Tonight, there is a 16-race card set to go at Northfield Park and the headliners are state bred 2-year-olds competing in the Ohio Fair Championships. The $1 Early Pick 4 begins is Race 7 and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Designers Specs (1/1)-Is a perfect 13-13 and has raced at Nfld one time before tonight. Hasn't trotted faster but than 158.3 but may have to do so to keep the unbeaten streak alive.
4-Boujee Girl (3-1)-Winner of 7 races in 12 starts has a 159 mark at DTN. Shows only one break and appears to have the best chances of knocking off the chalk.
2-Shehitthehighnote (3-1)-Comes off a sharp win starting in the 2nd tier. Competitive filly has won 14 of 32 starts and should be in the mix versus this crew.
6-Tiny Bit Of Sky (12-1)-Has been used hard in last 2 starts at Dela and has the gate speed to get a close up seat. Filly likes to win and has taken pictures in 15 of 43 starts.
7-Treasurethosechips (7-1)-Has won 2 of 5 starts at Nfld and comes off a win here on 10/3. Like #6, knows how to win notching victories in 13 of 31 starts.
2-Electric Ridge (9/5)-Drops and fits better with this group. Has taken a 156.2 mark at Nfld, winner of 6 of 18 this year should be a player.
3-Cell Service (7-1)-Was a winner in first start for new barn, right here on 10/6. Will probably need a lifetime best to win tonight, but will take a shot the upswing continues at a nice price.
5-Mr Ds Rock (2-1)-At Nfld on 10/6 got on the engine and didn't look back to win. Pet Rock 3-year-old will be difficult to beat if gets the top and controls the pace. Last score was in a quick 152.1.
6-Cody Hanover (7/2)-This is the other possibility in what appears to be a 2-horse race. Has shown a 151.3 race time. Could be right behind #5 and catch a nice pocket trip. Does have a 0-3 record at Nfld but that could change tonight.
Race 7) 2,4
Race 8) 2,6,7
Race 9) 2,3
Race 10) 5,6
Total Ticket Cost) $24 for $1.00
