RACE 8

  • Post Time: 4:21 PM EDT)
  • Purse: $47,000
  • Type: ALLOWANCE OPTIONAL CLAIMING
  • Distance: 1-1/16 miles
  • For Four Year Olds And Upward Which Have Never Won $10,000 Twice Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Starter Or State Bred Allowance Or Which Have Never Won Three Races Or Claiming Price $50,000.

Race 8 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 War Giant, E Jaramillo, 6/1
  • 2 Scars Are Cool, L Saez, 3/1
  • 3 Max K. O., E J Zayas, 12/1
  • 4 Noble Thought, D Davis, 4/1
  • 5 Squeezadios, C A Torres, 12/1
  • 6 Supreme Aura, J Bravo, 8/1
  • 7 Ice Tea, H I Berrios, 6/1
  • 8 Legit, I Ortiz, Jr., 5/2

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

The favorite in this race, Legit, has performed well in his three career starts (three starts, three money finishes, two wins), but there are better and more experienced horses closer to the pole that he is, and more likely to prevail.

The horse I like best in this race is Noble Thought, with a good post position and a very respectable starting record: money in two-thirds of his 30 starts, with nine first place finishes.

Race 8 Tip

This longshot’s easy: Go with Ice Tea at 6/1.

 I know–not much of a long shot, but Ice Tea has won nearly half of his 24 career starts (11 firsts, to be exact), and that outside post position shouldn’t hurt his prospects at all.

Pick
  • Noble Thought
    4/1

RACE 9 – Unbridled Stakes

  • Post Time: 4:53 PM
  • Purse: $75,000
  • Type: STAKES
  • Distance: 1-1/16 miles
  • Three Year Olds.

Race 9 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Necker Island, D Davis, 12/1
  • 2 Americanus, E J Zayas, 6/1
  • 3 Dr Post, I Ortiz, Jr., 8/5
  • 4 Relentless Dancer, C Landeros, 6/1
  • 5 South Bend, R Maragh, 4/1
  • 6 Soros, E Jaramillo, 15/1
  • 7 Attachment Rate, L Saez, 3/1

Race 9 Prediction and Pick

At 8/5 moneyline, Dr. Post is everybody’s favorite to win the Unbridled Stakes, and with Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard, who could blame them? Me, that’s who.

There are several better horses in this race, and the one I choose is South Bend (4/1), ridden by Rajiv Maragh. South Bend has finished in the money for six of his eight career starts, with three of those wins.

Race 9 Tip

You might also consider a wager on Americanus (6/1) for this stakes race.

He’s got a good career record, a great jockey (Edgard J. Zayas), and an enviable post position. What’s not to love?

Pick
  • South Bend
    4/1

RACE 11

  • Post Time: 5:57 PM
  • Purse: $48,000
  • Type: ALLOWANCE OPTIONAL CLAIMING
  • Distance: 7 furlongs
  • For Four Year Olds And Upward Which Have Never Won $10,000 Three Times Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Starter Or State Bred Allowance Or Which Have Never Won Four Races Or Which Have Not Won A Race Since October 15 Or Claiming Price $75,000.

Race 11 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Majestic Dunhill, J Bravo, 8/1
  • 2 Soldado, L Saez, 2/1
  • 3 Hembree, E Jaramillo, 12/1
  • 4 Spinoff, I Ortiz, Jr., 7/2
  • 5 Global Campaign, C Landeros, 6/1
  • 6 Rare Form, M A Vasquez, 10/1
  • 7 Borracho, N Juarez, 12/1
  • 8 Big Dollar Bill, E J Zayas, 20/1
  • 9 Yorkton, D Davis, 9/2

Race 11 Prediction and Pick

Soldado, Spinoff, and Yorkton hold the most favored moneyline positions, and I have to go with that for this race. My pick is Soldado, ridden by Luis Saez, at 2/1.

 Five career starts ending with four money runs, three of them wins—take that and throw in a great post position and you have got the makings of a first place finish.

Race 11 Tip

Your longshot wager here is Hembree, ridden by Emisael Jaramillo.

At 12/1, this six-year-old actually has been in the money more than the third-favored Yorkton—and has a much better post position.

Pick
  • Soldado
    2/1
