Spot Play: SAUCY BROWN (11th)

Race 1

(2) CIRO'S PRIDE is one for sixty-two lifetime but has shown a decent burst of speed and will offer a monster price in a weak field.   (8) AIRZOOMS IMAGE gelding is probably the horse to beat but has a tough task ahead from the far outside.  (3) UNLIMITED WINNER has flashed some ability but gets sent out for a low percentage pilot.

Race 2

(6) ST LADS LUCY well bred filly could show some improvement in her second career start.  (3) STORM CRUISER four-year-old pacer put in a nice qualifier and has some upside in his first lifetime start.  (8) SLIDN TO YA RONNIE picks up a significant driver change but needs to find a way into the race.

Race 3

(5) BELLE'S BECKY mare takes a big drop in competition and has been competitive against better.   (1) STAGS LEAP ten-year-old trotter raced well in his first start back off a long layoff and has room to move forward.  (2) TRIPOLI has not won a race in quite some time but picks up the top driver; command a price.

Race 4

(5) FOREVER GOOD should offer a nice price down in class for capable connections.  (3) CYCLONE ASHORE gelding makes his first start for new connections; threat.   (4) U BETTOR WATCH OUT really disappointed last out having little to offer late; use underneath.

Race 5

(1) TAZAWA nice looking pacer makes his third start back off a layoff, draws the best post, and benefits from the top driver.  (4) HOP ZIP was close to the top choice last out and should also improve after a start off a layoff.  (5) UPTOWN ROMANCE showed an excellent burst off the gate last out; threat.

Race 6

In a tough race to gauge (1) E R SISTER could offer nice value off some bad looking lines.  The pacer's win last year was against much better.   (3) MEPHISTO WALTZ gets sent out for leading connections in a weak field.  (4) FOREVER LOVER has just been racing evenly but picks up a top driver.

Race 7

(2) BLUE SCOOTIN MATT raced well last out parked the mile and now drops to the bottom level.  (9) PANDAPOCKET should be in line for a ground saving trip at a big price.  (7) ROCKY MY BOY could have a shot late with some pace to close into.

Race 8

(2) SBM GEORGIAN STAR mare needed her last start off a layoff and should be ready for a better effort.  (8) GET PACKIN will look to make it three straight wins at this level.  (5) BALLYKEEL MIKE gets sent out first start for a hot barn and should offer value.

Race 9

(2) LUCKY DANISH went a lifetime best last start and picks up the top driver.  (1) MJS VICTORY JODY mare looks to be improving and also set a career mark last out showing a big burst of speed late.  (5) SAMS YANKEE has been knocking on the door but the top driver opted elsewhere.

Race 10

(1) FIFTYSHADESDARKER looks to just now be back in racing shape off a layoff and faces much easier.   (4) MARTIN HANOVER picks up a top driver but looks to need more to hit the top spot.  (9) ASTOUNDING HANOVER has just been racing evenly; use underneath.

Race 11

(9) SAUCY BROWN just missed at this level last out racing gamely.  (4) BET ON ART takes a significant drop in class and should be much closer turning for home.  (1) BLESSING STONE gets post relief with the top driver.

Race 12

(6) ANDY BARAN pacer takes a big drop in class and could have some excuses in his last few.  (1) DEXTER JIG has been competitive against slightly better and gets the best post against a suspect bunch.  (2) JUDE HALL has been dreadful in his last two but is capable of a big effort for an inconsistent trainer.

Race 13

(7) JACK ATTACK drops to the bottom level and will be used aggressively.  (6) HYD-DAT SHOOTER four-year-old makes his second start in a new barn and was the top driver's choice.   (8) PUTNAMS STORM is capable of much better and just needs to find a way into the race.

Race 14

(6) SOMBRERO HALL got in an acclimating start over the track and should be ready for a better effort with the top driver.  (4) CHARITY KID six-year-old mare owns a class edge on most of the field when right but could need a start.  (2) T P MAXIMUS bumps up in class off decent effort; use underneath.

Race 15

(4) STORMY GHOST has a good history at this level; big chance.  (2) I RECKON SO has just been racing evenly but gets a good starting post.  (1) TYMAL TRITON picks up a top driver with the rail.
