Racing Analysis



6- looks the best here, price will be short however 

1- stayed inside last week and came flying on the end, same tactics tonight?


7- hikes up in claiming price for sharp connections, could be up to the task 


7- disappointed in his last, probably needed that one and should be better tonight 

8- third start back off the shelf and should be primed for a big effort 


4- stayed inside last week and didn’t have an answer late, should get a more aggressive steer now 


9-  could easily wake up at this bottom condition, use

2- decent horse gets a regular driver back, could provide some value 


3- has been getting close but can’t get over the hump, better inclined to use underneath 


1- nice effort in his first back off the layoff, should be even better tonight 

2- third start back and takes a little drop in class, will be heard from 


3- gray is at the top of his game, drops back to a better condition, will stay inside and be coming late 


9- will need a hot pace to run at, should be very dangerous if she gets it 

5- jumped it off while making a first over bid in her last, could make amends 


6- has two wins this year in two tries, will need to get a trip to make it three in a row 


7- is always tough as nails, should be headed for the lead and will be tough to collar

6- is versatile enough to close or race up close, in good form 


4- went a pretty big trip in his comebacker, should move forward off that mile 


7- was driven aggressively coming off the layoff and got tired late, should have more stamina tonight

5- definitely fits at this level, will be a big threat to my top pick 


4- snuck by at the end of the mile last Saturday to score the victory, repeat minded


3- was given a soft drive in his first start of 2021, should be primed to go now 

5- YG does well with him and this starting post gives him options, plays well here


2- was put on the point last week and had the goods, sharp horse looks to repeat 


7- was absolutely flying at the end in his first start this year, Burke trainee gets the nod in a good betting race 

3- he’s a horse for the course, has a mark of 49 and a piece here this year 


2- ships in from Delaware in top form, inside trip likely


1- gets the rail draw and fits well at this level, top honors 

6- throws pretty consistent efforts week in week out, will be close at the end


8- could use a hot pace to run at, in good enough form to make noise against these


2- he’s due for a win, this spot seems a little bit soft, could be the best tonight 

6- has been closing for minor spoils at Woodbine, ships south of the border and fits well


1- has raced himself back into shape, rail draw will give him a shot to stay close on the hike

RACE 12/13 + Multis

Race 12

7- short field gives him a pretty big advantage here, solid choice 

1- gets a driver upgrade and will be heard from, upset possibility 

3- has really done good things this year, chance to show he belongs at this top level 

Race 13

1- claimed yet again and retains the services of DD, makes a lateral class move 

6- is lightly raced but he’s fast, will be sent to the point and will go as far as he can

5- came in from Dover and won with ease, takes a little class hike and fits well here too


0.20 Pick 5


0.50 Early Pick 4


0.50 Late Pick 4
