SPOTLIGHT PICKS


Remington Park - Race #8

  • #3 Smack Attack
  • #1 American Made
  • #7 Gold Vermilion

Race Summary

  • #3 Smack Attack:Made a solid late move for second last out in what was his only turf start; stays on the grass and doesn't have to improve much.
  • #1 American Made:Was the bottom end of a three-horse photo at Canterbury last out and broke his maiden over this course in 2018; lightly raced 6-year-old has a good chance here.
  • #7 Gold Vermilion:Was a clear winner here last out and was claimed by Keen; can be tough in his return.

Final Thoughts

  • Smack Attack was impressive in his turf debut last out and can benefit from that experience.

Arlington - Race #8

  • #4 Midnight Blue Note
  • #10 Royal Commish
  • #1 Kennesaw

Race Summary

  • #4 Midnight Blue Note:Some of these might be capable of something just a bit better than him, but he's a reliable type who loves this turf course, and he looks likely enough to hold form and handle these.
  • #10 Royal Commish:Toyed with putting this one on top, as he has a high enough ceiling to be a factor with these at a price if he brings his best game from off the pace. Could see him drafting into a decent spot.
  • #1 Kennesaw:He's fast enough to be on the splits early, but he could get a tricky kind of trip from the rail draw with a couple of other forward players lined up here. Capable, but I'm not willing to take too short a price from this draw while stepping out of 3yo company to face a much deeper group of older horses today.

Final Thoughts

  • Midnight Blue Note almost always shows up over the local footing, and he might be the right kind of key horse in a competitive race. I'll also try to get Royal Commish in the frame with a few of the logical horses.
