BAHAMIAN MOON (5) is dangerous in this event, getting back on dirt after an unsuccessful turf try in her last outing. Prior to that, she logged a trio of local place finishes earning the best figures in the field. Veteran rider Jose Ferrer has the return mount for trainer Dennis Ward (31% winners together). Blinkers go on here (Ward 40%) and she turns back to a sprint, which should be to her benefit.
THE BET $10 win on BAHAMIAN MOON (5) and a $2 exacta box with MYONGA (2) and CATCH THE RAINBOW (10) 2,5,10. Total Bet $22 GOOD LUCK!!
