Race 1: Starter Allowance $12,500 at 5 1/2 furlongs
There is a lot of speed on paper and things should set up well for Quick Money (#7). Moments Notiz will be tough, but underlaid.
$10 Win 7
Race 3: Allowance N1X at six furlongs
Gombey Dancer (#6) has run into some tough foes and wet tracks he doesn’t care for. One of his better efforts will win this.
$15 Win 6
Race 8: The Whodam Stakes at one mile for NY-breds
Zivo (#2) is good enough to win this on his own merits and a likely pace confrontation between the two favorites can only help.
$15 Win 2 (WINNER; Payout: $56.25)
Race 9: Maiden Special Weight at one mile for NY-bred two year-old fillies
I’m very skeptical of the horses coming out of that 12/28 route race and want no part of It’s Easy. I’ve landed on La Dama de Hierro (#8) as my top pick since she’s done some decent running late in her two starts sprinting and figures to appreciate a route of ground being by Raffie’s Majesty. I will box her in the exacta with Storied Lady (#1) and Truericepudding (#9), both of whom could potentially take a step forward stretching out in distance.
$10 Win 8
$2 Exacta Box 1/8/9
