EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #1
Wednesday 06/11 03:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (HAVANA MIKE) (7-5) - Lightly-raced gelding enters off a career best when he missed by a neck when racing here at this tag on May 28th. In a winning barn (Shawn David) and he should best these with a repeat of his latest effort.
2nd pick: #6 (Mr Rossini) (4-1) - Another that's lightly raced, he set the pace and tired to finish a distant third to a "much the best" winner here at this level on May 1st. That was a career best and it came fresh off a two month break. Dangerous foe in this spot.
3rd pick: #10 (Call This Chick) (5-1) - He did not handle a two-turn trip last out and his rider pulled him up down the backstretch. Home-bred was competitive in two of his three previous sprints and has some early speed. Drops, and is in the small win mix.
4th pick: #1 (Gavin's Beau) (20-1) - Longshot is not a win candidate, but once past the top three picks this field is poor overall. Gelding could grab a minor award at a big price if things break right.
