Tioga Downs: Sunday 6/10 Analysis


(MEET STATS: 19 - 63 / $104.40)

Best Bet: SPECIAL T ROCKS (11th) Spot Play: WE WILL SEE (9th)

Race 1

(5) NEW YORK KITTY has been tackling some top notch fillies lately. This spot looks much cozier. (3) ANOTHER HANOVER seems to be one of the fastest off the gate. She should work out a trip. (1) SIR LBS Z TAM can certainly play with this group. That said, she doesn’t appear to have much speed and might be stuck first over.

Race 2

The winner of this race is truly anyone’s guess. For the record, (4) SIR SYNC Z TAM seems to have a decent late kick and this field appears to be full of possible early speed types. (3) WINBAK SPEEDI has a win over the track and is clearly sharp. (5) IZZY wasn’t going anywhere from post seven at Buffalo. He has a shot with a smooth trip.

Race 3

(1) EIGHTHUNRDOLARBILL blew out a huge mile at Buffalo over a sloppy surface. Everything from this barn is firing right now. (4) JK FINE ART has never missed the board in her career; main danger. (6) RAMALAMA has some talent. She could upset with the perfect setup.

Race 4

(3) CANAMERICA handled foes in this class two starts back. She has the inside draw edge over (6) MAJOR CRUSH, who also shows a win at this level back at Vernon. Looks like a two-horse race. (7) SEAFOOD SPARTAN gets a new pilot in the bike.

Race 5

(4) HEPBURN BLUE CHIP was stuck in some bad spots recently. She could definitely step up against this bunch. (6) SHA DELIGHT is as good as any of these. Will she gun to the front? (2) LIL MISS BOURBON is pretty consistent.

Race 6

(3) PANSPHOBIC comes off a nice win; one to beat again. (1) WING AND A SHARE has no recent form to entice, but hails from a strong barn and has a top driver. (2) TWIN B MY WAY has a shot with a clean trip.

Race 7

This is one nice race. Almost any of these mares is capable of winning. Considering the possible race setup scenarios and current form, (7) PUT ON A SHOW gets top billing. Most of the mares to her inside lack early speed, which should set her up on the engine rather easily. She seems likely to cut the mile or yield for the pocket. (1) KRISPY APPLE forms a powerful entry with (1A) ANNDROVETTE. The former could be in line for a good trip after letting a few others leave around her. The latter is stuck in post nine. Trip is the biggest question mark. (6) HIGHER AND HIGHER is an interesting player in this spot. She will likely be overlooked in the wagering and she is versatile enough to score on or off the pace.

Race 8

(5) MAJOR LOOK already posted a track record mile at Vernon. You may even get above even money on her because of the presence of (6) HANDSOFFMYCOOKIE, who was second in the Breeders Crown last year. She is a to filly. (4) L DIZ has proven she can go a big mile at time.

Race 9

After studying for a while, I’ve come to the conclusion that (7) WE WILL SEE should wind up in the best spot to win the Bettor’s Delight. Trainer Sam Depinto has clearly been aiming for this spot and brought his charge along slowly. Starting from post 10, he should get away in mid-pack and work out a nice cover trip. (2) RAZZLE DAZZLE went a big trip in the Molson and was given a week off to recover. He has a big chance in here at a price. (1B) FOILED AGAIN just keeps coming up big each week. You can never discount his chances. (3) ROCKINCAM is capable of a big mile. If he works out the right trip, watch out!

Race 10

(1) BLOWS ME AWAY and (7) TABLE GAMES jump off the page as the clear ones to beat. Box these two and head to the window. (8) JOYA FRA has an outside chance if the trip works out.

Race 11

(3) SPECIAL T ROCKS went another big mile at Hoosier in the Dan Patch and is dropped right back in the box. I worry that the $16,500 purse isn’t worth an all out effort, but his B game should be good enough to win today. Take the 3-5 and head to the window. (2) ROCKIN THE HOUSE comes off a nice score. (4) OK COMMANDER was a bit disappointing last week; can do better.

Race 12

(7) VOICE OF TRUTH has probably been facing slightly tougher in recent weeks. Tetrick in the bike only adds to the lure. (3) THE POKESTER ships in for Burke and Yannick hops in the bike. (1) COLOSSAL finished second in his last two starts at this level. (4) MCARDLE PARK & (9) KID CARSON have been racing well out of town.
