Picks made Wednesday for fast track and on turf
5 – Mad Adam – Owned by a horseplayer who is running hot right now, so let’s go today.
6 – Mount Kenya – In the top owner’s barn of L and G and seems to fit here off class and style.
8 – Landofthepharoahs – In good form after win in last race – in new barn – should get good trip.
1 – Mias Moonbeam – Has the rail and the two turn experience and might show a bit more speed.
6 – Kingofbrokenhearts – Looked like a sure winner in last race until maybe got tired. Will be fitter today.
5 – Cheerfor Mshawish – Has the big win in last race and is in form with room for improvement.
1 – Kislovodsk – Trying to get trainer Dorochenko off the duck at the meet — today is the day.
8 – Chili Red – Likely needed last race for fitness and it was a good effort. A new barn helps chances.
1 – Russian Tank – Can improve moving into new barn and not much to beat in here besides favorite.
5 – Open Road – Clearly the one to beat based on past speed figures but will be short price.
7 – Peso Pesado – Seems like a fit in here for trainer going for leading trainer at the meet.
1 – Syvestar – Gets back to a sprint where he ran a good race at the level in his debut.
1 – Shelli’s Angel – Back to sprinting where this one has win over track last year – long shot.
11 – Kyle Beauty – The one to beat after two blowout wins to start career — short price.
4 – Twirling Roses – Should get nice price here after turf try and going back to dirt is a plus.
9 – Underhill’s Tab – Throw out last race after prerace antics. Will come back freshened and ready.
1 – Uncle Jett – Long first-time starter here with not much to beat but needs some racing luck.
2 – Joey’s Game – Goes from turf to dirt and drops significantly in class. Retains jockey and is live here
Around the Track
We must make mention of a horse owner in Race 1 today, Francis Boustany who nearly won the National Horseplayer Championship a few weeks ago in Las Vegas and the $800,000 prize. Boustany led for two of the three days and finished a strong second in a field of more than 700 entries — including Chok’s Choices. Congrats to Francis on a great showing and the $250,000 prize money. Here are the results for Chok’s Choices for the meet:
1st Choice 591-129-96-92 = 22% – Win/54% In-the-Money- .76 Return on Investment for $1
2nd Choice 573-158-106-91-= 28%- Win//62% In-the-Money – 1.00 Return on Investment for $1
Our Best Bet on Wednesday will be in Race 6 — No. 7 Peso Pesado. This one drops down to get a win for a trainer trying to win leading trainer title.
Good luck and may they all come home safely.
