Lone Star Race 5 6 furlongs Claiming $4,000 (9:27 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Kogi (20/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Unbridled Eltempo (8/5)
Other Contenders: #2 Peeta (5/2), #3 Betcho (3/1)
Analysis: Unbridled Eltempo returns in a couple of weeks after running a big race at this level. This ten time winner looks ready and has solid connections. Peeta comes back second race after claim, a specialty of his trainer and drops in class in the process. Betcho ran well last time with the top choice. An identical effort could take him to the track photographer. Kogi will probably be a huge longshot but you can’t help but wonder why he gets Cabrera in the irons after showing much more speed last time.
Lone Star Race 7 One Mile Claiming $6,250 (10:23 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Divided Nation (12/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 American Guest (9/5)
Other Contenders: #2 Heckofahit (8/5) #7 Village Jazz (5/1)
Analysis: American Guest deserves to be the top choice despite a poor effort in last. Cabrera is aboard will probably means the gelding is fine. Heckofahit has got questions but he is rested, ships in and drops in class. Village Jazz looks to fit well in here with his tactical speed, and a class drop only helps his situation. Divided Nation has looked terrible in his last few, but consider how good a trainer he has, and the veteran jock stays aboard, plus all of a sudden we have a new beast in morning workouts.
