Best Bet (56 - 108 / $215.40): BABYSHOEBUYER (8th)

Spot Play: IT’S A BIG SECRET (6th)


Race 1

(3) SUN DREAM has been a force at this level in the last few months.  (2) INDIAN CREEK KATIE mare does her best work late and needs a good setup.   (1) LA SEMANA HANOVER just missed last out against a better bunch up in class.

Race 2

(2) YES INDEEDEE mare was a game winner last out and should only improve in her second lifetime start.  (1) INSIDEDUS SIDNEY was roughed up last out but has shown a decent burst of speed.  (4) ONELESSLONELYGIRL mare should be much closer turning for home in a weak field.

Race 3

(5) RACHAELS BLACKJACK was the driver's choice and raced gamely last out.  (6) JUSTLIVINTHEDREAM was good first start back off a layoff and then has went south.  The pacer has yet to win on the year but finds a weak and inconsistent field.  (1) RICHESS NESTOR picks up a good driver change; threat.

Race 4

(6) FLYING ROCKET looks to make it four wins in six starts for a hot barn.  (7) NANCYS SKYSCAPE gelding has recently stepped his game up and has been knocking on the door.   (5) MEADOWBROOK SAMSON has tailed off late in the year and would need more to hit the top spot.

Race 5

(7) STATE STREET LIZ mare should offer a much better price than last out and will be firing early.  (2) RYLEIGH'S LILLY went from awesome to empty last out but was the top driver's choice.  (1) JUST BY DESIGN has been racing gamely and finds a nice spot to do some damage; threat.

Race 6

(7) IT'S A BIG SECRET never got into the mile last out but will be much closer turning for home in a softer field.  (8) BLACKJACK RIVNDEL bumps up in class off two straight victories; fires early.  (9) CONZO does own a win at this level but is probably best used underneath.

Race 7

(8) RECOLLECTION gelding is just now back in racing shape off a very long layoff and has room to improve.  (4) ENCHANTRESS LADY mare has really lacked pop late and looks to offer low value; use caution.  (1) FALL CREEK BANDIT gets sent out for capable connections from the rail.

Race 8

(1) BABYSHOEBUYER raced awesome last out against a much better bunch.  If the pacer can duplicate that effort it's lights out.   (3) ROCK N KILO well bred filly got a victory last out but will need more.  (2) WESTERN BOUDOIR has shown big bursts of speed in his recent starts; threat.

Race 9

(4) NA ZDROWIE has been much better in a new barn showing more stamina late.  (2) YOUROLDLOV-ELETTER was the driver's choice and just missed at this level last out racing gamely.  (9) JOVANNA filly almost blew up the tote board last out; fires late.
