Sunday, December 2: Potomac Pace & Rosecroft Pick 5 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

December 2, 2018

It's show time at Rosecroft Raceway this evening as its signature race of the year, the $100,000 Potomac Pace is set to roll in Race 10. Leading trainer Ron Burke sends out morning line favorite #4-Fillibuster Hanover and #8-Rockin Ron in tonight's main event. Burke, who won the Potomac with All Bets Off in 2016 is looking to return to the winner's circle and has a big shot with Fillibuster Hanover. 

Xpressbet account holders who bet $50 on the Potomac Pace card will receive a $10 bonus. Bonus credits will be deposited into registered customer accounts by 5:00 PM ET on Wednesday, December 5th. Show wagering is excluded from this promotion. 

On Saturday at the Big M the posted 0.50 Pick 4 ticket for $48 hit for a $820 payout. Hopefully things connect again with the Pick 5 tonight that has only a 12% takeout. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track for the 0.50 Pick 5 which includes the Potomac Pace. 

Race 7 
1-Yankee Artillery-Drops to a spot to shine, should be a major player from this post. 
2-BP Burner-Will toss last, was off 21 days, gets a ++ driver change and can surprise at a square price. 

Race 8 
7-Capital Builder-Drops, fits and knows how to win. Kakaley should have this 11-time winner in 2018 in the hunt. 
9-Outstand Forever-Also drops out of Open 1, capable of winning if D. Miller can work a trip from the outside. 

Race 9 
2-Roctavius-Kakaley picks up another live drive and could put on an aggressive steer for an overdue win. 
3-Sams Triple Crown-Likes to win and should be dangerous with a decent trip. 
6-All The Cookies-Got on the engine and didn't look back in last, has the gate speed to get the top again. 
7-Slick Tony-On paper the one to beat, the class of the field, but will need a trip from this post. 

Race 10 
1-Dealt A Winner-A big threat from this post, but it could be a matter of pace if #4 gets the top. 
4-Filibuster Hanover-Rates an edge on this oval and has the gate speed to get on the engine and stay in control. 

Race 11 
1-White Rolls-Infrequent winner in '18 but does well at this track and should like the company. 
3-Toms Tornado-Honest horse steps up and if Foster finds live cover, 6-year old can pop at nice odds. 
4-Atomic Art-Will respect odds on favorite in last start, who was caught by #3 after a 2-hole trip.
