“ramblings” are not always plays when the windows open –

Race 1 – #5 ABIDING LOVE looks the most likely winner having run out of conditions in Tampa gets to face n4l here. #3 PLAY THE DEVIL might be the one to catch the top selection late. She has won before making the sprint to route move. She’s dropping and is second off the bench – winner (#5 below) $3.80; #3 second for $9.80 exacta 

 Race 2 – It’s interesting that two sons of Stephen Got Even #2 CHERAY and #7 DON’T GET EVEN face off here after tries at major league tracks. I’d rather watch than pretend to separate the siblings and other assorted shippers – they were FILLIES! #2 CHERSY (below) won $3.00; her sister was off the board 

 Race 3 – Today’s cutback should sharpen #3 AIR BACA who needs to be “the speed of the speed” – last to “the other” Radosevich horse . . .

Race 4 – Jevon Crumley’s Penn National imports have not scored yet here but #7 HIGH NATIVE FLY is best at today’s distance. #5 STORM SNOW (52-7-12-12) looks like a a lock to make it into the exacta late – sixth and STORM SNOW missed the exacta fourth

Race 5 – That speed/fade trip against MSW company should have #8 CLASSIC ENTRY tight today – winner (below) $2.40

 Race 6 – If fit coming off the bench after six months #2 MAC WITT could steal this from the runner whose recent form figures #10 GOLDEN WARRIOR also does his best running on the lead but is stuck out in the eleven hole today – second; 10-2 exacta (below) $36.00 

 Race 7 – A series of works at Keeneland following the 05March victory might have #1 LUCKY STRANGE the fittest of this very testy bunch – scratch

Race 8 – #9 BLACK MAGIC appears to pull into town with enough back class to prevail – fourth
