LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #8
Thursday 09/11 05:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (BADASMYWIFELETSMEBE) (2-1) - The probable favorite, he takes a big drop in class, switches from turf to dirt, and shortens up in distance. Abrams home bred meets a weak field and should get his maiden win in this spot.
2nd pick: #6 (Rare Punch) (8-1) - Gelding raced very wide and evely at Del Mar Aug. 28 in his first back from a 7-week freshening. The 5-year-old had finished second here at this level in his previous start and is a threat with a repeat of that effort.
3rd pick: #7 (Renegade Cowboy) (9-2) - Lightly-raced British Columbia bred has a bit of speed and finished second in two of three starts earlier this year at Hastings Park. He races off a off almost a 10-week break and is dropping to a new low in price.
4th pick: #8 (Voluntary) (3-1) - He has a bit of speed, but has lost considerably ground during the stretch run of his last pair. Gelding needs to do better for anything more than a small slice.
