A Star Is Born

One can onlyhope that troday's featured eighth race from the Big A remains on the turf as the ultra competitive field offers arare opportunity to value at fair odds. Any one of six fillies could win this: Settling Seas (7-2), Mystic City (3-1), One Last Dance (10-1), Alluring Power (12-1), Star Torina (5-1) and RaceTuUrga (2-1) It's the second-to-last miss that is really interesting.

Following a Delayed Turf Decline Line two back, the filly came back to show strong early speed on the main track subsequently--run right off her feet in a race that produced a next-out winner from two starters. Bill Mott pushing all the right buttons these days, and obviously has enjoyed great success this year when tapping Lezcano's services.

Taking Star Torina towin at 5-1 or greater and keying her first and second in multiples with those rivals listed here.

The Day Finally Arrives for RailTrip in 2011

As I Recall, Sunnyand Mile, for which this raceis named, reallylike the Big A surface. Hopefully, Rail Trip will,too.

The Rick Dutrow trainee clearly is not the same horse he was last year, but even a scaleddown version issupposed to handle this group. He owns superior performance figures, has two exacta finishes in three starts at 9 furlongs, including a win, and hails fo ran outfit that owns a lofty 8-for-14 record at the current meet.

It's his record at the trip that separateshim from main rival Ron the Greek,who makes his second startfor the Mott barn here.

Taking Rail Trip to win, with no price restrictions.

I Tend to Like Lanerie’s Mount in Churchill Feature

Today’s feature at Churchill Downs is a competitive six-horse affair that looks like a battle between the 5-for-7 distance specialist, Congressional Page (7-2) and the very sharp Tend (2-1).

We’ll take the latter, coming from a race that produced a next out winner from one starter and from a barn that’s won with four of its last 11 entrants and a (4) 2-1-0 slate when using Lanerie recently. Further, his mid-move style and outside slip fit’s the dynamics neatly here.

Taking Tend to win at 2-1 or greater and keying him in multiples with Congressional Page and Cool Bullet beneath the white hot Leparoux.

Running Totals: (964) 299-193-139 Total Dollar Return: $2,063.90 [win selections only]
