Race 3 - $7,500 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

5,6,9 / 3,5,8 / 9 / 6,7 = $18

Best Bet: EDIT (3rd)


Race 1

(2) SON OF A SPUR veteran trotter takes a big drop in class and will be used aggressively.  (1) MYSTERY XPOSED was awesome two back before coming up empty.  A good effort could upset.  (8) HERECOMESTHECHIEF raced much better last out but will need to find away into the race; use underneath.

Race 2

(2) DOOWRAH OMELET has a big burst of speed and the best driver.  (1) THE MACHSTER gets sent out for an inconsistent trainer and a provisional driver but does benefit from the best post.  (9) MAXIMUM VIKING could offer value on the bottom of your tickets.

Race 3

(4) EDIT was roughed up last out being parked the mile.  If the trotter gets an early lead it should be lights out.  (1) FORTUNE SAILOR gelding trotter needs a smooth trip for his best chance and is one of few contenders in the race.  (5) MUSTODIAN has been improved in his last two and could be a threat should the top choice falter.

Race 4

(1) JS TANGO had no luck out east but was much better when last seen at this track; threat.  (9) DUTCHTREAT HANOVER went a big effort last out showing pace on both ends of the mile.  The pacer will be tough to hold back if he races similar.  (2) SOAP SUDS takes a big drop in class and looks to be in line for a great trip up close.

Race 5

(5) NO SHENANIGANS gelding gets sent out for hot connections and will be tough to beat if he makes an easy lead.  (6) CYCLONE ASHORE was sharp earlier in the year before racing evenly in recent starts.  The 7-year-old got an easy victory last out and that could signal a return to prior form.  (3) HALLIN GATOR bumps back up in class after a win and could show some speed out of the gate putting him on the ticket; use underneath.

Race 6

(1) SOUTHBOUND gets a huge driver change and will look to take no prisoners early.  (2) COACH KEN five-year-old is very inconsistent from week to week but does get a big driver change.   (4) AT DAYBREAK could be in a great spot late to pick up the pieces with some racing luck.

Race 7

In a field with few contenders (6) LB'S ALAMERICANJOY makes his third start for proven connections and has yet to race his best.  (4) THORN IN YOUR SIDE picks up a top driver and will be driven very aggressively; threat. (9) HEZA STAR CRUISER looks to be in line for a ground saving trip but would need a lot of luck to hit the top spot.

Race 8

(9) HALL OF MEMORIES makes his third start back off a layoff, drops in class, and raced gamely last out.  (6) SAWBUCK HANOVER gets sent out for the top barn in the country against a much softer bunch.  (5) DUNGEON DRAGON has been unstoppable at this level; threat.

Race 9

(8) LUCKY CHARM mare dropped and popped and will look to keep the momentum going; fires early.  (5) MISS LULU BELLE takes a big drop in class but this is the level she belongs at.  (3) CABO is also back at a level where the well bred mare can be competitive.

Race 10

(9) HARE CRAFT just missed last out against tougher and should get a fast pace to close into.  (6) CHASE THE SUN will be part of an early skirmish that could get ugly; fires early.  (7) FULL CODE will have instructions to not stop till he gets the top which could leave him vulnerable late.

Race 11

(6) ACTION-BROADWAY millionaire mare has tons of back class and flaunted it last out.  The 7-year-old should be blasting out of the gate for her best chance.   (7) RUN AND TELL PAP just missed last out racing gamely from the same post and will be firing early.  (9) KAHOKU has really stepped his game up this year but is probably best used underneath.

Race 12

(2) HOOREI FOR FLASH should offer a big price even dropping in class.  The lightly raced pacer is one of few with upside in a very tough race to handicap.   (5) YOULL THINK OF ME makes his second start for a red hot trainer; threat.  (7) U BETTOR WATCH OUT could get a lot of play based off his last few lines at a lightning fast Pocono track; use caution.

Race 13

(5) MYBROTHERGEORGE well bred pacer will look to turn it around for himself and his stable down in class.  (2) ACTION METRO MAX is reunited with a top driver off a big effort.  (1) SOMECAM owns a big brush but seems to be hit or miss late.

Race 14

In a wide open race on paper (2) BET ON ART gets post relief with a better pilot; threat.  (1) DIAMONDS REVENGE has been pacing some decent miles but doesn't have much to show for it; command a price.  (9) DERINGER GUN could be in a good spot to hit the ticket late.

Race 15

(6) NUTMEGS GIGILO faces much easier competition and has shown a big burst of speed despite being winless on the year.  (4) BIG HARRY DEAL finds a really weak field; versatile.  (9) SASSY OSBORNE could have a tough time navigating the second tier and will offer low value.
