USTA Play of the Day

by Michael Carter

Hoosier Park Racing and Casino Race 10 (Trifecta)
Date: 8/8/2018 Carryover: $0  Guarantee: $20,000

Ticket: 3,8,9/3,4,8,9/ALL – Cost: $36.00 (.50 base)

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

Breakdown:

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.
