the door in two straight.

Race 3

In a field with few contenders (4) LYNRAE JAZMIN should offer the better price and owns the fastest win in the field.  (6) BUBBALA has been inconsistent as of late but should be a player with a smooth trip.   (5) YOUROLDLOV-ELETTER has raced gamely in two straight but does bump up in class.

Race 4

In a suspect field full of question marks (8) SPEED RACER was the drivers choice and exits a solid qualifier closing good ground the last half mile.  (5) FINNTASTIC just raced evenly last out sitting the rail but finds a really weak bunch.  (7) LITTLE MAN MORAND is one of few with a win at this level but really folded easily off of very soft fractions last start; command a price.

Race 5

(8) JOYFUL GAME mare has beaten this bunch with consistency all year long.  (4) STAGE STAR gets sent out for a high percentage barn and has flashed ability earlier in the year.  (6) BABYSHOEBUYER just missed at this level last out but needs more to hit the top spot.

Race 6

(4) THREE NEW DAWNS doesn't look like much on paper and should offer a monster price.  The pacer could be ready for a better effort third start over the track.  (5) REALLY LUCKY well bred pacer has recently shown signs of turning it around; threat.  (3) NIP PAN TUCK is 0 for the year but finds a wide open and evenly matched field.

Race 7

(7) OUR MISS LILY mare has won three of four at this level since the layoff.  (5) LADYBONES just missed to the top choice last out and will probably offer the better price.  (2) DONTMESSWITHANGEL would need a lot of racing luck to upset; use underneath.

Race 8

(8) FLYING ROCKET could race up to his name racing for new connections who are lethal in this scenario.  The pacer takes a huge drop in competition.   (2) BLUE RIVER just raced evenly last out but has been knocking on the door at this level.  (1) GLIDED TOWARDS ME looks to be in line for a nice ground saving trip.

Race 9

(10) COLE BLUE mare owns a class edge on the field when right but will need to find a way into the race.  (1) GET THE TERROR was the driver's choice and is capable of a good effort.  (9) MIND ERASER was brutalized last out after missing the gate but has shown a big burst of speed.

Race 10

(2) AJ GET'S THE MONEY just missed at this level last out and owns good early gate speed.  (6) WOOP D DO BAZZLE went a big effort being used multiple times racing gamely all the way to the wire.  (7) RUSSELL L gelding probably owns the best late kick in the race but needs a good setup.

Race 11

(7) INDIAN CREEK KATIE gets a big driver change and should offer a fair price.  (6) MEET ME TONIGHT filly has been progressing throughout the year and drops back down to a much easier level after being competitive up in class.  (1) VAL'S WAY filly is one of few threats in the race and gets the best post.
