I will highlight three horses of interest on today’s program (all 9-2 or higher on morning line) using the Track Bias Stats and Race Summary page in the BRIS Ultimate Past Performances:
Race 1: Early types are winning at a 43% rate and outside posts (8 & out) have also performed well in 6-furlong sprints this meet. #6 Green Diamond Cat (post 8) should benefit from his first start over the track, registering commendable BRIS numbers for a close fourth at this level, and could prove tough to run down as lone speed.
Race 4: Sustained types (closers) possess a favorable run style for one-mile turf routes and #6 Seeyouatthedisco will look to make a serious impact in the latter stages. The 6yo mare is in top form for Joe Sharp, who wins at 21% rate right back off a win, and easily tops the field in BRIS Prime Power (130.2). The course specialist can win her second straight at this level today.
Race 6: Pace pressers from inside posts merit respect in turf sprints and #4 Eden Grey’s Kitten (post 2) is eligible to pad those stats today. He just missed several times last year before going off form, but the 5yo gelding appears to be turning things around for Steve Flint, rallying boldly to just miss over the course last time. An overall 12% trainer, Flint is winning at a 31% clip in the third start off the layoff.
