If fields stay intact, the following races have pace dynamics that make them good wagering opportunities. We’ve got a few speed plays based on today’s initial ThoroPACE Forecast. Speed runners aren’t going to be impacted by scratches (theoretically they could improve but not worsen) in the same way stretch runners are potentially impacted.
Woodbine Race 9:
Pace Forecast: -18.0
Most Likely Leaders: #5, #3
#3 The Minkster and #5 Ironstone may be the quickest of these.
Hawthorne Race 1:
Pace Forecast: +2.7
Most Likely Leader #2
#2 Coal Town Road appears to be the controlling speed in this race.
Hawthorne Race 3:
Pace Forecast: -14.0
Most Likely Leader #6
#6 Hey Ma has a chance to wire this group at a big price.
Hawthorne Race 7:
Pace Forecast: +34.0
Most Likely Leaders: #2, #4
#3 McMoney has shown the ability to pass runners, and he did so without the benefit of a hot pace. The price should be right given the step up from MCL company.
Santa Anita Race 1:
Pace Forecast: -17.0
Most Likely Leader: ?
#2 Loyal to a Fault may be the least slow of this bunch of plodders.
Santa Anita Race 3:
Pace Forecast: -13.0
Most Likely Leader: #4
#4 Mecklenburg may get clear early.
There are several races today that appear to setup for stretch runners. They’re worth looking into following scratches, assuming the pace stays in the race.
*NOTE: ThoroPACE Pace Forecasts range from -35 (best for speed) to +35 (best for stretch runners). Also, our products are updated to reflect scratches as they become available (typically an update of our products occurs around 11AM, 3PM and 6PM ET each day).
