Harrah's Philadelphia: Pick Four Spotlight for Friday 4/5


$1 play:  1-7 / 1-5-8 / 6-8 / 3-7-8  $36

Race 7

IRA R couldn't last in his most recent against the 15's in his first start for Surick; immediately drops back down to the level of the claim and should be the one to run down.  Trainer/driver combination have been getting results.  T BOONE has been a hot commodity at the claiming box of late; an obvious contender from the rail if the new barn keeps him sharp.  WHAT A JOLT was very aggressive last week refusing to yield early and now drops; tough call at the anticipated short price.

Race 8

COOL THEIR JETS made her 3-year-old debut last out against the standout Jerseylicious and managed to finish just five lengths back in that small field; will be heard from.  DONTCH REMEMBER won in 1:55 here last year as a freshman; qualified back in 1:57 with Wagner in the bike and could be ready to beat these at first asking.  REGIL ELEKTRA has to be respected with that 7 for 8 record from Western Fair.  TERROR IN MOTION finally broke through last out with a win; faces better now.

Race 9

MR HASANI N couldn't track down Stateman N last week but still paced a :54 back half mile.  Two back was wiped out when it looked like he might have been making a move on Golden Receiver; chance to shine today.  JERRY'S BROWN GOLD almost got to Shoobee's Place two back and the winner of his most recent at Pocono came right back to win again at the Meadowlands.  I'M THE PIED PIPER had a useful first start back for Burke last week.  VOICE OF TRUTH just can't win; has now been second 7 times on the year.

Race 10

VERDAD finshed behind a couple Open types in his lone return qualifier.  Fits with these and Gingras still may take a shot despite being it being this ones first start back.  ISE THE BY BOY has generally done good work over this track and now makes his second start back over it; exits a race with a couple tough foes.  SIMON'S ARTIST has been involved in a number of 1:51 miles of late.  STAGECOACH HOLDUP is capable and one that I wouldn't mind having on the ticket if I was still live.
