Race 1

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: ARCH CREDIT*
Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: SWEET ROYALTY
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: HOT SUMMER KNIGHT
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: LADY EAGLE
Odds: 7-2

Race 1 Comments:  ARCH CREDIT chased a fast pace in race he likely needed in Catskill debut. Couldn’t handle the “off” going at Pocono prior after scoring a fast 1:55.4 score off pocket trip four back. 5-year-old will likely be tougher this time and may be able to outleave the inside bunch here. Upset call. SWEET ROYALTY is in sharp form and gets the rail.

 

Race 2

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: PARTAGAS BLUE CHIP
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: LADYBELUCKYTONITE
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: QUEEN CORA
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: K D GA GA
Odds: 7-2

Race 2 Comments: PARTAGAS BLUE CHIP isn’t exactly a win machine packing a 2 for 49 career resume which includes an 0 for 35 2019 slate but has looked much better in recent weeks including a strong finishing show effort from 8-hole in latest in which he paced a 1:28 final three quarters. Finds a good spot against a weak group and looks ready to snap 35-race losing streak.

 

Race 3

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: LETTUCEROCKU A**
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: NAKED CITY
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: GLENVIEW PAISLEY
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: A PLUS HANOVER
Odds: 4-1

Race 3 Comments: LETTUCEROCKU A pushed hard but couldn’t clear despite pacing :27.3 third panel, didn’t fade badly losing by two lengths despite the trip. Takes key drop off that effort and gets the rail.

 

Race 4

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: DRAIN DADDY
Odds: 5-1

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: ROAD UNTRAVELED
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: ALL NET
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 9
Horse Name: GOTTA LOVE HIM
Odds: 3-1

Race 4 Comments: DRAIN DADDY had a tough first over trip in local debut, didn’t fade badly. Drops off that effort and may be able to overcome outside draw for strong connections.

Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 3

Odds: 7-2

Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: NATALIE HANOVER
Odds: 4-1

Race 5 Comments: LUCKY PROMESSES meets slightly weaker in second Catskill try for strong barn. Draws 8-hole but gets Merton and has speed to leave the gate.
