Lone Star Race 4, 6 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (3:59 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Zen’s Way (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #9 Chitaurus (8/5)
Other Contenders: #6 Joedini (3/1), #7 Shraded Edge (5/2)
Analysis: Chitaurus has the early speed and drops to his lowest level ever, plus the benefit of running for Broberg with Berry aboard. Joedini has the tactical speed to get the trip, is in good form and his numbers show him as a consistent runner. Shraded Edge is a stalker in top form, keeps Wade in the saddle and has notched sixteen career wins. Zen’s Way is an improving youngster in this field but he is trained by an old pro and has some early zip.
Lone Star Race 6, 6 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (4:45 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Fine Cognac (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Overspent (7/5)
Other Contenders: #4 Star’s Valentino (6/1) #7 Show Up Jones (7/2)
Analysis: Overspent looks to be very tough in this situation as he drops to get some class relief and keeps Wade in the irons. Star’s Valentino is blessed with early speed, trained by Petalino and is in good form. Show Up Jones drops after posting some good speed figures and is a late running threat. Fine Cognac has a huge win percentage, early speed and now drops after going up for a barn that claimed him.
