by Dietz | April 8, 2020 |

Race 1 – Turf

  • 1 – MAGICAL MIKE – I learn something new each day. I learned over the past week that horses who go from open maiden races to special maiden races at (12.5 -10.5)  is a  major, major drop. Comparing semi- pro ball player to a class c league. With that being said, this is what this horse is doing.   No wonder the morning line is 2-1.   
  • 3 – JACK BEANSTALK – Saez/Casse.  Horse has been in the money past three at this level. Will not win, but exotics.
  • 6 – HONOR THIS – Meneses/Yates. Second race off the layoff (put on shelf 3/19) came closing for third in return at a higher level. I am always a believer is second off the layoff. Will be a huge price. 

Race 2 – Dirt

  • 1 – RED FOG
  • 2 – SHE LOVES ME
  • 7 – DIZZY SIGHT – Major drop in class. Gaffalione rides. Goes turf to dirt for the tighten.

Race 3 – Turf

  • 4 – MAYITO – Gaffalione/Joseph. Been in the money 3/4 at distance. Beyer's are tops in this low level field.
  • 8 – CLIFTON PARK – Saez/Romans.  Another drop on class horse can rate and close, tries turf for third time in a row. Exotics only.
  • 11 – DECLARE UNION – Rodriquez/Delgado.  Third career start. Both races had troubles trips. Hoping a better ride gets this one up for piece. Exotics.

Race 4 – Dirt

  • 2 – ONE HOT DRAMA – Zayas/Brownie. Will be on the front end. Will have to hold on, but cuts back in distance after leading all the way at 6 furlongs last race to only fade hard in end to get 4th.
  • 3 – DANCING DESTROYER – Turf to dirt for the sprint. Speed of the speed here.  Will be tough.
  • 7 – REITERATE – Gaffalione/Casse. Big drop in class. Leading rider. HIghest Beyer's in the field.

Race 5 – Turf

  • 3 – MORE THAN USUAL – Gafalione/Joseph. Second career start, will improve. Shows bullet work,1/31 for this race.  Can rate and close in a race with speed.
  • 5 – RATIFY – Rosario/Plesa. Horse came in second at this level last out. Third race of form cycle. Bred out of  CONSTITUTION. Should do well.
  • 12 – STRONG HEADED – Meneses/Gonzalez. Had a huge closing kick. Should fall back early and roll late. Concern will be clean trip running late. Second time out.  Exotics big price
  • 13 – CHOCOLATE BAR – On the AE list. This one gets in use in all wagers.

Race 6 – Dirt

  • 5 – THREE DEEP – Exotics
  • 6 – W W CANDY – Better effort second career start.
  • 9 – QUIET COMPANY –  Turf to dirt for the sprint. Will be tight.
  • 10 – EMBRACE MY UNCLE- Route to sprint.  Will have stamina.

Race 7 – Turf

  • 1 – FLASH PASS – Jaramillo/De La Cerda.  We bet this horse his last race and he got second. Sticking with.
  • 2 – MONEY RIDE – Zayas/Lerman.  Changes barns. This horse ran in a 80K optional claim last race and for third. Won race prior in 50K claim.  Drops in for lowest level yet.
  • 6 – KING OF THE RANCH – Saez/Maker. Been steady at this level. Exotics.  

Going against the 4 and 5 in this race even though on had Gaffalione riding and the other Rosario. Gaffaliones horse is a first time turfer and I think Rasario's horse bounces off the 32 Beyer jump.

Race 8 – Turf

  • 4 – SPINNING KITTEN – Rodrigquez/ Wolfson. Taking a shot with this long shot who can rate and close.  Exotics. only.
  • 5 – VOLUBILE – Gaffalione/Hess.  Closing horse trained by a lethal trainer. He will have the speed to get this race to his pace.  WINNER
  • 7 – PREACHER MARSEE – Saez/Miller – Huge Beyers for this field. Been in the money 3/4  career starts.  Bullet work coming in 1/10.  Exotics.

Race 9 – Dirt

  • 2 – YOUNGEST OF FIVE
  • 4 – MORETTI
  • 5 – ADMIRE

Race 10

Very tough race.  Check the board.

  • 3 – PASSION FACTOR – Landros/Brisset.  Second time out. Was improving in stretch in debut.  Also paid $235,000 for this horse.
  • 5 – MIGHTY ROAD – Gaffalione/Brown.  Good to see Gaffalione earning Chad Brown mounts.  Paid $1,000,000 for this horse out of QUALITY ROAD. Know it can run all day.
  • 8 – ACT LIKE ARTIE – Rosario/ Maker.  Can't ignore these two. Horse is out of a great turf sire in ARTIE SCHILLER. Third race of the from cycle.  Exotics.
