Race 3 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 The One for Fun, L D Goncalves, 6/1
  • 2 Seeing Double, B C Landeros, 6/1
  • 3 Mighty Heidi, A Triana Jr., 12/1
  • 4 Foreign Creation, D Cabrera, 5/1
  • 5 Tickle Bunny, F Wethey, Jr., 3/1
  • 6 Flyrtie Rockette, G Steinberg, 15/1
  • 7 Polly Tiz, J R Eads, 6/1
  • 8 Keena, R Eikleberry, 5/2

Race 3 Prediction and Pick

I agree with the moneyline in this race—it’s Keena at 5/2, with Ry Eikleberry aboard. Keena has moneyed in nine of her 12 career starts, and that outside post position should be no hindrance.

Race 3 Tip

Jockey Jason Eads has not been having a good 2020 (unlike the rest of us, eh?), but his mount for this race, Polly Tiz, has a very good record in comparison to her competition—eleven career starts with eight money finishes. At 6/1, I believe Polly Tiz might be a good investment.

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 2 Ransomed, K S Tohill, 12/1
  • 3 Dance Or Stroll, A B Ramos, 15/1
  • 4 Queans Altar, L Wade, 20/1
  • 5 Drip Brew, F Wethey, Jr., 3/1
  • 6 Tee Em Eye, L D Goncalves, 5/2
  • 7 Obsolete, A Triana Jr., 15/1
  • 8 Bring It On Home, L J Luzzi, 20/1
  • 9 Ari Gia, R Eikleberry, 7/2

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

The moneyline odds may not suggest it, but this could turn out to be the most hotly contested race of the day. Match a bunch of winning jockeys with an equal number of winning horses, and you’ve got what many of us would call “a horse race.” I’m going with Drip Brew at 3/1, with Floyd Wethey Jr. aboard. Drip Brew has a better money-finish record as well as a slightly better win percentage than the 5/2 favorite in this race, Tee Em Eye, ridden by Leandro Goncalves.

Race 7 Tip

Ransomed, at 12/1, is my longshot for this race. Solid record of 18 money finishes in 27 starts, with eight of those wins. With Ken Tohill aboard and a near-pole position to start, it could happen.

  • Drip Brew


  • Post Time: 5:15 PM
  • Purse: $17,050
  • Type: HANDICAP
  • Distance: 6 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Three-Year-Olds And Upward

Race 9 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Knox Court, SCRATCHED
  • 2 Direct Deceit, A Triana Jr., 12/1
  • 3 Lawton, D Cabrera, 3/1
  • 4 Shred the Rules, L D Goncalves, 6/1
  • 5 Drc All Inclusive, F Wethey, Jr., 6/1
  • 6 Oil Money, T Kennedy, 5/2
  • 7 Recount, K S Tohill, 12/1
  • 8 Bending Saint, L Wade, 4/1

Race 9 Prediction and Pick

In fifteen starts, the 5/2 favorite in this race, Oil Money, has a good record of money finishes, but it is the slightly less favored horse at 3/1—Lawton, ridden by David Cabrera—that I’m picking to win. Lawton’s career starts are impressive: 25 starts, 19 finishes in the money, five of which were wins.

Race 9 Tip

Speaking of unheralded but solid records, let’s go with the 12/1 longshot Recount, ridden by Ken Tohill. Recount has 49 career starts, 31 in the money, and 14 of which were wins.

  • Lawton
