Saturday's 7th race (3:55pm CT) from Fair Grounds is an Optional Claiming event for fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 10 feet).

#5 Kidding (9-2) overcame a lack of pace to score impressively as the favorite in a local $17.5k turf route Nov 29. She confiedently scurries back up the ladder for sharp turf trainer Burgess and Guidry rides her well.

#6 Ausus (6-1) was taken out of her tactical comfort zone in a 9f Churchill turf affair Nov 25. She won't be double digits back this time for profitable trainer Peitz.

#3 Divine Lorretta (8-1) has been part of the Trifecta in 10 of 11 turf starts and owns two wins over the local green. The consistent LA-bred beat open company here Nov 22.

$24 to win #5

This is a value race. And there is a horse that looks hard to beat at a price...#9 North By Northlite (8/1). Horse will be alone on the lead and will be hard to run down as the lead will widen when he hits the turn. Bet #9 only at 8/1 or better. If so take exactas 9/all. Tri...9/ 6,2,3,10/ all. Don't see the #5 at all. But could be wrong...been wrong before. Anyway, good luck!!!
