Race 4: I’llhandalthecash (#8)

  • Ran well when using stalking tactics two back, beating the same horse that My Galina defeated in her debut.
  • Did well to lead them into the last furlong last time in a race that fell apart in the late stages.
  • Should work out a great trip sitting just off the three speeds in here.

Race 8: Day Dayenu (#1)

  • Is bred to be precocious as a daughter of Into Mischief, and she’s out of multiple stakes-winning dam.
  • Has looked very good in some recent workouts, building upon her impressive sales workout from March.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jorge Abreu is 5 for 11 (45%, $4.34 ROI) with first time starters on the dirt.

7-2 on ML


Race 11: Risky Mischief (#6)

  • Was impressive in her debut, setting a fast pace after breaking a step slowly from the rail.
  • It’s a good sign to see Jose Ortiz stay here in a race where he clearly had other options.
  • Is drawn well outside of her main pace rival Mundaye Call.

6-1 on ML
