Candidates for stakes engagements are scattered throughout today’s program with seven promising 2-year-olds matched in the third race, Playfair Mile and Spokane Derby hopefuls in the ninth and top fillies and mares in the 10th.
Chirrup had some problems in the Kindergarten Stakes and deserves another chance among the 2-year-olds. Slewty, if he’s a legitimate Playfair Mile threat, should be right there today. And the late-running duo of Night Rodeo and Lady In Sable bring stakes credentials to the nightcap.
Here are today’s selections:
FIRST: $5 daily double combining AWINNERFORMARY with PASKY’S RANDY.
THIRD: $10 to win on CHIRRUP. Split any winnings between A GAMBLE in the seventh and SLEWTY in the ninth.
FIFTH: $5 to win on PEAK PERFORMANCE and a $5 quinella pairing him with BRASS BOBBY.
SEVENTH: $10 to win on A GAMBLE. Parlay half of any winnings to win on SLEWTY.
EIGHTH: $5 quinella pairing IN A MINUTE and HOLLYWOOD LEGEND.
NINTH: $10 to win on SLEWTY.
TENTH: $1 trifecta pairing NIGHT RODEO with every combination of SKYLARK LANE, LADY IN SABLE and WHAT A DREAM ($6).
Original bankroll: $2,000.
Friday’s result: Lost $62.
Present bankroll: $1,799.70.
