Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering
Woodbine Race 7, 6 furlongs $12,500 (3:52 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Blushing Brat (20/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Daniel Be Good (9/2)
Other Contenders: #9 Royal Greatness (7/2), #11 Guitar Solo (5/1)
Analysis: Daniel Be Good will be shooting for a dozen career victories in this one. If he is off to a good start then they may not catch him. Royal Greatness is another tough campaigner that is in top form and should settle off the pace. Guitar Solo will be the early speed challenge to Daniel Be Good and could prove to be the better on the front. Blushing Brat runs for a low percentage barn but has come from off the pace against Daniel and Greatness to be narrowly beaten in the past. It could set up for the gelding.
Keeneland Race 10, 6 furlongs $25,000 (6:02 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Do Dat Blues (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: #9 Ballistic Sue (8/5)
Other Contenders: #5 Brilliant Autumn (7/2) #11 Guava Girl (5/1)
Analysis: Ballistic Sue was claimed for today’s tag at Saratoga by Mike Maker and owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey. This is a pattern that cannot be ignored. Brilliant Autumn is first time back after a freshener, takes a class drop and zipped a hot work the other day. Guava Girl runs for the historically dangerous Wayne Catalano. Loves the polytrack and takes a dip on the claiming scale. Do Dat Blues comes from a good barn and ran respectable in the Spring at Keeneland. On a good day she fits well in here and she almost has the highest bankroll in the field, second only to Ballistic Sure.
