Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering 

Lone Star  Race 2 (3:03 ET)  5 1/2 Furlongs  

Claiming $5,000

Best Value Play: # 4 Epic Match (7/2)

Most Likely Winner: #6 City Named Glory (2/1)

Other Contenders: # 5 Taste Big (3/1), #7 Jazz Party (5/2)

Analysis: City Named Glory makes his second start after a rest for a barn that strikes often with its first time claims. Jazz Party is an old foe of City Named Glory and beat him last out at Lone Star. Taste Big may not have won in a while but he sports four consecutive third place finishes showing his consistency. Epic Match may not be bet as much as the morning line suggest because of his last pair of finishes, but he has seen tougher company at Remington, runs well at Lone Star and fired a bullet in his last work.   


PARX   Race 9  (4:01 ET) 7 Furlongs  Claiming $7,500

Best Value Play: # 4 Dapper Devil (15/1)

Most Likely Winner: # 6 Hill Crossing (3/1)

Other Contenders: # 1 He Belongs (9/2), # 9 Hitters Count (2/1)

Analysis: Hill Crossing has won a dozen races, has the tactical speed and will probably get a dream trip. He Belongs may have been winless last year but was racing in much tougher company. Hitters Count will probably sit behind Hill Crossing and follow that one around before trying to best the competition in the stretch. Dapper Devil has had a productive career and has the back class to handle these. His work at Monmouth last week is very appealing.
