Race 1 – Trainer Ed Clouston appears to return #2 JOHN’S MARIAH to the races off six workouts at Mountaineer as a plausible betting alternative to his other horse in here the probable 3/5 favorite #3 ACROBATIC TACTIC  in a five horse field. I’ll keep my hands in my pockets but watch with great interest  – 4-3-1, scratched down to four $4.80

Race 3 – Second off the bench #2 RAFFLES DELIGHT could turn the tables on most likely winner #3 OFFLEE SINISTER if that one is forced to tangle with quick #5 RICHARD’S TUNE through the stretch – fifth to OFFLEE SINISTÈR $3.80

Race 6 – Trainer Joe Poole is only hitting at 8% first off the claim. However if his #7 RIPLEY goes off anywhere near his 6/1 morning line he be will  hard to resist against other n2L types. The son of Tapit was taken from Ken Ramsey for $5k at Turfway 28Feb. Although something went terribly wrong after he his $250k purchase at the KEENOV2011 sale his pedigree is going to win him some races. Maybe today – second

Race 7 – Another interesting trainer move: Juan Pablo Silver has done very well (5-2-2-0) shipping horses last raced at Mountaineer to Mahoning Valley. Here he brings longshot #1 SOPHIE SUE in to join another from his barn #4 TIZ BLISS who scored making that that move 1April. Since both are making a steep class climb I’m thinking that the new comer “rabbits” for the other to fry the 4/5 morning line chalk. A 1-2-4 exacta box might reap a moderate reward by shutting out the Ohio stakes runner #5 HEAT TRANSFER and including the Jeff Radosevich runner making #2 MAYBE LILY who has been away since 12Nov – scratch #1; 3-2-5, $16.00, $63.40 exacta
