Thistledown 9/26

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #5 BRASS BUCKLE gets an opportunity to sit behind a potential duel after chasing loose WILL OF A KING who was notching his third in a row last time. Interesting option #7 OBSESSIONSOPTIMIST gets more respect than most Cincy shippers. He was sharp here in May and has a touch of back class. $7.00 winner  5*-3-2-7*

Race 2 – #7 MARCHING IN FRONT may flip that 10Sep finish with #3 ROAD PARADE as they cut back today. These two seem to hold the keys to a short priced exacta. 3*-7*-1-5 ($10.80)

Race 3 – #3 VISUAL MISSION battled and lost along the rail last time. He may shake loose here. (Gate scratch #3 VISUAL MISSION) 6-1A-7-5 ($14.00)

Race 4 – #6 THUNDERUPALLEY woke up going too fast too soon last time. Today’s distance gives him a chance to last. Owner of California import #4 RICKLES Terry Kristek has appeared with only one other horse at this meet, four time winner I CAN’T GET ENOUGH who shows up in the next race today. Santa Anita shippers are 2/6 at the meet; both winners were Team Loooch shippers. 1-3-2-4* ($30.80)

Race 5 – #4 REASON TO BE PROUD seems to have his act back together and appears versatile enough to rate behind the looming battle for the lead here. Win machine #7 CAN’T GET ENOUGH gets back to his best distance; faces a vigorous challenge on the front throughout.2-4*-5-6 ($7.00)

Race 6 – #4 SPRING LIGHTNING has shown enough perk in the mornings here to believe that she will handle her first lifetime trip on dirt. #1 ENTERPRISING LADY blazed in her first work Ohio – goes here after being scratched Saturday. 1*-6-4*-3 ($3.60)

Race 7 – #1A (PP6) PUT UP WITH IT may have a slight home track advantage facing these speedy Ohio-bred ladies. #7 (PP9) LADY BUCKEYE could be a price from off the pace if she’s fit. She was last seen being vanned off in May. (Scratch #7 LADY BUCKEYE) 1-1A*-2-2B-3-4 ($3.40)

Race 8 – Recent maiden breaking Ohio-bred #5 OHIO CHROME can run with these. #1 NIKISPRING looms large with speed along the rail. #8 PREMIER ACCESS has a sharp workout since his dull return to the races. Morales is 30% second off layoff – he drops this one drastically. 1*-8*-3-4 ($4.00)
