Thistledown 7/29

Race 1: #2 KERF usually shows early speed which was helpful in routes yesterday; the extra yardage can’t be a plus. #7 CLASSIC GIACNROLL is an interesting project to watch. #8 VIGILANTE LAW is still turning out competitive figs. 2*-1-5-3 ($3.00)

Race 2: Ohio bred 2yo fillies should make the paddock an interesting place to hang out. Firster #7, pp6 PUT A HEX ON MY EX has name value, plus she fired two bullet works this month. 7*-1-5-8 ($4.00)

Race 3: #6 COINCIDENTALLY gets back to what he does best; Pablo Morales returns for the ride. 6*-2-1a-3 ($3.80)

Race 4: #2 JILLY FROM JERSEY shows a combination of speed and stamina that seems to be building while she struggles at this condition. Raw times put her in the hunt with these. Closing sprinters like #5 GREELEY AND GOLD did well yesterday. #6 ADALZARA finally returns to one turn; Walter jumps back on. 2*-5*-1-4 ($5.80)

Race 5: #1 UNBRIDLED CAT should sit the perfect trip; DeCosta slides Walter to his saddle and recruits Quinones for his other runner. #7 TEN GUITARS has to be considered relative to this field at this distance. 1*-2-6*8 ($3.80)

Race 6: #9 CASCABRIA has been the quickest of these on this surface at this distance. Churchill shipper, #4 HONOR RIDE, takes a huge drop to put a notch in her belt; interesting trainer stats; Grant Forester has been spotting maidens throughout the midwest mostly successfully in recent weeks . Gary Johnson’s barn (#6 R LAGUNA LUCKY) is white-hot. 8-6*-4*-3 ($12.20)

Race 7: #4 SHEZA RULER sparkled in her Thistledown debut. It gets deeper for her today. Gary Johnson’s “white-hot” barn sends two. #6, pp7 MAMA SPLASH looks likely to set or press the pace. #5, pp6 CATCHUMDENSE will be on the scene late if the top two tire. 3-6*-4*-5*

Race 8: The cutback makes #3 ELEVEN CENT FAINOR an interesting prospect. #2 HORSERADISH has a string six furlong clockings quick and consistent enough to believe that he’ll show up to compete today. Wide, wide open race . . . 8-3*-6-9 ($14.00)
