Monday, October 30th

By Lenny Calderone

 

Race 1 –

TOP PICK: #3 – BIGGIE – is fresh off a gate to wire score in swift 1:53.1 clocking as favorite last week; 4 year old appears well positioned to take this group for another down the road speed show.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #2 – TRIGGER FINGER & #1 - ARSENAL

Race 2 -

TOP PICK: #3 – GATEWOOD – has been sluggish but does have some back class to him and may be able to find a way to the promised land today.

OTHER TOP CONTENDERS:  #7 – HOT RODDY & #6 – PRIVATE EQUITY

Race 3 -

TOP PICK: #6 – SB MIKES HOT BEACH – has keen early speed at times; 9 year old should be able to out leave this bunch and keep foes in his rear view mirror all the way around the track.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:   #1 – ROOSTER RABBIT & #2 – BP DIET FOOD

Race 4 –

TOP PICK:  #1 – FAST N VICTORIOUS -  never looked back en route to easy two length victory as overwhelming choice versus this same field; has rail and should click again.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:  #6 – BIG BAD JASON & #4 – ACADEMIC HANOVER

Race 5 –

TOP PICK:  #4 – REAL OR MAGIC – was a big flop as favorite in last; has leading reinsman Greg Merton at the controls and should show true colors this time around.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #6 – WINDSONG GORGEOUS & #3 – CITY PIE

Race 6 –

TOP PICK:  #4 – PRINCEOFTHEFOREST – is a Maine invader who has done nothing but win; 3 year old is 15 for 22 lifetime and figures best in here.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #2 – BEACHCHIP HANOVER & #3 - MERCENARY

Race 7 –

TOP PICK:  #1 – PRINCE ASTON – drops in class and draws the rail to boot; one to halt.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS:  #4 – THE POKESTER & #5 – IDEAL BID

Race 8 –

TOP PICK: #5 – OR – drops in for a claiming tag of $10,000 the level of his most recent success and should return to winning ways.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #3 – WARRAWEE NONSUCH & #2 – MCELODIAN

Race 9 –

TOP PICK: 4 – SOMEPLACE SPECIAL – is no stranger to the winner’s circle; 7 year old has his work cut out but is highly capable of handling this crew.

OTHER MAIN CONTENDERS: #5 – HE’S MARVALOUS & #3 – JACKSON’S IMAGE
