September 24, 2014
PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #8
Wednesday 09/24 05:20 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (WHISKEYONTHEROCKS) (4-1) - Old timer is back in good form after needing several starts when returning from a 13 1/2 month layoff in late may. Speed/stalker just missed last out at this level and distance and draws a better post this evening.
2nd pick: #3 (Espresso) (3-1) - No-speed type has been sharp in two straight here at this level and veteran is a threat from off the pace if he holds his present form.
3rd pick: #7 (Exxel) (5-2) - Gelding loves it here (16-4-4-1) and has gone 2-1-1-0 at this tag at this meet. Strong finisher has beaten better in the past and is a win candidate at a short price.
4th pick: #2 (Purge Bird) (8-1) - The main speed, he ships in from Finger Lakes where he's been competitive in three starts on the dirt at this tag in 2014. This will be his first ever on a synthetic surface and 6-year-old is a threat at a square price if he takes to it.
