Yesterday’s Recap – We went three-for-four on Thursday night at Hoosier Park, scoring a price and just couldn’t get a single home. The Pick 4 of 1,7,8/1,4/4/8 returned $63.15. There was no Play of the Day on Friday.
Race 13: #6 ALLIART draws tough again this week, but get Lems back in the bike this week who has been getting along with this mare. She is versatile and has a big ability to be put into the race. Look for a big effort.
#7 JULIANA’S DIRECTOR has a good amount of early speed and steps in back in class tonight for trainer Pat Moran. She faces a little easier company than she has previously and that may make the difference.
#3 UPTOWN ROMANCE will probably not be 5/2 when the bell goes off, but this mare returns to the half-mile track where she has shown a good amount of ability. She draws well towards the inside and should race back well.
#9 A DANDY BRYER was placed fifth last out after an absolutely brutal trip. She gets a little bit better post tonight as she will be able to follow speed out. Expect a good effort.
#1 BUSCO JAZZ is another very strong contender who draws the rail tonight looking for a little bit of improvement. She has a little bit of contentious speed and that could play to her favor as she can control the pace from the rail.
