Mahoning Valley 12/3

Ramblings rather than selections

Race 1
#2 (PP1) OUR LUCKY ZIP ran ok at this level at MNR; was sharp here in the spring. #7 (PP6) FOREST BLAZE has two trips over the track. Hoping that the Burke/Welsh shippers need a race. 3-1-2**-8 $20.60

Race 2
Half of Jeff Radosevich’s MNR shippers (#8 – PP10 CAN’T GET ENOUGH) have scored this fall. Second of the claim #2B (PP6) TOP OF THE WORLD is returning to his preferred distance. #3 (PP4) JESSETHEMARINE was too powerful for his previous barn this summer to ignore if the price is right. 2-5-3*-1A $5.20

Race 3
#1 CHANG has been banging out good figs in West Viginia; Joe Musarro does some of his best work on the lead. If fit #5 PRINCESS MALIA has found some pace to run into here; she digs the surface and distance. #4 FLARING STAR waves lots of red flags but the barn has been out running its odds with newcomers. 4*-1**-2-8 $8.40

Race 4
Tepid lean to Team Loooch re-claim #5 WHERE’S WOODY looks primed for a solid stretch out.  Quicker fractions help the case of Ohio-bred of game closer #8 RIDGE DEFENSE. #7 BETTER SHINE should provide the early pace that was absent when several of these tangled 2Nov. 5**-2-9-1 $8.20

Race 5 (OH ACCREDITED STAKE – 2yo fillies)
Already stakes placed #6 TRUE CINDER was flattered this week when MIZZ QUOTED eased to her maiden win after being destroyed by this one last time. Although over the slop it might be dangerous to ignore the open company win by #4 GRIZABELLA; she’s by well know Buckeye stud Lunapal. Always keep an eye on the Ruberto barn (#2 ROSES FOR SHARON debuts today). 6**-2*-8-4* $2.10

#8 EIGHTTHEHARDWAY finds much softer company today while cutting back a full furlong. Her early running style and dominant stakes win last time make it hard to look past the filly in this race #4 LEONA’S REWARD from Tim Hamm’s hot barn. #5 PLAIN OL’ WILLARD surprised this summer at today’s peculiar distance. ICYMI: #1 GEPPETTO is the defending champ in this stake. 8**-1*-6-2 $3.00

Race 7
#2 (PP7) QUICK HIT FEVER exited an excellent New York barn before scoring her odds on victory at MNR. Most of this field wakes up at this distance but beating hard knocking #9 TEN CENT HAT would be labeled an upset by any of them; she’s been beating good company. #6 (PP4) SENIORITA PRIDE was sharp last time at her best distance; she has an inside advantage on the favorites today. 6*-2**-9*-1 $22.00

Race 8
Ohio-bred #2 (PP1) CLASSIC REWARD gets to strut his stuff along the rail today after a dull effort against better; he has beaten open company before.  #1 (PP6) NIMBLE TIGER drops back into conditions with some pace to attack. Always game #5 (PP4) FORCE MULTIPLIER loves MVR. 4-1*-5*-2** $23.20

Race 9
#9 STONY HILL is fast enough to capture that elusive second win in today’s company; adds Pilares. Over achiever #1 PEA DIDDLE gets another shot at this condition after having his number taken down. Lightly raced #12 TRACY SAID SO has been away for two months but still might be as fit as most of these stuck in a rut n2lers. 9**-1*-5-6 $7.60
