Like a Rock


Rock Fall is a layover given his 5-point TER call in today's GP feature over City of Weston, scratched from a tougher Saturday MTO spot. But at 9-5 early line from the Pletcher barn, this sprinter is not likely to produce an inviting win play. Plus, we’re talking about a 4YO with three lifetime starts coming off la layup.

Behind ‘Weston’ is Pomeroy’s Package at 7-2. However, Hot Heir Skier, clustered with 'Weston' and 'Pomeroy's', is another fast returnee at an early line 15-1 and hails from a top layup barn.

We're playing for an upset; exacta boxing all four contenders here, keying the fave 1-2 in all exotics pools, a small win saver on ‘Skier’ and taking him below the top three in all money positions.

For FRA running totals purposes, taking Rock Fall to win with no price restrictions.

Outside Runner Has Inside Track to GP Circle


A look at all the elements on today’s Performance Ratings is pretty straight-forward: Power Alert, breaking from the outside slip in the 5F turf sprint, is a layover and a win bet at any price, given a 7-point rating edge over its closest competitor, Stormy Rush.

Amelia’s Wild Ride and Bold Thunder are clustered immediately below. The play is Power Alert to win and keying the gelding 1-2 in exactas and all super-exotics with his three rivals here, adding Mongolian Saturday on the third and fourth lines in the super-exotics. Australian sprinters are esteemed worldwide; we'll find out more here

Friday’s Featured Ninth at Gulf as Open as It Gets


The quintessential open race, with Catfight Cowgirl, Presto Magic and Asia owning our top performance ratings--separated by a mere point on the Energy Rating scale, with the next cluster of contenders; Hangover Saturday, Katie's Kiss and Knox County Zip also separated by a point--'Knox County' only two points below the top trio.

This looks like an excellent opportunity to take money out of this race; alas we shall see.

If the early line is a guide, which it always is, Catfight Cowgirl (10-1) is a moderate win play and a ‘must use’ in all exotics and super-exotics. Because it’s that open, require 8-1 or greater.

As for the top figure 'Presto', 3-1 would be fair win odds as a potential win play. As always, the late tote quote will tell the tale.

We're making a 2, 5, 7 exacta box; then using 1, 3, 6 beneath to complete the super-exotics for third and fourth.

For the FRA record, we're taking Catfight Cowgirl to win.
