Saturday matinee, November 9
Race 2: No. 1 RT Earstine … has never missed the trifecta ticket in seven career starts wearing the red blanket.
Race 5: No. 8 Flying Monett … just missed last time out, should steal several lengths early in race and hold on.
Race 8: No. 4 WW’s Tear Down … look for the grade dropper to jet to an early lead and prevail in ‘A’ company.
Race 9: No. 1 Cry Australia … midtracker has been very consistent lately, and prefers breaking from the inside.
Race 14: No. 8 Kiowa AK Easy … draws favorable box for the short sprint, will be in the mix early and has finish.
WVGOBA Middle Distance Stake Final Analysis – Saturday matinee Race 11
RACE ANALYSIS: Will DB’s Sweet Leaf repeat littermate DB’s Blast’s sweep in the WVGOBA Juvenile in September? Possibly, but Destiny Wookie may have a say in the outcome.
The frontrunners appear to be Ready Two Punch and Wild Maddie Jo. Look for Destiny Wookie and DB’s Sweet Leaf to pick up the chase early and eventually overhaul the leaders in the homestretch.
Coming late will be Omega Miss and Mac’s Gibbs.
Go with a $1 trifecta, 1 / 2, 4, 5, 8 and 2 / 1, 4, 5, 8.
Saturday evening, November 9
Race 3: No. 6 TK Black Knight … look for the grade dropper to hit the lid and rush up into contention early.
Race 5: No. 1 Wise Style … just missed last time out, expect another big break and strong rush to the first turn.
Race 7: No. 1 Rough It Up … has some age but also some back class, a good trifecta/superfecta ticket play.
Race 8: No. 1 Kiowa Superangel … should get down to the turn in nice position to get part of the trifecta ticket.
Race 12: No. 2 AMF Royal Lee … frontrunner boxed in a nice spot to once again pop the box and take the lead.
