Race 4 - Grade A - 583 yard course - The key here is going to be the (8) Branding Iron who likes it mid to wide and who is well posted to make a strong run. He is coming off a nice third place finish in his last race which was also from the eight box and should have a clear running lane here. The (6) Kiowa Oriole is capable of a big race and will need a good break to avoid early trouble and should she get the rail, she's going to be challenging for the win as well. I will also include the (1) WWW Delta Force and the (2) GS Bella as both have some early speed as well as some closing ability and either could make the tri and superfecta plays.

Pick 8-6-1-2

Race 11 - Grade AA - 660 yard course - I'm going with the (1) Topline Drive as the key here as he loves the rail and has two wins from the one box in his last three races. The (6) Time Flies is a hard running greyhound that will be a big threat and capable of getting the early lead. He has two wins and two seconds in his last six races so I can't overlook him here. The (7) Kiowa Jared likes it mid to wide and is well posted to make a challenge. To finish the play I will use the (4) State Of Art who has encountered trouble of late but could sneak in the bottom half of the ticket.

Pick 1-6-7-4

Race 18 - Grade AA - 703 yard course - The one to beat here is the (8) Flying War Wager who is going for her fifth win in her last seven races. Out fast and vying for the early lead, she should be in good position to make her move down the backstretch and finish strong for the win. The (1) Gigawatt and the (4) Kiowa Groom will both be challenging for the front as well and if the 8 has any early trouble, these two could battle paw to paw to the finish line. I will complete the play by using the (2) KL's Pete who runs hard and may surprise the field with a big early rush.

Pick 8-1-4-2

The Moneymaker play of the evening is in the 17th race, a Grade TAA contest over the 820 yard super marathon course and the pick is the (1) RC Holdingspride. He likes the inside and will be coming strong at the end. He has three wins in his last six races and always gives 110%. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
