RACE 3 – PICK: #6 Salesgirl (10-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Salesgirl cuts back in distance and has been working steadily since her seasonal debut when closing to finish second in a two turn sprint at Delta Downs in February. Her best racing happens when she comes off the pace and there looks to be enough speed for her to close into against these rivals. Her regular jock Odilon Martinez, who was aboard when she broke her maiden in August at this track and distance retains the mount.
RACE 4 – PICK: #4 Miltontown (4-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Robertino Diodoro has horses all over North America and he isn’t afraid to ship to another track to find a good spot for one of his trainees. Miltontown is based at Evangeline Downs and Diodoro ships him here since he has two allowance wins this year and isn’t eligible for the Non-winners of two, but he could run for the $25,000 claiming tag instead. Diodoro’s main jock at Evangeline, Ty Kennedy, comes in for the mount and Diodoro the past year wins at 28% when using Kennedy. The horse has been favored in three of his last four starts and he is versatile enough to set or stalk the early pace.
RACE 7 – PICK: #6 Mayan Ghost (3-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Mayan Ghost is another Diodoro trainee shipping in from Evangeline Downs. In his last start he tired badly at Oaklawn Park for maiden claiming $12,500. He now drops to the maiden claiming $5,000 level while making his first start in almost three months and for Diodoro, who wins at 37% with horses first time under his care and dropping in claiming price.
