Fairgrounds: Opening Day

My second most favorite meet starts today, first is Oaklawn. A very competitive card has been put together here I go with the entire program.

First race:  7~Cadet Captain  this 7~yo gelding will be on the lead he’s 5~1~1~0 at the FG. He’s reunited with Jose Valdivia Jr who won 4 straight races with him this summer at AP. This is his third start off a refreshing.   I recommend at win~place bet & exacta box  1/7 ~ 5/7 ~ 7/10

Second race:  3~Simba’s Pride  trainer Steve Flint 23% debut MSW. Dam has 3 winners from 5 starters with 2 stakes winners. A son of Animal Kingdom so the mile & 70 will be no problem first time out. I recommend a win~place bet.

Third race:  8~Fee Do  his switch from the dirt to turf has been quite successful he’s 3~2~1~0 with a record of 2~1~1~0 at the mile distance.  Trainer Ed Johnston is 32%  46~90 days away.  I recommend a win~place bet & exacta box  1/8 ~ 2/8 ~ 3/8

Fourth race:  4~Sunny Oak  she’s 4~3~1~0 at the distance & 8~3~2~1 at the FG’s. Miguel Mena won this race last year with her by 2 lengths. I recommend a win~place bet.

Fifth race:  7~Safari Calamari  she’s having quite the year 5~2~3~0 and is 8~4~1~1 at the FG’s. At the mile distance she’s won 4 times from 9 starts.  I recommend a win~place bet & exacta box  7/3 ~ 7/10 ~ 7/11

Sixth race:  7~Stand Him Up   5~3~1~0 at the distance & 7~3~2~0 at the FG’s. Has been fresehened up for this race.  I recommend a win~place bet

Seventh race:  2~She Sang Dixie  this 2-yo miss out of Bind who’s winning at 38% with his first time starters. Her dam is 7/7 with 2 stakes winners. Coming into the race off a bullet work. I recommend a win~place bet.

Eighth race:  7~Future Ruler  has burned lots of money in his 2 starts last at .60 to the dollar. Stall adds blinkers today. I recommend a win~place bet.

Ninth race:  4~Feisty Embrace  she got on track to late in her first start vs winners~stakes company. The FG’s stretch plays right into her big closing kick. I recommend a win~place bet.

Tenth race:  5~Angelic Score  the speed of a rather paceless race. The big drop down is a bit of a concern from 25,000 to 5,000. She’s been off since Jan you’ll know her early & be crossing your fingers rooting for the wire late.

Late Pick 4 tickets races 7~10   7th: 1,2,8,9  8th: 2,5,7  9th:  1,4  10th: 5     ~~~  7th:  1,2,8,9  8th:  2,5,7  9th:  1,4  10th:  1,2

BEST BET:  4th race ~~~   4~Sunny Oak
