  • Updated: July 30, 2014 - 8:03 PM

A look at Thursday's card at the Shakopee track:

Post time: 6:30 p.m.

Best bet: Flyin Lizard (1st). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4 (6th): 2,3,5/5,6,7,8/1,2,11/1,9,11, $54.00.

Race 1: 250 yards. 2-year-olds. Maiden claiming $12,500. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Flyin Lizard (Vazquez, Hardy)122/6-5

2: Fantastic Attitude (Swiontek, Goodsell)122/12-1

3: Jam N Four Speed (Frink, Miller)122/10-1

4: Cierra Jade (Torres, Hop)122/4-1

5: Cartels Secret (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/8-1

6: Fightin White (Smith, Hunt)122/12-1

7: Sweet Corona Jr. (Olesiak, Johnson)122/5-1

8: Super Cleat (Martinez, Miller)122/15-1

FLYIN LIZARD appears to be best on paper, with speed numbers towering over field. CIERRA JADE could improve with more relaxed effort. JAM N FOUR SPEED is the lone first-time starter in field.

Race 2: 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $20,000. Purse: $14,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Hold the Wire (Eikleberry, Diodoro)123/9-5

2: Miswaski’s Pac (Shepherd, Oberlander)119/10-1

3: Erin Prairie (Hamilton, Berndt)123/5-2

4: Sense of Duty (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/6-1

5: A. K. Echo (A. Canchari, Hop)119/3-1

6: Friarcracker (Butler, Bravo)119/8-1

HOLD THE WIRE drops in from maiden special weight with good early foot starting off the rail. Doesn’t need the lead but will be right up there. A.K. ECHO will come out firing stepping up in class after narrowly missing last two out. ERIN PRAIRIE could prove tough if adjusts to footing on the dirt after transferring from the synthetic track at Arlington Park.

Race 3: 7½ furlongs. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Number One Gal (Martin, House)121/8-1

2: Acarpian (Stevens, Diodoro)121/8-5

3: Grayrock (A. Canchari, Turco)121/8-1

4: Wild Luna (Shepherd, Turco)123/5-1

5: Western Wonder (Hamilton, Offolter)121/3-1

6: Ciao Valentina (Dieguez, Pfeifer)121/12-1

7: Three Cuties (P. Canchari, Holder)121/12-1

8: Laura Beasley (Ordaz, McFarlane)121/12-1

WESTERN WONDER is likely pace-setter who will try to pull the mild upset with jockey Hamilton aboard in gate-to-wire fashion. Favorite ACARPIAN is the one to beat and fend off with late closing kick. GRAYROCK gets class relief dropping in from allowance races and now gets Alex Canchari as the pilot.

Race 4: 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Figtown Rambler (Butler, Robertson)118/6-1

2: Schindlers Risk (A. Canchari, Scott)123/30-1

3: G Road (Delorme, Kirby)118/20-1

4: Vanderboom Ridge (Rivera, Bravo)118/6-1

5: Sweet Stuff (Olesiak, Donlin)123/12-1

6: Tundra Leap (Ordaz, Silva)118/5-1

7: Trouble’smyname (Olesiak, Turco)118/6-1

8: Rock of Faith (Eikleberry, Lund)118/12-1

9: Blue Star Cat (Keith, Biehler)118/8-1

10: Bluffs Edge (Goodwin, Donlin)118/15-1

11: Stealthy Traveler (Martin, Peters)118/9-2

12: Castlederg (Velazquez, Scherer)118/10-1

13: Deliberate Haste (Olesiak, Peters)123/20-1

14: Kite (Stevens, Harty)118/4-1

VANDERBOOM RIDGE ran a well-meant effort in lone career start last out at Ellis Park and now gets new trainer Bravo, who does well sending out his new acquisitions. TUNDRA LEAP will be the late closing threat leaving after just missing last out. TROUBLE’SMYNAME showed brief early speed before fading in lone turf start. Could find himself on the lead at a big price in this wide-open affair.
