Wednesday at Thistledown

Ramblings are not always wagers.

Race 1 – It looks like #6 SOUTHERN SYMPHONY has been tightened for this attempt – winner $6.00

Race 2 – The cutback brightens the chances that #7 MAC WITT might hang on to the wire but a duel on the front end with #4 NOTTA BOAT would leave #6 TOUGH AS STEEL the opportunity to win in the lane – NOTTA BOAT won $8.00; the other two missed the board TOUGH AS STEEL 5th, MAC WITT last of eight

Race 3 – #5 ARISTOCRAT AGAIN looms as stalking challenge if the chalky shipper misfires – the chalk misfired but ARISTOCRAT was no factor

Race 4 – #4 FEAR THE BEARD should be loose on the lead and tough to catch – faded to fourth after being hustled early

Race 5 – This very interesting full field of maidens includes #4 FABLED STAR second in her last two tries to next time winners and #11 KITTEN DANCE a first timer by Kitten’s Joy sent by Tom Amoss – FABLED STAR was caught at the wire; KITTEN DANCE seemed to go evenly in mid-pack

Race 6 – #6 TAIPAN’S ADVANTAGE seems to have gravitated into an excellent spot for the elusive second win. That victory at Tampa signals that he’ll probably like the Thistledown dirt – tough beat second on a tough day to hang on in the stretch

Race 7 – #7 SAILAWAY KITTEN second off the bench could surprise NYRA transfer #6 ENGINE – SAILAWAY KITTEN fourth; ENGINE fifth – try ’em both again

Race 8 – #7 SASHA’S KING takes a drop for connections that spot their stock well – third
