Racing Analysis

Saturday October 24

 

RACE 1

4- fits like a glove at this level and gets my top billing here

8- has a decent closing kick but could be at the mercy of the pace

 

9- taking a considerable drop but does have breaking issues, demand value 

RACE 2

9- this guy has really stepped it up this season, will need an honest pace to run at

4- hasn’t been doing much lately but this looks like a turnaround spot

 

2- drops and draws inside, could very well hit the ticket

RACE 3

3- endured a brutal trip in her last, moves way in and looks like a nice play here

7- three year old came from far back to almost get it all last time, big shot again

 

1- draws the pole position and will be looking to sit a pocket ride here 

RACE 4

2- bucks post 10 and rates the edge here, TMac aboard now

4- debuts for a new stable off the claim, tab the tote here

 

1- comes in from Minnesota and has done well here in the past, should offer some nice value 

RACE 5

7- big driver change after racing well in his M1 debut, versatile as well

3- likes this race track and in a good position to share here

 

10- trainer hands the lines over to Allard but he draws post 10, positive intent 

RACE 6

6- he’s better when he blasts and that’s what I’m expecting here

2- working his way back into shape but could take a brunt of the betting action

 

1- not sure you’ll get 15-1 on this guy but he does merit consideration from the rail 

RACE 7

6- ships in from Yonkers and should fit right in with this group, top billing here

8- drops and this looks like a spot for a turnaround, will likely show speed

 

2- class horse is always capable, had a tough trip last time out 

RACE 8

3- double moved to score the win last week, steps up but I like him right back

9- fourth start off the year layoff and could show more on the class drop

 

8- well traveled and will offer decent value in the contest, has some options here 

RACE 9

5- all or nothing with this guy, will get bet down, hoping TMac can keep him together

8- Pennsylvania shipper comes in for the Burke barn, will be close at the wire

 

9- gave a good account of himself coming in from Aces, hot pace would help his cause 

RACE 10

3- super sharp right now and will be pointed towards the engine, I’m on board

1- Todd M stays aboard and I like that, will be up close throughout

 

9- not sure what happened last week? Right back in so I’m sure it wasn’t too serious 

RACE 11

8- LOVE this guy tonight! Comes in from Yonkers where he was racing well in a very tough class

10- another that ships in from Yonkers, has to be put into play

 

9- third start on US soil, seems to be progressing nicely 

RACE 12


3- has been showing speed and his form is decent, gets the nod here

7- old timer has been racing well lately, could very easily pull this off

6- debuts for a new stable off the claim, looks for clues on the tote board

 

Race 13

4- takes a drop and that could be the difference here, in capable hands

2- veteran mare always gives a good account of herself, odds will be inviting

 

6- entered for a tag and seems to fit right in here, high percentage trainer as well
