#3 DELIGHTFUL DANA takes a class drop (-2) this evening, and is both the overall speed and pace profile leader in this allowance field racing at, or about, tonight's distance of a mile and seventy yards on the dirt, and has hit the board in each of her last five starts, with four of those efforts also qualifying as "POWER RUNS." #1 BANKER BAILOUT has posted a quartet of "POWER RUN BOARD HITS" in her last five outings, including back-to-back "POWER RUN WINS" in her last two starts. Jockey Clinton Potts has been in her irons on 8 previous occasions, hitting the board in 5 of those "adventures," winning 4 times, en route to a 154% return on investment in the process, and is back tonight for his 9th ride.
BEULAH PARK RACE #4: The 9-2 shot, #7 AKAPESCHE, takes a class drop (-2), and has nice overall speed for this mile test on the dirt.
FINGER LAKES RACE #7: #7 READING GROUP is 4-1 in the morning line, and has substantially better speed ( 13) sprinting at 6.0 furlongs on the dirt than the favorite, #5 PAWNEE RED.
