Another week, another glorious Saturday!
(Now, if I could just make enough money to run over to Fidel's afterwards and buy a margarita. That's all I ask... )
R1 - She's All Yours - This looks to be a "she who gets the lead shall win" race. She's All Yours dismantled a weaker group, but got picked back up by Hollendorfer. That sounds like the recipe for another win...at a short price...
R2 - Bajan - Another very short price here. This is your pick-5 single though.
R3 - Funny Belle - She drops way down in class here and runs into a pretty weak field, I think. The only question I have is whether Tribalicious will fold after getting a 15 length lead here. Also keeping an eye on No Tricks for Jack. She could be a sneaky exotics play. Ha! I think I may have found my tri here.
R4 - Brannaman - How easy of a win was his last out? Maybe *this* is pick-5 single (I think I'm talking myself into a P5 ticket...)
R5 - Tamarack Smarty - I guess every multi-race exotic needs a race that's a crap shoot. This is it for both the P5 and P6! Pick a number, any number! Tamarack ran a good race last out. He and So Elite essentially ran the same race. I'm also watching Key Decision and First Blue Angel very closely.
R6 - Blue Tone - Won without even trying. Curly Top is a big threat though. Also, not sure what to do with Soi Phet. He looked awesome the last two out, but steps way up here. And, Holy Candy...is he back or not the same?
R7 - Imperial Fortune - Baffert and Garcia, should be a good team here.
R8 - Pure Loyalty - Maybe a "from left field" play here, but I think he fits in with these. Had a horrible trip last out so throw that one out and your left with....a bunch of 2nds and 3rds ...but look who he's pulled in behind...Govenor (or however he spells it) Charlie, Treasury Bill, Zee Bros...worth a shot!
While I'm at it on this race...why why why is Freakin Rocket in here? I know you'll say...he's by Rock Hard Ten...he should route! Meh...we'll see...I'd rather see him sprinting...
R9 - Unseen Visitor - another one who won so easily, it's hard to believe.
R10 - Milk Man Ray - I've been waiting for him to come back. Just had the worst trip possible last out. Probably a short price here though.
SAR R9 - Summer of Fun - Should get her first stakes win here
SAR R10 - Za Approval - why not???? Wise Dan is going to be 1/10, so prices will be inflated! Everyone has a bad day now and then...
Good luck all!
