Race 2 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Pierpont, S A Bethke, 4/1
  • 2 Dribbles, L R Rodriguez, 6/1
  • 3 Big Guy Ian, C Fackler, 5/2
  • 4 El Diablo Grande, A Martinez, 8/1
  • 5 Theboyzdelight, SCRATCHED
  • 6 Academy Bay, J L Olesiak, 8/5

Race 2 Prediction and Pick

This will almost certainly be a very tight race, but I’m going to go with the third-favorite to win at 4/1—Pierpont, ridden by Scott Bethke. Pierpont has the pole position and a solid career start record, with six wins in 25 career starts (14 money finishes).

Race 2 Tip

The longshots in this race are at 8/1 moneyline odds, but I fancy Dribbles at 6/1. Ridden by Luis Ramon Rodriguez, Dribbles has a slightly better money-finish percentage than the more favored thoroughbreds, with 36 career starts, 19 in the money (5 of them wins).

Race 4 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Garbar Boy, B McNeil, 6/1
  • 2 Drastic, S A Bethke, 6/1
  • 3 Eastside Boy, J L Olesiak, 3/1
  • 4 Bell Ringer, F Arrieta, 5/2
  • 5 Alex of Ice, A Martinez, 7/2
  • 6 Youwonderwhyidrink, M T Luark, 10/1
  • 7 Son of So, SCRATCHED

Race 4 Prediction and Pick

I’m going to stick with the 5/2 favorite in this race: Bell Ringer, ridden by Francisco Arrieta. I’m also going to predict a close race, maybe even a photo finish—the records of the top three favorites are that similar.

Race 4 Tip

You can trust the long odds in this race, but it’s possible that Drastic, with Scott Bethke aboard, might defy the 6/1 moneyline and sneak across the finish line first. Drastic has the advantage of a near-pole starting position, as well as a better money-finish percentage in his career starts than any of his competition.

Race 5 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Go Gold, A Martinez, 4/1
  • 2 Super Charlie, B McNeil, 5/1
  • 3 Be My Shadow, F Arrieta, 3/1
  • 4 L B Gold, S A Bethke, 8/1
  • 5 Love At Night, C Fackler, 7/2
  • 6 Phlash Drive, J L Olesiak, 5/2

Race 5 Prediction and Pick

Phlash Drive at 5/2 is the favorite in this race, and four wins out of five career starts is impressive. However, I like Chris Fackler’s mount for this race, Love At Night (7/2). This mare has an even more impressive record: Out of 21 career starts, she’s finished in the money 17 times, with 13 of those wins.

Race 5 Tip

No longshots to tout for this race; the only one that approaches “longshot” territory is L B Gold at 8/1, and I just don’t think that is going to happen.
