Turfway Race 2 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (6:44 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Pure Delight (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Sonny Short Stack (5/2)
Other Contenders: #5 Jessica’s Reason (9/2), #8 Our Little Daisy (3/1)
Analysis: Sonny Short Stack takes a drop and has the early zip to get control and get to the wire. Jessica’s Reason has some back class and improvement should be expected after she changed barns less than a month ago. Our Little Daisy runs for a high percentage barn with her stalking style and loves the artificial surface. Pure Delight has run well at Turfway in the past and should improve in her second race after a freshener.
Turfway Race 3 5 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (7:13 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Hidden Heat (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Weekend Wish (4/5)
Other Contenders: #4 Olympio’s Gal (6/1) #5 Penny’s Court (5/1)
Analysis: Weekend Wish should easily win-on paper. The long layoff and huge drop in class does cause concerns. Olympio’s Gal has a good resume, loves artificial surfaces and returns to battle after a freshening. Penny’s Court goes for her tenth career win and has the early speed to control the race. Hidden Heat scored her last win at Turfway and has been training forwardly since given a rest.
