Racing Analysis

Saturday 28 2020

RACE 1

3- jumps up a little but he’s been in fine fettle, good shot to take the opener

10- gets the far outside due to his claiming tag, will have to work hard from out here

8- exits the GSY where he was getting some rugged trips, Dexter aboard now and that could bode well for this guy

RACE 2

9- beat these pretty handily before heading out to Philly, could leave and look for an early seat

4- claimed out of his last, new barn has a nice batting average and Dunn knows this horse

2- comes in from Yonkers and could relish the track change, could show up on the ticket at fair odds

RACE 3

10- just isn’t at the top of his game right now, price should be more inviting this time around

6- drops to the bottom condition, nice starting spot to catch a live cover flow

4- another that is taking a class drop, veteran has nearly 1.6 million in career earnings

RACE 4

3- that 15/1 ML looks awfully juicy, I would be on board at even half that price

6- came from the clouds to finish second at 39 to 1 last time, price won’t be that high this time

5- has been ok recently, could use a live tow to drag him into contention

RACE 5

7- slated for a big driver change, could very well put her across the wire first

8- has been competitive over at Yonkers, likes this track too!  Look for her to be flying late
1- mare always gives a good account of herself, inside draw keeps her close

RACE 6

7- LOVE this guy in this spot, has been battling some tough foes all year long

10- qualified well after taking a little break from competition, would be well inclined to float out

5- has been doing good things of late, can grind if he has to

RACE 7

6- drops a level and can really motor late, could be in line for a second over journey

10- has been racing on smaller ovals, does have a seasonal mark over the M1 strip 

5- hasn’t been that great recently, comes back to Club Med and this is his favorite track, price player

RACE 8

10- nice qualifier after racing in the midwest this summer, has speed to burn 

2- would love to put this guy on top based off his current form, just can’t however, seconditis

6- Burke trainee comes in from Hoosier, looks like he fits right in with this group

RACE 9

1- well traveled racehorse performs well on any size oval, gets the call here

7- gets a chance to stretch his legs out, could be flying late if the fractions are brisk

5- racing decently of late, could be overbet however, looking elsewhere for a winner

RACE 10

9- finicky horse has a ton of raw talent, Yannick gets along with him, could be sent down the road

7- versatile horse can leave or drag up, major player in this race

1- qualified ready after taking a few months off, lightly raced but he does have speed

RACE 11

1- blasted from the 10 hole last week and got tired late, drops and moves down to the rail now

8- ships in from Yonkers and it looks like he’s got a nice late move, hot pace helps his chances

2- another Yonkers shipper, could be in line for a nice inside journey

RACE 12


5- talented pacer rarely throws a bad effort, fits well at this level

7- three year old has been battling older foes all fall now, contender

6- has that big late move in his back pocket, can get the best of these with the right setup

RACE 13

4- gets the tepid call in a race full of lackluster performers

6- winless this year but he does have a decent late kick, price will be right

10- I know this veteran is going to win one of these nights, could be a bailout horse at boxcar odds

0.20 Pick 5

23568(10)/49/46(10)/36/178

0.50 Early Pick 4

23567(10)/56(10)/2(10)/12578(10)

0.50 Late Pick 4

9/1289/567/46(10)
