Monday's Best Bet: Celturian back on turf at Turf Paradise

February 10, 2019 04:57pm

Monday’s second race from Turf Paradise is a $14,000 allowance event for 3-year-olds and up which have never won two races. They will be traveling one mile on the turf course (Post Time - 3:24 p.m. ET). 

#3 CELTURIAN (5-2) stalked and retreated in a salty optional claiming dirt route Jan. 29. He graduated in a local turf route on good footing Jan. 9 and might fall into a perfect stalking trip under Scott Stevens.  

#2 Its a Boy (2-1) got up late in his local turf debut last fall and exits an okay 4th in a $25k stakes affair at this course/distance. The lightly raced sophomore gelding gets pace to chase. 

#5 Suances Secret (8-5) exits a solid 2nd vs. similar local turf milers at 12-1 odds. The 1-for-18 gelding like to mix it up early and I do not trust him to outlast these as the chalk.

The Plays: 

#3 to win

Exacta Box 2-3

Trifecta Key 3/2-5
