Horse of the Night

GOLDEN NUGGET (8TH) : Just continues to win as he continues to change hands at the claiming box week after week. This speedball has now won six in a row while being claimed in his last three outings. He’ll debut for “team Longo” tonight as he leaves from the center of the pack. He’s pretty simple to understand as you just point him for the top and let him roll. It figures to be the same story this evening and until they prove they can handle him at this level I’ll string along with him.


Press Box Parlays

WIN : PARTY HANGOVER (7TH) WITH GOLDEN NUGGET (8TH)
PLACE : KANARIS (9TH) WITH PARK LANE HOTSHOT (11TH)


Tonight's Long Shots

MASTER OF DESIRE (10TH)
ANOTHER TEMPTATION (12TH)


Keep an Eye On These

SIR MAMMO (6TH) : Talented pacer makes his sophomore debut off a nice qualifying effort. He took on much tougher for most of 2yo campaign and he appears well placed to make his return a winning one.
KANARIS (9TH) : Made it look pretty easy from the outside over this kind in his last. Now he gets the pole position and that should put him in a perfect spot to wire another field of high end conditioned pacers.
PARK LANE HOTSHOT (11TH) : Nice effort to finish second as the public’s choice in his last. Long overdue for a trip to the charmed circle and he should have no excuse from here tonight.


Backstretch Info

PARTY HANGOVER (10TH) : Put her in this spot last week and she rewarded us with a very easy front stepping victory. She’s now a perfect two for two in 2015 and she may be sitting on her best effort in this her third start back after the layoff. She lucks right back into the same conditions tonight and as long as she avoids getting hung up in an early duel with some of the speed that’s inside of her she should have no trouble making it three in a row to open the season.
