DELTA DOWNS Race #5
Thursday 11/06 05:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (FAST HALF) (5-2) - Grey gelding comes off a career best when he finished second at this level at Louisiana Downs on Sept. 11. It was his first off a Carl Deville claim and the veteran trainer will add blinkers for this attempt.
2nd pick: #8 (Harbor Ghost) (4-1) - He finished second in back-to-back starts last spring at Evangeline Downs and is training steadily for his return. Stalker is a major player if ready with his best.
3rd pick: #10 (Sure Can Do) (7-2) - Grey gelding is another that's finished second in two straight. Both of those came at Evangeline and the figures earned and his early speed make him a win candidate.
4th pick: #7 (Fathra) (6-1) - Debuting 3-year-old has some solid local works on view and his trainer (Keith Bourgeois) has won with an unbelievable 13 of 28 starters (46%) at this young meet.
5th pick: #4 (Dark Squire) (15-1) - Longshot has a bit of speed and is racing for the first time since Feb. 13. Working steadily, he was bet in all four previous outings and must be left in the same race exotic bets.
