Yesterday’s Recap – We hit the exacta portion of the High-5 last night with a price winning at 6/1. The High-5 of 2-1-3-5-6 returned $307.14.
Race 11: We hit the ALL button in the first leg as many of the trotters can score here. #4 ROMPAWAY GALAXY is my top selection coming off a tough losing effort where he had to make up a lot of ground. He has been known to show speed before and I look for him to be tough this week.
Race 12: #3 HOLLYROCK HEYDEN steps up in class this week following a very game, winning effort last week where he went to the lead and never looked back. The trainer picks up the driving duties of this very versatile gelding. #7 UNCLE REIMUS will be really tough this week, the biggest question is the post-position towards the outside. Jason Merriman gets the drive again this week on a gelding that has been pretty consistent.
Race 13: #1 STEALTH BOMBER draws the inside tonight following a strong effort last week from post seven. He has the speed to make the lead and if he can ration out the fractions he could score at a short price. #4 UNLOCKED picks up the services of Chris Page again after being parked the mile last week. He gets some much-needed post relief which could bring him some improvement.
Race 14: #3 LADY JUSTICE draws the inside this week following a couple of tough efforts from the outside. She has a good amount of early contentious speed which I would expect would allow her to be close to the pace. Look for a strong effort.
