Racing was cancelled for the third consecutive day. Unlike the nasty cold and windchill conditions that shutdown operations Monday and Tuesday, today’s quick thaw made it impossiblSLOPPYe to provide a safe racing surface.

Race 2 – Old friend HORNITO returns, but I think that his time has come and gone for now. BROKER BRETT could surprise stretching out if we have a frozen track. COUNT JULIAN has been crisp at this distance. IT’S HUGE was in over his head on 09Feb. It’s looking like a 1,5,6 exacta box to kick-off the afternoon.

Race 3 – Jeff Skerrett might be able to kick SAINTLY DEED free of these. Win (#4)

Race 5 – They should all stagger home at this Derby distance, throwing the race wide open. Solid connections and top class put QUIET AND FOXY in the mix. SOLAR MAXIMUS is usually a hard knocker with a win here at 1 1/8 miles. FRUED’S VALE is always grinding at the end. BRITE SABBETH seems to relish longer distances. Check out the richest three horse exacta box, probably 2,4,5 but that requires tossing (#7) QUIET AND FOXY – how big are my testicles today? Want to flirt with a the pick4 (2,4,5,7/2,7/2,7/8=$8)

Race 6 – Only MARCHING ORDERS and SKIP FOR GIN have been competitive recently. Box ’em (2/7)

Race 7 – FLAT OUT NICE looks prepped for her return to racing and is well spotted. Possible win (#2) ticket. SILVER ANTIQUE (Gorham) is difficult to ignore. I’m up in the air here.

Race 8 – WRITERS BLOCK takes a major class tumble after throwing in a clunker 13Feb. Radosevich puts blinkers on Loooch ship in, BIGMONEYSUNNY, in an attempt to wire these. LORD DONERAILE’s raw times are fast enough to consider him a longshot possibility. EX MARQ, in from the Fairgrounds presents enough questions marks to pass today. 2,4,8 exacta box, if I’m feeling lucky.
