Track:  Turf Paradise
Race: 3 - Post Time: 3:43pm ET

Monday Laurel Park Best Bet Winner: Full of Zip ($4.20)

Tuesday's 3rd race from Turf Paradise (11-14-17) is a $15,000
Allowance event for 3-year-olds an up which have never won three races. They will be traveling one mile on the turf course. 

#4 Sir Matador (5-2) can beat the chalk in this spot if he gets involved early. He had no shot as a 103-1 outsider in a downhill sprint at Santa Anita Oct 15 and runner-up Banze No Oeste won the turf route finale at Del Mar Nov 12. He won two of six local turf starts earlier this year under today's rider Bourdieu and he attended the pace in both wins. There is not much pace in the paper race and the early lead is there for the taking.  

#2 Most Determined (4-5) got no pace help and settled for the place as the heavy favorite vs. similar local turf foes Oct 30 and the race shape looks the same in this spot. The two-time local turf winner will try to get involved late.   

The Plays:

#4 to win

Exacta 4-2
