PTF Posting Spencer’s Late Pick 5 Analysis for Sunday
#3 Epic Adventure: This son of Street Sense will be coming from about mid-pack in this maiden affair. His debut puts him right in the mix on the Beyer par, and he also has the best last-out Beyer to boot.
A: 3 (leading single in sequence)
#5 Rocko’s Wheel: Top connections for this nine-year-old gelding who has improved him in his first two starts for the new barn, albeit against the weaker company at Lone Star park. He was good enough to win at the 12K claiming level last February at Oaklawn.
#8 Wagon Boss: This gelding has some of my favorite angles when I look at past performances; out of the last four races, he’s only raced once on dirt, and that is his best speed figure. Randy Matthews not the best first off the claim, but 9-2 is a good enough price to take a shot in a race like this.
#4 Mo’s Mojo: This son of Uncle Mo is cutting back in distance, and I love the fact he’s shown good early zip in those route races, so he shouldn’t be too far out of it in the early going. That race two back was well above par of today’s race.
#10 Hoof Prince: Mike Maker got me a winner last week in my Pick 5 article, and the last time this colt was on a dry track, he was winning by five breaking his N2L condition. You can toss the previous race as he’s not a synthetic horse and two back in the slop against better was fine running third.
#9 Something Super: I’m still trying to learn about how this barn operates after they won a couple of races on opening day. So far, in two races for the barn, the sprint was the much better race, and maybe stretching out last time against allowance company was too much.
#3 Blacktop Legend: Going deep here because I don’t want to lose to a Diodoro. Since November, he hasn’t been seen, and that gave Diodoro more time to figure this gelding out. He is also 2-2 at the six-furlong distance.
#2 Jilted Bride: I’m willing to give this filly one more chance as she has been hitting the board consistently at this level, but there comes a time where they may be a proven loser. She hits the Beyer par in each of her last four races.
#4 Tonal Vision: She hasn’t really improved for Mike Maker in her first three starts in the barn but now comes off a layoff, and she has run third before in this condition back at Belmont in June of last year.
#8 Miss Antioch: Taking a massive shot here as I didn’t like anyone in here. She improved significantly in her first two starts for a barn that was 3% last year. She won the first time off a layoff the last time. Swinging for the fences here.
