Ramblings aren’t always wagers.
Race 2 – #4 WITH GRATITUDE looks prepped to cap a dramatic comeback story after nearly two years on the shelf. #5 MANGO TART could stretch out at a price second race back moving to her best distance – winner, zip 4*-8-10-4 ($4.40)
Race 5 – When #5 RAVEN ABOUT RICHIE wins it’s usually in these five furlong “dash for the cash” events; turning back from a sharp sprint makes him tough. Also quick early is #10 SHANE ROARS leaving from one of the wide post positions that has dominated at this distance; jockey Louis Quinones record (1/68) doesn’t boost confidence – second, first 10*-5*-9-3 ($27.80) ex $81.60
Race 6 – Note: This race is littered with shippers (7). Currently those types are 1/15 (WO), 1/1 (TP), 0/1 (DED) in their first races here. #8 (PP9) PORTA CAYA comes to town with a work here for Paula Loescher and owner Nichole Lapointe; the same connections and pattern that scored Monday with 2yo TATTERSAIL and top jock TD Houghton – fourth 6-11-5-8* ($16.20)
Race 7 – #2 TENSAS TOUGH is proven over this course at today’s distance; the presence of Gorham/Radosevich might bolster the price while the two hole is a concern. Looking to the outside #10 PLEASANT TRIP finished well after missing the break 17Nov – third, zip 6-9-2*-4 ($9.40)
Race 8 – #5 LA GRAN EMILY drops a few classes for her debut in Austintown with lack luster Canadian credentials that scream proceed with caution in this random finale – winner 5*-4-7-8 ($3.20)
