Friday at MVR

Ramblings are not always wagers.

Race 1 – Undefeated in Ohio #4 LAWYER RON switches to a barn that knows how to win early with new stock –  third

Race 2 – The return to dirt 14Oct clicked for #5 TOBACCO FOX who appears to be taking a slight class drop – third

Race 3 – Never worse than second at this distance #6 TILT THE BALANCE takes a favorable dip in class – second

Race 4 – Veteran runner #4 CARDIAC REHAB  who seems to like his races well spaced returns at his favorite distance – winner $15.00

 Race 5 – After trading blows a couple times in Cleveland #2 JEZABEL’S CHARM and #10 PEBBLES PICK appear the most likely of these Ohio-bred maiden ladies. #10 PEBBLES PICK might be the one to catch at today’s distance if she avoids another wide trip  – winner $5.60  

 Race 6 – Ignoring the impressive five furlong blowout 20Sep by #3 HOLD ME SUE finding that third win has been difficult for most of this bunch. Relatively lightly raced and cutting back #11 DORTHYS BLITZ gets tepid support despite a lousy post position – off the board

Race 7 – #3 BOBBY MAC should be loose early; lasting is an issue however this is another cut back runner – fourth

*4:10pm BC Dirt Mile (KEE Race 7) – His excellent post draw for the querky configuration of this event seems to enhance the chances of heavily favored #3 LIAM’S MAP who may be the lock of the weekend in Lexington – winner $3.00

Race 8 – Sharp connections introduce #11 CORONADO CROWN to lasix – first but disqualified = second

*5:35pm BC Distaff (KEE Race 9) – Team Pletcher may have two better than average chances to score here. #4 STOPCHARGINGMARIA loves the distance and has demonstrated the ability to ration out her speed. A winner on this strip 2Oct #12 GOT LUCKY should get plenty of pace to close into but will have to find a way to save ground along the way from her wide post position. Leaning heavier on “MARIA,” I might buy win tickets on each and box that 4/12 exacta – winner $16.20 (STOPCHARGINGMARIA) and off the board (GOT LUCKY)
