Yesterday’s Recap – We missed a decent payoff yesterday after hitting only three of four races as our single Southwind Amazon missed the board. The Pick 4 of 3/1/2/4 returned $444.80.
Race 13: #1 TC’S HAPPY TIME draws the rail following a disappointing effort last week where he was parked out from post six. Throw that start out and look at the start two back he won decisively in the Ohio Fair Championship. Expect another big effort here.
#2 LONG LIVE THE KING made a very uncharacteristic break two starts back and bounced back with a game effort in his next start. He has a good amount of early speed and should be apart of the early pace-scenario.
#6 DONTFORGETMASTER looked very sharp last week with Wrenn in the sulky for the first time. Once this colt got to the top he never looked back. I’m looking for another good effort this week.
#5 BANKER TWETYFIVE made a break last week following a second-place effort two weeks ago. His inability to stay on stride is a little concerning, but if he can behave himself he could be apart of the ticket.
#9 ONEMOREBRO is a very consistent gelding who has hit the board in all but three starts this year. He gets a decent draw this week as he can follow speed towards the inside. Expect him to be on the ticket.
