Hawthorne Race 7, 6 furlongs Optional $12,500 (5:48 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Baba Lucy (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #6 Uptown Babe (5/2)
Other Contenders: #1 Annie Bellum (9/2), #2 Silky Sami (2/1)
Analysis: Uptown Babe comes back after a rest for the hot Brueggemann barn and has the credentials of a winner. Annie Bellum is in top form and may wire the field as she did last out. Silky Sami was a beaten favorite in her last, loves Hawthorne and has 11 career victories. Baba Lucy has won 8 times and when she is on she is really tough. Today could be the day.
Hawthorne Race 8, 6 furlongs Allowance 1X (6:18 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Richard’s Tune (9/2)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Right Now Richie (5/2)
Other Contenders: #1 Pale Hose (7/2) #2 Vbreeze (4/1)
Analysis: Right Now Richie gets a good post for his tactical speed, keeps his usual rider, and comes back after some time off with useful works. Pale Hose has blistering early speed and has faced open company many times-sounds like a recipe for victory. Vbreeze comes up with a big race on occasions and his last effort proved he is good form. Richard’s Tune has good tactical speed, ran in open company in his last 7 races, plus he is coming back after a layoff with impressive works including a pair of bullets.
