Wednesday (12/2) @ MVR

Ramblings aren’t always wagers.

Race 1 – #3 SKIPTOTHELANE was the most enthusiastic when all off these except the first timer met here 18Nov – winner 3*-6-2-7 ($7.20)

Race 2 – Crisp final quarter while breezing in his last trip could indicate that #2 LOOKOUTBOYS might relish today’s extra distance – winner 2*-11-9-8 ($4.20); DD $18.20

Race 3 –  Speedball #1A (POE; pp6) DUTY CALLS one of the toughest on the grounds could catch #4 GOOSE NO FRUIT off his explosive introduction to MVR against better; can’t split ’em so it’s probably an exacta box for me (along with Gorham bonus #1 IM JUST GOOD also capable in here) – scratch #1A; 4*-2-7-3 ($4.00)

Race 4 – #8 L’S ESCALATOR gets courageous on the lead; big price if she steals this one with apprentice Ashley Kaufman up. #5 CUTIE GIRL backed out of a jam then came again impressively in her last.  #6 DYNAFAX came from the clouds on a speed favoring track 10Nov  – zip, zip, zip 4-9-11-7 ($21.40)

Race 5 – #8 BRIGHT HARBORLITES leads this lackluster N2L field in “in the money” finishes. Milwaukee Brew filly #7 WIND CHARM (25-1-1-3) rolls in from Canada for the Elliot Sullivan barn; she seems to prefer dirt and breezed here – winner 8*-7*-12-11 ($5.80); exacta $11.80

Race 6 – The turn back  should help lightly raced 3yo #6 GIVEITMYBESTSHOT. #12 VEGAS TRIP ground out the place money from a wide trip last time. #8 RED VELVET LADY another lightly raced filly turn back went quickly enough in her maiden win to be considered on the improve –  winner, fourth, zip 6*-10-9-12* ($5.00)      

Race 7 – Houghton sticks with the one to catch #4 NUESHTY. Eliot Sullivan (31% first off claim) sends #5 HONKEYTONKMAN – scratch #4; winner 5-10-8-2 ($3.60)
