Thistledown 10/12

Ramblings rather than selections . . .

Race 1 – #3 BLACK SHREK draws tepid support off two turn trip against better 19Sep. Paceless bunch – could provide a surprise. 5-3*-7-2 ($26.00)

Race 2 – Youthful #2 ROSCOE’S INDY HOPE should get first jump; must be “speed of speed” to prevail. Today’s cutback might help #3 JODY’S POWER. 5-2*-7-3*  ($50.40)

Race 3 – #6 PLENTY ELUSIVE ships from Indiana fit and ready; Israel Garcia makes this move well. #5 CANTCATCHTHEGROOM is the quickest of the locals; TD Houghton joins the team today. 1-4-7-6* ($14.80)

Race 4 – His success on the east coast tied to the speed/fade comeback effort is a persuasive angle pointing toward #6 GOLDEN MOON. 2-4-3-6* ($9.20)

Race 5 – #4 NIKISPRING cruised by a field last time that included Monday’s winner SQUIDALEN. #8 STREET LAW may be a class over speed play if the price is very right – a speed duel could produce an upset.  #6 BOSPHORUS STORM is the paper tiger trying to maintain his sudden speed spurt. 6*-4*-9-8* ($5.40)

Race 6 – #5 TOP OF THE WORLD is capable of staying hot while climbing back up the class ladder. $3.00 winner 5*-11-1-7

Race 7 – #4 HAPPYISOUTBACK may have enough recent conditioning to catch track/distance angle #7 RED ALL OVER who has been away from two turns since early July. Grinder #5 WEDDED PRINCE is usually good for a piece. 8-7*-4*-2 ($22.80)

Race 8 – #6 VISUAL MISSION gets loose today at this distance. #1 (POE/PP5) COINCINDENTALLY recently beat most of these going shorter after the lean scratched. Playing against Loyalty Stakes runners who went in a roaring storm that may have jumbled the outcome. 1*-6*-3-8 ($17.60)
