Tuesday is back… Not many big races going, but there is always action with some small circuits that can offer value. You may have to stretch out to find multiple race plays, but it is there all the same.


Race #3 – #5 -Playing Posse (8-1).

Dean Sarvis in the irons, and Chris Melton is the trainer at 30% a winner. Oh, don’t forget that Sarvis is rolling at a 28% clip himself. This runner shows speed, and stopped last out at Churchill Downs. Drops in from maiden claiming 15, and is the 1st time for Melton’s barn. Drops down two classes, and that yields a 60% ITM move. Catch him if you can!

Race #5 – #1 El Bomba (4-1).

Albert Pusac in the saddle for Jeff Greenhill. Greenhill stables at Turfway Park, and is a respectable trainer. Ships in from TP, and that gets him a 20% ITM move. Last out, Bomba came flying in the middle of the track. He has one eye, and you can bet they will get him off the rail so he can see the others. AW – dirt gets this barn a 25% clip, and 56% ITM. He is a very tough runner, and Greenhill doesn’t go to Beulah too often……

Race #6 – Trojan Beauty (5-2).

Pusac aboard for the red-hot Sidney Marshall (33%). They team up to win 60%, and are 100% ITM…. This might be a nice key runner for you, if the odds drop. 3/3 at Beulah, and drops down a class. Marshall gets 100% on this move. This level two back, and you will see he hit a homer!

Good luck, and be sure to check your sheets before heading out.
