Hoosier Park has a 13-race card set for tonight featuring Indiana three-year-olds in Sires Stakes action. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 10, and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 10

1-Soaring Now (3-1)-Falling just short to Ponda Warrior is nothing to be embarrassed about. Has a shot to take top honors versus this crew in the 3rd start off the bench. Drawing the rail shouldn't hurt chances.
5-Fulfullnmydestiny (8/5)-Raced from the back in the 1st start of the season and came the back half in 54.3, the last panel in 26.1. That was a successful performance in the 1st race since 10-22 and will be tough to beat with a top effort.

Race 11

3-Dalby Hanover (8-1)-Finished a well-beaten 6th after being parked the entire opening half in its season debut. Putnam shouldn't have an issue working a better trip here and will swing for a price if Ponda has an off-night.
4-Ponda Warrior (9/5)-Looking for the 3rd straight win in the 3rd start as a 3-year-old. Some symmetry and looks like the colt to beat with a post edge over the one below.
8-JK Victory (2-1)-Joined the Burke barn after arriving from M1 and drew off by 4 lengths to score at 3/5. That was only the 2nd win in 8 lifetime starts but it looks like there is more in the tank.

Race 12

1-Rockin Speed (5/2)-This will be a good test but likes to race at the top of the stack and that plan could happen. Has hit the board in 26 of 50 starts at HoP with 8 pictures and deserves respect.
5-General Dolan (9/2)-Has been facing tougher and this is a much better spot to snag the 5th win of the year. Has the speed to get on the engine and Tetrick should be aggressive versus this group.

Race 13

1-Colonel Bayama (8-1)-Four-year-old makes its 3rd start for the JL Adam barn and fits in a contest that isn't easy to read. Loses Bates but Putnam could work an efficient trip and this race could play out for a price shot.
2-Ima Real Ladys Man (15-1)-Not expecting 15-1 but is only 1-15 this year and Bates lands here sticking with Smith. Has been stuck outside in the last 3 starts and was used early in miles. Tonight's post draw could make a winning difference in a race without a standout.
8-Uncmprmising Z Tam (6-1)-Drops and was a beaten chalk the last time facing this kind. That effort came on a "good" track where this veteran's record is only 1-24. Best to not overlook tonight.
10-Odds On Osiris (5/2)-Drops to the softest spot of the meet, the 2nd tier isn't a great starting spot but #1 and #2 do have some gate speed. This program chalk bagged its last win on 4-24 when facing this kind and could be a good steer away from another picture.
