Thistledown 10/8

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #4 DODGE CITY drops to score. A repeat of his last trip by #7 SUCCESSFUL PLAN would be good enough to shock at a price. (Scratch #4 DODGE CITY) 2-1-7*-6 ($37.80)

Race 2 – #6 CARAMELO may wear down the other early runner in the final yards. #3 AL’S PRAYER would profit if the CARAMELO and FORTY GRINDER duel for the lead. 5-3*-6*-1 ($19.60)

Race 3 – #6 INDIELO is much the fastest at six furlongs. 4-2-3-6* ($23.60)

Race 4 – #4 PELICAN MOON holds the upper hand in face to face matches with several in this field; returns to maiden company loose on the lead today. 7-3-1-8 ($59.20)

Race 5 – Closed for the season Presque Isle refugees continue their parade to Cleveland. #5 HINT OF SARCASM appears to have been running with winners in Erie; began her career on dirt. $3.40 winner 5*-1A-4-7

Race 6 – #3 KING OF BLING adds lasix. #8 DOWNTOWNBIGBROWN went evenly last time; should improve today. 8*-2-1*-3 ($4.60)

Race 7 – #3 JUSTALITTLESMOKE is a hot filly. $2.60 winner 3*-2-4-5

Race 8 – Local #6 I GOT THE TIME has transitioned well to the dirt; might out duel the invaders. The shippers’ class advantage provides an opportunity despite lack of experience on dirt. #7 SHINY SURPRISE gets the lean to press and pass #3 TWO CITIES in the lane. 7*-8-12-5 ($6.80)
