Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering
Presque Isle, Race 4, 6 Furlongs Claiming $5,000 (6:40 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Extra Exclusive (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Rockin Rockstar (3/1)
Other Contenders: #9 El Gran Sol (4/1), #7 Sculptor (7/2)
Analysis: Rockin Rockstar gets top jock Scott Spieth and ships in for battle after a freshening. A winner 9 times on artificial surfaces makes him the obvious choice. El Gran Sol continues to seek class relief and may find it here with a big reduction in price. Sculptor has been a little camera shy but is still capable, and a great candidate for the exotics. Extra Exclusive is an old pro that still produces consistent speed numbers. Hard to ignore his 14 wins.
Presque Isle Race 5, 6 1/2 Furlongs Claiming $7,500 3L (7:05 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Sydneys Harley Boy (12/1)
Most Likely Winner: # 8 Mr. Argument (7/2)
Other Contenders: #6 My Luca (5/1), #7 Prayer Meeting (3/1)
Analysis: Mr. Argument has enough back class and tactical speed to claim the top prize. My Luca is a turf runner turning back to a sprint and trying the all weather surface. With the right pace he could pick up the pieces late. Prayer Meeting has what it takes to win this one if he can get a clean trip. Sydneys Harley Boy is on a huge drop from his past few races and that makes him a long shot suspect.
