The ninth is a $20.9K allowance for 3yo+ girls who are NWx or NW2. It is a short sprint and five and one half furlongs. Post time is 6:15 pm EDT.
The bad news – yesterday, my horse got stuck on a dead rail and fired late to not get a piece. $209 bet, $191.70 returned. -8.28% roi
The good news - Golden Gate and Charles Town will have racing on Thursday and Churchill will on Saturday. Ruidoso is to begin on May 22nd, Mountaineer on May 31st and Indiana Grand is pointing to mid-June.
Today is Will Rogers Downs, race 9. It is raining there as I write this and is forecasted to be at first post, then taper off.

Using Equibase speed and class numbers, SmartCap has uncovered #2 Sandy Sangria (6/1) with the best overall class and speed. This Euroears filly is 2-2 at WRD, is coming off an impressive win against state breds on April 13th and did that in 1:05.3, the best of this group. She also has best last two and three back. #12 Always Inthe Munny (3/1) has best last, near best overall class and near best overall speed. The name is fitting as she is 3:1-1-1 and comes into this race off a 2.5 month layoff and has two recent bullet works at 5f in :59.5 and :59.1 respectively. If a sloppy track, the outside post will play to her pressing style and should be live down the stretch. #6 Sweet Carolina (4/1) has near best last, class and overall speed. She ships from Sunland and if you have read this from me before, you will know that horses shipping from there fare poorly at WRD. Pass. #10 Ballet On Ice (12/1) is 1-1 lifetime, has second best class speed and last races, yet posted a 71 Equibase number on the turf at Houston. It is common lore that good mudders equal good turf horses and often the reverse is true. Second time starters improve normally off their first race and with the added second Lasix. She just clipped a 3f workout from the gate in :36 flat. An improvement off the 71 will be enough to get this Drosselmeyer filly to the finish line first.
My pick: #10 Ballet on Ice to w/p.
