Race 2 – DERIVATIVECONTRACT #6 – winner $5.40 appears the fastest after just missing at this level last time. CARTERS GAP #2 – second got loose 16Feb could repeat but more speed signs on today. TRAVELERS DREAM #3 – fifth has competitive timings and would benefit from a duel between the top two. Exacta $15.00

HOPE’S FROG SONG #4 – second does her best work against Ohio breds but can run with these on a good day. Exacta $16.00 Trifecta $7.20
Race 4 – CAPICHE #3 – fourth must beat open company today but doesn’t seem to mind stretching out and could sneak up on a couple “needs the lead” types while they focus on each other. CUTE BOY #1 – winner $5.00 was caught last time but if the rail is alive he could flip the tables on KING’S DEPUTY #5 – third.
Race 5 – SAFETY VALVE #1 – third cuts back today fit a ready third back from an eight month lay off. HIT KING #4 – winner $5.40 has the best local clocking at today’s distance. The new face INDYGO PRINCE #5 – fourth brings some back class to the party.
Race 6 – It would not be unlike this barn to watch JEWELRYHIESTER #3 – winner $6.60 skip to victory in his second local start. It would seem that it is about time for DESTIND TO PAY #2 – fourth but at 51-2-8-5 “in the money” is a safer bet. MYSTIFIED #5 – fifth is another looking for a wake up call off some workman like trips.
Race 7 – KEEP THE CASH #3 – second has found plenty of ways to just miss, this group might be slightly below what he has been facing. ACE RICH #1 – third might find an opportunity late.
LEADEROFTHESTORM #5 – scratched looks like the front runner with the most staying power.
