Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering
Turfway Race 6, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $16,000 (3:35 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Seeking a Sunrise (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #6 Forget That Gal (5/2)
Other Contenders: #3 Pink Leninade (3/1), #7 Courtly Flyer (3/1)
Analysis: Forget That Gal likes artificial surfaces, comes off a freshener, gets blinkers and runs for the slick Tevis McCauley. Good works over in Lexington signal readiness. Pink Leninade ships in from Chicago and runs for a good barn. Very capable of beating these. Courtly Flyer goes for a new barn, ships in from the mountain and turns back to a sprint plus has faced some tough competition. Seeking a Sunrise is part of an uncoupled entry for trainer Rodney Faulkner and has performed well on the artificial surfaces. He has tactical speed and has posted some good speed figures.
Turfway Race 8, 6 ½ furlongs Optional Claiming $20,000 1X (4:33 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Limerick Lady (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Pan Dulce (4/1)
Other Contenders: #6 Prettyhotprincess (6/1) #8 Northern Borealis (5/1)
Analysis: Pan Dulce heads a cast that has faced each other before. Second back after a freshener and would have beaten the bunch had she not raced wide in last. Prettyhotprincess is steady with her speed figures and if she doesn’t win she will surely be knocking on the door. Northern Borealis had a tough trip against some of these in last and if unbothered she can take them on any day. Limerick Lady whipped some of these a couple back and will probably be ignored after a dull performance last out. If you ignore that race you may have a long shot winner.
