Race 5, Post time scheduled for 2:42 PM, presents a compact but contentious group of a half-dozen two year-olds, going a mile on turf under Optional Claiming $75,000 NW1X conditions. Live coverage will start at 2:40 on Radio StPete.com online.
INNER GHOST (2) from the Mike Stidham outfit, maybe the key to unlock what could be a puzzling handicapping chore. This son of GHOSTZAPPER was an impressive Maiden winner at five furlongs over the Monmouth lawn, back on August 21. Today, he gets blinkers on and should be able to use his sprint speed to get to the front early and lead the field on a merry chase. Hector Diaz Jr. rode this youngster to his first tally and has a good shot at another here.
THE BET $20 to win on INNER GHOST (2) and a $2 exacta box with CAVE HILL (1) and PLAMAN (3) 1,2,3. Total Bet $32 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 12/9 Had a nice winner, but missed the exacta. The $20 win bet returned $142.00, a profit of $104 on the $38 in wagers. The bankroll is now at $1170, plus $170 from opening day.
