Mahoning Valley 11/05

Race notes for Saturday

Race 1 – #5 MOCHA GEM is in for William Van Meter whose earlier entry this meet scored. Also lightly raced #2 SHADES OF LIGHT was competitive here in the winter/spring. $2.80 winner 5*-2*-6-4

Race 2 -I think that #1 ROBIN’S SONG scratched earlier this week to land in this spot; has a workout here. #8 ARSENIC AND LACE returns to claiming company. 4-5-8*-6 ($23.80)

Race 3 – #1 EBBY looks like a 2/5 single returning to the MVR sand. 3-6-1*-5 ($4.80)

Race 4 – A trio that enjoy racing in Austintown tangle here. #2 IM MR RIGHT could get the best trip pressing behind the others. #4 HONKYTONK MAN has been going better lately than another local favorite #3 PISCEAN REALIST. 1-2*-4*-3* ($7.80)

Race 5 – The slight cut back in distance could hit a sweet spot for #7 FOCUS POCUS. #3 DOUGHBOY BAY looks the one to catch; first try on dry dirt. 6-7*-3*-2 ($26.40)

Race 6 – #4 RAINY DAZE last effort doesn’t seem in line with 20/1 morning line. #2 AWESOME PRIZES can front end this bunch if Ms. Kaufman puts him in the race early. 2*-1-3-5 ($6.00)

Race 7 – #8 FORESTER’S DIVA runs best when in this barn; early speed is a plus as she tumbles to the bottom of the claiming ranks. #7 SPITTIN’ FEATHERS is fresh; likes the distance. 9-8*-5-2 ($17.40)

Race 8 – If #3 LIVIN DISCREETLY doesn’t detest dirt he waltzes home here. That “speed and fade” effort at Indy puts #7 (PP8) ARTAVIA a chance. $9.80 winner 3*-7*-9-1A
