By Dave Brower, Friday June 26, Race 1 Review
1 EXPLOSIVE – Seemed to be going well up until the shut-down. Came back with a tough-trip, slowish qualifier up at
Goshen, so I do have my doubts whether he can be fully primed and ready. Will have to prove me wrong to win.
2 MAX VOLO – I guess this is the spot for Max! He actually was pretty good against that better bunch last time and he
gets to drop again. I know that one win only this year kind of sticks out, but he should beat these. No excuses. Trainer:
Finally gets a class where he belongs. Been racing well in some very tough spots.
3 WARRAWEE SHIPSHAPE – Only got one start in this year back in March and it wasn’t a very good one. The comeback
qualifier at Gaitway was actually better than the race. Can he possibly be ready? I see who gets to drive. Good combo!
4 BILLIE BLUE – Huff had two in that race last week and they both looked short. Don’t hold that against the horse.
Should be a lot closer to full readiness with that start under her belt. It’s also a drop. Gives Max a run for the money?
5 CREDIT FRAUD – Trying to turn things around for Eric A and will eventually get there. This slight drop is a step in the
right direction. I like the midpack post. Not sure she’s ready to blast out, but might be soon. Watch closely.
6 VECTOR – When you claim one, and then lay the horse off for months, that’s not usually a good sign. In addition we’ve
got a new barn involved now. Cano has done well with some horses sent east by Betts. Let’s take a good, long look.
7 ROYALE ELITE – I’ll keep this one on the longshot list for now. Drew another rough post. Lacks speed. Have to pass.
8 FRIEND OF NATURE S – Had this fella drawn a better post, I could probably make a much stronger case. I really like
his finish for Casper last week. But, we get a new driver tonight and a terrible starting slot. Has to find way into it.
Trainer: Happy with his first try! Didn’t get in for a couple weeks before that. Will be a little sharper this week.
9 LION SAFARI AS – Shows one even-looking qualifier since February, so that’s a problem. So far, the barn has had a few
ready, like Guardian Angel As. This gelding faced better back then. I do wonder about his early speed, though.
10 THISISSHE – Definitely looking like the big longshot. Especially from the dreaded post 10.

RACE 2 Review
1 THUNDRA – You had to be VERY impressed by this filly in her Big M debut. And don’t forget, it was just third lifetime
start. Gave the big fave (#5) a solid tussle. Will benefit from that experience. Race should set up the same way.
2 DUCK N ROLL – Didn’t look all that primed and ready for leg one. Comes back in same spot as the faves, so I would
need to see a lot more before I could endorse. Best asset here is the post.
3 KELLY’S CHAMP – Had just enough late pace from a tough spot to warrant an extra look here. No surprise that she
needed a race and this barn usually improves them with each appearance. We’re going to see more form Kelly here.
4 BIGFORHERBRITCHES – Gets a touch of post relief for her second start of the year. Needs it. Not quite as good.
5 ODDS ON SARASOTA – I took a shot against her last week and she battled gamely to dig in and hold #1 at bay. It was
a strong, bounce-back kind of effort. Looking at this same bunch, it can probably happen again. Another short price.
6 READY SET ROCK – Did a fairly good job of chasing the favorites last week, but wasn’t a serious late threat. Gets stuck
outside them at the start again, so don’t be surprised to see Yannick leave again. Will need that first turn seat.
7 YOU BEDA ROCK – No real threat in the opening round last week. I fear the same from a tougher post tonight.
8 WYNONA STRIDED – Barn has two in here, and I guess this one has the slightly better chance. Did improve a lot, from
the qualifier to the first leg last week. Not bad. But, what happens from post eight in here? That is the question.
9 GAMORA – Drew post 10 for leg one, and post nine tonight. That stinks. It’s not going to work this week either.
