Best Bet: GENESEE (1st)

Race 1 

(3) GENESEE moves into the Moreau barn and will likely be the favorite. He draws well and returns to the same class. (8) SHADOW BARAN is a top threat in this class. He’s fresh off the claim, won last start and has gate speed. (9) DUKE DID IT has been racing very well in recent starts. He’s got a good record this season and has raced very competitively in this class.

Race 2 

(3) KYLIE HALL moves into the Moreau barn as well and that’s the main reason for my selection. (6) MAGIC PEACH has been racing very well in recent starts. She’s fresh off a lifetime best victory and is versatile. (4) WIND STROLL has a terrific record this season, draws well and has the speed for this class.

Race 3 

(9) PAN LUIS OBISPO is a top threat in this dash. She comes out of McIntosh’s barn, gets Waples in the bike and has the highest earnings in this field. (8) JAN IT JACKSON has back-to-back wins and did so on the front end. She gets McNair back in the bike and has a good record this season. (7) MARLEE B has been racing very consistently this season and is very versatile. She’s been better late in the year and may offer a price.

Race 4

(1) ART PROFESSOR is overdue for his first win of the season and gets the rail. He has the speed, gets post relief and Jamieson is in the bike. (6) PEENIE comes out of the Johnson barn and hasn’t missed the board in his last three starts. (4) FRIDAYNIGHTFLIGHT raced very well last start in the new barn of Vrablic. He draws inside and has a good record this season.

Race 5

(7) COOL GUY drops in class and is overdue for a win. He’s at the bottom level and draws better. (5) RECKON IM READY trotted credible miles at Pocono despite not winning. He moves into the Vanderkemp barn and onto this circuit. (2) EXTRACURRICULAR draws well, moves into the Vrablic barn and drops in class.

Race 6 

(10) JA EL POCKETROCKET won by open lengths in a solid time over Western Fair in his latest. He’ll have to overcome post 10, but gets McNair in the bike and has gate speed. (5) SANTANNA ONE draws well and has closed nicely in his last number of starts. If he’s not too far back, I like his chances. (3) AUCKLAND FLYER has a terrific late kick in the mile and finally draws inside. He comes out of O’Sullivan’s barn and may offer a fair price.

Race 7 

(9) UP THE CREDIT has raced against the Grand Circuit all year and gets major class relief. He should win in this class. (1) FRANCESCHETTI gets the rail and raced very well last week. He’s back on this circuit for the second straight week and should provide a fair price. (3) PISTON BROKE gets major post relief and has hit the board in each of his last two starts. He’s a very consistent horse and has the sub-1:50 speed.

Race 8

(5) DAVIDS DREAM comes out of the McNair barn, draws well and has terrific gate speed. He has a good record this season and will draw a lot of attention. (3) MANCHESTER draws inside and moves into the Wallace barn. He’s fresh off a win and has the speed for this class. (6) OK FANTASTIC doesn’t have the best record this season, but has the speed. He’ll need a trip and comes from a high percentage barn.

Race 9 

(5) TAURUS DU PARC has raced very well and stepped up even more since arriving in the Paquette barn. He draws a nice mid-pack spot and will look for his second win this season. (6) SWISHNFLICK has a good record this year, comes out of the Steacy barn and is very versatile. (8) MO DEBRA set a new lifetime best just two starts ago. He comes out of Auciello’s barn and has terrific gate speed.

Race 10 

(5) CAMAES FELLOW set a sizzling 1:47 3/5 lifetime best last start in this Preferred class. He draws well again and looks like the horse to beat. (2) STATE TREASURER draws inside and hasn’t been worse than second in his last two starts in this class. (6) UPFRONT HOOSIERBOY has been the picture of consistency in this class. He’s versatile, comes from a top barn and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 11 

(3) THORN IN YOUR SIDE won two straight and has a good record this season. He draws inside and will look for another win at this level. (4) CRUIJFF moves into the Wallace barn, draws well and is capable of stepping up. (10) JETTINS DRAGON comes out of the Johnson barn and has a terrific record this season. He’ll have to overcome post 10 but has a solid late kick.

Race 12 

(2) AKOYA draws inside, comes out of Johnson’s barn and won in this class last week. (1) KINMUNDYS STRYKER gets the rail and has raced very well at the B tracks this season. He comes out of Shepherd’s barn and is capable of dropping more time. (4) WEATHER HANOVER is very lightly raced and shows a lot of potential. He’s well bred, comes out of Austin’s barn and won last start.

Race 13 

(3) ALEXIE MATTTOSIE is due for his first win of the season. He has shown the speed required, has the back class and drops down. (2) LIFEIMITTATESART draws well and has been racing very consistently in this class. He gets Davis, Jr. back in the bike and may offer a fair price. (7) RED BUGLER races better when he’s put in the race and has only missed the board once this season from seven starts.
