We are back at Palm Beach for 15 more fantastic races for your Wednesday viewing pleasure. Race Announcer Fastrak Dale Simons will be calling the winners home all day long.  Here are my top races I will be following for the Matinee:

Race 6 Class B 545 Yards #2 TF St Pius is going to lead in this race but has given up that lead very frequently. You start looking for a closer and #8 Gabby Gold should be it. Just went 29.65 sec for the win last time out and is finishing in the Quinela 71% of the time since transferring from Derby Lane. Picks: 8 - 2 - 1 - 4

Race 7 Class C 545 Yards Another Rader Racing pup is tearing up Palm Beach and his name is Lil Buddy Rocky. 5 wins out of 6 races (including schooling) and now gets the best box for this distance to bolt out of.

Picks: 8 - 7 - 3 - 2

Race 12 Class B 545 Yards One of the best trends to watch out for is Class A hounds dropping down into the B.  Especially ones that love racing on the rail. #2 Yahoo Diablo is in a prime spot to go box to wire. Should see competition from from other “A” dropper #5 Dyloot but Diablo should get another win for Rader Racing.

Race 14 Class A 660 Yards The #7 Flying Zinc from the Royal Racing Team gets the call in this one. Only had one win last month and looks to get back on track against a beatable field in his favorite spot on the outside part of the track. The Derby champ will get a challenge from early speedster #5 Legally Buzzed, who is sitting in the same spot he won out of last time out in 38.16 secs. Zinc is the class of this field and I think gets her 15th win this season.

Picks: 7 - 5 - 1 - 3

Race 15 Class A 545 Yards One of the hottest racers at the track #6 CRT Yusef goes for 4 in a row and 5 out of his last 6 races. Probably won’t lead in this race but has one of the most ferocious closes here. Came back from 6th place midway through the last race and won at the wire. Early speedster #2 Kiowa Carmen should pop the lid first but Yusef reels in another early speedster for the win.

Picks: 6 - 2 - 5 - 3

Top Pick Race 15: #6 CRT Yusef

Top Sleeper Race 2: #4 AMF Atom Bomb
