Thistledown 9/28

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #6 ASIAN SUN fired a bullet work at Parx before setting sail for today’s first attempt in Cleveland. He has been competitive in California against better. #5 EQUAL REASON is consistently the fastest of the locals. $3.20 winner 6*-4-2-3

Race 2 – The local debut sends #1A (PP8) FASHIONABLY HANDSOME to the head of this field but a line must be drawn through that mysterious last effort(?) against tougher. $3.40 winner 1A*-2-1-7-6

Race 3 – #4 SUMAMATADA finished last time as if he was willing to go further. The bump in class may not be significant here against career maidens. #3 SEAS COURAGE and #6 MELTDOWN MAX have both posted several decent times but remain winless. 1-4*-2-6* ($6.40)

Race 4 – Early turn of foot and experience on this race track give #2 (PP1) MAXIMILIAN a slim chance to beat #1A (PP5) UNITTIMIDATED the $230k son of Big Drama or his stablemate #1 PAPA MOON. 6-1A*-1*-3-5 ($47.80)

Race 5 – Taking some much needed class relief #4 IS TRUE is the fastest local regular at this distance. #3 PINOT NOIR and #5 OMNIVELLY both figure to improve in their second trips over the track. $5.60 winner 4*-3*-2-1

Race 6 – #2 ALLIE SWEET is the fastest at this distance and has a couple excuses for her dismal finish last time in a decent field. #7 JIDDY appears targeted for this spot after not being asked in her return race. 5-2*-3-6 ($13.80)

Race 7 – #6 RUN RUN can be forgiven for giving way late to tough PROPER TOUCH last time. #3 DAPPER TAPPER is the fastest here when he brings his best. A duel would supply an opportunity for #7 ROCK N HEART. 3*-6*-9-8 ($7.40)

Race 8 – Recent claim #8 BOSPHORUS STORM torched NIKISPRING 12Sep. That one danced back a winner on Monday – Jevon Crumley puts winless Alex Gonzalez in the saddle? #3 BEAR HUNTER switches barns and jocks after a wide late rally in his well bet Thistledown debut.  Needs the lead type and possible favorite #9 AWESOME PRIZES might be worth a play against returning to one turn. 1A-8*-4-1-10 ($21.40)
