Horse of the Night

TJS ROCKY (7TH) : Beaten favorite deserves a chance to make amends after finishing second last time out despite a very tough trip. He was a bit tardy at the start and that put him in poor striking position for most of the mile. After making a big three wide sweep on the final turn he was closing fast but simply ran out of time and was forced to settle for the runner-up role. This gelding loves this oval and with the improved starting spot he should have the striking position he needs to knock off this group.

Tonight's Long Shots

OGS TUX IS SHINING (8TH)
BETTORS BABE (9TH)


Keep an Eye On These

AUBSESSION (2ND) : Returned from a four month layoff to post a very impressive victory last time out. Shes right back in at the same level tonight and if she can work her way into striking position she should be good for another.
DESI DUNE (3RD) : Keeps knocking at the door and tonight she gets the coveted inside starting spot. Looks like the perfect spot for this beaten favorite to make amends.
KENNANS NANCY LEE (10TH) : Drops back to the bottom level claimers after finishing third with tougher. Shes dominated this group the last few seasons and she should get back to her winning ways here.


Backstretch Info

YES INDEEDEE (6TH) : Late blooming mare has won her last two starts here and three of her last four starts overall. All of her victories have come in front stepping fashion so shes definitely got the speed to overcome the outside starting spot tonight. Her only defeat in her last five starts was a heartbreaking photo in which she was nipped in the final strides. Those last two victories have come at this same level so Im going to stick with her for another in this spot.
