Canterbury Park Analysis – Wednesday, July 7th – by Howard Kravets

Please watch my livestream show tomorrow night, Ep. #54, of the HHH Racing Podcast YT Channel HERE for a great preview of the big day of racing at Belmont on Saturday w/my special guest, NYRA’s own Andy Serling! Show starts at 8PM EST, don’t miss it!!

Last night, we connected w/longshot in R4, top pick #8 Agent Peter Graves, paid $24.60 and trifecta paid $388 for $1 w/top 3 selections!!

Race 8-10 are Quarterhorse races and therefore will not be covered in this blog posting. 

Key:  BF = Bad Favorite and LS = Longshot

Race 1:   5-2-4

#5 Clickbait looks like way too much horse in the opener. Has been given ample time to refresh from big stake score, outside trip guarantees staying out of trouble.

Race 2:   5-2-4

#5 Determined to Rise wants to live up to his name, maybe today is the day. Lowest-level cond. claimers are tough to trust, but will try to wire the field again…flag fall to that’s all?

Race 3:   5-1-2

P5 starts here…..ABC selections below:

Looking for major improvement from the #5 Jeepster, who should be a bit of a price here. Robertson 23% with his second-time starters, fave on the rail doesn’t impress me. Jeepster worked well prior to debut…maybe just needed one.

Race 4:   7-3-1

#7 Henry O’Henry caught up in a pretty good early dual last time in alw. company. Drops way down in class (a bit suspicious) and should get an easy lead from here and wire them at a very low price.

Race 5:    4-6-7   BF: 7

Gonna keep the faith (get it?) with #4 Thirtyminutemass, who I liked last time. Did not break well, was wide, no chance vs. the flow and finished ok. Now, goes into a sprint and should show more speed for new trainer Silva.

Race 6:    2-5-3

#2 H’rayforcaberneigh wants turf, rained off last time. Was up close to a very fast pace. Expect rider to sit more with inside trip and finish late. 2-1 ML is crazy low…would need a higher price to bet to win.

Race 7:   6-5-4

#6 Soulandgrace has a speed fig last time that towers over the field…20 points better than anyone else. If that fig is to be believed, she just needs to repeat, or come close to repeating, that effort to get the job done here.
