04-27-2020: Will Rogers Downs

Race 2:  (3) Brew Casa

Has 3 runner up placings at the distance out of 6 races and 1 second at the track, has the best early AND late speed, just missed 12 days ago, and this is the 3rd race off a layoff where K. Broberg has won 106 out of 404 races. Looks very hard to beat here. At 2-1, a Win bet.

Race 9:  (3) Misty Blue

Three out of 5 wins at the distance and 2 out of 3 wins at the track, just missed 24 days ago finishing 2nd only 0.8 lengths behind the winner, has by far the best early speed, worked 4F 9 days ago in a blazing 46.0, M. Garcia winning at 20% last 2 weeks, and M. Maker has won 21.6% out of 365 races with beaten favorites. Should have enough speed to hold off the late charging (6) Charming Lady. At 7/2 a great Win bet.

Race 6:  (3) Romantic Gizmo

Today's best bet is an 8-1 ML horse, has a place and show out of 3 races at the distance, a race over the track, by far the best early speed, raced 17 days ago and had an awful race, today dropping in class, worked 3 days ago at 3F in a very fast 36.4, has an "E" running style that has won 50% of 129 races of this type, and finally, Centeno on board winning 47% of his mounts in last 2 weeks. Given the odds a fantastic Win bet.

Race 8:  (5) Bird Map

One win out of 2 races at the track, no races at the distance, won last race 13 days ago, claimed, going longer today and moving up in class. Edgar Zayas on board, has lots of early speed and best closing speed figure of any horse in here. J. Saffie has won 35.2% out of 182 races with first race after a claim, and 25.5% out of 55 races with Maiden winners last time out. Set to repeat and with 7/2 odds a value Win bet.

Race 6:  (4) Hoboken

Has 3 second place finishes out of 3 races at the distance, none at the track, D. Cabrera has won 29% of races in the last 2 weeks, raced 48 days ago but has 2 workouts in last 2 weeks, dropping in class, and has the best closing speed. K. Broberg has won 23.4% out of 640 races off a layoff, 32.1% out of 249 with drops in class, and 27.8% with beaten favorites. At 5/2 a solid Win bet.

Race 4:  (3) Nocturnal Mission

Has a win and show out of 3 races at this distance and placed in only race at this track. Has so much more speed than any other horse in this race, dropping in class (R. Diodoro has won 32.8% out of 183 races), going sprint to route (23.6% out of 258 races), and ran a really nice race 14 days ago, finishing 2nd, 1/2 length behind the winner, and Ty Kennedy has won over 25% of races in both, the last 14 days as well as last 90 days. At even odds a strong Win bet!

Race 7:  (9) Put Position

Placed in the only race at this distance, ran very poorly 1/2 furlong longer 36 days ago, but, S. Becker is dropping him in class (26.9% out of 26 races), third off a layoff (29.8% out of 104 races), turf to dirt (23.9% out of 46 races), and is over 25% in 293 claiming races. The (4) Brooke's All Mine will be a tough foe but I believe this is a perfect setup for Put Position. At 6-1, a high value Win bet.

Race 5:  (11) Holy Meister

T. Gaffalione has won 25% of his races in the last 2 weeks, horse has been in the money 2 out of 3 at the distance, 4 out of 5 at the track, 4 out of 5 on turf, has tons of speed, and M. Casse has won 24.7% out of 326 races with beaten favorites. Last race was 58 days ago, but, the horse has 4 decent workouts in the last 35 days, last being only 7 days ago. I believe this can be a wire-to-wire win and at 7/2 a value Win bet.
