Race #1 – #3 Missile Motor (5-1)
Fresh off a claim, and the barn is 33% ITM on this move. 7/13 ITM on the inner track, and the bug boy Rodriguez is looking solid in the saddle. Two back to back claims show interest from owners, and he is bumping up one class level. Beaten favorite last out, and goes the second off the shelf angle.
Race #2 – #7 Raecinjasin (5-2)
Nice colt for Galluccio, and C.C. Lopez is up today. Was BUMPED soundly last out, and showed no real speed. Lopez is a known speedball rider, and I would look for a fresh break. Blinkers on for this ride, and this will focus his mind on business….. Look for a better trip.
Race #5 – #5 Rift (6-5)
Speedy guy for Dick Dutrow. Heavily bet last two, and the works have been hot. This two-year-old is set to take the lead, and he was a $120k sales purchase. Dominguez in the saddle, and he looks his odds today.
Race #7 – #2 Overcommunication (7-2)
A $235k purchase, and exits a very bad trip in the G-3 Discovery. Backs up from a 1 1/8th to 1.70 yards. Shows good stalking speed for Pletcher and Johnny V, and they are rolling at a 48% clip ITM. A clean trip, the drop in class, and the shorter distance may be the answer.
