Best Bet: PRETTY BOY (8th)


Race 1

(3) HERBIES WILDFLOWER powered up late last week and looks good to repeat here vs. similar. (7) WIZARD OF OSNEY set all the pace but was caught late by the choice. He could turn the tables with a different trip here. (1) DOMITIAN HALL was claimed by Vanderkemp for himself and could be an exacta factor here.

Race 2

(1) IN THE SHADOWS improved first time out for Moiseyev; notice the much quicker final 1/4; top call. (7) SANDY DE VIE faces much easier and is the one to beat. (4) WHITEGLANCE made a big middle move then pounced late for the win last week. She is a threat but often has gait issues.

Race 3

(5) NEVERSAIDIWASSWEET faces easier here and should be able to carry her speed a long way. (3) OLIVIAS WAY comes up tagged again following a big win and looks like the main threat. (6) FROSTY DELIGHT is capable but erratic. She should be passing horses late but needs a slowing pace to get by all of them.

Race 4

(3) HOPE FOR PADDY drops back down to her best class and should get lots of pace to chase here. (2) YES YOU CAN closed swiftly in her most recent qualifier and adds Lasix. She should be ready to contend. (10) DAZZLE AND DELIGHT has been racing well and offers some Pick 4 value here starting furthest out.

Race 5

(5) PARTY IN ROME exits a stakes series and should show much more vs. this group. (7) QUEENIFTHEJUNGLE showed dramatic improvement for trainer Brealey last time and could go even better here. (8) CRACKLIN ROSIE failed as the choice in the Miss Vera Bars Final last time but should have a much better chance here vs. non-winners of two.

Race 6

(9) MISSYS GA GA qualified faster than these rivals have been racing at night on Feb. 18. She could have everything figured out now. (3) SOUTHWIND ALICE was a winner here two back and should be prominent throughout here. (4) MERCURY FASHION looks well-prepped for this return to the races. Include her in early pick 4 tickets.

Race 7

(7) WAASMULA and (9) WITCH DALI both face easier here. Slight nod to the former due to the better post. (8) BET YA returns from a break and meets a field she can beat if she is fully cranked up.

Race 8

(5) PRETTY BOY raced very well for trainer Johnson first off the claim and looks best here. (9) O NARUTAC PERFETTO qualified sharply; notice the swift final 1/4. If trainer Nixon has fixed his gait issues, he can contend at a price here. (1) JUSTALITTLEFASTER faces his easiest company in several weeks and he should be able to hit the ticket vs. these rivals.

Race 9

(2) JORDIES HOPE went a big first-over trip vs. better last week. Expect a speed try here. (8) ROCK HER WORLD exits the same dash and should show more here in her 2nd start of the year. (7) TWIN B SWEETHEART exits a stakes series to face mostly easier and can complete the tri.

Race 10

(7) ARRAVISTA HANOVER should get sent early here and could take these a long way. (8) GOOD LUCK KATHY is another that should get good position at the start here and she can take a big chunk of this pot. (4) NINETTE B showed a bit of life at the end of her mile last time. She's another to consider in a wide-open dash. (2) B SANTANNAS LOVE should make the Super starting from the inside. (5) CHEEKIE should get put into this race earlier and is another to consider for the late Pick 4.
