Jeff's Contenders saturday 11/25/22


8- ships in from Plainridge where he’s been racing well, picks up DD which’ll help too!
7- he’s no stranger to the M1 strip, classy enough to go with these
3- just getting back into race shape, dangerous if he’s over that sickness


1- could offer some value in here, has been drawing bad posts at Yonkers
4- no chance from the outer rail last time, worth a look now
10- upset the apple cart last weekend, will be a square price again, fast pace helps


8- tough race, high percentage barn and has been battling the top mares at Dover
7- YG’s choice and she’s consistently close at the wire
1- ships in from Yonkers and seems to fit well from the rail, could trip out


1- possible upsetter here, was way too far back and still closed well in her last
9- prohibitive favorite here, racing super right now
8- is going to have to work out a trip here, could be coming late with the right setup


9- was head and shoulders the best two weeks ago, short price but looks solid
2- just did enough to get by in the Valley Victory, has to deal with Volume Eight now
5- will be a big price here, worth a stab if you’re looking to beat the logicals


2- qualified ready for her swan song, wishing her the happiest of retirements
1- she’s a good one, will be looking to spoil Atlanta’s going away party
3- solid trotting mare is always worth tossing on your tickets


3- had to go the long way around last week in the elim, has her way with these tonight
9- couldn’t make any headway in the stretch after a slow opening half, use now
10- fell asleep in the pocket two weeks ago in the slop, the talent is there


3- really liked the way he came flying last week, maybe they’ve got him right now?
7- he’s never been better than he is right now, price will be right again
5- he’s gonna take a brunt of the betting, could romp.. could stop.. I’ll look elsewhere


2- adds Lasix and looks like she’s ready for a big try, will be very tough to collar
8- she’s gotten good again this fall despite being lightly raced, logical play
5- she’s no slouch either, nice starting draw and has options here for TMac


4- gonna be fun to watch him tonight, goes out in style!
7- he’s been pretty good recently, one of five Burke horses in this race
6- he’s a horse for the course, qualified well and should have a shot at landing in the tri


5- I loved him last week and Scotty Z. took it easy with him, gloves come off tonight
1- blew right past off a pocket trip last Saturday, he’s peaking right now
4- very sharp right now as well, will probably blast off and try to trip out

RACE 12, 13, 14 & Multis

8- horse can grind with the best of them, drops down into a winning spot here
4- he likes this oval, D. Miller’s choice and will be a much better price
1- went a good mile chasing a bear last weekend, similar trip likely

Race 13

1- TT’s choice over a few others in here, drops after running into a tough winner
2- he’s good enough to beat these, loses Tetrick but gains a set of capable hands
3- went a long mile but hung in there tough in his latest, capable of grinding

Race 14

5- looks like he’ll enjoy this softer class, won handily here earlier this month
7- stretches out, he’s been battling some stiffer competition
4- comes in from Pennsylvania where he’s been racing pretty well, must use


0.20 Pick 5

0.50 Early Pick 4
