BEST BET: RACE 10, WIN­NING DRIVE

FIRST RACE

KIKINBOY has switched hands since last try and well spot­ted to get back on win­ning track. Fin­ished solid sec­ond when last tack­ling con­di­tions claimers here in June. THE DOW con­tin­ues to hold form well, just missed in first ven­ture against N3L’s. Does re­turn a bit quick but have to throw in mix if able to re­peat last cou­ple. TIGERBEACH ex­its ca­reer best from a Beyer stand­point when stretch­ing back out around two turns and get­ting some class re­lief for re­turn to lo­cal sod. Just the Facts ex­its key race when last cited in Au­gust and a good fit here if not for hav­ing to over­come the ex­treme out­side post which can be ma­jor draw­back at this dis­tance.

SEC­OND RACE

LAR­CENY shows up for a claim­ing tag for the first time after chas­ing home a cou­ple of good ones in Boldor and next out N!X al­low. win­ner(87 Beyer) Su­per Steed in Ky. fi­nale. Beat his other 9 ri­vals that day and likely not fac­ing any­thing close to that kind here. DI­RECT AP­PROACH out of a mare whose 2 sibs to make races both 6 fig­ure earn­ers. Shows steady work tab prep­ping for bow and Saez sign­ing on may be a good sign. BRONZED split next out win­ners Un­cle Benny(81 Beyer) and Di­rect Or­der(79 Beyer) in N J fi­nale and an­other who gets tagged for lo­cal bow. Big ques­tion whether he’ll need one off bench/farm.

THIRD RACE

SARA’S DAY stays put off the claim after post­ing a win and sec­ond in two open $6,250 tries to close out GPW meet. Ac­tu­ally seems ev­ery bet­ter at a one turn mile. Gets the edge over THERE GOES BELLA who was also necked at this level two back lo­cally and the likely pace set­ter if away run­ning from in­side. SCHMISS drops to cheapest level yet mak­ing 2nd start off the claim. Should rel­ish the class re­lief.

FOURTH RACE

BIG BOY BRUNO beat cheaper go­ing 6 furs. across town but may be even bet­ter back at his home track and go­ing a one turn mile. Gets call over likely fa­vorite CHOVANES who re­turns to open selling ranks and strictly one to catch if he leaves run­ning in­side. MO­TOWN MAN a con­sis­tent sort and then some from a Beyer stand­point and ca­pa­ble of grab­bing a mi­nonr share with Saez tak­ing the reins.

FIFTH RACE

C MA­JOR de­serves an­other chance after get­ting car­ried very wide on club­house turn then forced to duel be­tween horses when tak­ing plenty of ac­tion launch­ing ca­reer last month at GPW. By Shang­hai Bobby out of a mare whose first three foals to races were all win­ners. KING ORB suc­cumbed grudg­ingly as the choice in Md. fi­nale over yield­ing ground but not she ran huge over this strip last spring. VET­TEL sheds blink­ers, looks like con­trol­ling speed even with­out the shades. Might hold on for a piece.

SIXTH RACE

MAC JAG­GER not only caught mud but a very tal­ented field with the top four fin­ish­ers from the race com­ing back to run Bey­ers be­tween 83-93 in their next starts. Was not badly beaten by likes of Tim­ber Ghost in pre­vi­ous out­ing and not fac­ing that kind in lo­cal bow. ARTICULATOR puts blink­ers on off the claim after fin­ish­ing good sec­ond be­hind red hot win­ner last time in Ky. AEQUOR ex­its much needed out­ing be­hind Delta Blues­man and ex­pected to im­prove with the race un­der his belt.

SEV­ENTH RACE

PRETTY SHEA D gets some class re­lief try­ing

con­di­tioned claimers while ex­it­ing key race that pro­duced pair of next out win­ners. Look out if she can clear off early from IR­ISH FIX. The lat­ter also has plenty of early foot and not that huge ef­fort over this course 11 months ear­lier. LIT­TLE NI­COLE drops, turns back to a sprint, should be com­ing strong at the end.

EIGHTH RACE

Lots of ques­tions to an­swer in the main event in­clud­ing what hap­pened to BREAK­ING LUCKY in his last start. Put a line through that ef­fort and classy sort could prove right one drop­ping to this level and off that strong per­for­mance be­hind Petrov and Fa­vor­able Out­come in sea­sonal bow at the Spa. BIB­LI­CAL an up and com­ing sort who was side­lined after big N1X tally here last win­ter. Ap­pears to be train­ing for­wardly for his re­turn. IM­PER­A­TIVE like Break­ing Lucky has plenty of back class to draw on while ex­it­ing a trou­bled third vs. sim­i­lar four weeks ear­lier in Md.

NINTH RACE

GOODTHINGSTAKETIME drops out of steady diet of stakes co. into an N1X for first time in his ca­reer and Irad takes the call. Should be along with clean sail­ing. MUCHACHA UNO one of only two mul­ti­ple win­ners in the field hav­ing de­feated older, starter al­lowance op­po­si­tion ear­lier this fall in N Y Tough cus­tomer here if able to re­peat that try. STEAMY

WIN­DOWS won a slow but su­per key race(4 next out win­ners) last out at Presque Isle and bred to love the go­ing. Could be bit of a sleeper here.

TENTH RACE

WIN­NING DRIVE, the day’s best, caught a good one when upset as 3-5 choice in ca­reer bow, the win­ner of that race com­ing back to fin­ish sec­ond in sub­se­quent stakes try. Need only move for­ward to grad­u­ate. BEAU TRACE one of sev­eral in here emerg­ing from the 11th at GPW on 11/10, show­ing prom­ise after swing­ing ex­tremely wide with a midrace bid be­fore flat­ten­ing out at the end. Taken to move for­ward from the ef­fort. FOLLOWHISFOOTSTEPS chased wire to wire win­ner in the same race, faded late while fail­ing to switch off left lead down stretch. An­other who should move for­ward from the ex­pe­ri­ence.
