Free selection on some of the days.


race 4    20 April 18

2  Yuvetsi   vastly improved and more dangerous since switching to dirt racing from turf racing......and......her latest was ultra impressive running a fast time for the given day despite racing wide and doing so up on the pace......3 reassuring drills since the race........should be tough once again and a good chance to add to her (3 1 2 0) dirt record

6  Marley's Freedom   5 of his last 8 lifetime races all of which are on the dirt fit solidly at today's nw2 alw level......difficult to separate top two picks.......placed 2nd mainly in that she might regress some off of an all out effort to win a Grade 2 four weeks ago

3  Surrender Now   only three-year old filly in the race but she has an abundance of her speed and a good dirt rider at Santa Anita in Espinoza......not sure if she is ready off of the 9 month layoff but if she is (she did win her MSW debut) she might have a shot to go gate to wire


race 11  14 April 18    6-9 exacta paid $35.40

7  Red Obsession   bet some in his MC debut in the 26 January version of this race but only ran so so showing speed and tiring........returns with a new trainer and Mulhall has gotten much more out of the gelding in the a.m. than Baltas did.......believe we see a much better effort in this fellow's 2nd out

6  Insuborination   good gate breaking gelding appears to be the speed of the speed ........cut back of 1/2 furlong appears to be to his does a positive change in apprentice riders

9  Righteous Wave   nowhere to be found in his MSW debut which was 51 weeks ago........but I doubt that will be the case today as his last preparatory work is a solid 5F gate drill.......that and Headley entices C-Nak to take the mount

8  Jerry's Thunder

3  Seattle Encounter

1  The tattoo Kid
