Thistledown 9/24

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #2 ARISTOCRAT AGAIN is the fastest of the locally based runners. #3 HONKEYTON MAN should be sharp and read going second off a lengthy vacation but making the tough (8%) ship from Mountaineer. Opposite running styles may bring them together near the wire. Pick a price. Winner $13.60 2*-3-4-5

Race 2 -#3 I GOT THE TIME has a distinct speed advantage coupled with the pressing running style that has kept her in the money since travelling from Presque Isle while taking a class dip. 4-5-6-7 ($6.00)

Race 3 – Solid favorite #6 EXILEONMAINSTREET gets the nod despite making this drop and failing previously. SPRINGTIME CITY who caught her late 09Sept broke her maiden yesterday against special weights. Winner $4.00 6*-2-3-1

Race 4 – #7 GREG RULES DA has been moving through some solid barns on his way to Thistledown and is likely anxious to get back on dirt. Olivo Inirio is 2/9 with his Florida imports. #3 CANTCATCHTHEGROOM may be tough to reel in off the rest while cutting back. 5-1-2-3 ($4.40)

Race 5 – Southern connections soured quickly on #2 ENTERPRISING LADY when her sophomore season started off slowly. That recent local work indicates that she still has four legs and could threaten in this strange collection of shippers and imports. (Scratched down to three horses – #2 is out) 7-4-3 ($3.20)

Race 6 – #1 GRAB THE CASH has won off layoffs before; may be poised to run this group of its feet. #6 CANTICO may be the best late runner on the grounds. She continues to clash with winners. 6*-3-1*-2 ($5.60)

$10 DIME A DAY PLAY – $5 W #1, $5 EX 1/6 = -$10

Race 7 – $75k Catlaunch Stakes for Accredited* OH-breds 1 1/16 miles (*must be bred in the state rather than just born here)

#2 PYRITE MILL  was probably claimed back when the price was right with an eye on this target. Wide open race. 5-2*-7-8 ($3.40)

Race8 – Joining this group of n2y regulars #2 FLASHY ZEE may be the real deal locally after running down a loose 1/5 shot and next time winner in her local debut. #5 ROCKIN HUMOR posted this group’s best 6f clocking of the season 09Sept. #9 MAYBE LILY gets to run back at this condition after her DQ in August. 8-5*-7-1 ($10.40)
