Hoosier Park Racing and Casino Race 13 (Hoosier Hi-5)
Date: 10/11/2018 Carryover: $6,854.89 Guarantee: $20,000
Ticket: 4,7/4,7,9/4,7,8,9/2,4,7,8,9/ALL– Cost: $19.20 ($.20 cent base)
Yesterday’s Recap – We had a major flop yesterday with our two horses not hitting the ticket and #2 Star Of The Show who I thought would bounce back nicely, did not. The trifecta of 6/9/5 returned $212.75
Race 13: #4 BOYROCKTHEFARM had to come from way back last week in the Series final and narrowly missed in the end. He gets a good draw for the first time in a few starts, his final times say he is ready against this class.
#7 ROSE RUN URIAH has won two of his last four starts and has handled all adversity thus far pretty well. He is a speedy gelding that likes to move off of the gait. Look for him to be leaving early and battling on at the end.
#9 QUICK ARACACHE gets a tough draw but is dropping down in class after some tough efforts against Sire Stakes company. When he drops in class he is normally close to hitting the ticket. Expect a decent trip here.
#8 HESACAT is another class dropper that really does well when he is down in class. He has a little bit of early speed to contend with and has been facing some fierce company in the Indiana Sire Stakes. Widger is back in the bike tonight, maybe.
#2 OMEGA CAT has not been drawing that great over the past couple of starts, but finally is in a position to score from the inside. When he is on or near the lead, he is a solid contender.
