Looks to be a beautiful day tomorrow and I am playing some local price shots vs California shippers particularly Baffert’s two odds on favs in the features as I believe the break in training caused by the poor track conditions plus training over a bad track period the last month will play a part. Not to mention racing a week later than originally scheduled for many of them and the unplanned ship to Arkansas. I may get blasted by the fast and classy Cal crop as they really tower over these local horses figure and class wise but I stand to make a few nice scores tomorrow if I am on to something. I did include some Cal shippers in some multi race wagers especially in both divisions of the Rebel since i have prices in most legs. Risking around $850 depending on scratches tomrorow.
Race 1 and early Pick 4 #4 Ludington 8-1ml ran a credible speed and mild fade race in his debut exactly one month ago. Morse is ice cold but is too good of trainer to discount and he may heat up today with some prices. Steady works since last race for this homebred son of up and coming sire Creative Cause. $20 Win and place $.50 pk 4 1,2,4,6,8/1,3,6,9,10/2/4,5,6 Cost $37.50
Race 2 #10 Tonedaddy 9/2 ml gets my money in this pretty cool 1 and ½ marathon starter allowance race. Distance won’t be a problem and should settle in a perfect stalking trip all the way twice around. Horse should be super fit after going slightly shorter on March 7. $20 Win and place
Race 3 #2 Proverb 6-1ml is my best bet of the day and a single in my early pick 4. Came back and raced ok in 3yr old debut Feb 9 but put in a serious work Sunday. I look for a big improvement and stalk and pounce trip with Rosario on board. $50 Win and place
Race 4 #6 All Bizness 10-1ml stretches out and faces some well-meant 3 yr olds in this AOC 62.5k route. Looks like a real race horse and won’t be bet but if he improves in third career start like he did last out then watch out. Could be any type. $20 Win and place
