Indiana Grand race 8 | 5:21 pm ET Allowance for 3&up going 1-1/16 mi. (T)

1-Big Lucky, This 5 year old gelding has placed in 12 of his 30 career starts, while winning 5 of those. In his last start against the same, he was unhurried early and rallied 3 wide into second turn to finish 2nd  This trainer-jockey combo is winning at 29%.

7-Follow the Money Trail, This 6 year old gelding has placed in an amazing 23 of his 36 career starts while winning 10. In his last start, he was off very awkwardly locked and stalked the pace 3 wide. But he locked a late bid and finished third. No doubt he will be right there at the finish.

8-Mygalsal, This 3 year old colt has placed in 7 of his 10 career starts. This baby of the bunch gets huge class relief today. In his last race at Churchill Downs on June 28th in a 52K allowance race, he was bumped and bothered early and took the 5 path into the far turnand finished fifth. Adds Jockey Juan Saez.

Picks: 8 - 7 - 1 

Long shot play: 4-Surf Classic

Good luck and have fun!
