TURF PARADISE Race #4
Tuesday 12/17 12:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (GENTSFINISHFIRST) (9-2) - Old-timer enters off a shar gate-to-wire win here at this tag going 4.5-furlongs on Nov. 25. Nine-year-old doesn't need the lead to win, is in a high-energy barn (Justin Evans), and gets the call in a tough heat.
2nd pick: #2 (Keepanosecrets) (6-1) - Gelding has won 7 of 19 overall and ran a career best when winning here at this tag and trip last out. He breaks just off the rail and is dangerous if he repeats his latest effort.
3rd pick: #5 (Face Your Fear) (4-1) - Very consistent sprinter has gone 15-3-4-2 this year and has been beaten a "neck" and a 1/2 length in his last pair after arriving from Finger Lakes.
4th pick: #4 (Heir Joe) (7-2) - He has a good closing kick and will be dropping down to the price-tag of his last win. Has back class and his local record is a fine 8-1-4-1.
