Louisiana Downs Race 4 for Wednesday, August 16, 2017
Handicapped by The Turf Club Analysts
Louisiana Downs - Race #4 - Post: 4:32pm - Optional Claiming - 6.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $19,500 Class Rating: 97
#7 VALIANT CITY (ML=3/1)
VALIANT CITY - This one has shown the capability to win on different racing tracks. Making the move from Evangeline Downs for today's event, I have to believe he's ready to run. I like this horse. Should be familiar with this level since he ran against the same type last race out at Evangeline Downs. This animal didn't run well on a sloppy track in his last start at Evangeline Downs. You should toss out that showing. This horse is tops in (EPS) earnings per start. He looks strong in today's affair.
Vulnerable Contenders: #5 KATILLAC CHARM (ML=2/1), #4 SOLAR CHARGE (ML=4/1), #3 SO SORRY RUSTON (ML=9/2),
KATILLAC CHARM - If today's race shapes up right, all the speedballs will force a furious pace battle early. Too bad this horse is one of those front runners. Don't believe this mount will make an impact today. That last speed rating was run-of-the-mill when compared with today's class figure. SOLAR CHARGE - Not probable for this horse to do much running with no recent success in a short distance affair. Hasn't been doing anything at all recently. SO SORRY RUSTON - Garnered a disappointing speed rating last time out in a $17,500 Optional Claiming race on June 28th. Doubtful to see an improved performance off of that number.
#7 VALIANT CITY is the play if we get odds of 1/1 or better
