MOUNTAINEER PARK Race #5
Monday 10/06 05:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (KING'S HOUSE) (3-1) - Lightly raced gelding by "Harlington" has early speed and finished a strong second when debuting here at this level on Sept. 7. 3yo did not handle the sharper turns at Charles Town in his latest and is quickly returned to Mountaineer. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #6 (Grand Slam Kid) (5-2) - Speed/stalker has finished second in three straight and has gone 3-0-2-1 here at Mountaineer. Colt has a fine overall record (9-0-6-1) and should be involved from start-to-finish. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Tall Hammer) (5-1) - His form slipped last out in his first since leaving the "high octane" barn of Joe Woodward. Gelding had gone 6-0-4-1 for him, but did not run well in his first off a recent claim. Fits with his best as he moves up in class.
4th pick: #5 (Chance of Reign) (7-2) - He was only a "head" back of "Grand Slam Kid" last out and had finished a solid second in his previous start. They were his first two races at Mountaineer, and he must be left in the mix.
