Picks for 8, 2019:

Delaware Race 1
1-King Nekia
appears where his Queen made the dough on Monday. This one arrives in town off a very good second last out at Tampa. He has run two races in his career that are better than anyone else in this race so the competition should come from the first time starters, especially 6-Smart Time. He is regally bred and the dam gets runners. Connections are solid and the works are in line with first time success. 2-Wild Drive showed speed and faded in his only outing and got claimed. Goes to a high percentage operation and should improve.
$10 W/P/S 1-King Nekia
$2 Exacta box 1,2,6
$1 Trifecta box 1,2,6

Delaware Race 5
Trainer Jamie Ness and jockey Trevor McCarthy combine at 32%. Obviously, Ness was happy this race showed up on a day that McCarthy would be in Delaware (aka a dark day in Maryland). 4-Etruscan stands over this field based on recent speed figures. 2-Major Attitude looks to be the greatest risk to the one above and has a win over this strip. He gets another leading Maryland jockey to make the drive up I-95 for the day. 6-Final Prospect brings a heaping helping of back class to the race as he is appearing at his lowest level EVER.
$10 W/P/S 4-Estruscan
$2 Exacta box 2,4,6
$1 Trifecta box 2,4,6

Mick’s Quickie

Delaware Race 6
2-Minit to Stardom
is Louisiana through and through. Hope she bring the crawfish to the winner’s circle. Shouldn’t Kendrick Carmouche ride this one? He is the Louisiana Kid after all.
