Woodbine Race 2, 6 furlongs $32,000 (1:18 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Bear’s Chill (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Malibu Skyline (2/1)
Other Contenders: #2 Shotinthefog (7/2), #4 Original Cast (8/1)
Analysis: Malibu Skyline will probably control the pace and is in top form. Speed held pretty good Wednesday night so his swiftness makes him doubly dangerous. Shotinthefog looks to have a lot of class for this bunch and even though he has yet to win this year he still rates a strong look. Original Cast goes for a new barn and has been effective at levels higher than this. Bear’s Chill gets Husbands who is making up for lost time after an injury early in the year. Trainer Sid Attard took this one up on the grass and now brings him down low on his preferred surface.
Keeneland Race 4, 6 ½ furlongs Starter $5,000 (2:41 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Evacuation Route (7/1)
Most Likely Winner: #10 Biker Boy (4/1)
Other Contenders: #2 Orientate Express (12/1) #9 Truly Amazing (3/1)
Analysis: Biker Boy comes off an impressive victory for a dozen career wins. Class wise he is in his natural element. Orientate Express runs for the dangerous Larry Rivelli, who ships in from Chicago for his second race after a breather. There is plenty of suspicion with this one. Truly Amazing is an old pro on the artificial surface and enters this race in good form. Evacuation Route has not won on artificial but has been in the cash 70% of the time he has run on the surface. He takes a big class drop here and poses a danger.
