Finished capping earlier & here are some plays & my thinking behind them.
Race 1 I like the 5 & 4. Prado has his only mount of the day on #5 Enthral. #4 Dutch Parrot had all kinds of trouble in her last being steadied & missing my less than 2. Asmussen has his go to jock Santana up.
Race 2 I have 2-6-7. #2 Admire is a firster from the good connections of tha Albaugh Family/Dale Romans/Rosario. I femember Romans once saying "I never know what a first timer is going to do." Watch the board on this one; ML is 6-1. #6 Captain Von Trapp just missed in his first try & maybe Asmiussen blames Bridgemohan for getting beat with the chalk; he's off & Santana is on. #7 Midnight Curfew is a also a firster & a sleeper @ 12-1. Like the Minight Lute breeding, Trainer Engelhart is solid & Jose Ortiz takes the mount.
Play is DD 54 with 267
Race 3 #1 Casses Story was claimed from Mark Casse after he won his last race. Wouldn't be surprised to see Casse reclaim this family namesake. #2 loves the distance but rarely gets heavily played. #3 also likes the distance & this will be his 2nd race off the claim by trainer Brett Calhoun. #4 has won 2 in a row & moves up in company. #5 ran 4th to #1 in his last. #6 Trainer Mott takes Franco off & puts up Joe Ortiz; he's been 13-1 in his last 3 races but I don't think that will be the case here. #7 is the Albaugh connection again & he was beaten by #1 in his last as well. #8 has 4 stinkers in a row but it's Pletch/Johnny V; drops in class. #9 is 0 for 8 @ Churchill; #10 has been claimed 3x in a row. He's regularly bet & is owned by trainer Kenneally.
Play is ex/tri key 8/6-7-10
