Saturday at Thistledown 

Race 1 – Bottom level maiden claiming event has drawn no obvious up and comers. Perhaps Michigan shipper #2 DORTHY BLITZ has matured since her efforts in the slop here last fall – winner $5.20

Race 2 – More $5k maiden claimers – #7 LUV ON THE ROX showed some life in her last trip at this level/distance; solid connections can keep her on the improve – third

Race 3 – The youngster in the field #1 OVERSTAND needs to find a trip from the rail but his ability to rate is a positive since he is surrounded by several that want the lead; it appears that he’ll also appreciate the return to dirt – second

Race 4 – Second race off the layoff #10 SUTTER’S FIND might be hard to catch but must leave the gate alertly from that wide post position – scratch

Race 5 – #3 PEAT BAY could get a relaxed lead – ninth

Race 6 – Assuming that #6 STORMIN LARRY scratches rather than run back in five days this is a very sticky wicket. The default wager is the classy entry sent out by strong connections #1 (pp5) CITY SLAMMER and #1A BOOT LEGGER both exit Ohio stakes company – winner CITY SLAMMER $6.40 (STORMING LARRY did run finished third)

Race 7 – #7 CONDESTABLE has taken quite nicely to Ohio racing. Today he tangles with some of the best claimers on the grounds – second

Race 8 – Three year old daughter of Blame #6 REDSTART prepped by proving she could get a longer distance in her first Ohio stakes – cutting back she takes on a more experienced bunch today but the price might be right if she the real deal – way off the board
