The 8th at Lone Star Park, a $39K Allowance race for 3yo+ fillies and mares on the turf going a mile — post Time is 6:15pm EDT
My well wishes and thoughts are with you today, Luis Quinones. That spill you took last night was a nasty one and on behalf of the readership of this publication, and the horse racing nation, we wish you a speedy and healthy recovery.
The bank is close to par with yesterdays loss. $505.00 bet, $511.50 returned for a 0.64% roi
Today is the 8th at Lone Star Park, a $39K Allowance race for 3yo+ fillies and mares on the turf going a mile
Post Time is 6:15pm EDT.
The weather is a hot and sunny 91°.
#7 Cowgirls Like Us (4/1) is coming off a win of almost nine lengths and upon further notice, it was in the slop. Now, good mud runner make good turf runner, however, if you are riding a horse and the leader starts to run away from you, in the sloppy, nasty mess, would you want to near it and keep getting mud kicked all over you or would you let it go and live to fight another race? I submit the latter
#2 Quebec (2/1) gets Equibase/SmartCap best overall speed, best overall class and best last. Jockey David Cabrera, who nailed three wins yesterday, is in the irons. The only knock on this daughter of Into Mischief is the trainer, Joe Sharp, is just 4% bringing back horses after 2-6 months. Her last workout does signify she’s ready, going 5f in 1:01. She has best average money this year with $30.5K per race and $11.1 per in her lifetime.
#8 Classy Act (7/2) has our second best overall class and speed, second best last race and best cumulative last two races. She’ll be stretching out for the first time since last fall and with a new rider, Lindey Wade, that is 0-4 in routes and 0-2 in turf this far, I’ll pass.
#4 Terra’s Angel (8/1) is an interesting sort – trainer Terry Eoff is 25% on turf and she has a 9:3-2-1 turf record for $16.6K per attempt, the best of this field. Certainly an exotic choice.
#5 Curlin’s Journey (8/1) has out third best overall speed and class and $10K per race on turf. Look for her to go to the lead and perhaps hit the board.
#3 Poster Girl (10/1) has team Asmussen/Elliott and whereas her numbers are not nearly as impressive as some of these, you can never count these two out.
I am going $20 to win on #2 Quebec. The 1/16th of a mile cutback and the jockey switch will “get er’ dun” as they say in Meen Uh Soda.
