Race 8 DIVIDEND has been facing rougher and running good numbers while doing it. Closer will need a little pace to make his run. On the other end of the pace scale, MALIBU’S MOSTWANTED will be up on the pace and might have the advantage on the top choice.
Race 9 Going to take a stand here with the favorite MOUNTAIN CRY who might just be the best of a bad group. Other choices are coming off almost 10 month layoffs and may need one.
Race 10 A good group here in this MSW. Im leaning towards VERBOUWEN for Chad Brown at 4-1. Two good races to that his career, if he improves on the minor vacation (Brown 29%) he should be tough. Favorite GIOIA STELLA cost 1.5 milliom and ran like a good one first out, will be tough back in this spot. HYMNOTIC is bred to be a good one by great turf sire War Front. Clement can have them ready to run first time out.
Race 11 WHIPPO looks tough, second race at this level, came running late in last, similar effort wins this one.
The play .50$ pick 4
Good luck, looks for the weekend preview later tonight. Great weekend of racing from coast to coast.
