Churchill Race 2, 6 furlongs Claiming $8,000 (1:16 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Brooks Beach (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Emmy Rules (9/5)
Other Contenders: #7 Little Face (7/2), #8 Sunrise Ridge (9/2)
Analysis: Emmy Rules should rule the roost in this one. Good speed, in top form and handled by a very good trainer. Little Face turns back and takes a drop in price. A scorching hot work a week ago says she is ready. Sunrise Ridge now runs for an old pro in Greg Foley after he claimed her last time and he puts his high percentage rider on for the trip. Brooks Beach could go unnoticed since she finished behind Emmy Rules last out, but don’t be fooled by that. She is definitely capable of the upset today.
Woodbine Race 7 6 furlongs Allowance 1X (3:50 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Karida (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Starship Universe (2/1)
Other Contenders: #1 Painted Poney (4/1) #4 That’s Our Princess (3/1)
Analysis: Starship Universe scratched out of a turf route at this level Saturday and it looks like trainer Nick Gonzalez saw a better opportunity as this Mineshaft filly drops from graded company. Painted Poney showed her talent in her maiden victory and it would be no surprise of this well bred filly wins again. That’s Our Princess ran well in a very hot race last time and looks to be poised for a good effort. Karida runs for Canada’s top trainer, has a versatile running style and has mixed it up well with some of these in the past.
