Horse of the Night

SUN DREAM (6TH) : Mare dropped a heart-breaker in her last start against this group as she was nipped in the closing yards after carving out all the splits. She has been a model of consistency this year putting together an eye catching record of 8-9-6 in 32 starts. She gets the call in here because she’s drawn well inside of her main rivals and if she can just catch a short breather somewhere along the way she is going to be tough to beat.


Press Box Parlays

WIN : SUN DREAM (6TH) WITH PERFECTLY CLEAR (8TH)
PLACE : WINDSONG JACOBA (9TH) WITH MASTER OF DESIRE (10TH)


Tonight's Long Shots

IT’S A SHAM (3RD)
RIP N ROCK (7TH)


Keep an Eye On These

LITENING QUICK (4TH) : Ships in from Hoosier off a solid try in his last start. He raced well here three back, he’s well versed on the half-mile oval and with the inside post it looks like he’s in a winning spot.
WINDSONG JACOBA (9TH) : Ran up against a tough winner who paced a HUGE mile in her last start. She’s been knocking at the door lately and if she can work out the right trip this looks like the time for her to pick up an overdue win.
MASTER OF DESIRE (10TH) : Turned in a pretty solid try to finish third despite a tough trip last time out. Old time class horse takes another drop on the conditioned ladder and he figures to be mighty tough against this group.


Backstretch Info

PERFECTLY CLEAR (8TH) : Beaten favorite was a hard fought second in her last and she deserves a chance to make amends with this inside draw. She’s another who is always right there hitting the board in 20 of 32 starts this season. She’s not “loaded” with speed but she does have enough gate speed to put the post to good use and that figures to put her in perfect position throughout this battle.
