Thistledown 7/28

Ramblings . . . Tweet me with your critique.

Race 1: Short but sharp field here. #1 QUIET RAY has clicked twice since arriving with Kim Puhl’s nice group from OP; his figs and class stack up well. 6-1*-5-3 ($15.80)

Race 2: Spicey rematch of 12July even with additional speed signed on. #5 QUEEN OF SILENCE looked strongest of all finishing that July race; gets plenty of pace to chase. 1-8-3-6 ($11.60)

Race 3: #8, pp9 HAPPY TO BE HERE could get rewarded if Luis Colon lets him run early, he is a candidate to get a loose lead. #2 WANDERING KITTEN dips into conditioned racing with the best recent speed figs in the field and Walter back in the saddle. His deep closing style is a concern. 8*-2*-5-3 ($7.00)

Race 4: #7 MASQUERADE PARTY gets to eyeball pending speed duel from outside-in; brings along stable rabbit #6 RAVIN ABOUT RICHIE to ensure blazing fractions. 2-3(dq)-4-7*-5 ($8.20)

Race 5: The clash of class front-runners could lighten the load for #3, pp1 EKATI’S ICE. That snappy trip 30June from #5, pp7 SOUTH TO THE SEA has been flattered by a return winner. 5*-3*-7-2B ($5.20)

Race 6: Loooch/Rini send out a powerful entry. #4 THE GREEN COUGAR likes this surface and distance; a chalky misstep would give him hope. 1*-6-1A*-3 ($2.40)

Race 7: Ron Potts cashed the last time that #2 JAGUAR POZ shipped to CLE; he brings his regular jock back to town. 2*-3-5-7 ($5.00)

Race 8: #1, pp7 LADY PANTHER falls back into n1y condition sporting multiple wins at six furlongs. #8, pp9 YOUR MOVE returned to racing with a speed/fade move; adds Rex Stokes III today. Wide open. 5-1*-6-1A ($9.00)
