Race 5 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

MEET STATS: 189 - 552 / $985.30  BEST BETS: 32 - 45 / $105.90


Best Bet: IN THE CLEAR (6th)


Race 1

(1) RED CARPET DUDE has closed well in all of his recent efforts. Tonight he lands the rail and shouldn't let the opportunity pass. (3) PANDA MAN was used hard in the early stages last week and folded up late; toss that effort and he's right there with these. (2) FUTURE CHARACTER has plenty of class and would attract more attention with a catch-driver.

Race 2

(6) SPACED OUT exits series action at Tioga where he showed a win three back; he looks as good as any in here. (3) CREDIT TO ELGIN debuts for Brainard and picks up Sears. (8) SMOKE SMORE ships from Minnesota and appears to have plenty of speed.

Race 3

(3) ROCKLINDAROCK raced evenly last out at Philly and was a winner here in her prior start; she's missed a few weeks, however. (6) ROCKNROLL MEG has closed a ton in her two local appearances. (4) WINE N MCROSES debuts for the Andrew Harris barn but she's also missed time.

Race 4

(8) STORMONT LANCELOT free-falls in class and has plenty of ability; Sears should be attempting to leave with the veteran tonight. (4) TAGMEISTER finally exits the Billing series and gets a catch-driver in the bike. (7) BAMBINO HALL has also been facing better and hails from the live Julie Miller barn.

Race 5

(1) NORTHMEDO WINE GUY broke last out but his prior effort was good; maybe. (2) RAILEE KWIK has been totally empty, but so have the rest of these. At least he draws well. (3) BACK FROM VACATION may be ready for another vacation after his latest dull effort.

Race 6

(1) IN THE CLEAR held very gamely after a long uncovered trip last out and he deserves top billing based on that effort. (7) WELL DID may never win a race but he should hit the ticket. (5) I AM WILL ships from Tioga for Fluet off a very encouraging debut.

Race 7

(5) BEAUTIFUL LADY held for a board spot after a tough two-move effort last out; filly debuts for Fraley tonight and she looks like she can handle these. (1) LIFE OF SMILEY has just raced evenly in her two local appearances. (2) JANINNE was a solid pocket-sitting winner versus lesser for the Stratton brothers.

Race 8

(4) SAILING CRUISE kicked home nicely last out to be second best. Veteran has loads of class and appears overdue. (5) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY finally showed some signs of life in last and he can improve off that effort. Note that John and not Kevin McDermott is now the listed trainer. (2) CHEYENNE JEFFREY never wins but he does have speed and an inside draw.

Race 9

(8) DALLENBACH HANOVER drops in class again and Sears better be firing from this spot. (1) DR C'S Z TAM returns locally and lands the best post; threat. (5) LISTOWEL kicked home nicely last week and he can be a factor here.

Race 10

(2) PAMS LEGACY had good finishing pace through a quick last quarter in his debut for Sabot; gelding should be close enough to strike from this spot. (3) REPORT FOR DUTY N has forgotten how to win but he's always a player with these. (1) DREAMLANDS ART returns locally and is in for tag after two suspect efforts; be careful.

Race 11

(1) SHESAIDHESAIDISAID has shown major improvement in her last two, including a win last out at Philly; tough to overlook from this spot. (2) BREATHTAKING jogged last week versus similar; clearly the main threat here. (5) A LITTLE STARSTRUK could be a closing threat for the Fraley barn.

Race 12

(8) BEST SAID was a well-rated winner upon arrival holding off a decent foe; he may offer some value tonight from the outside post. (2) STAY UP LATE is a stakes-caliber colt from Casie Coleman and Sears drives; one to beat. (3) CHEYENNE SEEBER has evolved into a decent young racehorse.
