Running Aces has a 9-race card scheduled with the first post coming at 7:00 CST. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 6. The sequence has a $3,000 guaranteed pool, and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Bringoverthemoney (5/2)-This veteran is no stranger to the Aces winner's circle and now has a needed a start under his belt. Drops to a soft spot and should be a main threat.
7-Bordogna (7/2)-Drops after racing well in a quick mile in its Aces season debut. The Anfinson barn has posted 36% winner over the last 30 days and should relish the company.
4-Pecorino (7/2)-Has battled better at Aces and won, now makes the 2nd start of the meet. Has 2 wins in 8 races here and there isn't much form in this field. Should be in the hunt and appears more ready than others for a big effort.
4-Mind Yown Business (3-1)-Had a big try in last from the 8-hole versus this kind to finish 2nd. Could be better tonight and hopefully won't be over bet.
5-Mandeville (4-1)-Came 3rd in the same race as the one above and should be better prepared after a race over the track. Plano got on the point in last and could try the same game plan here.
8-Pridecrest (5-1)-This 10-year-old still knows how to win and now makes its Aces debut. Has done well here hitting the board in 36 of 56 with 15 wins. Has been off since 5-1 and that may help the price. Could take a picture if ready for a big try.
5-Impressive Art (5-1)-Got in a needed start on 5-17 versus better and now Roland takes the lines. Fits well with this crew and could be sitting on a big try.
9-Bobs Time (12-1)-Will take a swing here and play against the program chalk #7 who is 2 for the last 49. This 5-year-old has hit the board in 7 of 16 at Aces with 3 pictures and now drops to a more competitive level. There should be an honest pace and Magee could be rolling hard down the lane.
