Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: MIDNIGHT SHARK
Odds: 7-2

Race 1 Comments:  WE NEVER GETACOLT has looked better in recent weeks for low percentage barn racing overland through fast paces and not fading badly in last two and scoring a brave uncovered win (his first in two years) three back. Edge on best. DONAU wired similar, including top win, last time and looms the danger to repeat.

Race 3 Comments:  BOLT OF LUCK broke early last time losing all chance, raced overland the entire mile and never got close against tough field. Prior were two good place finishes in the slop. Gets the pole and figures to be well placed with clean trip.

Race 4 Comments:  DELIGHT FASHION showed little in the slop with catch-driver last time. Drops, retains JD and looks worth a shot.

Race 5 Comments:  MAN HE CAN SKOOT paced a :58.3 final half rallying wide in the slop to just miss. Two back was a tough parked out trip, also in the slop tiring late in good try. Gets first decent post in a while and gets the nod.
