Tuesday's 5th race (7:40pm ET) from Indiana Downs is an Optional Claiming affair for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course.
#4 Bold Choice (6-1) exits a sharp late running tally in a flat mile dirt race at Ellis Park July 12. He earned his diploma on turf, which started a 3-race win streak last year. High % rider Santana is 2-for-5 with sharp local trainer Moquett and he could sit the right trip behind multiple early runners.
#2 Flattermejim (6-1) stalked and pounced his way to an easy Ellis Park turf route tally July 4 and Vance shows a profit with 46-90 day layoff runners.
#1 Easy Crossing (8-1) showed turf ability as a 3yo last year and might be ready to get back to that sharp form after a pair of respectable efforts at Colonial Downs and Mountaineer. He hails from a profitable barn and projects a cozy ground saving tactical trip.
$10 to win #4
.50 cent Trifecta 2-4/1-2-4/ALL ($20)
