I love the holiday meet at Turfway. You get daytime racing, and I always stop over and catch the last race on my way home. But hey, enough about my fun…. I like a few runners on Tuesday, and you may want to check them against the tier levels to find true value.

Race #2 – #3 – Saint Bayou Gold (6-1). De La Cruz is in the saddle for Bill Stinson. Stinson is a 48% ITM trainer. This is a horse for the course going 4/4 ITM at the TP oval. Drops in class today, and goes from open company $7,500 down to conditioned company $5,000. 2nd time off the claim, and this barn goes 33% and 67% ITM. Add in that he is 2/3 at the distance, and you may have a player.

Race #4 – #10 – Indyama Jones (6-5). Yuri Yaranga in the irons for Joe Woodard. They team up to tear it up at a 30% clip, and 60% ITM. 3rd off the layoff gives Woodard a 68% ITM win, and dropping down two classes yields him 62% ITM. His dam has won with 60% on her babies, and has 7 starters with 6 winners. Take this chalk, and use it wisely with the powerful tier level prices.

Race #6 – #5 – Do Your ABC’s (5-1). ¬†McKee in the saddle for Jeff Sheets. 2/3 at Turfway, and was pulled and steadied last out. If you look back, you will see three riders in the last three races.¬† He is spotted right, and the rider change may be the answer.

Tuesday racing in Kentucky….. Enjoy your chance to play the poly track, as Turfway will be going to a three day a week schedule starting in January.

Good luck!
