Tampa Bay Downs – Race 8 – #9 SKRADLIN
Arnuad Delacour 38% Winners with a horse first time in their barn, that number jumps to 44% off the layoff. Centeno in the irons as this one ships from Santa Anita.
Santa Anita – Race 3 – #4 FLY FAR AWAY
Vladimir Cerin put 3 of his first 4 starters in the winners circle at this meet. Cerin calls on Prat & cuts this mare back to to 6F where she posted a field best 71 Beyer back in June.
Santa Anita – Race 4 – #2 TOWARDS THE LEFT
This horse takes the plunge from MDSPWT to MCL – Love the connections of Roman/D’Amato to get this 4YO to graduate.
Fair Grounds – Race 8 – #8 TRAPPEZOID
Troubled in his Last 2 Starts down in the Bluegrass State. Drops back to 6 Panels where he scored his only 2 wins of career. Mena/Calhoun combo gets this horse well spotted on the outside.
Golden Gate – Race 6 – #7 GILDED
4 Year Old Philly owns the fields best top figure 2 back on this GG Turf Course. Let’s throw away the last race as her saddle slipped & she was eased. 6 of 10 ITM for 2017 when you toss that last race. Good bounce back spot.
