Yesterday’s Recap – We only went two-for-five yesterday, but there were some long bombs that knocked us out of the sequence. It was a highly contested sequence and turned out to be very profitable for the few who had the winning combination of 6/8/2/6/8 and paid $6,845.60.
Race 10: We took down last week’s trifecta during the races, let’s see if we can do it again! #1 CHASING MADI could light up the tote board tonight off a tough effort last time out. She was beginning to make up ground but was then impeded around the final turn. She is a very consistent filly who adds Lasix for the second time and should race back well.
#4 FULLY A VIRGIN did not seem to like the second tier last week as she made a middle move and just did not fire. Tonight she gets a better post facing a little easier company, look for her to be around this week.
#7 PANSY’S IMAGE closed from off the pace last week and drew off to win easily in the stretch. If you can get 5/1 on her I would be very impressed. Tetrick picks off this week so that will allow John DeLong to pick up the mount.
#9 ROCKIN NOLA has won two straight races, all from off the pace. She is a gutsy filly who likes to close in the stretch and draw off from her competitors, this is another longer priced horse I am willing to take a chance with.
#2 PURE MAID and #3 KAK’S ROCKIN both have big chances to hit the board this week and should be considered underneath.
