Lake Avenue getting nailed by Bell’s the One cost the Ductor his sleep last night. Not the best card today, but the Ductor has a couple up his sleeve. Skip.
Race 4: 6½ Furlongs. S.MC 25000
#4 Marc’s Humor (12/1) – Dropping in class today, he’s done some running in each start and will get a fast dirt track for the first time. He was bumped hard at the start last time and couldn’t show his early speed. He can take a big step forward with a clean trip and there is nothing to beat in here.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. F.OC 80000n2x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Malibu Mischeif (8/1) – With the Chad Brown entry coming in off long layoffs, they are a play against for the Ductor. Switching back to her preferred surface today, this speed demon ran very well setting a wicked pace from the rail last time. If she can clear #10 Anna’s Fast (8/1) early she’s tough to pass in the stretch.
