Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering
PARX Race 6, 7 furlongs Claiming $10,000 3L (2:40 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Deighan (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Full Sail Ahead (2/1)
Other Contenders: #4 Racing Wildly (3/1), #6 Gift Wrap (9/2)
Analysis: Full Sail Ahead is the better part of an entry and is in top form looking for a third consecutive win, posting impressive numbers in her last pair of races. Racing Wildly is a consistent mare that fits this level well. Gift Wrap had a freshener and runs for a new barn. May be a touch picture shy but loves to get a check. Deighan runs for the successful Servis barn, ships in from Monmouth, and is accustomed to facing tougher.
Keeneland Race 4, 6 furlongs Claiming $50,000 (2:41 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Gentleman Jackson (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Mish Mosh (4/1)
Other Contenders: #4 Great Attack (3/1) #8 Gold Element (5/1)
Analysis: Mish Mosh looks to be the controlling speed and they will have to catch him. The only question is class. Great Attack, a former Graded Stakes runner, takes a suspicious drop. On the other hand he is running for Wesley Ward and that almost always means the guy is ready to roll. Gold Element could get the perfect trip from the outside and stalking others seems to be his calling. Gentleman Jackson runs for the King of Canadian racing and takes a class hike after a layoff with most of his prep work coming on Florida. Looks like Casse has a plan.
