 PARX    Race 2   6 furlongs   Claiming $5,000 (12:52 ET)

Best Value Play: #5 Kay One (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #3 There Goes Vinny (3/1)

Other Contenders: #2 Blue Light Special (7/2), #4 Game Ball (2/1)

Analysis: There Goes Vinny runs for a good barn and returns to battle after a layoff. Last work was from the gate which shows good intent and his style may help him capture the big check. Blue Light Special is the old pro in the field, drops in class and moves back to the dirt for a solid barn. Game Ball runs for a high percentage barn and comes back after a rest. He looks tough despite being a vet scratch a few weeks ago. Kay One has good early speed and has posted good figures in the past. Possibly a coast to coast run for this one.


PARX   Race 6   5 furlongs Claiming $10,000 2L (2:40 ET)

Best Value Play: #4 Sara Bay (15/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Pop Pop Kiss (4/1)

Other Contenders: #7 Fiery Star (3/1) #9 Katavina (2/1)

Analysis: Pop Pop Kiss runs for Leatherbury, takes a drop and has the speed to wire this bunch. Fiery Star is another with a top level trainer, takes a drop and has plenty of speed. Katavina seems to be back in form and has the back class to do some damage. Sara Bay is a huge mystery. She spent her two year old year in stakes and returned in 2014 as a claimer with a bad seasonal debut. But here workouts look good suddenly and she does run for Aristone. She could be worth a shot.
