RACE 2 – Pick #7 Dance the Day Away (8-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
After tiring badly in an off the turf race at Belterra, Dance the Day Away drops to the lowest level he competed at in his life for his local debut. He has a record of 5-2-0-1 in his career on all weather surfaces, with those races being at Turfway Park. He gets the services of Addiel Ayala, who is returning to the level of riding from couple years ago since reuniting with his agent from that time Doug Salvatore. Dance the Day Away has done his best racing when stalking the early pace and he should be able to do that versus these.
RACE 5 – Pick #7 Owlette or #9 Artie’s Princess (3-1 or 2-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Normally we just use one horse, but in this case, we are not sure which horse Wesley Ward will run. Ward trains both horses and a veteran Mario Pino named to ride both. Owlette has a record of 6-4-1-1 on the Tapeta all weather surface at Woodbine while Artie’s Princess is 4-3-1-0 on the all weather at Woodbine. Ward will probably scratch one and go with the other, but whomever remains will be tough to beat here.
RACE 8 – Pick #11 Art of the Dream (12-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Sometimes a change of scenery is all that is needed ad that might e the case with Art of the Dream. Coming into this year, Art of the Dream had a record of 10-0-4-4 on all weather surfaces. He made hs seasonal debut with a new trainer, Nicholas Sideris, and he came off the pace to finally get the victory. He steps up to the non winners of three lifetime level while remaining at the same price and stretching out slightly in distance. There looks to be enough pace in the race for him to close into and gain the victory versus these.
