EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #10
Wednesday 05/14 07:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (FRANCESCA DEL PORTE) (8-1) - Veteran mare was claimed back by trainer Anthony Arey for $4000 on March 6th and it's the third time she's been in his barn. Freshened up since, her last pair of works at Delta Downs were bullets and she's won on this surface in the past. Can take this at a square price.
2nd pick: #3 (Luckylilgolddigger) (3-1) - The morning line favorite, mare was a winner at this tag going two-turns here April 9th and was claimed that evening by Karl Broberg. Barn is having at outstanding meet and wins at a 29% clip first off the claim. She likes it at Evangeline (4-2-1-0) and is an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Bienheureux) (8-1) - Old-timer has been to the winner's circle 17 times in her 59 start career and is 6 for 14 locally. She still brings a good game at age 10 and is racing second back off a pair of layoffs. Can impact at long odds.
4th pick: #1 (Fabulous Shoes) (7-2) - Mare likes it here (8-3-1-1) and one of those three local scores came at this 7-furlong trip. Speed/stalker has the rail and races first off a Keith Bourgeois claim (16%). Must be left in the mix.
