Horse of the Night

TAMARAC SASSY (5TH) : Classy veteran carved out all the splits before getting collared late in her 2015 debut. That was a big effort in defeat considering the fact she had been off for over three months and had just one qualifier to get her ready for her seasonal debut. She’s a 42-time career winner who boasts more than $322,000 in career earnings. Some of her best work has come on the half-mile oval here and now that she’s got the inside post and a start under her belt it should be all systems go tonight.

Tonight's Long Shots

TERRORIZE THE MOON (6TH)
DUNSIDE ART (8TH)


Keep an Eye On These

JM’SDUKEOFDELIGHT (1ST) : Was outside a long way in that third place finish last time out. He should be in line for a nice ground saving journey from this post and that will give him a big shot to pick up the overdue win.
TARUKE (3RD) : Had all sorts of traffic problems in a very troubled trip last time out. Late rusher figures to be very dangerous against this group if he gets clear sailing this evening.
WINDSUN MONTECARLO (7TH) : Big class drop for this mare who also gets major post relief tonight. She knocked off this kind two starts back and she appears to have found a winning spot tonight.


Backstretch Info

AT MAX SPEED & FOX VALLEY NORMAN –ENTRY (10TH) : Two for the price of one with this Perry Smith trained entry. The former steps up a notch after posting a nice win from an outside post in his last. He’s got the speed to take advantage of the inside starting spot and sit up close every step of the way tonight and that will make him very dangerous. The latter carved out all the splits in a very fast mile but could not hold off a tough winner and was forced to settle for the runner-up role last time out. He should also be out and winging from the word go and I would not be surprised to see these two go around the track 1-2 throughout.


Press box picks will be posted at least 24 hours prior to race date.
