Mahoning Valley 11/26

Race notes for Saturday

Race 1 (OH)
Precocious 3yo #6 WANDA’S BENTLEY chooses to return to the races at this level after dusting allowance competition in June; he’s most likely but I’m suspicious. #1 KINETIC ART has been facing softer than the assumed favorite here; his recent win over this surface is reason to hope. Veteran #4 BLUE TIE AFFAIR is in play if a speed duel develops. (Scratch #1 KINETIC ART) $2.60 winner 6*-4*-2-5

Race 2
#2 MR GIGGLES (OH) disappointed when he packed it in late last time; the fastest of these going long or short perhaps he shows up tighter today. $3.60 winner 2*-4-5-8

Race 3
Trainer/owner Loren Cox brought his stock to town fit last season. His #7 FUR LINED appears to be well spotted. #3 VIRTUAL VISION is enough of a stayer to challenge to surprise here if the lean doesn’t show up. #4 APPLESLASTCHANCE ran evenly last time behind yesterday’s impressive winner UTOPIA’S VIRGIN. 3*-2-7*-1A ($9.60)

Race 4
#5 WILD KARD KOWGIRL should profit the cut back; Colon usually gets this barn’s best stock. #9 WONDERFUL FINISH could be a late player at today’s distance. $4.40 winner 5*-4-9*-7

Race 5
#6 INDIYGO CAT rebounded well after being checked in the first turn last time. Jeff Radosevich (#3 WARREN’S T. BLAZE) has shipped two winners in from Mountaineer but will probably bring a short price despite a flat last. Lightly race #5 DRAWBRIDGE may be sharper facing cheaper. 3*-1-4-2 ($3.80)

Race 6
#4 BOSPHORUS STORM had to alter course in mid-stretch last time. #10 BIG CAT’S HAT will have the help of plenty early speed to help time his late charge. 2-6-9-4* ($21.20)

Race 7 (Registered Ohio Stake)
Inexperience may be her enemy but the final quarter of her maiden win gives #7 MYTHICAL LADY a chance to upset. #1 PROPER DISCRETION is fast enough to run these off their feet with the older lady eliminated from this event; the rail will make her difficult if not hooked early. 1*-8-5-4 ($2.40)

Race 8
Loren Cox shows up with a possible pair (#2 SILENT SCREAM and #2B BEAR’S CONDUCTORY) again well spotted but the post positions are a concern. #5 HINTOFPERFECTION came away from the gate quickly enough last time to make him the one to catch today. $4.60 winner 2B*-6-4-5*
