Thistledown 9/17

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #3 WEDDED PRINCE may get the set up that he needs today. 2-7-3-1

Race 2 – Despite a running style contrary to this track’s bias #5 I LOVE IT has been knocking at the door since arriving from Philly. This race could fall to him. $6.60 winner 5-2-7-4

Race 3 – #2 PRICELESS SHORE gets to control his own destiny along the rail. 1-7-2-4

Race 4 – #5 DANCING RICO danced his last dance just off PROPER TOUCH who won yesterday’s opener. This field littered with tough to beat connections might heighten the reward if he can outlast them. $2.60 winner 5-4-1-7

Race 5 – Potentially ten 2y0 maidens: #2 (POE) ABOVE THE CROWD adds blinkers for a trainer with a 50% hit rate when making that move. 3-4-1-2

Race 6 – #1 DEVIL N LACE has an opportunity here after rallying behind #5 BASKETBALL BELLA who found a hole on the rail last time. Interestingly #3 LEI IT ON ME runs right back for his new stable and hot trainer/jock combo. 5-1-2-6

$10 DIME A DAY PLAY – $3 WP #1; $2 EX BX 1/3 returns $9 = -$1

Race 7 – $75k Scarlet and Gray Handicap for OH-bred fillies and mares; 6f

Relatively short but talented field brings together last year’s top two finishers with a speedy 3yo newcomer. Front running sophomore filly #1 PROPER DISCRETION may be worth a shot off her last fractions but this is clearly her toughest test to date. 2-1-5-3

Race 8 – #8 MENDASSITY got weird in the stretch last time while burning lots of money. The price won’t be right today either but expect her to kick loose to complete the double. $3.00 winner 8-4-3-5
