Rosecroft Raceway has a 13-race card scheduled with the feature coming in Race 11, an Open Handicap Trot with a $10,000 purse. The 0.50 Pick 5 sequence starts in Race 7 and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Toms Titan-Tried a different plan, got on the engine and almost lasted, that makes the 8-year-old a use here.
4-Dancing On A Star-In a spot to get a stalking trip and if pace is quick could close fastest of all.
7-By A Time-Drops and looking for better in 4th start off a long rest, but is trip dependent and may leave.
1-Spinout-Last 2 trips were not the best but has been trying hard and now draws back inside, best to respect.
2-Tidewater Titan-Seems to do best work when on the engine or close to it, can get sucked around and trip out.
6-Pansformative-Won on Wednesday in a determined effort, now comes right back and could take another picture.
1-Makin Money Fast-Last raced on 9/22, but barn has been going good, a player if all sytsems on go.
7-Dance On The Beach-Captured 1st win at RcR on 9/29, and comes off a scratch but like #1, beware if ready.
1-Jack Quick-Just missed from the 9-hole, steps-up but fits again and post relief should help chances.
7-Beammeupscottie-Raced near the lead with quick fractions and nipped #1, should be in the hunt again.
7-Home'n Dry-Hasn't raced since 9/22, but if ready will likely leave and get the top or 2-hole behind #8.
8-Fashion Smile-5/2 chalk won last week at this class from 8-hole as odds-on choice on the engine. May follow same script.
Race 7) 3,4,7
Race 8) 1,2,6
Race 9) 1,7
Race 10) 1,7
Race 11) 7,8
Total Ticket Cost) $36 for $0.50
