Very blind stabs in unfamiliar territory . . .
Race 1: #7 CUSTOM INFINITY looked like a real race horse until his legs turned to rubber near the wire last time; drops out of special weight company; second route. 6/4/7*/3 ($5.80)
Race 2: #1, pp2 AGORA should be fit today after that wicked three-quarters in her route debut; back to sprinting this time. She and half of this field parachute out of special weight company. 1*/2/4/7 ($5.80)
Race 3 (Masters distance): Inside post gives lone speed #3 DAISY CREEK assured early jump on strong contenders; rushed up last time; Willie Martinez returns to the saddle. 8/3*/9/6 ($6.20)
Race 4: #4 SHEKKY SHEBAZ looks like the class and speed here; toss in Jose Ortiz = 3/5 maybe? 7/4*/2/6 ($21.00)
Race 5 G2 Presque Isle Downs Masters Stakes $400,000 f&m 6.5 furlongs:
Roger Attfield has had #3 MINKS APRISE working lights out for this spot; stakes winner here in 2016; usually fires when fresh. #7 AMI’S MESA is too sharp to ignore; also fond of Woodbine’s artificial surface. #2 CLOTHES FALL OFF travels in very good company; also appears pointed for this test; no artificial experience is a concern. Scratch #3 MINKS APRISE; 7*/12/11/4 ($4.60)
Let me know what you think.
