Fair Grounds

The weather forecast calls for 77 degrees and partly sunny.


Race #5 – The $75,000 Blushing K.D. – 1 1/16 on turf – 3:56 p.m. ET

#5 – Class Included (7-2) – Shaun Bridgmohan gets the mount for Ron Faucheux (32%). This daughter of Broad Brush is 18/22 ITM lifetime, and 11 of those are wins. Any runner who can post a (50%) win clip is my pal. She’s been everywhere in the country according to her PP’s, and she won impressively first off the shelf to win a $150,000 stake. Rosie jumps off to ride for Mike Maker, and they win quite a bit together. But, the rider in the saddle is up for a barn that is red-hot. That may help the odds at the window, as the barn wins (29%) going from turf -dirt.


Race #6 – The Letellier Memorial – 6f – 4:25 p.m. ET

#1 – Toni’s Holliday (4-1) =James Graham (21%) in the irons for Andrew McKeever (33%). This daughter of Harlan’s Holiday is 1/1 at FG, and last out was a perfect stalking trip to get her picture taken. There is a ton of speed in here, and she draws the rail spot which is winning (20%). This is her 3rd off the layoff, and the barn scores at a crisp (23%) on this move. I love the bullet work on 12/6, and she looks to be sitting in the right seat as they turn for home.


Race #7 – The $75,000 Bonapaw Stakes – 5 1/2f on the turf – 4:54 p.m. ET

#12 – Channel Marker (10-1) = Shaun Bridgmohan in the saddle for Al Stall (17%). They are winning (29%) as a team, and he is making the 3rd off the shelf run where they win (20%). Stall wins (29%) of his turf sprints, and this son of Purim is turning back from six panels. He is 4/4 ITM at the distance, and will have to overcome the outside post. This should not too much of a problem as he is a fast closing type who get busy when the others get leg weary. If you get anything close to 10-1, bet early and often.


Race #8 – The $75,000 Tenacious Handicap – 1 1/16 – 5:22 p.m. ET

#6 – Grand Contender (5-2) = Rosie Napravnik (27%)  in the driver’s seat for Thom Amoss. They are winning (25%) together the last month, and this son of Strong Contender won the Delta Mile impressively last out. He is going for 4 wins in a row and owns some strong works to support his readiness. He is 4/4 ITM in 2013, and should put forth a strong effort under Rosie’s patient hands.


Race #9 – The $75,000 Buddy Dilberto Memorial – 1 1/16 on turf – 5:48 p.m. ET

#2 – Daddy Nose Best (6-1) = David Flores (22%) in the saddle for Steve Asmussen (24%). This son of Scat Daddy is making a second start off the layoff, and drops down in class. He ships in from Churchill where the barn wins with (21%) of their runners. He owns some solid works and is a distance specialist going 3/3 ITM at this route. His dam Follow Your Bliss has four starters with 4 winners, and two of which are turf wins. A square price, and good connections.
