Race #6 – The $100,000 Fire Plug – 6 1/2f – 2:56 pm Analysis / #5 – Factor It In / #1 – Savoy / #8 – Pirate Rick

#5 Factor It In hails from the Carlos Mancilla barn with Angel Cruz aboard. Late running son of The Factor and is 7 for 11 ITM over the course. Impressive winner in the Dave’s Friend last out and gets added ground to stalk and pounce today. #1 Savoy is a late running son of Honor Code for Mario Serey and Grant Whitacre in the saddle. The barn wins 28% with non graded stakes and 4 for 6 ITM over the track. Add in a sharp work and he could be ready to come calling down the lane on his way to the winner’s circle. #8 Pirate Rick is a speedy son of Liam’s Map for trainer Lynn Cash. He is looking to make it four in a row shipping in from AQU.

Race #7 – The $100,000 What A Summer – 6f – 3:27 pm Analysis / #2 – Don’tletsweetfoolya / #4 – Swayin to and Fro / #6 – Fille d’ Esprit

#2 Don’tletsweetfoolya hails from the Lacey Gaudet barn making her 2nd off the layoff move. Cuts back in distance and has the services of Jevian Toledo. This daughter of Stay Thirsty is 11 for 14 over the course and sports a solid stalking presence. #4 Swayin to and Fro is seeking three straight for Mario Serey with Grant Whitacre aboard. She stalks just off the leader and is an impressive 6 for 7 ITM at Laurel. #6 Fille d’ Esprit goes to post for John Robb and Xavier Perez. A solid up close stalker who is 13 for 18 ITM over the course. Look for the X Man to keep her in striking distance and set up for a good run to the wire.

The rail is winning at a 22% clip and the rider wins 18% with sprinters. First time Lasix for tis Mike Maker trainee may turn everything around.
