PLAINRIDGE PARK PICKS

Thursday, October 26th

By Lenny Calderone

 

Race 1 –

TOP PICK: #7 – ONLY PASSING THRU – was a non factor in some big stakes events out of town; returns to friendly confines of Plainridge the sight of his latest success & should deliver the goods.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #5 – ONE SWAN FOR ALL & #6 – BOOYAH T J

Race 2 -

TOP PICK: #5 – FIRE N DIAMONDS – can always be counted on to give a good account of herself; mare is sharp and figures much the best versus this group.

OTHER TOP CONTENDERS:  #2 – SHADYTOUCH & #4 – KILLING EM SOFTLY

Race 3 -

TOP PICK: #4 – MY BUDDY HALL LEE – is a fairly consistent sort who fits very well and has a good shot at coming out on top in this affair.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:   #1 – MAINE CAST & #2 – BOLD FRESH

Race 4 –

TOP PICK:  #4 – SGT MOLLY PITCHER – lost photo after leading throughout from post 8 as favorite in last; makes amends.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:  #1 – ALWAYS MINDY & #3 – YOU’RE NEWS

Race 5 –

TOP PICK:  #2 – MASTER OF LAW – flashed good early speed but shortened stride when it counted the most finishing fourth as choice at Hoosier Park last two weeks ago; in good hands and may prove best.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #4 – TROPICAL TRICE & #6 – ANDRIY FORTUNA

Race 6 –

TOP PICK:  #3 – CHAMPAIGN PUNCH – rallied from far back to finish second best at 18-1 last time out; draws well and could find herself in front of the camera lens this afternoon.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #6 – B B HAPPY & #8 – MIA’S FIRST TIME

Race 7 –

TOP PICK:  #5 – BLACK BROADWAY – is in the midst of a very successful 4 year old campaign; classy lady meets a tad weaker field of Open trotters and should show bossy ways today.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:  #6 – DONY ANDREAS & #4 – WIND AND A PRAYER

Race 8 –

TOP PICK: #3 – IHEARTQUESTIONMARK – is a battle-tested race mare who takes a well deserved drop in class; appears best.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #2 – MAKE MAGIC & #1 – KESONS AVAIA

Race 9 –

TOP PICK: #4 – CARLINA HANOVER – was a respectable third place finisher from 8 hole at 27-1 last out; draws inside several notches and could scamper home on top.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #5 – ETERNAL RING & #1 - IANTHEHANOVER
