40% chance of rain tonight and a Minnesota Balmy 52˚
Bringing my umbrella

RACE 1
$7.5K Claimers • NW2 • F&M • 3yo+ • 1 Mile
5 – Silvera (2/1) giving preference to an Oaklawn shipper. Drops from a $10k claiming to this level and fits well. Her last race was in the slop and whereas we are supposed to get rain tonight, the prognosis is for a meager amount. Trainer Roberto Diodoro (19%) and jockey Orlando Mojica (21% L/10) having a solid start this year, getting 22% winners. This mare has been claimed three times on the last four races, telling us that somebody knows something. Silvera is the lone speed in this race and she’ll have a chance to wire this field.
3 – Memories Galore (10/1) five year old mare is 9:4-1-2 at Canterbury. She’ll make a good exotics play.
1 – Princess O’prado (5/2) shippers from TuP have not been a great proposition thus far; however, she has excellent numbers and Francisco Arrieta (28% L/10) on top.

RACE 2
$25K MCL • F&M •3yo+ •5.5 Furlongs
6 – Vivacitas (6/5) there’s a good reason this filly is going to go off on short odds – she’s the only runner here that has shown life. Trainer Schnell and Jockey Butler breezin’ along at 33% winners.

RACE 3
$5K Claimers • 3yo+ NW2 • 1 Mile, 70 Yards
5 – Money Broker (3/1) Tampa shipper has faced better and gets a much-needed cutback in distance tonight. Jockey Elvin Gonzalez is, in the words of Bill Shakespeare, “hot as Perseus,” clipping along at 33% the last ten days.
1 – Count Hu (2/1) another TuP shipper with Arrieta in the irons

RACE 4
4 – Jimbo’s Biz
(5/2)

RACE 5
7 – Shabam
(8/1)
3 – Giving Tree (3/1)
4 – Sharon’s Temper (5/2)
Playing an exacta box on these three & trifecta: 4-1/4-1-7/3, 4-1/3/4-1-7, 3/4-1/4-1/7

RACE 6
1 – Hidden Reward
(9/5)

RACE 7
2 - Sidasta
(3/1)

(6/1)
