A somewhat tricky handicapping puzzle confronts us in Race 5, seven panels on the main track for $5,000 claimers who have not won two races in six months. Five of the seven runners entered appear to have a shot at the winners circle. Post time is scheduled for 2:50 PM.
There are several need to lead types here and that may cause the pace to collapse and provide a closer with an opportunity at the seven furlong distance. GREELEY'S FAREWELL (3) is the choice to nail the speed for the Ferraro outfit under red-hot Ron Allen Jr. He has the best last race speed and late pace figures, a combination that produces many winners at the Downs at this trip.
THE BET $10 to win on GREELEY'S FAREWELL (3) and a $2 exacta box with WORD OF TRUTH (8) and VERY AMUSING (1) 1,3,8
TOTAL BET $22 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 5/30 Had the win and exacta. The $10 win bet paid $25, the $2 exacta
$34, a profit of $37 for the day. The bankroll is now plus $140.40
