Post time: 1:30 p.m. Best bet: Hes A Preacher (6th race). Best play: Win/Place/Show (11th) on Hurricane Houston, $6.00.
1st race 1 mile, 70 yards. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $11,400. (#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds) 1/Traffic Skier (Keith, Hanson) 123 6-1 2/Three Desperadoes (Bell, Danger) 123 12-1 3/Slyding By (Trimble, Johnson) 119 10-1 4/Big Cheer (Velazquez, Scherer) 123 6-1 5/Sir Ghazi (Delorme, Porter) 123 15-1 6/Manlee Spirit (P. Canchari, Peters) 118 10-1 7/My Other Brother (Butler, Rhone) 119 12-1 8/C J Mamas Boy (Riggs, Robertson) 123 7-2 9/Musical Deputy (Franco, Silva) 119 5-1 10/Premodixon (Dieguez, Pfeifer) 119 4-1 MUSICAL DEPUTY should be lone speed going the distance stretching out to win. Slight concern in quick comeback having raced Thursday. SLYDING BY too stretches out and pedigree suggests that added distance shouldn't be a problem. THREE DESPERADOES and MY OTHER BROTHER threw in the towel in same race last out but maybe one could regain previous form and pull the upset.
2nd race 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $13,000. 1/I'm L W (Garnett, Sanda) 123 15-1 2/British Fleet (Shino, Corcoran) 123 5-1 3/Shadow Edge (Riggs, Kirby) 123 6-1 4/Big Kenny (Butler, Natale) 123 10-1 5/Derby One Thirty (Prado, Addicott) 123 30-1 6/Eyeseeyou (Walker, Jr., Corcoran) 120 8-1 7/Cape Town Dancer (Delorme, Donlin) 120 12-1 8/Jolly Boat (P. Canchari, Bethke) 115 20-1 9/Kalico Cowboy (Trimble, Rhone) 123 8-1 10/Hwy Onetwentyeight (Arroyo, Porter) 120 9-2 11/Great Bam (Goodwin, Brinson) 123 4-1 12/Indy N Mission (Castro, Fauchald) 123 20-1 GREAT BAM hasn't raced since April but training sessions with trainer Brinson seem to suggest this guy is cranked to go. HWY ONETWENTYEIGHT cuts back in distance after winning last out showing decent early speed. BRITISH FLEET had five silver medals at Prairie Meadows, so change of scenery might be the answer to get the gold.
3rd race 6 1/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $3,500. Purse: $9,000. 1/Estrella de Oro (Franco, Silva) 120 20-1 2/Syd Licious (Riggs, McShane) 120 5-1 3/Redneck Richie (Keith, Biehler) 120 6-1 4/He Is (Velazquez, Hamilton) 120 6-1 5/Inviting Nobody (Castro, Rosin) 117 8-1 6/Flying by the Pole (Dieguez, Bethke) 120 20-1 7/Tahkodha Bill (Trimble, Hanson) 123 10-1 8/Peckinpah (Delorme, Kirby) 120 8-1 9/Slew City Gold (Stevens, Rhone) 120 12-1 10/Cubfanbudman (Butler, Riecken) 120 3-1 11/Alex's Tomcat (Morales, Rarick) 120 30-1 12/Julian Love (Prado, Rosin) 120 15-1 CUBFANBUDMAN drops in class off the turf and should be tough to beat. Won two back in dirt sprint drawing away from the field. REDNECK RICHIE has won at this tricky distance and is usually in the mix. SYD LICIOUS comes off place finish in route race and now gets jockey Riggs, who is leading in wins and is fighting for the title.
4th race 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $10,000. 1/Chatty Lou (P. Canchari, L. Canchari) 118 6-1 2/Stinging (Delorme, Biehler) 123 10-1 3/Brite Dreamer (Franco, Silva) 123 5-1 4/Lucky Lehman (Stevens, McShane) 123 7-2 5/Wentzville Man (Prado, Schindler) 123 10-1 6/Roger's Star (Trimble, Miller) 119 30-1 7/Grey Stream (Velazquez, Scherer) 119 12-1 8/Shawcolataddiction (Walker, Jr., Corcoran) 122 5-1 9/Sir Validator (Shino, House) 123 3-1 10/Name Dropper (Dieguez, Davis, Jr) 122 5-1 LUCKY LEHMAN led briefly last out but was outfinished and had to settle for place honors at a huge price. Should improve with confidence off that effort. BRITE DREAMER stretches out with good early speed and is the probable front-runner to catch. Bred well to run longer. SIR VALIDATOR ran wide and finished behind our top pick last out and should be tough with better trip.
5th race 1 mile. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $15,000. 1/Dance Crazy (P. Canchari, Bethke) 114 30-1 2/Final Moment (Butler, Rhone) 119 12-1 3/Forgiven Again (Arroyo, Sweere) 119 20-1 4/Sapphire Sue (Goodwin, Cheloha) 123 3-1 5/Silent Sister (Riggs, Robertson) 119 7-2 6/Silent Copy (Delorme, Kirby) 123 8-1 7/Dancehall Roxie (Trimble, Riddle) 123 12-1 8/Minnesota Thunder (Castro, Rengstorf) 119 10-1 9/Itsahorseofcourse (Velazquez, Cole) 123 20-1 10/Parlay Vous (Rivera, Van Winkle) 123 8-1 11/Enduring Angel (Dieguez, Bethke) 119 15-1 12/Dear Fay (Bell, Robertson) 119 6-1 SILENT SISTER looks the best of the two Robertson horses who will be closing late with Riggs at the helm. SAPPHIRE SUE is another deep closer who ran four-wide last out and missed hitting the board. Entitled to move forward with clean closing kick. PARLAY VOUS returns to the lawn where she has done her best running. A must-use on exotic tickets.
6th race 5 1/2 furlongs. State-bred. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,600. 1/Blumin Lucky (Dieguez, Pfeifer) 118 12-1 2/Hes a Preacher (Velazquez, Olesiak) 118 4-5 3/Connies Glitter (Riggs, Litfin) 118 15-1 4/Let Da Cowboy Rock (Goodwin, Donlin) 118 10-1 5/Demmi's Spaz (P. Canchari, Winget) 113 15-1 6/Stormy Bull (Delorme, Pfeifer) 118 8-1 7/Jumpin Jimineys (Castro, Fauchald) 118 10-1 8/Sonny Money (Butler, Rhone) 118 6-1 9/Gloriousdemmi (Prado, Winget) 118 15-1 HES A PREACHER should win this race and has no excuses if he can't break his maiden versus this extemely weak field. SONNY MONEY debuts today but his four workouts don't scream he's ready to fire. CONNIES GLITTER might do something with positive jockey switch to Riggs.
7th race 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $13,000. 1/Beat Your Bluff (Butler, Rhone) 119 5-1 2/Third Rail (P. Canchari, Shryock) 114 12-1 3/Something Legal (Prado, Jones) 119 30-1 4/Raton Pass (Walker, Jr., Rarick) 119 20-1 5/Here Comes Henry (Castro, Weir) 119 6-1 6/Bravo Prado (Goodwin, Biehler) 119 7-2 7/Grandpa George (Riggs, Robertson) 119 4-1 8/Sweettalk'n Junior (Delorme, Donlin) 119 12-1 9/Melbas Slew (Velazquez, McKinley) 119 30-1 10/Tymaker (Bell,Lund) 119 6-1 11/Bad Boyz Halo (Trimble, Corcoran) 119 20-1 12/Beau Named Sue (Stevens, Rhone) 119 10-1 GRANDPA GEORGE has a realistic assignment of getting back-to-back wins today for the Robertson/Riggs team. Impressive victory last out getting through traffic and added distance today should be a bonus. BRAVO PRADO won last out going gate-to-wire and will attempt the same today. Needs to avoid knocking heads up front early. BEAT YOUR BLUFF should be pressing the pace. Narrowly missed last out by a nose in late gain.
8th race 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $11,000. 1/Rack Daddy (Riggs, Robertson) 121 4-1 2/Brax (Delorme, Hop) 119 15-1 3/Harley D (Butler, Oliver) 119 12-1 4/Patriate (Trimble, Johnson) 123 6-1 5/Stratos (Dieguez, Suter) 123 6-1 6/Brokeandbusted (Goodwin, Biehler) 119 12-1 7/Forest Sunrise (Velazquez, Rarick) 119 10-1 8/Geocache (Walker, Jr., Pfeifer) 121 6-1 9/Wildcatclass (Franco, Hartman) 123 8-1 10/Kela's Assault (Shino, Tracy, Jr.) 119 6-1 11/Already There (Rivera, Van Winkle) 118 10-1 RACK DADDY should get a nice stalking trip behind speedster PATRIATE and pounce with ground saving trip from the rail. Patriate is seeking his fourth straight win but task today is much tougher. STRATOS is going for three straight and will be a tough foe stalking the expected heated duel up front. Trainer Suter had a great meet with the few races he entered. FOREST SUNRISE will be dueling up front and is coming off a front running style win.
9th race 7 1/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $14-16,000. Purse: $19,500. 1/Edgerin J (Dieguez, Pate) 119 5-1 2/Don't Bluff (Bell, Robertson) 123 7-2 3/Mack's Blackhawk (Goodwin, Biehler) 121 6-1 4/Toastmaster (Butler, Rhone) 118 8-1 5/Surplus (Rivera, Van Winkle) 119 8-1 6/Tigerstark (Arroyo, Suter) 121 20-1 7/Lost Camper (Keith, Brinson) 123 9-2 8/Slew City Storm (Rhone, Arterburn) 119 10-1 9/Gallery of Storms (Walker, Jr., Corcoran) 119 12-1 10/Grandpa Roy (Delorme, Porter) 119 8-1 DON'T BLUFF will be rolling late picking up the pieces such as last race where Bell angled the gelding to the outside to get the victory. EDGERIN J is the class of the field and doesn't have to worry about Tubby Time today. GRANDPA ROY was cut off in last effort down the stretch in the same race as Don't Bluff and seeks revenge here but has slight problem in starting from the far outside.
10th race 6 furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $5,000. Purse: $11,520. 1/Awma's Diamonds (Delorme, Porter) 123 10-1 2/Cyclone Canyon (Keith, Biehler) 120 5-1 3/Emperor's Choice (P. Canchari, C. Smith) 118 30-1 4/Ideal Asscher Cut (Riggs, McShane) 120 4-1 5/Demi's Star (Trimble, Winget) 123 6-1 6/Bold Raider (Shino, Cole) 123 6-1 7/R J Trumps the Syn (Castro, McKinley) 123 30-1 8/Tahkodha Bump (Rivera, Danger) 123 5-1 9/De Bala (Morales, Brinson) 123 6-1 10/Ghazi's Patch Work (Velazquez, Litfin) 123 20-1 11/Jack Winter (Dieguez, Bethke) 123 12-1 12/Willow Parish (Arroyo, White 123 30-1 DE BALA gets the slight nod in this weak maiden field. Brinson/Morales duo have had a great meet winning at 70 percent as a team. CYCLONE CANYON should come out firing with Lori Keith aboard, who likes to push the go button out of the gate. IDEAL ASSCHER CUT invades from Prairie Meadows and seduces Riggs to ride.
11th race 1 3/8 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $13,000. 1/Blast'em (Franco, Silva) 119 4-1 2/Jix (Shino, Pfeifer) 123 9-2 3/Willie Prevail (Keith, Riddle) 119 5-1 4/Hype (Rhone, Arterburn) 119 7-2 5/Mr Good (Riggs, Robertson) 119 8-1 6/Ming Glo (P. Canchari, L. Canchari) 118 10-1 7/Poniboy Time (Castro, Riddle) 119 15-1 8/Vini Vidi Vinci (Goodwin, Corcoran) 119 6-1 9/Hurricane Houston (Bell, Porter) 119 10-1 Last race of the meet is a good one, and I also like to say thank you to all the horse players who followed my selections. Keeping with tradition, I always put $2 across the board on a longshot in the last race of the season, so let's go HURRICANE HOUSTON!
