Sometimes you’ll find some of the best value at the marquee races, and sometimes it’s the small track that cashes tickets. Either way, we’ll take it any way we can get it as long as it builds our bankroll. – I make the morning line for Belterra and have first look over the runners. I like to go back and watch race replays and keep copious notes on runners coming back next start. So, sit back and enjoy some free selections to whet your handicapping whistle.

The weather calls for 91 degrees / sunny with only a 10% chance of rain.


Race #1 – #1 – Yes I’m Evil = She’s a horse-for-the course going 9/11 ITM and looking for her third straight win. Trainer Bentley Combs is winning 33% and this may be a single or (free spot) in your early pick-four. She will stalk and pounce.

Race #2 – #1 – Anytimeallthetime = Part of an entry for Eric Reed who is winning 15% at Belterra Park and doing well at Mountaineer as well. – He’s been off 57 days and has some solid works at Eric’s Mercury Training Center. He ships in from the “Mountain” and had a horrible trip hitting the rail. He looks to have the ability to come running and Sonny Leon gets the call.

Race #3 – #8 – Company’s Coming = She is 1/1 at BtP and gets back to the turf where she broke her maiden. Perry Ouzts is having the year of his life on the turf winning at a red-hot 31%. – Look for Ouzts to stalk just off and storm around the final turn.

Race #5 – #1 – Copper Town = Hails from the Wesley Ward barn for the China Horse Club Ltd. – He’s been off for 56 days and sports blistering speed. Cutting back in distance and dropping in class may be a free-spot in multi-race wagers. Joe Ramos in the irons and he wins 18% with early speed runners.

Race #6 – #7 – Frank the Tank = Comes from the Paul McEntee barn and makes big rider change to high percentage Joe Ramos. A closer who gets an extra half furlong to come rolling.

Race #7 – #8 – Siete Leguas = Comes into the race 4/4 ITM over the track for trainer Cipriano Contreras winning 24%. – He exits off a strong 7 length win and should stalk just off the leader.
