Friday Night Australian Racing, June 9th, 2017

Race 1C Australia (Flemington) Friday, June 9, 2017.  EUGENE GORMAN HCP ($100K) 9:45pm EDT (8:45pm CDT, 6:45pm PDT) W, P, S, Ex, Qu, Tri, Super 2yo OPEN.  5 1/2 furlongs, Apprentices Can Claim.  Picks:  10-3-2

#10 SIA (5/1 ML) won her debut for the red-hot Lindsay Park connections, and is the first foal for the crack distaffer Hips Don’t Lie (Stravinsky).  Expecting good things with the wide draw.  #3 Counterplay (7/1 ML) is a very successful racehorse, but draws the hated rail.  Hopefully she can find cover and move at the right time.  #2 Lone Eagle (2/1 ML) ran a big speed figure at Sandown Lakeside, but he may find Flemington horses to be quite a bit tougher.


Race 3C Australia (Flemington) Friday, June 9, 2017.  BRUCE GADSDEN HCP ($100K) 10:50pm EDT (9:50pm CDT, 7:50pm PDT) W, P, S, Ex, Qu, Tri, Super, Pick 3 (3C, 4C, 5C) OPEN.  5 furlongs, Apprentices Can Claim.  Picks: 6-4-2

#6 ROUGH JUSTICE (7/1 ML) and #4 Military Reign (9/2 ML) appear to be the controlling speeds, especially important at the 5 furlong distance at Flemington.  At least one horse will be in the exacta.  #2 Santa Ana Lane (5/1 ML) owns the best speed figures.
