Horse of the Night

SAYITALL BB (7TH) : Good looking filly has been lightly raced up to this point but her connections are very high on her and I am too after watching that impressive win in 1:51.3 last week at Balmoral. She’s now won 11 of 16 career starts for the top barn in the country and with her blazing gate speed she figures to be forwardly placed in here. With only 6 starters in this division I don’t think she’ll be pressed very hard and that is going to make her awfully tough to catch.

Tonight's Long Shots

ATOMIC ART (12TH)


Keep an Eye On These

EARNDAWG-KING OF THE SWAMP ENTRY (4TH) : Welch trained duo will be tough to stop here. The former was a sharp second in the Am Nat last week and he should be in a perfect spot tonight. Looks to be the best in this group.
LADY SHADOW (8TH) : Ships into town for a barn that has had success here on Windy City Pace night in the past. She was brutalized by a tough trip in her last in Canada but she figures to have a much easier time making the top tonight. Look for a pillar to post performance fr
SOMEWHERE IN L A (9TH) : Had to come from way out of it to finish second in the Am Nat last week. He raced well on the half at the “Jug” and he should be in a perfect spot tonight. Classy pacer will be tough to stop from here tonight.


Backstretch Info

ROMPAWAY GALAXY (6TH) : Will need to work out a trip from this starting spot in the second tier but this ultra-consistent gelding looks very tough tonight. He chased a runaway winner while finishing third in the Am Nat at Balmoral last week and that effort came from a tough post. He’s been on the board in 19 of his 20 lifetime starts and as long as he avoids traffic issues tonight he should take home a big paycheck here.
