Get A Hunch, Bet A Bunch
Tonight, we trot out some of the horses for the course and try to decide if it will be their night once again.
In the seventh race, Finnish Royalty has 14 wins at Playfair, five of them this year. In the ninth, at a testing 1 miles, Funnymoney Habit goes for his own 14th local victory. Like Finnish Royalty, he won his last and has the best Beyer rating at the distance. The 10th-race field includes Jacob Brown, nine times a winner here for his career. However, he’ll get some argument from Souhiel, who made it 5x14 at Playfair last time out.
