Spot Play: FOLLOW A DREAM (5th)

Race 1

(1) JB'S GOLDEN BOY has yet to be competitive but that could change with the rail against a suspect bunch.   (2) PAPA GRANDE should be in line for a nice trip close to the front and is the only horse in the field with a win on the year.  (3) UBETTERUBETTERUBET could be sitting on a better effort second start back after the scratch.

Race 2

(4) SOAKING UP THE SUN nice-looking pacer has shown a good burst of speed and just needs to be close turning for home.  (7) EASTER BAY recovered nicely after an early bobble last out.  The 3-year-old will look to make it three straight; short price.  (1) IGOTTAGUYFORTHAT showed significant improvement in last start but is probably best used underneath.

Race 3

In a tough race to handicap (7) ROSE RUN NEMO has twice as many wins as the entire field and owns the best closing ability.  (4) CHRISTMAS KNIGHT trotted a decent mile prior to the broken equipment but tends to race evenly; command a price.  (1) AH STRIKING STRIDE gets the best post in a weak field.

Race 4

(7) ACTION AUBREE ROSA nice-looking filly scored her first win racing gamely last start and looks to have more ability than most of the field.  (9) GRAMMA'S STAR well bred 2-year-old was excellent in the qualifier and just needs to find a good spot out of the gate for a nice piece.  (1) METRO'S UPTOWNGIRL has some upside making her second career start in a new barn.

Race 5

(4) FOLLOW A DREAM gelding hasn't been in his last two efforts.  The pacer was much better a few starts back and could race back to that.  (1) WHERE U WAS JAY had no excuse last out controlling everything and should have had more late.  The pacer is likely to offer low value in a wide-open race.  (5) FEATURE MATCHUP was super last out gunning down the leader off a tough trip; threat.

Race 6

(4) MR ABERDEEN was an easy winner from a tough post and now faces a weaker field.  (9) DUNKS BROTHER is probably the only threat to the top choice with a smooth trip.  (8) CHAD gets a tough assignment but did show some ability winning a qualifier.

Race 7

(7) JULIE'S DAVINCHIE gets a monster driver change; big chance.  (5) MORE IDEAL gelding looks terrible on paper but is making his first start for a new trainer.  (4) DO WHAT has yet to win in twenty starts on the year but finds a very suspect bunch.

Race 8

(5) BACKDRAFT HANOVER raced big last out in this class and would be tough with a repeat of that effort.  (6) SHADY TOWN bumps down a level and has been pacing faster than most of the field. (2) BOILER BREES could be the sharpest horse in the race but gets sent out for a low percentage pilot.

Race 9

(7) MY JUSTICE races much better forwardly placed and that should be the plan.  (5) BROADWAY BOUND well bred trotter makes his second start back off a very long layoff and should show some improvement in a wide-open race.  (3) MISS RILEY mare has really disappointed the few times she got easy fractions unable to seal the deal; command a price.

Race 10

(6) LEE A BRYANT went a big effort parked the mile last out.  The six-year-old drops in class and just needs a good trip to pop.  (2) CMR WINDMACH faces significantly weaker but has not been competitive in a long time; threat.  (3) VANISCAPE raced good for the pilot at this level the start prior; fires early.

Race 11

(7) BELLE'S BECKY should offer a much better price than last out and has shown a big burst of speed.  (1) HERBEDAONE looks to take heavy tote action down in class and was the driver’s choice.  (9) DOUBLE A GLORIA mare faces much weaker and could be sitting on a good effort.

Race 12

In a field that has one combined win on the year (9) MR TAURUS should get to save some ground before making a run late.  (4) TYMAL BLING mare needs racing luck and a smooth trip in a very evenly matched field.  (5) VESPER AS is usually to far back to make up any ground but that should be different against this bunch.

Race 13

(1) BAY SHARK picks up a good driver change with the best post.   (3) ARTISTIC DREAMER went a big three quarters of a mile last out before fading.  The 10-year-old veteran just needs to ration out his speed early for his best chance.  (4) HALLIN GATOR has consistently hit the board at this level.

Race 14

In a field with few contenders (5) BROTHER BUD owns the best brush if he can stay pacing.  (9) JUNE'S SUNNY BOY should offer a fair price and is one of the faster horses.  (1) ROBIN DONTGET will look to benefit from the rail but is probably best used underneath.

Race 15

(5) MISS EVA CASH was better last out and gets a much better pilot than the trotting mare is used to.  (3) MOMA JEAN'S CROWN comes off a lifetime mark but is very inconsistent; use caution.  (7) LADY REV mare owns the most back class but has been racing evenly.

Race 16

(4) DRIVEN TO SUCCEED will look to go coast to coast against a soft bunch.  (1) SOUTH PARK KID would be the horse to beat with a different driver; threat.  (2) MONTOYA HANOVER has yet to win on the year but has gone some tough trips racing gamely.
