Horse of the Night

I DONíT REMBER (5TH) : Mare has started the year on fire winning three of her first four starts with all of those victories coming in very impressive stretch rushing fashion. Sheís overcome some tough trips in those wins and I would not be surprised to see her have to rough it first over once again. With the starting spot in the middle of the pack she should be in perfect striking position to blow right by another group for the victory.


Press Box Parlays

WIN : SUSAN SARANDUNE (4TH) WITH I DONíT REMBER (5TH)
PLACE : FOUR HOUR NAP (8TH) WITH ODDS ON DOMINICA (10TH)


Tonight's Long Shots

IDEAL MADONNA (1ST)
JOYFUL GAME (7TH)


Keep an Eye On These

DUNESIDE ART (3RD) : Drops out of ICF stake where he battled much tougher last time out. He was a very suggestive second prior to that and from the pole he should be in line for a nice ground saving trip so letís give him the nod.
FOUR HOUR NAP (8TH) : Sat in the perfect spot but just could not muster up the needed closing response in her last. She should be in the same spot tonight and with this barn really starting to heat things up Iíll give her another chance to pick up the overdue win.
ODDS ON DOMINICA (10TH) : Speedball has rattled off four straight wins in wire to wire fashion. Sheís stuck on the far outside tonight but with her fine gate speed she still figures to make the lead so letís stick with her for another.


Backstretch Info

SUSAN SARANDUNE (4TH) : Filly ships back from Balmoral after posting a nice win over ICF stakes company in her last start. She drew off in the late going of that effort despite being used twice during the mile and that really impressed me. I also like the fact that she finally showed good gate speed which is going to help her from this post. With the drop back into non-winners she appears well placed to pick up another win.
