On the Horizon – Friday (February 19, 2021) – John Pinder

Late Pick 5 Sequence

Race 6: SELECTIONS 4 – 1

#5 My Ashleigh returns to the races after a 51 day layoff for trainer Michael Yates.  Flashed good early speed before weakening in his prior starts; anticipating the ability to hold the lead after getting some rest; Tyler Gaffalione aboard.  #1 Low Pressure Zone is a well-bred son of Curlin out of an A.P. Indy mare, who’s only race was over one year ago.  Consistent workout tab for a small barn with a well-bred horse should not be overlooked.

Race 7: SELECTIONS 4 – 7

#4 What’s the Move makes her second start for trainer Danny Gargan, who continues to be red hot during the meet.  She won last time out back in December with a well timed ride by Luis Seaz, he stays aboard for today’s race.  #7 She Fled the Scene lost by a nose in both of her most recent attempts at this level.  This hard trying mare is only 1 of 18 in her career starts but has hit the board in 13 of those.

Race 8: SELECTIONS 3-  6

#3 Liza Star has top level early pace figures for this group and should be able to clear off with ease.  #6 We Miss Susie is making her third consecutive start without a layoff for the first time since 2019.  She has shown to lots of promise at higher levels, today she should have the opportunity to do well.

Race 9: SELECTION  8

#8 Daddy’s Joy looks to be the speed of the speed, as she has put up numbers far superior than the other runners.  She also is running for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. who has excellent win percentages with todays conditions (Allowance Turf starts returning after 45-90 away)

Race 10 : SELECTIONS 8  – 5  –  2

#8 Young Flint is a 3 year-old colt owned and trained by Ralph Nicks; made a move last time on the turn and put himself into contention.  First time blinkers, second time Lasix should lead to further improvement.  #5 Happy Champ drops in class after being claimed for more than today’s purse.  Negative ? Suspicious ?  Could be or it could be the the new trainer does well with spotting his runners first off the claim to give the best opportunity to win and get confidence ; in this case I am going to assume the later.  #2 Quinto Sol ran as if the the light bulb may have shown a flicker in the later part of his last race and potentially could now run better than he has in the past.
