MVR 1-30-16

Ramblings aren’t always wagers.

 Race 1 – #4 SEAS COURAGE has flushed lots of money since arriving from California in September but continues to tease; best two turn efforts among these rivals; full of courage last time. Morning line favorite #1 RAY’s LEGACY shows figs consistently higher than everyone in this field; stretching out here – 2-1*-4*-6 ($14.40)

 Race 2 – #5 I AM THE KING lands in one of the softest spots he’s found in years; distance fits. #2 RUHL PAUL finished willingly 20Jan after losing ground turning for home. #1 FINE has been facing strong company; late running style is a concern.  – 2*-4-1*-5* ($11.00)

 Race 3 – #2 SEEKING A MILE could get a perfect trip behind several early speed types. #1 LUKEYONTHELOOSE blazed on 11Jan’s frozen surface; if not collared early he’ll be gone. #4 DAGGERS DUEL out finished LUKEYONTHELOOSE last time – 1*-2*-8-4* ($5.60)

 Race 4 – #7 DANGER INTENTION has been facing better at unusual distances. #6 EVENING CONCERTO extended himself well last time; usually hits the board at MVR. #8 DUTTON’S PRIDE must pick up his game for solid barn– 2–7*-8*-6* ($14.00)

 Race 5 – Frustrating entrance to the pick 4: William Cowans brings #8 DYVED north for his 3yo debut off an extended program of well planned workouts. #5 CASTLEFINN has worked three times this month in Kentucky for low profile connections after beginning his career in Florida; watch the toteboard. #4 MY FRIEND DAVID has raced well here and has the most recent activity; finished his last race like a drunken sailor; loses his jock to the Florida invader – scratch #5; 4*-8*-6-8 ($8.40)

 Race 6 – #4 PISCEAN REALIST might be classier and more versatile than first glance would suggest; gutsy finisher. #3 CROWD FAVORITE has been stalking lesser; quick early pace would give him a chance late. Most likely winners #1 TO THE TOP AND BACK or #6 PEARL OF WISDOM are in jeopardy of flaming each other out. A very contentious set of serious $4k claimers – 2-8-4*-9 ($14.20)

 Race 7 – #8 COLONIAL BANNER seems the most determined router. #7 MACUTO returns to winning distance with east coast experience. #5 DUMAANI’S ACTOR perked up last time for new connections; Bracho stays aboard – 11-2-12-6 ($14.20)

 Race 8 – #1 ZEKE MCCOOL has been finishing with punch. #10 PLAYING WITH FIRE went evenly in a hot heat coming off a freshening 12Jan. #4 TRUE HEAVEN was full of run after extremely wide trip last time; returns to winning distance –  6-8-9-4* ($5.60)
