Thistledown 8/5

Just rambling . . .

Race 1: #5 BELIEF returns to her favorite distance as sharp as any if you trust the connections. Otherwise, all signs seem to point toward #1 LAURIE’S VISION. 2-1*-3-5 ($24.00)

Race 2: 3C, pp9 BOOGIE TOO has the fastest recent six furlong times. If #2, pp3, A’INTYOUDREAMIN, remains in, he threatens to repeat his front end score. scratch #2; 2b-1a-3c*-6 ($7.20)

Race 3: #1 RAVIN ABOUT RICHIE was much the best “of the rest” the last time this distance; cornering speed kicks him loose from the pack? #1 was late scratch; 2-5-4-6 ($5.80)

Race 4: Speedy #4 STRIKING LASS returns to Ohio company after a rare Candance Huffman claim. 7-4*5-1 ($11.00)

Race 5: When right #3 VIGILANT LAW can close the deal. 1-3*-4-5 ($5.20)

Race 6: Anybody who knows #6 MO DONT NO knows that he’s by far the most likely. #1 GONE TO SOON gets the rail and a chance to be up late if the big horse is off or #2 JOCKER JUSTICE hangs long enough to make the stretch run a challenge. Probably overthinking: Bridge jumpers get in line? scratch #2; 6*-5-4-2 ($2.60)

Tim Hamm sends three from recognizable stallions. #1A. pp5 CANDY EXCHANGE and #1X, pp7 AWAKEN completed the exacta in last month’s going 5 1/2 furlongs. Bridge jumpers get in line? Alternative hope is #2, pp1 TIZ A RUSH who is yet to get a smooth break from the gate. 1x*-5-(3-1a*)DH ($2.60)

Race 8: The slight cutback could make things right for #6 ALLTHELEAVESRBROWN who seemed in control, until he wasn’t 21July facing many of these. 6*-8-4-3 ($5.40)
