EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #5
Wednesday 06/25 05:25 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (SAINT DOMINIC) (7-2) - Colt rallied to finish second here when debuting here at this level going a 1/16th shorter on May 22nd. Three-year-old may have won that evening if not for some serious traffic issues and can take this with a clean journey.
2nd pick: #2 (Premium Rally) (6-1) - Price play tired after setting a pressured pace in the same May 22nd race as "Dominic." It was his first in 12 1/2 months and should move forward off of this.
3rd pick: #5 (Turf Kitten) (5-2) - The morning line favorite, gelding by "Kitten's Joy" runs first off a seven week freshening and first off a private sale to owner/trainer Art Pike III. He's been facing tougher and is an obvious win candidate.
4th pick: #9 (Captain Bertie) (6-1) - Lightly-raced colt runs first off a December 12th claim by trainer Andy Leggio Jr. Well bred 3-year-old is working very fast for his return and son of "More Than Ready" must be left in the mix.
