Wednesday's 8th race (9:41pm ET) from Mountaineer is an Optional Claiming heat for 3-year-olds and up dashing five and one-half furlongs on the main track.
#5 Judge Carr
(5-2) was one I followed on the SoCal circuit. He traveled east to ThistleDown (2nd on April 18) and won on May 7 and was unprepared for the start vs. a next out winner May 24. Sharp local rider Loveberry (25% here) clicks with Radosevich (3 for last 9) and he looms a stalk and pounce winner with a clean journey.
