Best Bet: BROWN BRINNY (9th)


MEET STATS: 20 - 122 / $209.50

BEST BETS: 4 - 11 / $22.90

Race 1

(1) DUEL IN THE SUN moves down the ladder and draws much better. Can boss these at his best. (2) CHEYENNE REIDER was quite sharp for place money recently; main player. (7) FIERY LUSTRE N has wheeled off two straight victories against lesser; post hurts but he is capable.

Race 2

(1) PIECE OF THE ROCK did not fire in his previous outing but this veteran did get the job done two trips ago; threat. (3) INSPIRATION VIEW came very wide at the 3/4 marker and he was second best in his latest; contender. (4) AMERICAN ISLAND will need a better trip then in his last try; consider.

Race 3

(6) NATURAL LEDA showed signs of life finishing second last time out. Gelding can improve with Brennan at the helm. With a well judged drive he can make tonight a winning one. (3) ROYAL HEART gets serious post relief and that might help his cause; player. (2) ELECTRIC WESTERN was third best last time around and now he moves to the 2-hole; watch out.

Race 4

(8) SECRECY is clearly knocking at the door based on his last three outings. Gelding keeps Bartlett in the bike in order to greet the cameraman for pictures he needs a favorable trip from the 8-hole; capable. (1) CLASSIC AMERICAN N took charged turning for home but was nailed for win honors last time out; player despite the rise in class. (2) MR MATCH ON BEACH Consistent gelding has good speed and gets the services of Brennan; not out of this.

Race 5

(2) LUCIANO N flashed good early zip in his last try. Gelding appears to be heading in the right direction so if the right trip comes his way he could get the job done. (5) BORDER CONTROL A very game for the placing recently and he must be respected in here. (4) STATHAM N tipped outside at the 3/4 pole on his way to victory last time out; could take another.

Race 6

(2) STOLEN CAR was nailed at the wire for all the glory last out. Ten year old seems to be in sharp form and he could get back into the winner's circle with a well judged drive. (5) ROCKET J Meadowlands invader has good speed and Bartlett has the assignment; big threat. (3) ROCK ABSORBER gets the luck of the draw and he has tactical speed; watch out.

Race 7

(5) CAROBBEAN PACETRY Three solid efforts in a row for this seven year old mare. She has every right to mow them down for all the marbles. (4) LIGHTNING MACH N brushed at the 1/4 mile pole and that might have hurt her chances last time around; player. (1) DEWAR N SODA just got up for the victory in her latest; don't overlook from the rail.

Race 8

(6) ANNABETH She is knocking at the door based on her last two tries. If she gets the favorable trip she can make tonight a winning one. (8) SELL A BIT N was very tenacious for the score last out and now she draws door number eight to make it two straight; possible. (7) ALL ABOUT MADI took the pocket route on her way to glory recently; consider.

Race 9

(3) BROWN BRINNY is seeking her first score of the year and this might be a perfect spot for this mare to take these to task for all the cash. (2) MISS IRISH ROSE A Speedy six year old miss will try to take these down the road; big threat. (1) ARMBRO COURAGE N rallied strongly but she could not get past the winner in her last try; don't overlook.

Race 10

(5) REGIL ELEKTRA was caught at the wire at odds on last time around. Mare has put in two good outings and she has every right to be the boss over this group. (4) PRETTY IMAGE gets class relief and she needs to revert back to her January 19th trip; major player. (7) TRUTH AND LIBERTY gets a tough draw but this miss has done well in her last two tries; must be considered.

Race 11

(7) ARDIE B SPEED has tactical speed and that might be what he needs to overcome the 7-hole. Good to see Bartlett at the helm where these two have had good success; the pick. (5) ONE THROUGH TEN seems to be coming around based on his previous start; contender. (1) ARMABLUECHIPBOY N did not fire in his last one but now he is back on the fence where he was a good third two tries ago; beware.

Race 12

(2) KNOW IT ALL was uncovered at the 1/2 mile pole and she lost all chance last time out. Pacing miss could be ready to fire her best effort if she gets the right trip. (4) MACH IT A PAR takes a major drop in class and she does fit well in here; solid threat. (1) BETABCOOL N is also on the dropdown and moves to the pole position; factor.
