Race #1 - 3-6-7-5 Value Play #3 GET ALONG Looks like a wide open betting board in the first race on Thursday. I will take a shot with the price horse, really bad post positions in his past starts at Plainridge. Draws better and even though hasn’t been finishing well at all, still putting up 1:54 miles and should be closer today to get the job done at a nice price.
Race #2 - 2-4-7-5
Race #3 - 4-6-1-2 The 2, 4 and 6 will be the favorites in this one today. Looking for some huge value. #1 CARRACCI HANOVER hasn’t been racing well but last week finished a real nice 3rd and draws the rail, should show speed, very sneaky at a nice price.

Race #4 - 2-1-4-5
Race #5 - 5-6-4-8
Race #6 - 3-6-4-1 Best Bet #3 ALWAYS A MIKI Been facing monsters every week for 11 starts this year. Drops down just a little, still facing a tough field. Needs to fire out and make the lead like April 13th when he finished 2nd in 1:50 to the big favorite in the race. A pocket trip won’t work with this horse, needs front end and I believe will fire out today. Should get some nice value on this horse today.
Race #7 - 2-5-4-6 Best Longshot #2 SALT LIFE Nice price here, last week had the 8 hole and went right to the front end at 9-1 and almost hung on and won. Now draws better. I know he is going up in class here but fits well with this group at a great price. If BRETT BECKWITH went to the lead with him last week from 8 hole, I’m assuming he will gun him right out there from the 2 hole.
Race #8 - 7-4-8-1 2nd Best Bet #7 MY PAL JOE Has done nothing wrong this year, in great form right now. This is a good $25,000 feature race of the day and we are getting a nice 4-1 morning line. Took a week off so should be fresh and ready to roll.
Race #9 - 8-4-6-1 Value Play #8 ROCKIN' COUGAR Stuck way on the outside again, we are getting a nice price 6-1 morning line. Going back to May 4th race, ran 3rd, came from way back. I see it happening here, needs to grab some cover and put the swoop to this group.
Race #10 - 1-4-6-5 Upset Special #1 LEVEL UP Had the 8 hole two weeks in a row, now finished 3rd and 2nd. Last week went right to the lead from the 8 hole and just missed, in good form right now and draws the rail. Stepping up in class and great value in this spot as the 4 horse will be the heavy favorite dropping way down.
Race #11 - 7-5-3-1: #7 CASH VAUGHAN You might be asking yourself why am I picking the longest shot on the board in the night cap. Well past 3 starts a win and a 2nd with TODD O'DEA driving. Now we have MICHAEL STEVENSON driving, a big driver switch plus STEVENSON has brought in some huge longshots past couple of weeks with a win and most of them hitting the board. I think this horse is a must use in your Exotic wagers at a huge price.
1 Blue Knight Ivan Davies 35-1
2 Breckenridge Jay Randall 29-1
3 Golden Kronos Shawn T Gray 15-1
4 Icanflylikeanangel Aaron Merriman 3-1
5 Big Al M Matthew Athearn 3-1
6 Warrior One David Miller 4/5
