by Al Cimaglia

October 12, 2018

It's Indiana Sires Stakes Super Finals Night at Hoosier Park. There will be over $2 million in purses up for grabs during the 14-race card. Headlining the program are eight $220,000 races featuring the top two and three-year-old Indiana breds who have accumulated points to qualify for the big night. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 3-(2-year-old filly pacers)-Purse $220,00 

5-Glorious Virgin-Winner of >$185k gets Lasix for 2nd time and should be a major player. 
3-Rockn Nola-Needs a trip and should be able to get one from here, will use at 10-1 in the ML. 
8-Pure Maid-Another price shot who has had excuses, should be rolling late. 

Race 4-(3-year-old filly trotters) Purse $220,000 

6-Custom Cantab-Has been dominate versus this kind and doesn't have to chase Manchego tonight. 
1-Black Mamba As-Should be close to #6 entering the lane, could make some noise late at a square price. 
7-Red Rose Swan-Consistent filly should find a spot on the ticket. 

Race 7-(2-year-old filly pacers) Purse $220,000 

1-Grand Swan-Winner of 8 in 11 starts should be very tough especially from the wood. 
2-Measuredperfection-Has a win over #1 and tries Lasix for the 1st time. 
5-Kissesforall-Winner of 2 straight should be battling for minor spoils. 

Race 8-(3-year-old-filly pacers) Purse $220,000 

6-Letme Fly Low-Consistent filly should be a major player and 2nd time Lasix shouldn't hurt chances. 
5-Voom Or Bang-Comes off an unusual dull effort but was on an off-track. Expecting better from ML chalk. 
3-Dee Rocks-Won with 1st time Lasix in last, should be on the lead or in 2-hole, big shot. 

Race 9-(2-year-old-colts and gelding trotters) Purse $220,000 

8-Swandre The Giant-9 for 9 at HoP looks to be a clean trip away from a perfect campaign in Indiana. 
3-It's A Herbie-Has been chasing #8 much of the summer and should be the same case tonight. 
2-Trump This-Will use at 12-1 under #8 and hope he minds manners. 

Race 10-(2-year-old colts and geldings pacers) Purse $220,000 

10-Ollie's Ztam-Comes off a sharp win, doesn't need to get on the engine by the 1/4 pole, post helps the price. 
4-Frontier Telaphras-Can be forwardly placed and should be in the hunt at the wire. 
2-Out Loud-Was very consistent all year now gets Lasix for the 1st time.
