Johnny Love's Canterbury Park line for Friday, Aug. 31

  • Updated: August 31, 2012 - 6:36 AM
Post time: 7 p.m. Best bet: Unzapped (9th race). Best play: Pick 3 (7th): 1,3,5,6/1,3,4,5,6,9/5, $24.00.
 
1st race 71/2 furlongs. Turf. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $20,000. (#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds) 1/Burning Fuhry (Velazquez, Bethke) 118 15-1 2/London Blue (Delorme, Porter) 115 12-1 3/Parris Island Babe (Stevens, Rhone) 115 15-1 4/G G's Silent Siege (Butler, Rhone) 115 10-1 5/Bandini Moon (Shino, House) 118 10-1 6/Divine Doris (Trimble, Corcoran) 115 20-1 7/Takethisdemmi (Prado, Winget) 118 30-1 8/Ebony Oro (Rivera, Natale) 115 6-1 9/De Novo (Bell, Robertson) 115 4-1 10/Bad Boy Charlie (Keith, Biehler) 118 5-1 11/Pumpkin Pusher (Dieguez, Bethke) 118 12-1 12/Bluegrass Lucy (Goodwin, Corcoran) 115 7-2 Good betting race with this large group of maidens who have yet to set foot on the grass. Should get a nice price for LONDON BLUE, who showed early speed in lone start before fading. Draw to inside tonight will be a bonus. DE NOVO will most likely be post time favorite for the Robertson/Bell connections alone. BAD BOY CHARLIE and PUMPKIN PUSHER have decent turf pedigrees but posts 10 and 11 have a total of one win this summer in this turf sprint.
 
2nd race 71/2 furlongs. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $15,000. 1/Kelleys Marq (Delorme, Kirby) 123 10-1 2/Sheer Trick (Walker Jr., Brinson) 120 6-1 3/Noah and O (Riggs, Padilla) 120 4-1 4/Barcelona Kid (Castro, Rengstorf) 120 10-1 5/Mister Wu (Arroyo, McFadden) 123 20-1 6/Bourbon by the Bay (Prado, Jones) 123 15-1 7/Aikman (Goodwin, Brinson) 120 5-1 8/Arvindra (Stevens, Rhone) 120 15-1 9/Six Pack Attack (Velazquez, Martinez) 123 12-1 10/Dead Cat Bounce (Shino, Tibbitts) 120 12-1 11/Franks On Fire (Butler, Riecken) 123 8-1 12/Pentecost (Rivera, Oliver) 123 6-1 Have to go with the favorite NOAH AND O, who split rivals last out against tougher to get up for the win. Place finisher won next time out. AIKMAN should be the main threat if he can regain form from two back, where he ran second after trying to lead the field the whole distance. Has two good works coming in. SHEER TRICK is Brinson's other horse who puts the blinker on here after drifting in last out while failing to fire. Far outside runners FRANKS ON FIRE and PENTECOST should be in the mix.
 
3rd race 51/2 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,600. 1/Jelloshotsforjill (Castro, Riecken) 118 5-1 2/Top Vow (Butler, Bravo) 118 6-1 3/Antique Angel (Rivera, Van Winkle) 118 10-1 4/Not a Girlie Girl (Keith, Hanson) 118 8-1 5/Unbridled's Siren (Riggs, Rhone) 118 12-1 6/Shal Pal's Castle (Delorme, Fauchald) 118 15-1 7/B J's Angel (Goodwin, Scherer) 118 6-1 8/City Kid (Stevens, Rhone) 118 3-1 9/Demi's Hope (Prado, Winget) 118 30-1 10/Supreme Monique (Bell, Robertson) 118 4-1 Another fairly wide open race with this group of two-year-old fillies. CITY KID has two place finishes in three career starts and could step up to the winner's circle taking the blinkers off tonight with some experience under her belt. SUPREME MONIQUE, NOT A GIRLIE GIRL, B J'S ANGEL are first-timers who will take in some money for trainers who like to win at first asking.
 
4th race 61/2 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $5,000. Purse: $11,520. 1/Lil' Gizmo (Keith, Cole) 123 5-1 2/Demi's Bid (Aguilar, Winget) 123 5-1 3/Puma's Planet (Goodwin, Donlin) 123 5-1 4/Usana (Butler, Rhone) 120 5-1 5/East Coast Carm (Trimble, Riddle) 120 5-1 6/Dynabon (Velazquez, Wekseth) 123 5-1 7/Demi's No Trump (Prado, Winget) 120 5-1 8/Lady Driver (Delorme, Donlin) 120 5-1 9/Lucky Gem (Castro, Pfeifer) 120 5-1 USANA plunges in class after after showing little if any in five career starts. The one thing the filly does have going for her is decent early speed, which others lack in the field. Early speed has done well at this distance and she might be able to set easy fractions and hold on. LUCKY GEM comes back after seven days of rest after dull effort at a mile. Should close better on the cutback. LIL' GIZMO and PUMA'S PLANET too come back from seven days of rest and should be in the hunt down the stretch.
 
5th race 61/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $15,960. 1/Vic the Kick (Dieguez, Bethke) 121 5-1 2/Ghsot Skier (Keith, Bravo) 121 3-1 3/Midnight Bull (Butler, Rhone) 121 4-1 4/Ready to Roll (Bell, Riecken) 121 9-2 5/Francis Henry (Rivera, Bethke) 121 8-1 6/Good Guy Larry (Riggs, Scherbenske) 121 5-1 7/Desert Prize (Castro, Rengstorf) 120 8-1 8/Know No Somerset (Delorme, Donlin) 121 12-1 GOOD GUY LARRY has a few things going for him to get back on the winning side in this tricky race to handicap. With Riggs hopping back aboard, the duo should enjoy the class relief stalking the heated pace duel up front to possibly take over at a decent price. The two destined to duel are GHOST SKIER and DESERT PRIZE. Ghost Skier has won at this distance. MIDNIGHT BULL and READY TO ROLL should be dangerous in closing with the intense speed expected.
 
6th race 51/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $16,500. 1/El Seventyseven (Bell, Robertson) 123 2-1 2/Kilian's Blend (Trimble, Porter) 120 6-1 3/Two Left Shoes (Velazquez, Scherer) 120 4-1 4/Seeking the Reward (Butler, Rengstorf) 120 9-2 5/One Eyed Harry (Riggs, McShane) 120 5-1 6/Admiral Paul (Delorme, Miller) 120 8-1 7/Save Your Story (Walker Jr., Olesiak) 115 8-1 EL SEVENTYSEVEN has been sidelined since early July and should be tough with the rest and solid workouts coming in. Versatile gelding searching for his firrt win of the year will be on or near the lead coming off the rail. SEEKING THE REWARD and TWO LEFT SHOES are the logical threats who are closely matched in making late charges.
 
7th race 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $3,500. Purse: $9,000. 1/Seattle Sal (Arroyo, Porter) 123 9-2 2/Afleet Indy (Castro, Riecken) 123 8-1 3/French Moon (Velazquez, Lund) 123 5-2 4/Melo (Trimble, Johnson) 123 12-1 5/Lumpsinmyoatmeal (Riggs, Robertson) 123 5-1 6/Timetobook (Delorme, Robertson) 123 4-1 7/Mack's Monarch (Dieguez, Bethke) 123 15-1 8/Khukuri (Rivera, Van Winkle) 123 8-1 9/Cornetto (Goodwin, Danger) 123 15-1 FRENCH MOON has the best speed figures of the field and takes a class drop, making him the favorite. Might sit closer to the front with not much early group speed. LUMPSINMYOATMEAL should improve second off the layoff for the Robertson barn. TIMETOBOOK will be in his normal tracking position. He has been knocking on the door but just can't seem to finished the deal. Must use on exotic tickets.
 
8th race 11/16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $3,500. Purse: $9,000. 1/Guns Donovan (Riggs, Berndt) 123 10-1 2/Sunset Kid (Prado, McFadden) 123 20-1 3/Mogadishu (Delorme, Porter) 123 6-1 4/Mr. Rancho Vista (Butler, Martinez) 123 7-2 5/Jestintime (Stevens, Van Winkle) 123 3-1 6/Consulate (Rivera, Padilla) 123 5-1 7/Fast Deposit (Garnett, White) 123 30-1 8/No Laughing Matter (Castro, Martinez) 123 15-1 9/The Quinnster (Bell, Olesiak) 123 9-2 10/Dixie Buck (Arroyo, Litfin) 123 12-1 MR RANCHO VISTA gets the job done tonight, stealing the race up front with easy fractions with the positive jockey switch to Butler. He'll have to hold off a stampede of evenly matched horses in GUNS DONOVAN, MOGADISHU, JESTENTIME, CONSULATE and THE QUINNSTER. Deep on Pick 4 ticket.
 
9th race 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Claiming $5,000. Purse: $9,000. 1/Triple Hot Wings (Velazquez, Hemba) 120 4-1 2/Sir Gallient Vee (Garnett, Venner) 123 30-1 3/Maggie's Hero (Rivera, Litfin) 123 15-1 4/Railroad Tie (Trimble, Schindler) 120 15-1 5/Unzapped (Riggs, Robertson) 120 8-5 6/Twobuckstoomuch (Castro, Erfle) 120 6-1 7/Bjoi Brook (Dieguez, Litfin) 123 20-1 8/Thecausewaykid (Butler, Rhone) 120 6-1 9/Chief Engineer (Arroyo, Venner) 123 30-1 10/Tuff Cowboy (Keith, Biehler) 120 5-1 UNZAPPED should be well rested and tough to beat after barely missing in late surge to the wire last out in July. Has three nice works coming in for the Robertson/Riggs team. TRIPLE HOT WINGS ships up from Prairie Meadows facing tougher but with little to show. Might enjoy class relief and gets new trainer. TUFF COWBOY has two bullet drills entering for trainer Biehler, who has had his gelding on the sidelines since June. Biehler's horses excel after long layoffs.
