RT picks the Monday card at Mahoning Valley after 3 winners on Sunday
Mahoning Valley 12.14.20
Low 40’s and partly sunny
Profitable day yesterday with three wins, two places, two shows and one out of the money.
Much to my chagrin, my computer took a dump and I lost what was written, so this will be briefer than normal.
I handicapped the three allowance races and will summarize them below
Trying to find a track that I follow which will be dry and fast may prove daunting this week with a nor’easter heading that way.

Race 2 - $25K Optional Claimer N3X
3↑ Ohio bred fillies and mares going six furlongs
I landed on #2 Here Comes Jigs (3/1). Her best races have come at Mahoning on a fast surface and with a 10:5-2-2 for $132K here, along with a 7:4-1-0 for $96K at the distance, this granddaughter of Giant’s Causeway gets the green light.
Race 3 - $29K Allowance N1X
3↑ fillies and mares going one mile, seventy yards.
I took Aiken Apple (10/1) due to her route win to break her maiden three back. This is her third allowance race since and the class relief will help greatly.
Race 6 - $25K Allowance C
3↑ going six furlongs
#4 Flatter Me Please (3/1) gets all our best numbers, including $16K per attempt at MVR. In her last, the $200K Steel Valley Sprint Stakes, she got off a step slow, hustled up to press the leader, and finished well giving a game effort for place. That was on a muddy track and her best races are on fast tracks, going 6:3-2-0 for $49K
Race 1 – Easy Eyes should get a stalking trip to score
Race 4 – Sweetalkingjustice
Race 5 – Saffron Girl
Race 7 – Vinny Boy
Race 8 – Biscuits And Grits
