# 1 ALL DAY TRIP 5/2

# 4 STOLEN CANDY 3/1

# 6 TRUE POWER 5/1

ALL DAY TRIP is the strongest bet in this race. Has to be carefully examined versus this group of animals displaying quite good figures as of late and an average Equibase Speed Figure of 79 under similar conditions. Will most likely compete soundly in the early pace clash which bodes well with this field. Looks to have a solid class edge based on the latest company kept. STOLEN CANDY - Shows strong speed figures on average overall when measured up against the rest of this field. With a reliable jockey who has won at a quite good 16 percent rate over the last month. This has to be one of the top selections. TRUE POWER - Looks formidable to be up near the front end at the first call. Has to be carefully examined based on the respectable speed figure earned in the last race.

# 8 UNCLE MO MONEY 3/1

# 4 OUT OF THE TRAPPE 5/1

# 1 MR. NINE FIVE FOUR 6/1

I've got to go with UNCLE MO MONEY. Reliable average Equibase Speed Figures in dirt route races make this animal a solid contender. Must be given a shot - I like the figures from the last competition. Has respectable Equibase Class Figures relative to this group - worth a look. OUT OF THE TRAPPE - Looks very good for the conditions of this competition today, showing solid figures in dirt route races lately. He has been running very well and the Speed Figures are among the strongest in this group. MR. NINE FIVE FOUR - Should come out sharp - I have liked the way this gelding has moved swiftly to the lead recently. Garnered a formidable Equibase Speed Fig in the last race. Can run another good one in this race.

# 8 PATH OF DAVID 5/2

# 9 HARD TO BE GOOD 3/1

# 1 COLLATERAL KITTEN 4/1

My choice for this event is PATH OF DAVID. Has been racing solidly and has among the best speed in the race for today's distance. This gelding with Mena in the saddle makes him a solid contender. Must be considered based on the very strong Equibase Speed Figure recorded in the last race. HARD TO BE GOOD - Will likely be one of the leaders of the group going into the halfway point of the contest. With better than average trips to the winner's circle, Mena will almost certainly have this gelding in excellent position to win the contest. COLLATERAL KITTEN - Win percentage with this jockey and handler combo - 20 percent - formidable. Is a solid contender based on figs posted lately under today's conditions.

# 3 SEVEN SQUARED 3/1

# 2 HULA PIE 10/1

# 8 GLORY KINGDOM 7/2

SEVEN SQUARED is my choice. Could best this group of horses based on the Equibase Speed Figure - 82 - of his last race. Recent numbers for the jockey - 28 win percent - make this gelding stand out in this group of animals. Is worth looking at and may be a bet - strong Equibase Speed Figs (67 average) at today's distance and surface recently. HULA PIE - This gelding looks very good for this race since Foster has a solid win percent with horses going this distance. GLORY KINGDOM - Looks solid for the conditions of this competition today, showing solid numbers in dirt route races recently. He has been running strongly and the Speed Figures are among the top in this group of horses.

# 1 HARBOR PILOT 6/1

# 4 PADDY O'LIONEL 5/1

# 3 KNOCKIT OFF 3/1

My selection in this contest is HARBOR PILOT. Should keep the impressive string of finish positions intact today. This gelding with Valdivia in the irons makes him a key contender. Valdivia has strong numbers that point to this gelding to be a solid contender. PADDY O'LIONEL - Had one of the best speed figures of this group of horses in his last contest. KNOCKIT OFF - A solid 93 avg class fig may give this gelding a distinct class edge versus this field. Broberg has this gelding racing well and is a competitive choice based on the competitive speed figs garnered in route races recently.

# 9 KRAFTY BOY 7/2

# 5 MADDY'S PRO 6/1

# 3 HIDEAWAY HERO 3/1

KRAFTY BOY is tough to overlook as the bet in here. Stall has one of the most respectable winning percentages in this group of horses with entries running at this distance and surface. This entrant has been constatntly running well as of late. Could best this group of horses based on the speed rating - 87 - of his last race.

# 1 STERLING MISS 6/1

# 2 MO MO 10/1

# 5 ALFRESCO 9/2

STERLING MISS seems to be the bet in here. Solid edge in the sire's baby race win rate. May wake up with Lasix change (on Lasix) today. Players may be making a precarious move ignoring this handler working with a maiden first time starter. MO MO - She looks like a very strong contender based on sire's progeny results as two-year olds. ALFRESCO - Fits in well here based on Stidham's strong results with 2 year olds as of late. Stidham has a strong 18 percent win rate with entries running at this distance and surface.

# 9 JUS KEVIN 8/1

# 11 HALLIE BELLE 3/1

# 12 C ISLANDSURPRISE 7/2

JUS KEVIN looks to be the wager in here especially at a such a nice price. Had one of the best speed figures of this group in her last contest. Could provide positive profits based on very strong recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 83. This filly obviously likes the distance, going 2 out of 4 in her races recently. HALLIE BELLE - Looks formidable for the conditions of this race today, showing solid figures in turf route races lately. Is a contender - given the 92 Equibase speed fig from her most recent race. C ISLANDSURPRISE - The average Equibase class rating of 82 makes this one tough to beat. Mena has recent return on investment numbers which make this horse a good wager.



Race 9 5:05pm - Maiden Claiming - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $14,000 Class Rating: 61

FOR ACCREDITED LA BRED MAIDENS, FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 122 LBS.; OLDER, 124 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $10,000.

# 14 DANCE TILL TWO 2/1

# 4 PINKY PROMISE 5/1

# 9 LIGHT HER UP 5/2

I've got to go with DANCE TILL TWO. She should have a good showing versus this softer group. Faucheux has this filly racing well and is a very good choice based on the respectable Equibase Speed Figures earned in sprint races as of late. With better than average trips to the winner's circle, Valdivia ought to have this filly in excellent position to win the race. PINKY PROMISE - Has to be given a shot against this group displaying very good numbers recently and an average speed figure of 57 under similar conditions. Could best this group based on the speed rating - 52 - of her last effort. LIGHT HER UP - Has a strong shot in this race if you like back class. Can't overlook the connections here, a 28 winning percentage, one of the best at getting into the winner's circle.
