NOTE: Due to the absurb starting times here on the best coast, no thoughts on Race 1-2 or Race 12. Heck, I might miss first couple of BC races after working late Friday night.
THIRD RACE: 7-6-4-13-3
FOURTH RACE: 1-5-8-4-9
In Charlie Appleby we trust.
FIFTH RACE: 1-2-3-5-10
It’s a shame Laurel River scratched. Slow Down Andy might just go from the No. 1 post and never slow down. Sneaky.
SIXTH RACE: 5-3-11-10-9
The Euros vs. Chad Brown. I like the Euros.
SEVENTH RACE: 4-5-9-6-6
American Therom comes out of the ultra key Pat O’Brien at Del Mar with 3 winners and a runner-ups so far. Why I was so bummed about Laurel River (comes out of same race).
EIGHTH RACE: 4-11-3-14-9
iN cHARLIE WE TRUST.
NINTH RACE: 8-1-4-6-2
10TH RACE: 7-11-4-2-12
Do I need to say it again? In Charlie we trust. However, I’ll be honest: I don’t like morning-linr favorite Rebel’s Romance. I know he is 4 for 4 on the turf but I question those fields in Germany.
11TH RACE: 1. No. 4 Flightline, 2. No. 1 Taiba, 3. No.2 Life Is Good, 4. No. 7 Olympiad. LONG SHOT: No. 5 Hot Rod Charlie.
Come on, did you really think you would see any horse’s name other than FLIGHTLINE in the top spot? Trainer John Sadler and crew are looking for a fitting end to a magical campaign. His Pacific Classic race was awesome. Bob Baffert is looking to prove TAIBA is the top 3-year-old this year and he has a shot. LIFE IS GOOD was in the Baffert barn before the suspension. HOT ROD CHARLIE is tough as nails.
Good luck. Stay safe.
