Race 1:

1   BETTORS DONTTELL – Loves this track and can roll on the lead. Beware.

2   JILLIBY DYNAMITE A – Held on with perfect steer in last.

3   CASUAL COOL – Has raced big here in the past. Top player.

4   CAPTAIN COWBOY – Has not been on a game this year yet.

5   IDEALSOMEMAGIC A – Ships in off huge win.

6   STONEBRIDGE HELIOS – Loves to roll on the lead. The one to beat.

7   SOUTH BEACH STAR – Has raced huge for Silva. Can fly off the gate.

Selections: 7-4-8-1

Race 2:

1    BEACH COWGIRL – Two strong efforts to start the year from her, but the last few haven’t been quite as sharp, including last time out when she made a break at the start. Will be looking to rebound in this one.

2   SYLVIA HANOVER – She has just been so impressive this season. Every time it seems like she’s in trouble, she still finds a way to win. Will be an extremely short price here, but she is clearly and obviously the one to beat in this one.

3   FRONT PAGE STORY – Flew home in :26.0 last time out and was a very close second at the line to CHARLESTON. Had to work from an outside post last week and should be closer early in this short field.

4   CAVIART DAVIA – Fifth last time out in just her second start of the year at a massive number in the Tompkins-Geers. Looks to be up against it with this group, but crazy things can happen in short fields.

5   BELLISIMA HANOVER – Kicked in :26.1 and was beaten just two lengths while finishing fifth last time out in the Tompkins-Geers. Will make her third start of the season in this one and will look to build on her last two efforts.


Selections: 2-3-5-1
