Monday's Best Bet: Push Through can break through at Turf Paradise

Monday’s 9th race from Turf Paradise is an optional claiming event for 4-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course (Post Time 6:14 p.m. ET).

#1 PUSH THROUGH (9-2) was winless in six starts last year but faced some decent state bred optional claiming turf routers in Southern California. He might fall into a nice ground saving trip behind the speed and he is right with these on numbers. 

#4 Seau (7-2) is a consistent gelding with nine trifecta finishes in his last ten starts. He owns competitive numbers and is a solid contender stalking the pace. 

#8 Gabo’s Macondo (3-1) won a couple of claiming turf routes at Golden Gate Fields last year. He figures to attend the pace. 

#3 Go Time (6-1) invades from Southern California and the late runner might be able to rally for a share under Scott Stevens.
