Only a couple days left in the race meet, and this Saturday is bound to have your inner gambler ready to roll. – But, in the meantime still, plenty of spot plays to have your bankroll in ship-shape! – What are ya’ waiting for? It’s almost post-time!


Turfway Park / Friday


Race#1 – #1 – Honky Tonk Hero (9-5) = is a son of Ghosyzapper and just missed last out. Big time switch to Santiago Gonzalez in the saddle for Luis Cotto. He should be right on the lead and Gonzalez wins 20% with speed-type runners.


Race#3 – #2 – Wing Commander (2-1)= Ships in from FG and takes a big drop in class. Blinkers back on to get some more focus and early speed. Bejarano has the call and he is always dangerous when loading in the gate.


Race#5 – #6 – Can’tbetemall ( 9-5)= He hails from the Jamie Grubbs barn and 6/8 ITM lifetime at TP. – He fits the conditions and exits off a win. Grubbs wins 15% with last time winners returning. Horse for the course.


Race#6 – #1 – The Stiff (9-5) =Late runner taking a big drop in class for trainer Michael McCarthy. You may remember the barn as they won the Preakness last year. – Kazushi Kimura in the saddle, and was doing good work at Woodbine before shipping down and riding the late part of the meet. The barn wins 24% on synthetic and should be tracking mid-flight with a solid late kick.


Race#8 – #9 – Kick Out the Jams (7-2)= 2nd time off the layoff and drops down in class today. Trainer Sergio Baez wins 36% second time back, and 42% with maiden claimers. Look for a good late kick coming off a troubled trip.


Only a couple of days for the Turfway meet and off to Keeneland next up. – The races today are good bankroll builders and the Saturday card offers great value! – Best of luck from Winning Ponies!
