Good betting race with a hint of a price. Nothing really stands out in this race. But this track always seems to produce good prices in these kinds of races. Don't know if it's the track configuration or inability to get a hold of the contenders. However, contenders before scratches are: #3, 2 , 9, 8. The favorite #8 Temeraine (3/1) may be vulnerable having a sustained running style with my choice #2 Whatthecatdrugin (15/1) Court/McCauley. The #2 is the lone speed and has the best times with excellent connections. And, best of all, PRICE! Bet #2 to win. Exacta...2/all. Tri. 2/ 3, 9, 8, 6/ all. Good luck!!!
