# 5 DASHES LIKA RABBIT 9/2

# 2 SAIL ON NOW 15/1

# 1 V OS EBONY AND IVORY 5/2

DASHES LIKA RABBIT is my choice. The Lasix change (on Lasix) may spark a turnaround for this gelding. SAIL ON NOW - Has been running solidly lately and should be up on the lead early on. V OS EBONY AND IVORY - Has strong early lick and should fare admirably against this group.



Race 2 1:25pm - Maiden - 250 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $1,500 Class Rating: 61

QUARTER HORSE 250Y, FOR MAIDENS, THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. WEIGHT, 124 LBS.

# 1 LUV THAT COOL CORONA 2/1

# 2 JA GOLS OBSESSION 3/1

# 3 IMA GONNA CRASH 7/1

I think LUV THAT COOL CORONA is a quite good choice. This field of horses is much easier than the last one he was up against. This gelding is a contender based on his earnings per start in short events. Must be given consideration given the class of races run lately. JA GOLS OBSESSION - Has been running quite well lately and will probably be up near the lead early on.



Race 3 1:50pm - Maiden Special Weight - 5.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $1,500 Class Rating: 41

FOR MAIDENS, THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. WEIGHTS, 124 LBS.

# 3 CAYOTE ROJO 6/1

# 4 BARTHELO 4/5

# 2 HERE COME THE BOSS 9/5

I lean toward CAYOTE ROJO here. This gelding could improve now going off Lasix. Has a solid shot for this event if you like back class. Overall, has one of the top earnings per start in dirt sprint races in this lot. BARTHELO - Change in Lasix (now going off Lasix) may be the difference to a turnaround. The average Equibase class rating alone makes this horse a solid contender. HERE COME THE BOSS - Is hard not to consider given the company run in as of late. Meeting a much less demanding field of horses than last time out.



Race 4 2:15pm - Allowance - 5.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $2,000 Class Rating: 59

FOR FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NOT WON A RACE IN 2015. THREE YEAR OLDS, 124 LBS.

# 5 PRETTYASAPEARL 9/1

# 2 BOOZEINABLENDER 3/5

# 1 JEWELS GALORE 9/2

I back PRETTYASAPEARL here especially at a long price. This pony enters today's contest now going off Lasix. A solid 60 avg Equibase class figure may give this mare a distinct class edge against this group of horses in this race. Will make a strong outing versus this group. BOOZEINABLENDER - Has quite good Equibase Speed Figs and has to be considered for a bet in here. Should be given a chance based on the solid Equibase speed fig posted in the last competition.



Race 5 2:40pm - Allowance - 5.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $2,000 Class Rating: 53

FOR FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NOT WON A RACE IN 2015. THREE YEAR OLDS, 124 LBS.

# 4 DYNAMICFLOWER 2/1

# 2 BLUE RA RA 9/2

# 3 TOMS PRINCESS 3/5

DYNAMICFLOWER is tough to overlook as the bet in here. Overall the Equibase speed figs of this horse look very good in this outing. Has very strong front speed and will almost certainly fare well versus this group. Is tough not to examine given the company run in lately. BLUE RA RA - Has to be carefully examined against this group of horses displaying solid numbers as of late and an average Equibase Speed Fig of 66 under similar conditions. Will most likely come out strong - I have liked the way this mare has moved speedily to the front end recently. TOMS PRINCESS - Expect a reliable effort with the class drop. The almost immediate return to racing points to a sound effort this time out.



Race 6 3:05pm - Stakes - 250 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $4,650 Class Rating: 75 Ft. Pierre / AQHA Challenge Supplemental Stakes S.

QUARTER HORSE 250Y, FT. PIERRE / AQHA CHALLENGE SUPPLEMENTAL STAKES S. - FOR THREE YEAR OLDS AND OLDER, BOTH HORSES AND OWNERS MUST BE AQHA CHALLENGE ENROLLED. WEIGHTS ASSIGNED. HIGH WEIGHTS PREFERRED FOR A FIELD OF EIGHT.

# 3 THIRTY SIX BELLES 7/2

# 1 HASTABEALEADER 8/5

# 5 FAST EDDYS EYEYINYOU 9/5

THIRTY SIX BELLES looks to be a formidable contender. The extreme drop in competition can only aid this one today. Must be given consideration given the class of races run recently. Her 82 average has this filly with among the most respectable speed figures in this competition. HASTABEALEADER - This gelding is a key contender based on his earnings per start in short events. The Equibase Speed Figure of 71 from his most recent race looks strong in here. FAST EDDYS EYEYINYOU - Johnson has him trained strongly to break swiftly out of the gate. Has performed strongly as of late in short races, posting a nifty 68 avg speed figure.



Race 7 3:30pm - Claiming - 5.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $1,200 Class Rating: 62

FOR THREE YEAR OLDS AND UPWARD NON-WINNERS OF 2 RACES IN 2014-2015 COMBINED. WEIGHT, 124 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $2,000.

# 5 DIRECT ZIP 1/1

# 1 I'M THE GOLD 10/1

# 4 HEADOFCLASS 4/1

DIRECT ZIP looks to be a solid contender. Will probably compete solidly in the early pace contest which bodes well with this group of horses. Prominent in earnings per start at the distance/surface in this lot. With a nice class rating average of 69, has one of the strongest class advantages in this field. I'M THE GOLD - Is a solid choice - given the 51 speed figure from his most recent race. The average class fig alone makes this horse a contender. HEADOFCLASS - Handler boasts sharp win figures at this distance and surface. Could provide positive returns based on very good recent speed figures with an average of 53.
