USTA Play of the Day

by Michael Carter

Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment Race 8 (Pick 4)
Date: 7/27/2018  Carryover: $0  Guarantee: $50,000

Ticket: 1,3,6,7/1,7/6,7,8,10/2,3,6,9 – Cost: $64.00 (.50 base)

Yesterday’s Recap – We went one-for-four yesterday with a score with #1 YOUMAKEMYHEARTSING in Race 6.  The official Pick 4 was 8/1,5,6/5/7 and paid $2,237.75.


Race 8: #1 WINDSUN GLORY two starts back got a terrible trip going the extended distance of a mile and an eighth.  She was parked the mile in that effort and still only managed to finish 5 ¼ lengths off the lead.  The next start for her was much better and I can see continued improvement here.  #8 ROCKIN PRALINE is one of the more consistent mares in the group hitting the board in four of her last five starts.  She gets a tough draw on the outside for trainer Nick Surick, but she has shown speed from out here before.  Look for her to be on the scene.

Race 9: #2 COMMANDER PARIS N adds Lasix for the first time this week off a very impressive effort at Pocono on July 17.  That night he raced over a very sloppy track and still showed a lot of promise.  Look for him to be close to the pace.

Race 10: #1 METEORIC closed very nicely from off the pace last week, but started just too far back.  He draws the rail this week and that makes him extremely dangerous against these.  #5 SWEET JUSTICE tired very badly in the stretch last week, turning for home something looked amiss, but it just looked like he was tired.  His second start off a short layoff could be a winning one.  #6 MAN OF MUSCLE got a terrible draw last week and never recovered racing at Yonkers at the extended mile and a quarter distance.  Driver change to Callahan tonight.

Race 11: #2 DAENERYS HANOVER is one of the more consistent horses in the group and gets Tetrick back in the bike this week after a game effort from post three last time out.  The inside draw seems to play to his advantage, but the trip will tell the tale.  #6 JENNA HANOVER has only one win in 2018, but his early speed could allow him to get into the race early.
