Canterbury Race 5 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $6,250 3L (3:42 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Fire Game (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: #9 Sweet Elation (7/2)
Other Contenders: #3 Maggie’s Guy (9/2), #4 Totee (4/1)
Analysis: Sweet Elation makes his second start after a two year rest but looks like he can handle these with his best shot. Maggie’s Guy won her last and goes up in class but seems to be a new horse after vacating the artificial surfaces-hot jock and trainer to boot. Totee is another who came back after a two year vacation and has scored twice since. He is dangerous with his speed. Fire Game is tough to figure but if the price is right it may be worth a few bucks. He now runs for trainer Chuck Turco who is very good, especially with his first time representatives.
Canterbury Race 7 6 furlongs Optional $25,000 (4:41 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Sharp A (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Janis’s Joy (7/2)
Other Contenders: #3 Somerset Swinger (9/2) #5 Spice Swirl (5/2)
Analysis: Janis’s Joy has faced much tougher in New Orleans and she ran big in her first effort at Canterbury. Somerset Swinger loves Canterbury and is clearly an off the pace threat. Spice Swirl has won 13 of 33 and even though she has done her damage in Nebraska she has faced the best they have. Sharp A gets an old pro in the irons and has faced open company in Chicago forever. With her tactical speed she can get position and pounce on her foes.
