Horse of the Night

STRYKER (1ST) : Sure was impressive while knocking off this kind last week and with the pole position Im going to stick with him for another. It looks like he should be able to protect early position from here and that should put him in a perfect spot throughout the mile. He showed us a very sharp closing burst while winning last week and hes now won three of his last four starts at this level. Given his current form I think hell be good for another this evening.


Press Box Parlays

WIN : STRYKER (1ST) WITH SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR (7TH)
PLACE : LOVEDANCINWITHYOU (3RD) WITH YES INDEEDEE (8TH)


Tonight's Long Shots

INSIDEDUS SIDNEY (4TH)
PRIMROSE PATH (9TH)


Keep an Eye On These

LOVEDANCINWITHYOU (3RD) : Came flying up the inside to just miss getting it all in his last start. Hes been a model of consistency this year hitting the board in 8 of 9 starts and I expect another big try from him tonight.
MAKENA CAT (6TH) : Got off to a slow start in her last but she did rally well to finish third. If she can get away from the gate a little quicker she could be in position to mow em down in the late going.
YES INDEEDEE (8TH) : Beaten favorite was overtaken in the late going after enduring a very tough opening half-mile. If she makes the top or can settle into a nice early spot without getting hung up in another duel shes going to be tough to beat.


Backstretch Info

SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR (7TH) : Had her in this same spot last week and she wound up getting caught in the last stride after carving out all the splits. This beaten favorite deserves a chance to make amends though and with the inside post she figures to be in command of things from the word go once again. Shes a 16-time winner over the past two seasons and a 34-time career winner so she knows how to seal the deal. Look for her to grab a breather somewhere along the way and then sprint off to another victory tonight.
