Picks made today for fast track and no turf.
2: Beanie: The wide trip in last cost this one any chance and jockey Lanerie rides back.
1: Hot Patootie: Tough trip in last but rider sticks and now gets inside post to boost chances.
6: Courageous Timmy: Winner here already is in great form to get back to back wins.
7: Crafty Heat: Last was inexplicably awful effort so another shot here at a nice price.
1: Glitter Time: Sharp breaker at the gate should get the lone lead needed to get the win.
5: Commercial Flash: Solid effort off long break: trainer a bit cold but jockey Graham on fire.
2: Total Discretion: Good effort at shorter distance now goes longer which should suit.
5: More Romance: Ran second at higher level now drops down to find a trip to winners circle.
4: Soul Coaxing: Should be able to rate off leaders and make winning move in the stretch.
3: Mischief’s Machine: Ran head and head with another in last race; hung on well to the wire.
9: Calling: First-time starter out of the Stall barn merits a long look at a good price.
5: Muchmorethanready: Ran over the summer; laid off; working well for return here.
6: Underhill’s Tab: Ran well here last year: laid off since spring: should come back strong.
3: Twirling Roses: Good effort over this track; could get good setup here for closing kick.
4: Halfglamorous: Third start already at track; gets inside post; should offer value here.
8: Point of Victory: Trainer has done well at this meet and this one fits nicely with these.
Around the Track
Turf racing was back for the first time this meet and the picks were spot on last week. It will be interesting to see how the turf plays moving forward, but with the rails out the speed horses did not fare too well. We had a banner day on Monday’s card and the second choices or the “unders” were hitting all week. Here are the results for Chok’s Choices for the meet:
1st Choice 173-38-27-27 = 22% - Win/53% In-the-Money- .81 Return on Investment for $1
2nd Choice 169-43-34-28= 25%- Win//62% In-the-Money: .92 Return on Investment for $1
Our Best Bet will be in Race No. 3 — No. 1 Glitter Time, which looks to get to the front quickly and go all the way to the wire today.
Good luck and may they all come home safely.
