Wednesday September 23, 2020

Race 1

9- drops a little and appears to be faster than these

3- third start on Lasix and looks to turn things around here

 

1- has been burning public money at Ocean, gets the rail and a top driver

RACE 2

2- drops and is sure footed which always helps, has a mark at Rosecroft this year 

9- qualified well and will need to be put into play from out here 

1- tightened up at a fairgrounds earlier this month, should be on the ticket

RACE 3

6- has been scuffling at Ocean but these are easier, wake up call coming

4- racing well right now, has to avoid being first over 

 

5- well traveled mare hasn’t done much this year, can be used on the ticket here however

RACE 4

1- solid prep with a nice last quarter at Philly, appears to lay over this bunch 

6- that qualifying time last Wednesday puts him in the mix here 

 

9- comes in to this off a decent second at Harrington, hot pace will help

RACE 5

3- three year old stakes filly is racing great right now, big shot here 

4- another that is doing good work right now, six out of seven on the board this year

 

6- hasn’t won one this year but she’s been trying hard, should close into the tri/super

RACE 6

4- has been going some decent times while touring the east coast, top choice 

7- has been getting checks with regularity, fits well with these

 

2- gets an inside post and it’s been a while, could sit in and grab a slice at a price

RACE 7

2- took a nice mark here earlier this year, I’m on board 

3- will be showing speed and trying to control the tempo of this race 

 

9- doesn’t win much but could benefit from a hot pace here if she catches a live cover flow

Race 8

4- wired up an easier bunch at Harrington last out, confident now 

6- versatile mare is rarely far off at the wire, has options here

7- took a 53 and change mark here earlier in the year, needs some things to go her way

RACE 9

7- longshot status but seems to fit well in a wide open race

2- inside draw and could trip out here

 

1- only 1 for 26 over the past two seasons, one of many that could win here 

RACE 10

4- veteran mare always gives it her best shot, top selection 

2- usually throws a good last quarter mile so could use some quick fractions to run at

 

3- will offer fair value and looks to land in the exotics

RACE 11

3- solid qualifier and looks like he could be ready off the bench

4- hasn’t won yet this year but he’s been knocking on the door

 

5- starting position gives him some options, must use

RACE 12

6- legit chance in this Open level trot, I’ll throw him a bone

3- big shot to take this as well, fits like a glove 

 

7- comes in from Pennsylvania and has the credentials to do some damage here

RACE 13

7- Chicago invader looks to make an impact on arrival

3- has been racing ok over at Chester, player here 

 

5- can definitely be used here but I’m more inclined to play underneath

Race 1

♞ 6) Took a bad shuffle last time. Just needs clear sailing
♞ 5) Second start should be even better than her debut
♞ 4) Right there every week

Race 2

♞ 4) Raced well off the shelf. This is a crush spot
♞  9) May take money but is one that just goes along with them
♞ 7) Got stung and paid the price last time. Should fire again

RACE 3

♞ 5) Gets a big driver switch after being parked. Drop and pop
♞  7) Another class dropper but she doesn’t win much
♞  6) The speed is there. The layoff is the concern

RACE 4

♞ 5) Gets back on a semi-regular schedule and gets a drop in class
♞ 3) Much needed class relief. She still looks to need a trip
♞ 4) Comes in off a layoff and decent qualifier. Exotics only today

RACE 5

♞  6) This is a bet back and you get a class drop
♞  2) Likes to chase. Driver change is key
♞ 1) Has early speed and should end up in the two hole

RACE 6

♞ 4) Has issues but the qualifier was massive
♞ 3) Big driver change and good post. Must use here
♞  1) Class drop helps. He needs a wakeup call

RACE 7

♞2) Huge drop in class. Big favorite here
♞ 6) Got stuck inside last week. Frank will have clear sailing tonight
♞ 4) Does enough to hang around for minors again

RACE 8

♞  7) He was used hard early last week. Expect another aggressive drive
♞2) Has been staying close at this level. Similar tonight
♞  5) Won the last time he raced at this level. Price is right

RACE 9

♞  1) Faced some tough winners this season. Inside post helps here
♞ 2) Was rolling late last week. Expect him to be closer tonight
♞ 6) Just has to stay flat to have a say again

RACE 10

♞ 4) Fractions killed him last week. Just needs a breather
♞ (5) Makes sense to get put in play after being shuffled
♞  6) Will get a nice setup tonight

RACE 11

♞ 6) Has been sharp and may offer better value tonight
♞ 4) Gets a better post and will closer
♞ 7) Perfect trip looks unlikely this time

RACE 12

♞ 8) Did all the work last week. She gets cover tonight
♞  9) Will look to follow my top choice the whole way
♞ 2) Brings exotics value from the inside with solid form

RACE 13

♞  3) Post shift is enough to warrant me playing on top here
♞ ) Can sit inside and make a race of it late

RACE 14

♞ 2) Had an easy trip last time. Watch for more aggression
♞ 4) Excellent form should continue, even with the class hike
♞ 5) Another in good form. Tough to toss completely
