Horse of the Night

SHEZ A SWIFT (7TH) : Red-hot mare guns for her fourth straight win while also starting for her fourth different barn after being claimed in her last three victories. She now boasts an eye catching record of 10-8-3 in 24 starts this year which is awfully tough to ignore. Her last win came from the eight-hole and now she moves into the two-hole so I would expect her to be headed for the front once again. It looks like she’ll be on a pretty easy lead here and that is going to make her tough to catch.


Press Box Parlays

WIN : BLUE MINT (1ST) WITH SHEZ A SWIFT (7TH)
PLACE : SEALARK HANOVER (5TH) WITH STARRY SKYS (6TH)


Tonight's Long Shots

UNRIVALLED (2ND)
DEE DEE SAGE (10TH)


Keep an Eye On These

SEALARK HANOVER (5TH) : She’s been struggling of late but she gets MAJOR post relief this evening. With the drop and a good inside trip I would expect her to get things turned in a hurry this evening.
STARRY SKYS (6TH) : Came up a little short as the public’s choice in her last start. She moves inside tonight I would expect her to be on or near the lead every step of the way as she makes amends here.
SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR (11TH) : Drops back in for a tag after finishing second against a much tougher group. Double-digit winner this year should put another notch in the win column here.


Backstretch Info

BLUE MINT (1ST) : He’s never been sharper than he is right now as he comes into this sporting wins in five of his last six starts. Most of this victories have come in late rushing fashion and with him being stuck on the far outside tonight I’m sure those will be the tactics once again. His last four wins have at come at this level and if he can work his way into what looks like it should be a decent outer flow he could wind up right back in the charmed circle here.
