Horse of the Night

ASTREAS NOTICE (10TH) : Put her in this same spot last week and she was pounded down from 8-1 in the morning line to 8-5 but she rewarded us with a hard fought wire to wire victory that night. Now she drops from that middle-level conditioned event into a 6k claimer so Iím going to ride along with her for another. She has drawn well, is dropping in class and it will be her third back after the layoff. Sounds like a winning combination to me.

Tonight's Long Shots


Keep an Eye On These

KENNANS NANCY LEE (5TH) : Turned in a very game performance to overcome a tough trip and win her last start. Iím looking for her to show a bit more speed tonight and that should put her in a perfect spot as she looks for her 18th win over the past two years.
BRIANNA OFFICIAL (6TH) : Flashed her usual good gate speed in her last start but after being pressured throughout most of the mile she wound up finishing second that night. If she can get away to an easy lead tonight she could be tough to catch.
DOCíS DEAL (7TH) : Drops back in with non-winners to be claimed after running into some tough foes in that straight 10k claiming event last time out. Heís capable of showing good speed and it looks like he may be in a ďdrop and popĒ spot tonight.

Backstretch Info

FOX VALLEY PIPPA (4TH) : Drops in for a tag as she returns to Maywood tonight and it looks like her connections have her well spotted to get back on the winning track here. She carved out all the splits in her last try on the bigger oval but just could not hold off a pretty nice filly that night. She is outside for this start but with her gate speed I think sheíll be able to make the front without too much trouble. If she can than catch a short breather somewhere along the way she could be very tough to collar in here.

Press box picks will be posted at least 24 hours prior to race date.
