Hoosier Park Racing and Casino Race 10 (Trifecta)
Date: 7/25/2018 Carryover: $0 Guarantee: $20,000
Ticket: 7/1,3,10/ALL – Cost: $12.00 (.50 base)
Yesterday’s Recap – We went three-for-five in a sequence that didn’t have a lot of bombs, but Dan Rawlings winning the fourth leg was enough to cause a Pick 5 carryover. The official Pick 5 order was 5/9/5/6/9 and paid $21.20.
Race 10: #7 ROCKIN TJ raced exceptionally well in his debut from post ten having to make up a lot of ground early. When they turned for home he really fired and drew off easily, that closing kick is something you don’t want to ignore.
#1 HESACAT could potentially upset this field at long odds off the rail after a couple of tough efforts from the outside. Last time out he had to come from way off the pace and made up a ton of ground in the stretch closing in 26.4. Look for him to be on the scene late with a driver change.
#3 TELLMEABOUTIT won three straight before a tough trip on July 12. He faces a tough group, but this is a field he has beaten before. He is the likely pacesetter and could show up if the fractions go his way.
#10 IMA REAL LADYS MAN won by eight in her debut from the rail with Mike Ooosting in the sulky. He got the perfect trip that day, things will be tough from an outside post tonight.
We will use ALL on the back end as this is a completely wide open affair to hit the ticket underneath.
