# 4 SIDISINFORTHREE 5/1

# 6 HOPEFUL TIMES 2/1

# 3 MISSES KNIGHT 6/1

My selection in this contest is SIDISINFORTHREE. Ought to be given a shot here on the basis of the figs in the speed department alone. Solid selection to take this race going in a dirt sprint. Ought to be given consideration based on the quite good Equibase Speed Figure earned in the last contest. HOPEFUL TIMES - Demonstrates the look of a lucrative play, averaging a solid 77 speed figure which is one of the most favorable in this field. Kreiser has a strong win percentage with horses running in dirt sprint races. MISSES KNIGHT - Well above average win clip at this distance/surface. Has been running soundly lately and will almost certainly be close to the front end early on.

# 7 ZIPLINE 6/1

# 1 CARONIA 5/1

# 4 ENTICING EVENING 5/2

# 7 ALEXIA 7/2

CARONIA looks to be a quite good contender. Is tough not to examine based on Equibase Speed Figures which have been decent - 52 avg - of late. This filly is a key contender based on her earnings per start in dirt route races. A solid 73 avg class rating may give this filly a distinct class edge versus this group of animals. ALEXIA - Will make a strong outing versus this field of horses. Has very good early lick and will probably fare soundly versus this group.

GUERNSEY looks respectable to best this field. Has been travelling solidly and has among the best speed in the race for today's distance.

# 1 RICK'S BOY 9/2

# 5 TACTICAL PLAN 2/1

# 3 CAUSE HE'S WESTERN 3/1

I think RICK'S BOY is a competitive choice. Has to be considered here on the basis of the figs in the speed section alone. Looks formidable to be on or close to the front end at the first call. Could best this group of horses based on the speed rating - 88 - of his last outing. TACTICAL PLAN - This colt looks good in this race since Pino has a strong win percent with horses going this distance. Pino has him trained quite well to break sharply out of the gate. CAUSE HE'S WESTERN - Has a strong record at the distance and surface, which makes me give my vote to this horse. Overall the speed figures of this animal look very good in this affair.

# 5 NOVA NATION 8/1

# 9 SOPHIE STATION 12/1

# 4 BOLD N TALENTED 3/1

My choice for this event is NOVA NATION and could score at a price in here. Is tough not to consider based on speed figures which have been competitive - 56 avg - of late. Houghton has a very solid winning percentage with horses racing in dirt sprint races. Ought to be given a chance - I like the numbers from the last competition. SOPHIE STATION - Has to be carefully examined based on the strong speed figure earned in the last contest. Has longshot possibilities and could win at big odds. BOLD N TALENTED - With Pinero on top her, this filly will probably be able to break out early for this event.

# 4 BOURBON AND BEER 2/1

# 5 WHERES WILLY 3/1

# 7 TRAVELING AFOOT 15/1

BOURBON AND BEER could be the bet in here. Strong average speed figures in dirt route races make this equine a contender. Wolfsont has been hot the last month, winning at a nifty 22 percent rate. Must be given a chance - I like the figs from the last contest. WHERES WILLY - Entrants trained by Demasi in dirt route races are frequently strong. With Whitney on top him, this gelding will probably be able to break out quickly in this event. TRAVELING AFOOT - Is a solid contender - given the 64 Equibase Speed Figure from his most recent race.



Race 8 9:10pm - Claiming - 8.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $10,500 Class Rating: 80

# 5 INDIAN RED 3/1

# 11 THEBARBEROFBRAZIL 5/2

# 8 WILD IMAGINATION 7/2

INDIAN RED supports the wager in here. Players should probably feel comfortable with this selection given Esquivel's recent dividends at the window. Could best this group of animals based on the Equibase Speed Figure - 76 - of his last race. He has competitive class ratings, averaging 96, and has to be considered in this event. THEBARBEROFBRAZIL - Has formidable speed figures and has to be considered for a bet for this race. Conditioner boasts strong win figures at this distance and surface. WILD IMAGINATION - Looks respectable for the conditions of this contest today, showing solid numbers in dirt route races as of late.
