Mahoning Valley at first glance
Race 1 – Dull group of Ohio-bred $5k claimers: The uncoupled pair of Robert Gorham droppers draw the most attention. #8 HOLIDAY WEEKEND scored twice here last year in allowance company. #6 PIXIE CHICK should like her return to dirt – steep drop + Houghton to get her out of the gate.
Race 2 – #5 HITCHISMYNAME gets a chance to nurse the front end of this paceless event. #1 NEVERADULLMOMENT has sprung to life since two-turning in Ohio. Jeff Radosevich brings in a mystery horse #8 AVANDAZO from Delaware while entering “the other horse” #10 THANKS BRO with his go to jock Jeff Skerrett up – makes for plenty of mystery.
Race 3 – #1 STORMIN LARRY looks much the best again.
Race 4 – This is a VERY peculiar place for #2 MY SPARKLING ARCH 2yo $160,000 Keeland purchase to make her first career start. Proceed with caution; #6 LUCKYALLMYLIFE is scheduled to improve in second outing (Houghton/Gorham)
Race 5 – Ohio ACCREDITED stakes: #2 JAC’S FACT towers over the field. His stablemate #3 GEPPETTO completes cold exacta for maybe $4.
Race 6 – Perfect in Ohio #11 CRAZY WILD BESS could sling shot by speedy #7 P TOWN BOO.
Race 7 – #3 BILL NACK and #2 ROCK N HEART are fast enough on their day to be considered upset possibilities to logical selection #10 ALLISEEISGOLD who may be very sharp third off layoff. Box ’em and watch the underdogs try late.
Race 8 – High percentage trainer Dominic Giglio, Jr. returns #10 MR. MILES to his winning distance. #4 INCLUDE VISION drops to a realistic class level.
Race 9 – Second place finish here 10Nov makes #REPENT YE most logical maiden breaker but it never seems seems that simple. Note: Gorham has brought IND/HAW experienced trainee #4 KISSY SUZUKI to town.
