 PARX    Race 1,   7 furlongs Claiming $16,000 (12:52 ET)

 Best Value Play: #2 Billy One Lite (6/1)

 Most Likely Winner: #1 Six Flings (4/1)

 Other Contenders: #3 Toboggan Slide (2/1), #6 Blame the Jockey (7/2)

 Analysis: Six Flings looks to have everything going his way and unless the rail draw works against him the gelding should notch a victory. Toboggan Slide could turn out to be the favorite despite his sketchy life the last two years. A run like his at Keeneland in April makes him tough. Blame the Jockey is as tough as they come and he now resides in the high percentage barn of Phil Aristone. Billy One Lite has changed barns frequently this year and that usually means somebody sees something. A sudden return to days gone by make Billy a winner.


Monmouth  Race 8,   6 furlongs  Optional Claiming $50,000 2L (4:27 ET)

 Best Value Play: #2 Halley’s Star (5/1)

 Most Likely Winner: #4 Lucky Liberty (4/1)

 Other Contenders: #7 Regal Joanne (4/1) #8 Yes Im Sweet (3/1)

 Analysis: Lucky Liberty gets the nod and jockey Jersey Joe in a competitive heat along the shore. It seems like Lucky Liberty is the most dependable in a tough field. Regal Joanne ships in after a layoff for Steve Asmussen and that usually means trouble for the locals. Yes Im Sweet has the tactical speed and gets a good draw on the outside of the field. Halley’s Star shows up after battles in Delaware, Maryland and New York. She runs for a good shipping trainer and she traded punches with some real tough ones this year.
