Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: GALE FORCE HANOVER (8th)

Spot Play: ALLAMERICAN CHEER (11th)

 

Race 1

(5) ALADY FOR SURE has been tightened enough and faces quite the beatable field. (7) THAT WAS YOU qualified with winning effort and might be ready to roll first out this year. (2) SMOKEN STORMS has absolutely nothing to offer but it is slightly more than the rest of this sorry band has to offer.

Race 2

(1) ROCK ON TRIGGER has the pole for third time in last four and has been second twice from same spot. Just seems to be a step sharper than these. (4) HARD TO ROCK THIS can complete the `rock solid' exacta with similar effort to last time out. (5) MISS RILEY did not like the post two back can land a share from here.

Race 3

(2) SAND SONYA made a bold wide brush to gain a slight lead but was nailed on the wire. Same move crushes these. (1) BET ON BLUE makes debut after two qualifiers and would not have to be a tiger to surprise these. (3) URBAN M has to stay flat to maximize his chances.

Race 4

(6) WHAT DO YOU WANT gets the nod in wide open affair. Just missed extending his win streak to three in last week's near miss and best puts him back on track. (4) DUCHESS OFNORMANDY seeks fourth in a row and is the one to catch. (3) ROCKIN H CHEERY O has been banging at the door in all recent and can only improve with the inside post.

Race 5

(4) WHERE U WAS JAY had some traffic problems in last. Should be in better striking position tonight. (1) PAPA GRANDE has the pole and will have to be caught. (2) SOAKING UP THE SUN stayed flat in last and roared home. Should be the major late factor if he stays on gait.

Race 6

(2) MYSTERY RINGER was first over and tired three back, rallied well from bad post two back and was up close to the pace only to tire in last. Should get some cover and close strong enough to take the prize. (7) SMALLSREED has speed but will have to overcome the post. (9) T P MAXIMUS should get away well from here with speed inside of him and be a late factor on best.

Race 7

(3) BIG HARRY DEAL was parked from his life in last and has to get it done tonight. (9) WILDCATS TERROR will have to follow the top one out of the early traffic but qualifier two back points him out. (5) SOUTH PARK KID was unable to overcome post eight in last and just toured the track. Watch the board, he seems to go better when bet like he is going to go better.

Race 8

(2) GALE FORCE HANOVER will be short but sweet. (9) GIRLY LOCKS broke in last from similar post. Won last time off a break line and has to be considered. (3) TUSCARORA BLUEROAN showed some improvement in last and has a license to improve more second time out for the new barn.

Race 9

(1) NO SHENANIGANS has the pole, speed and is sharp as a tack at the moment. (2) THREE ROCK NIGHT has speed enough to stay close throughout. (7) GO SMARTY BRAND will have to overcome the post but hits the board on a regular basis.

Race 10

(1) JP ORAZIO was parked the mile in last and drew away. Cannot look past him in here. (6) CALL HIM CLING has been well bet in recent and hit the board all four since the qualifier. (2) SEE YA LATER DUDE was used pretty hard in last and should be tighter this time around.

Race 11

(7) ALLAMERICAN CHEER closed strongly to finish second three back, tired off a rail trip in ext but came back with good finish last time. Old bay mare seems primed for winning effort. (2) CONDOR HALL was a just-miss second two back from the pocket and toured the track in last. Seems capable on best and should go well.  (9) JAY JAY REDSKY has been a well-bet winner in two of last four and looms large with right trip.

Race 12

(7) DR JACKS SHACK takes a modest drop in company and get the nod. (9) CASIMIR LUCKYNUTZ tries post nine for third straight race and might surprise on best. (4) BROTHER BUD has only one win last two seasons but moves in off a bunch of bad posts and a piece of the action looms for this vet.

Race 13

(3) I RECKON SO has the speed and will be the one to catch. They may not be so easy but this one has been sharp in two of last three. (1) DIAMONDS REVENGE has the rail and looms as large stretch threat from the pocket off two second place finishes. (5) WORRIES STAY SMALL won last and faces slightly better. A win is hard to look past with this kind.

Race 14

(2) LIGHTNING LUCK has no excuse from here. Two and three back were uncovered adventures that ended poorly and last was from outside post. Will go well from here. (7) EAGLE FLIGHT brushed from the pocket in qualifier and got away quickly for convincing win. May need a tightener and a better post. (3) LITLE BIT SIDEWAYS moves in off a couple of post seven outings and will be a stretch threat.

Race 15

(6) MARTINAS QUEEN made a long and strong rally as the winner stormed away to a huge lead, kept coming and missed by less than one. (5) REL POSTAGE DUE pulled the pocket in last and roared away tired but lasted as the top one closed in on her. (1) LEGACY CHIP will be ideally placed to pick up the pieces if either of top two falter.

Race 16

(1) BEANS AND WEENIES made a lot of noise in last but needed one last burst to get it done. (5) SKEDADDLE HANOVER put in a huge parked the mile effort in last and could be the one standing if the top one runs out of gas. (4) TEVENAY HALL won qualifier like he meant it. Oldtimer should nab a win soon.
