EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #5
Wednesday 07/02 05:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #12 (HAVANA MIKE) (5-2) - The probable favorite, "Mike" has finished second in two straight here at this level and speed/stalker draws a perfect outside post at this trip to beat this group and pick up his maiden score.
2nd pick: #6 (Galloping Gaucho) (7-2) - Grey gelding is clearly improving and last out chased, bid, and held down the place spot racing at this trip and tag on June 11th. Home bred from Texas should be involved from start-to-finish.
3rd pick: #9 (Grace's Bandit) (15-1) - Longshot was sharp her two back at this level, then raced extremely wide while never involved in his latest. Four-year-old could grab a share of this at big odds with a repeat on his May 14th third-place finish.
4th pick: #4 (Negotiation) (6-1) - The best bred horse in this group, he finished fourth when debuting for a $12.5K tag on March 26th. Three-year-old by "Ghostzapper" raced evenly a month later facing special weights and has been freshened up since. Drops and should be competitive against this field.
