August 12, 2014
PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #3
Tuesday 08/12 03:15 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (I AM THE KING) (3-1) - Thirteen time winner races first off a Jamie Ness claim (a strong 33% winning angle) and he brings him back five weeks later at the purchase price. Eight-year-old has worked sharply since the positive barn switch and can take this with his best.
2nd pick: #3 (Break of Silence) (5-2) - Consistent sort has gone 3-2-0-1 since coming off a pair of layoffs in late May and he's done some fine work on this surface in the past (4-2-0-2). Stalker earned a nice figure in his latest and is a win candidate this evening.
3rd pick: #1 (Exxel) (7-2) - Nicely bred gelding has done his best work locally (13-4-3-0), and last out rallied to win at this distance when facing weaker. Seven-year-old by "Gulch" has back class and draws the ground-saving rail.
4th pick: #2 (Seize the Fire) (6-1) - He racing third back off an eight month layoff and has been competitive in two of his three return starts. All eight career wins have been at Presque Isle and he's running second off a positive barn switch to Lance Stokes.
