Give’m the Hammer


Tough one yesterday; turning the page. In today's featured 9th race going 1-1/16 miles on the turf is a layover for Hammers Terror (7-2) if you trust our Energy Ratings which, of course, we do.

He was a top figure winner of his last and a repeat of that effort will spell repeat here. We like the confident class rise and the fact trainer Brian Lynch is 38% efficient with runners seeking to repeat.

Julien takes the return call and we also like the idea that this recent top-figure front-running winner did it in his GP debut and also has been successful from off the pace, albeit at a shorter distance.

Taking Hammers Terror to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with AE Key to Power (15-1), third in that same race, and Just Foolin Around (15-1), also coming off a fast-figure score vs. weaker in his GP return.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1670

Amount Wagered: $3,340 [to win only]

Another Saturday Nite and I Need a Winner…


Today's Gulfstream feature is a tough one, something you'd expect from optional/claiming allowances types sprinting 5f on turf. Ergo, we're going for the gusto.

It's Saturday Nite (12-1) is not as accomplished as some of her rivals, then again not many in this group can claim they never lost at this trip, on this course, winning both her lifetime starts.

Making her third start off a lengthy layup, her last over the deeper Tampa course should tighten her sufficiently for this and her return to GP should wake her up sufficiently to possibly upset the group.

Taking It's Saturday Nite to win at 8-1 or greater and key-boxing her in multiple pools with solid favorite Indian Splendor (3-1), the sharp Zamquick (9-2), and the recently claimed Kiama (6-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1669

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 500-325

Amount Wagered: $3,338 [to win only]

I Like Wolfson’s Filly


Easy for me to say, since the talented Floridian has five of the 12 females entered in today's featured Miami Shores for which the returning, classy Wedding Toast (2-1) is a deserving favorite, especially with McLaughlin at the controls of a horse returning from a lengthy layoff; profitable in that scenario and with his stakes runners.

But we'll take whatever value is offered on Ol Donyo (9-2), cycling back to her best Energy Rating three starts back at today's trip, her second in three tries at the 7-furlong distance and only start on this surface. A tactical filly, Johnny V. should have close-up and saving ground until he's ready to pull the trigger. The filly is exiting the G3 Sugar Swirl which has produced a winner from a lone starter to return.

Taking Ol Donyo to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding Best Behavior (5-1), Quiet Hour (8-1) and Flores Island (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1668

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 500-325

Amount Wagered: $3,336 [to win only]
