EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #1

Top pick: #4 (HI CHARLIE) (5-2) - Home-bred has gone 3-0-2-1 when racing for under a $20K tag and this evening his connections drop him to a new low ($7500). He exits a poor effort when facing tougher on the grass April 24th and moves back to the dirt and shortens up in distance.
2nd pick: #1 (Here Comes Landen) (3-1) - Lightly raced 3-year-old checked in 4th of 11, beaten 3 1/2 lengths when racing here for twice this price April 12th. He drops to a new low, stretches out a furlong, and has the rail.
3rd pick: #3 (R Jones Semper Fi) (6-1) - Lightly-raced and improving, grey gelding has some early speed and in this field that's a big plus. He finished 4th of 12, beaten almost three lengths racing here at this level and distance April 24. Can factor today.
4th pick: #8 (Boy He's Good) (9-2) - He hit the gate when debuting here at this level April 18th and did well to finish a distant fourth in a contest that had a runaway winner. Draws a nice outside post and can impact with normal second out improvement.
