# 2 DEE DAY 2/1

# 5 AVENUE MONTAIGNE 4/5

# 1 AUNT NEANIE 9/2

My choice for this event is DEE DAY. Shows solid Equibase Speed Figures on average overall when compared with the rest of this group of animals. Looks very good versus this group of horses and should be one of the leaders. With a decent 58 speed figure last time out, will surely be a factor in this affair. AVENUE MONTAIGNE - Could provide positive profits based on decent recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 62. Reason to like this filly as she has in the irons one of the best jocks using winning percentages over the last 30 days. AUNT NEANIE - Ought to be given a shot based on the quite good speed rating put up in the last competition.

# 5 CHATTERING CLASS 9/2

# 6 DIRTY SWAGG 8/5

# 2 BOSTON HUMOR 5/2

My pick in this race is CHATTERING CLASS. He ought to be given a chance given the decent speed figs. This gelding looks like a longshot play. Should expect this horse to be right there on the wire versus these racers. DIRTY SWAGG - Could provide positive dividends based on strong recent Speed Figures with an average of 71. This gelding with McMahon in the irons makes him a definite contender. BOSTON HUMOR - Has very good early pace and will most likely fare strongly against this field. Could best this group based on the Equibase Speed Fig - 80 - of his last race.

# 4 JUBILANT JULIE 9/5

# 3 PERFORMANCE WRITER 5/2

# 6 MY SHARP MISTY 8/1

JUBILANT JULIE supports the wager in here. Hard to pass on this filly with Mora in the irons. Mora will probably be able to get this filly to break out early in here. Ought to be given a chance based on the formidable Equibase speed fig put up in the last contest. PERFORMANCE WRITER - Should definitely be given a shot in this competition if only for the very good speed fig garnered in the last competition. She has been racing soundly recently while recording solid Equibase speed figs. MY SHARP MISTY - Fullerton has this filly racing well and is a solid pick based on the very strong Equibase Speed Figs earned in sprint races as of late. Is tough not to look at given the company run in lately.



Race 4 2:59pm - Maiden Claiming - 5.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $10,000 Class Rating: 68

FOR MAIDENS, FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 119 LBS.; OLDER, 123 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $15,000, IF FOR $12,500, ALLOWED 2 LBS.

# 1 SONGANDAHEART 3/5

# 6 SONATA SLEW 10/1

# 2 FLAMEKEEPER 20/1

SONGANDAHEART looks like the bet in here. Has garnered formidable Equibase Speed Figures in dirt sprint races in the past. With Hamilton getting the mount, watch out for this horse. Has strong early speed and will almost certainly fare solidly versus this field. SONATA SLEW - Overall, has one of the best earnings per start in dirt sprint races in this lot. If you gander closely, this one has some longshot potential. FLAMEKEEPER - Eoff and Valdezjiminez have a good win percent together.

# 6 THISCATSATALKIN 8/1

# 3 OUR ROMEO 10/1

# 2 MOON GUN 2/1

THISCATSATALKIN looks to be a respectable contender and is a very strong value-based bet given the 8/1 line. Is worth looking at and may be a bet - strong Equibase Speed Figures (82 average) at today's distance and surface recently. As of late Mora has been hot which may give the edge to this gelding. With a nice class rating average of 86, has one of the strongest class advantages in this group. OUR ROMEO - Will probably go to the front end and could never look back. Chacaltana has strong numbers that point to this gelding to be a strong contender. MOON GUN - Quite good try today with second time Lasix. Sharp jock with handler figures make this horse a very strong selection.



Race 6 3:55pm - Allowance - 5.0 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $21,000 Class Rating: 88

# 5 NEVER LATE FLYER 7/2

# 7 FINAL TIME 5/1

# 10 SKY DRAMA 6/1

NEVER LATE FLYER is my choice. FINAL TIME - Looks to have a quite good class edge based on the most recent company kept. SKY DRAMA - Players should probably take a good look at this one as this colt has one of the best win percentages at this distance in this group. In this field, this horse is highly ranked earnings per start in turf sprint races.

# 5 STAR DOG 10/1

# 3 BIJOULINN 7/5

# 8 MORNING SUNSHINE 6/1

STAR DOG is the strongest bet in this race especially at such a decent 10/1. His 51 average has this gelding with among the top Equibase Speed Figures for this event. Has run admirably when racing a dirt sprint race. BIJOULINN - Has to be given a chance here on the basis of the figs in the speed section alone. With a decent 69 Equibase Speed Figure last time out, will surely be a factor in this affair. MORNING SUNSHINE - Has a solid shot in this competition if you like back class. Has longshot possibilities and could score at a juicy mutuel.

# 2 LOOP TWENTY 2/1

# 5 SOUTH WIMBLEDON 10/1

# 6 BETHYL'S ROYALROSE 5/1

My choice in this competition is LOOP TWENTY. Has strong front speed and will probably fare soundly versus this field. May wake up with Lasix change (with second time Lasix) today. Recently Asmussen has provided risk takers with a quite good winning percentage with horses racing in dirt sprint races. SOUTH WIMBLEDON - Facing a much softer field than last time out. The odds should be right on this entrant. BETHYL'S ROYALROSE - Ought to go to the front end and might never look back. With a very good 73 Equibase speed fig last time out, will surely be a factor in this race.



Race 9 5:19pm - Claiming - 7.5 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $12,000 Class Rating: 89

# 4 CHANNEL ELEVEN 3/1

# 13 RED HEN WALKING 15/1

# 6 TRIPLEMENTAL 4/1

CHANNEL ELEVEN gets the edge as the wager in here. Shows strong speed figures on average overall when measured up against the rest of this group. She has a good opportunity in this race as handler, Calhoun, has strong win clip with horses going this distance. Ought to be given consideration based on the solid Equibase Speed Figure recorded in the last contest. RED HEN WALKING - Has solid early speed and will probably fare strongly versus this group. TRIPLEMENTAL - Strong average Equibase Speed Figs in turf sprint races make this racer a definite contender. Is a definite contender - given the 83 speed rating from her most recent race.
