Tuesday, March 24

Fonner Park, Race 9: Tondi S. (6 furlongs, 8:06 p.m. ET)

#1 Holding Fast (9-2 on the morning line) loves Fonner Park. He has compiled four wins and two seconds from six runs over this track. A late-running 5-year-old, Hold Me Back was beaten just a neck in a $16,000 claiming race at Keeneland last fall and recently returned from a layoff to claim a 6-furlong allowance race at Fonner in easy fashion. Leading rider Armando Martinez will retain the mount for high-percentage trainer Kelli Martinez, a 32% winner at Fonner this winter.

Let’s bet Holding Fast to win, and key him in the exacta, with #4 For the Hustle (10-1) and #8 Ted W (7-2).

$10 to win on #1 Holding Fast
$4 exacta: 1 with 4,8 ($8)
$6 exacta: 4,8 with 1 ($12)

Good luck!
