EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #9
Wednesday 04/30 07:15 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (ALIVIA'S LION) (7-2) - Stalker moves up in class and switches from turf to dirt. Lightly raced, consistent (8-3-2-1), and she's a perfect two for two on this surface. In shape and the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #10 (Darby Says See Ya) (6-1) - Mare rallied to finish second at the Fair Grounds March 21st in her first race in almost five months. Strong finisher moves up in class, is from a winning outfit ("Bret" Calhoun), and is a stretch threat.
3rd pick: #5 (Why Who) (10-1) - Longshot tired after chasing a quick pace at this Fair Grounds Feb. 23. It was her first start in exactly one year and she's worked fast since. Very dangerous with her best.
4th pick: #9 (Miss Dealbreaker) (5-1) - Veteran has been sharp in three straight and last out at Delta Downs she missed by a "head" racing at this level. She runs off almost an eight week break and is an obvious contender if 7-year-old holds her form.
5th pick: #1 (Fabulous Shoes) - She runs first off a Keith Bourgeois claim and mare has done some fine work (8-3-1-1) on this surface. Speed/stalker fits and her new trainer is having an outstanding meet.
