# 3 HEART AND PRAY 8/1

# 2 SHOTOGOODJUDGEMENT 9/2

# 5 RADAR VISION 5/1

HEART AND PRAY is the best bet in this race and is a formidable value bet given the line. Extra focus caused by blinkers change (going on today) likely to result in a big race. Earned a sound speed rating in the most recent race. Can run another good one in this race. Is tough not to examine given the company run in recently. SHOTOGOODJUDGEMENT - Competitive chance today with second time Lasix. Will probably compete strongly in the early pace contest which bodes well with this group. RADAR VISION - Has to be given consideration against this field displaying solid numbers lately and an average speed fig of 58 under similar conditions. Shows strong speed figures on average overall when compared with the rest of this group.

# 7 BROOKLYN SPEIGHTS 1/1

# 2 SUCCESS PHIL 8/1

# 1 BRO STROLL 5/1

BROOKLYN SPEIGHTS is the top bet in this race. Shows evidence of the look of a money-making play, averaging a solid 75 Equibase Speed Figure which is one of the top in this field. Ran a strong last race. No strangers to the winner's circle, Ward and Garcia will probably have this gelding breaking away from the field. SUCCESS PHIL - Serrano ought to be able to get this gelding to break out quickly in this event. Ran a very solid last race. BRO STROLL - The price could be right on this one. Last time out, this gelding ran against a stronger crew.



Race 3 7:15pm - Claiming - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $9,000 Class Rating: 90

FOR THREE YEAR OLDS AND UPWARD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 123 LBS.; OLDER, 124 LBS. NON-WINNERS OF A RACE SINCE NOVEMBER 6 ALLOWED 3 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $8,000, FOR EACH $500 TO $7,000 1 LB.

# 7 BUD'S BAYONET 4/1

# 1 STARSHIP MERCURY 15/1

# 2 MUNTIJ 4/1

I give the nod to BUD'S BAYONET here. Has formidable early lick and will most likely fare well against this group. He has posted very good figures under today's conditions and should fare well versus this group. STARSHIP MERCURY - Will probably compete very well in the pace contest which bodes well with this field. Must be given consideration - I like the figures from the last contest.



Race 4 7:45pm - Maiden Claiming - 8.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $6,100 Class Rating: 76

# 1 COPPER MUNN 10/1

# 5 SCHILLER SOUND 8/1

# 6 SLOWHAND 8/5

COPPER MUNN looks to be a very strong contender especially at a long price. Have to love when any racer makes a quick reversal of fortune. With a reliable 54 average Equibase Speed Figure at the distance, seems well suited for today's contest. He has been racing admirably lately while recording strong speed figs. SCHILLER SOUND - Jockey's recent ROI figures make this gelding a good bet. Brooks is trying to win with this horse by bringing him back so soon. SLOWHAND - Could provide positive dividends based on formidable recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 70. Put up a solid speed fig in the latest race. Can run another good one in this affair.



Race 5 8:15pm - Claiming - 6.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $7,100 Class Rating: 75

FOR THREE YEAR OLDS AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON TWO RACES. THREE YEAR OLDS, 123 LBS.; OLDER, 124 LBS. NON-WINNERS OF A RACE SINCE NOVEMBER 6 ALLOWED 3 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $7,500

# 8 ALL HANSENS ONDECK 7/5

# 11 MOTOWN RHYTHM 4/1

# 10 RONTOS SOCIETY 12/1

I favor ALL HANSENS ONDECK here. Earned a reliable Equibase Speed Fig in the last race. Can run another good one in this race. MOTOWN RHYTHM - Should best this group of animals here, showing strong numbers of late. Ran a very solid last race. RONTOS SOCIETY - Will almost certainly come out very strong - I have liked the way this gelding has moved swiftly to the lead recently. Must be given consideration in here if only for the respectable Equibase speed fig earned in the last race.



Race 6 8:45pm - Optional Claiming - 5.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $20,400 Class Rating: 99

FOR FILLIES TWO YEARS OLD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON A RACE OTHER THAN MAIDEN, CLAIMING, STARTER, OR STATE BRED OR WHICH HAVE NEVER WON TWO RACES OR CLAIMING PRICE $50,000. WEIGHT, 122 LBS.

# 3 FAIRYLAND 6/5

# 6 BIG AXE 7/2

# 1 AMBERSPATRIOT 7/2

My choice for this event is FAIRYLAND. Might see a different racer here with the blinkers change. Will most likely be one of the early speedsters of the group going into the halfway point of the race. The speed figure of 102 from her latest race looks very strong in here. BIG AXE - With a quite good 79 speed figure last time out, will clearly be a factor in this contest. Sarvis and Gorder are a potent pair for dividends. AMBERSPATRIOT - Has performed admirably as of late in sprint races, posting a nifty 73 avg Equibase Speed Fig. Should be considered here on the basis of the figures in the speed realm alone.



Race 7 9:15pm - Optional Claiming - 8.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $20,400 Class Rating: 89

FOR FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON $7,500 OTHER THAN MAIDEN, CLAIMING OR STARTER OR WHICH HAVE NEVER WON TWO RACES OR CLAIMING PRICE $25,000.

# 8 ROSE TO GLORY 5/1

# 2 LAKE TURKANA 10/1

# 6 MAJESTIC MEGAN 6/1

ROSE TO GLORY has a quite good shot to take this race. Is a strong contender based on numbers posted lately under today's conditions. Recent numbers for the jockey - 18 win percent - make this mare stand out in this group of horses. Demonstrates the look of a lucrative play, averaging a solid 80 speed figure which is one of the best in this field. LAKE TURKANA - Ought to come out sharp - I have liked the way this filly has moved sharply to the front end recently. The average Equibase class figure of 72 makes this one hard to beat. MAJESTIC MEGAN - Has performed solidly as of late in route races, posting a nifty 78 avg speed rating. This horse has some longshot handicapping angles going for her.



Race 8 9:45pm - Maiden Special Weight - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $18,500 Class Rating: 87

FOR MAIDENS, FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 123 LBS.; OLDER, 124 LBS.

# 9 STREET LOVE 9/2

# 10 FAITH IN CATHY 20/1

# 7 SOCATA 3/1

STREET LOVE could be the wager in here. Has competitive early speed and should fare quite well versus this field. Must be given consideration here if only for the solid speed rating posted in the last race. FAITH IN CATHY - This pony enters today's outing on Lasix. SOCATA - Earned a solid Equibase Speed Figure last time out. Lopresti has this filly travelling well and is a solid choice based on the very good speed figs earned in sprint races lately.
