Late Pick 5 sequence:
Race 5 SELECTIONS: 7 – 2 – 6
#7 Listentothemusic showed good early speed in his prior efforts, today he returns to the races after a 3 month layoff for trainer Danny Gargan and gets Lasix for the first time; Irad Ortiz Jr. in the irons. #2 Lieutenant Stan also showed good early speed as a two-year old but never got the maiden victory. Today he will be running second off the layoff for trainer Mark Casse. #6 Certain runs first time out for new trainer Jack Sisterson, who does well with first time Lasix runners.
Race 6 SELECTIONS: 5 – 2
#5 Never Satisfied is dropping down two classes for trainer Gerald Brooks. At higher claiming levels he was beaten consistently but not by much. He also does his best running late and is stretching out in distance for this race. #2 Cajun Bayou is another runner that will be hitting his best stride late and is stretching out in distance and running second off the layoff for the new barn of Edgar Bayeh.
Race 7 SELECTIONS: 5 – 4
#5 Classy Edition was undefeated in her first three starts and hit the board in two graded stakes races before being sidelined. She returns in this spot after a nine-month layoff for trainer Todd Pletcher and gets Lasix for the first time. #4 Signal From Noise is a well-bred daughter of Arrogate, who broke her maiden last time out in impressive fashion, winning by nine lengths for trainer Chad Brown.
Race 8 SELECTIONS: 2 – 4 – 7
#2 Abuse of Power is running second off the layoff for trainer Ronald Spatz. Her last race looks really bad, but it was moved off the turf and she did not get a good start; capable of improvement.
#4 Dakota Dancer is intriguing in this race due to her early speed coupled with the fact that she is cutting back a half a furlong, she also moves back to the turf.
#7 Starship Mallomar is dropping in class and returning to the turf after a non-graded stakes attempt last time out. Her efforts on the turf around this class level are on par for sure, Jose Ortiz gets the mount.
Race 9 SELECTIONS: 8 – 1 – 5
#8 Colonel Cappy flashed early speed in his debut last time out for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. Today he returns but at a lower level and gets Lasix for the first time. #1 Solomons Gold moves back to the All-Weather surface and drops in class for trainer Larry Bates. #5 Avatal Hero runs for the new barn of Jose D’Angelo and gets Lasix for the first time.
Let’s make it happen!!!
