The final four days of the 2021 race meet are winding down. Man, where has the beautiful days of summer disappeared to? – Just seems like we just got started and 93 days later here we are. But, not to worry. We’ve been doing well with our selections and there is no better time than now to build our bankrolls for Keeneland, Belmont, and Santa Anita!

Three of the four days have rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for the Cincinnati area.


Belterra Park


Race #1

#1 – Paynted = Hails from the Steve Cannon barn and is seeking his 4th straight win. The rail post is winning at 22% and Perry Ouzts stays aboard. Look for a close-up stalking trip with Ouzts poised to pounce.


Race #2

#3 – Statesboro = Speedy gelding from the Nabu Morales barn shipping in from Cleveland. He is 4/4 ITM over the track and makes the drop down the class ladder. Morales is winning 26% on the year.


Race #3

#5 – Big On Big = Hails from the Doug Cowans barn (22%) and was a beaten chalk last time out. Switching to high % rider Luan Machado who has been 7/9 ITM the past week.



#3 – Tequila Flats = Closing son of Colonel John and been off for 55 days. Dropping down in class and moves from the turf to the dirt. Dropping down two class levels yields a 27% win clip for the barn. Albin Jimenez in the irons.


Race #5

#8 – Angle of Verdun = 2nd time off the claim for Larry Smith and drops down in class today. Look for a close-up stalk as Perry Ouzts reels in the leaders.


Race #6

#1 – Ancient Brown = This daughter of Big Brown is 4/4 ITM at Belterra and hails from the Norman Cash barn who is winning 44%. Cash wins 31% off a last race win and John McKee aboard is a very good thing as the rail is winning 20%.


Race #7

#8 – So Caught Up In You = Edwin Vizzcarrondo trainee who is winning 24% at the meet and has Nicky Figueroa in the irons. Going from a sprint to a route wins 32% for the barn.


Race #8

#2 – Aujara = Speedy filly from the Gorostieta barn who is winning 33% at the meet. Luis Batista has the call and she was a beaten chalk last out looking to graduate today.
