Thistledown 9/21

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #1 DISCREET FLOWER was outrun early last time by JOYRIDING, a filly on the move. She can escape NL2 jail with a more aggressive ride back today. $2.40 winner 1-2-4-6

Race 2 – #5 PARRAKEET is the new face in town and fresher than the rest. $10.00 winner 5-4-2-1

Race 3 – #1 STARLIT FANTASY flashes much the best sprint fig.$3.80 winner  1-7-5-2

Race 4 – Nabu Morales will be picking from a powerful entry. #2 JESSETHEMARINE and #2B REASON TO BE PROUD are both sharp and ready. #7 COTTONWOOD CANYON has been competitive with these in the past but fell off drastically last time for new connections. #1 (POE) MIZZ WIZZ dropping a couple classes is an interesting option. Scratch #2, #1; #7 lost rider (1A, 2B ran) 3-2-5-1A

Race 5 – This is a dicey Ohio allowance at the testing one mile distance. #1 LEONA’S REWARD and #5 FAST JUSTICE may duel early. #4 OHIO GOLD would profit from that scenario if neither of them clears off. #3 KERFLUFFLE can be excused for her loss to Ohio stakes boys on the turf after beating stakes fillies over Cincy’s grass making her a player for an outfit that moves from dirt to turf successfully at a 31% clip. Another “needs the lead” type #2 STRIKING LASS usually hits the board. $6.20 winner 4-1-2-5

$10 DIME A DAY play: $5 WP #4 returns $24 = +14

Race 6 – Half mile dash for the cash: Quick from the gate and posted outside gives #8 RAVIN ABOUT RICHIE a chance measure speedy #2 BATTLED who leaves from the rail. 2($4.60)-4-8-6

Race 7 – #6 SINCERE DEVOTION wires some talented 2yo company if he runs back to that maiden breaking effort. 5-7-6-9

Race 8 – #10 ACE RICH has been finishing deceptively well and may fit here at a nice number. Today’s jock TD HOUGHTON seems to bring the best out of him. #1 CUPID’S HIT recorded the fastest 6f time in this field last time; the old warrior gets a slightly lighter condition here. As always Morlona Racing with #2 TROPICAL DEPUTY is the elephant in the room. (Houghton is off #10) 1($10.60)-9-2-11
