Yesterday’s Recap – We had a decent go of things yesterday going three-for-five in a Pick 5 that paid extremely well. The biggest price of the sequence for us was in Race 12 where Eric Goodell brought home Our G G to a 12.60 win mutual. The official Pick 5 was 5/1/2/5/1 and paid $2,150.00
Race 10: #3 PASSIONATE DESIRE could be the value play of the exotic ticket with a 15/1 morning line. She gets a really good draw towards the inside and against this class from an inside post last time she looked extremely sharp. Driver change to Andy Shetler.
#8 BLUERIDGE ADILENE was fourth last week and was closing in a hurry. She has shown a big closing kick in two of her last five starts. If she can get into a good early position watch out.
#9 DRY CREEK SHOOTER came first over last out after riding the pocket for only a quarter of a mile. She grinded on the outside and then tired really badly. I expect her to be closer to the pace tonight.
#4 VIRGIN SPECIAL is a class dropper, she could be an interesting play with a better trip and no breaks. She will need a good trip but could get it from mid-pack.
