Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering
PARX Race 5, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $10,000 (2:13 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Six Peaces (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Drogo (3/1)
Other Contenders: #5 Diski Dance (2/1), #7 True Heaven (7/2)
Analysis: Drogo has been running well the last few months and has been claimed several times, which is probably a testament to his soundness. Diski Dance comes back for a good barn after a freshener and takes a class drop that could be viewed as suspicious. Back class says he can. True Heaven has an excellent record and takes a class drop back to where he last won. Six Peaces runs for a new barn after being claimed and in his second race after a rest. Ran well at PARX and Monmouth at higher levels.
PARX Race 6, 6 furlongs Claiming $7,500 4L (2:40 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Deighan (9/2)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Bren’s Friend (7/2)
Other Contenders: #2 Darn That Trip (5/2) #4 The Money Room (4/1)
Analysis: Bren’s Friend has few visits to the photographer but trying to beat her is a risky proposition. A look at her record and it is hard to imagine her missing a check. Darn That Trip looks to be the controlling speed and if she goes slow enough early she could last. The Money Rook has raced competitively with others in here and a winning effort would not be a surprise. Deighan will probably challenge for the front and runs for a new barn. The Michael Pino barn does well with everything, especially horses it just claimed.
