PARX Race 2 (12:52 ET) 7 Furlongs
Claiming $10,000 – 3L
Best Value Play: # 6 Lookingatlangfhur (12/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Slinger (4/1)
Other Contenders: # 1 Nofinancingneeded (2/1), # 3 Redhotlion (7/2)
Analysis: Slinger has posted good numbers in the past and has changed barns to a unit successful with its claims. Nofinancingneeded is coming off a huge win and has the back class to make a trip to the Winner’s Circle. Redhotlion may be a little weak on the class side but is dangerous in here because of his speed. Lookingatlangfhur takes a drop and looks to be in a position for a perfect trip, and may be tougher if the track is wet.
Churchill Race 2 (1:16 ET) 6 ½ Furlongs
Claiming $8,000 – 3L
Best Value Play: # 3 E. Grace (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: # 5 La Stupenda (5/2)
Other Contenders: # 6 Simple (3/1), # 2 Another Trick (3/1)
Analysis: La Stupenda takes a subtle drop in class after slugging it out against tougher her entire live. Moisture in the track will be on her side. Simple comes off the shelf and in from Arkansas with a good running style. Another Trick drops and comes back to the site of her maiden victory. E. Grace is hard to figure but her recent form and a couple of her past races throw up red flags.
