The headliners at Scioto Downs tonight roll in Race 13 and Race 14. The first feature is the Charlie Hill Memorial Trot with a $220,000 purse. Next up is the Jim Ewart Memorial Pace which has a $440,000 purse. The Late Pick 4 starts in Race 11 and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Rosemary Rose-Will use this Burke trainee at 5-1 in the ML, might trip out from the inside and likes ScD.
3-Feelin Red Hot-Yonker's invader loves to win and deserves respect, although is 0-12 at ScD but Gingras helps.
9-Big Bad Jane-Will need some luck from 2nd tier, thinking Noble is a pilot that can work a trip and keep in the hunt.
1-Dancin Yankee-2nd ML chalk likes the engine and should get it. Page will look to get one soft quarter and hang on.
4-Sectionline Bigry-Has won 9 of 19 here and is in sharp form, 9/5 chalk looks the part and should be tough.
5-Mission Accepted-Will excuse break at the fair, is no slouch, will need best but can handle ScD, using at 8-1 in ML.
7-Atlanta-Parked mile in Maple Leaf and was great. Question is how she will handle the track in 1st start at ScD.
8-Guardian Angel As-8/5 in the ML, and having a big year, will use and shoot against from this post in 1st ScD start.
1-Jimmy Freight-Should be some start and Jimmy could be leading or 2nd on 1st turn, a player at 6-1 in the ML.
2-McWicked-Versatile champ, usually makes most of a good post draw, best to respect and should be a square price.
5-This Is The Plan-The wild card, had pace in last but Gingras had steering issues, may blast out and will use instead of Lather Up.
Race 11) 2,3,9
Race 12) 1,4
Race 13) 5,7,8
