Thistledown 9/16

Today’s trivia:

Race 1 – #5 RUN RUN will get the heart pumping early at a price but #4 PROPER TOUCH is much the best on paper despite wearing an obvious for sale sign. Winner $3.80 4-5-2-6

Race 2 – #3 GABIO is another short price that is hard to discount. He has scored against similar at this quirky four  furlong distance over this surface. #6 JUMELAKA may be the bet; believe it or not he is stretching out; gets the outside post and shows some back class. Scratch 2-6-4-5

Race 3 – #4 PYRITE MILL seems rejuvenated by the return to his former barn. 3-2-4-5

Race 4 – This is a Buckeye baby mystery; list of unfamiliar names on the breeders lines. 7-6-1-4

Race 5 – #4 JOYRIDING looks to remain undefeated in Ohio against relatively soft company. Ellis Park import, #5 JEANINES GOLD, has probably been facing better but feels like “fool’s gold.” 6-4-7-2

Race 6 – More baby Buckeyes: this batch of fillies includes a daughter of Flatter, #5 ADJULATE. 1-2-8-6

Race 7 – #5 BELGRAVIA’S HOPE always gives an honest effort; will be in position if this race falls apart. 

DIME A DAY PLAY $5 WP #5   7-5-4-2 returned $14 = +$4

Race 8 – #7 A LAUGH AND A JOKE takes a big class dip after tossing a klunker in the slop at Mountaineer. 9-5(DQ)-3-7
