by: Ed Meyer


Race#4 – The $100,000 Plenty of Grace – 1 mile on the turf – 2:56 pm Analysis / #6 – Technical Analysis / #5 Flower Point / #3 -Plum Ali

#6 – Technical Analysis is a speedy filly from the Chad Brown barn with Dylan Davis aboard. She is coming off a 6 month layoff and has one start and a win over the course. She drops in class today and has been working a regular schedule at Payson Park. Her past efforts have shown she can fire fresh off the bench. #5 Flower Point hails from the Shug McGaughey barn with Jose Lezcano in the irons. She comes in off a four month break and can launch a strong late bid. #3 Plum Ali is a late running daughter of First Samurai for Christophe Clement and Manny Franco in the saddle. She had a 5 month break and sports a bullet work to show her readiness.


Laurel Park

Race#6 – The $100,000 Weber City – 1 1/16 miles dirt – 3:25 pm Analysis / #5 – Luna Bella / #2 – Khuluq / #4 – Click to Confirm

#5 Luna Bella is a solid stalking filly for Hamilton Smith with Denis Araujo in the saddle. They start very close to the turn when they break and her style should fit nicely laying just off the lead and moving down the backstretch. She is looking for her 5th straight win and is 6 for 7 ITM at Laurel. #2 Khuluq is a speedy daughter of Bernardini and hails from the Chad Brown barn with Feargal Lynch in the irons. She just broke her maiden at AQU and ships down to take the next step up. #4 Click to Confirm is a stalker exiting off a win. She is 8 for 10 ITM over the course with Angel Cruz in the driver’s seat.


Race#9 – The $125,000 Federico Tesio – 1 1/8 miles dirt – 5:02 pm Analysis / #4 – Joe / #2 – Shake Em Loose / #5 – South Street

#4  Joe is a stalker from the Michael Trombetta barn with Victor Carrasco in the saddle. He is 4 for 4 ITM over the course and was beaten chalk last out in the Private Terms. This is 2nd off the layoff move and should improve with a sharp workout coming into the race. #2 Shake Em Loose is a long range closer seeking his 3rd straight win. The barn wins 21% with route runners and 20% winning his last race for the Rodolfo Sanchez Salomon barn. His dam Cash No Credit has 10 starters with 9 winners to her credit. Look for a strong late bid down the lane. #5 South Street is a closer from the Bill Mott barn who just broke his maiden. Horacio Karamanos has the call and ships in from AQU off a nice maiden win. He’s been off 51 days and moves up in class. Could be the perfect runner to complete exotics.
