track lights went out after the 2nd race, BIG delay on hand currently
atypical is the word the spell checker changed in the above
Need to add that this is ONE of those tracks that is so typical so as the formful horse coming in from standard tracks does NOT transfer well to this one. Mountaineer is another that is classic for this, as is the Turfway to Keeneland transfers, Parx to Aqu or Belmont..It is important to keep records of these holes in understanding as they will QUICKLY eat a big hole in your wagering stash.
Contenders: #1, 4, 2, 7. The favorite #1 Flashy Campaign (2/1) is legitimate and tough to play against. Only one that seems to have a chance is the #4 Ocean Bertie (3/1) who has both early speed and turn time. Low profit potential. Take your choice...good luck!!!
never do all that well here. Contenders before scratches are: 4 Ocean Bertie 1 Flashy Campaign 7 Special Guest 2 Juliet Dear
