Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Lone Star    Race 1,    6 furlongs Claiming $4,000 (2:35 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Switchen Er Up (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Esscalator (8/5)
Other Contenders: #3 Way too Naughty (2/1), #5 Long Gone Woman (5/1)

Analysis: Esscalator brings his speed from Houston, a class drop and one must presume she is ready since she runs for Asmussen. Way too Naughty has a good win percentage, drops in class and posted a recent smokin’ workout. Long Gone Woman is the probably pace setter and has some back class. If she is ready and can shake the other speed she can win it. Switchen Er Up fits with these and is a very consistent performer. Getting to the Winner’s Circle may be tough but it is hard to overlook her ability to earn a paycheck.

Lone Star    Race 4,     7 furlongs Optional $18,000 (3:59 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Sparta Magic (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #6 Smarty Party (5/2)
Other Contenders: #1 Honor Lisabeth (3/1) #2 Mrs. Asher (7/2)

Analysis: Smarty Party runs second time off the claim for Broberg, which means trouble for the others, plus, her back class doesn’t hurt. Honor Lisabeth ships in from Houston, is always bet and her last pair of works say she is ready. Mrs. Asher was claimed in her last after gradually dropping class. She can run on the lead or sit off the pace. Sparta Magic returns after a freshener and turns back to one turn. With the right trip she can have her picture taken.
