Player Quick Pick: Presque Isle for 6/26/2014

June 26th, 2014

by Mel Daniels

Delaware Park Race 6/ Post time 3:30 est

50k Stakes Race for 3 yo going 1 1/16 on turf

1 Joint Custody  This Maryland bred gelding has placed 9 times in 10 career starts while winning 4. He has earned almost 250k. This colt was in the running to make the Kentucky Derby field. The big thing that worries me today, is that he will be making his first start on turf. Adds jockey Jose R Betancourt.

10 Craftsman {Ire} This colt in 8 career starts has placed in 4 while winning 2, but has yet to cross the line first in the United States. That could all change today. This will be his 7th straight stakes race, but today it will be against lesser than he has faced. He will be making his first start for trainer G.H Motion. Adds jockey Alex Cintron.

8-Wallyanna  This lightly raced colt is making only his 5th career start today. He will be going for his 4th straight victory. In his last start at Pimlico in a 100k stakes race on turf going 1 mile, he had a horrible race starting at the gate where he hopped out and was very keen from the outset. He finally settled down and angled 3 wide into the turn and won by almost 5 lengths. Adds jockey Kendrick Carmouche.

Picks: 8 - 10 - 1

Long shot play is on the 5 Allstar

Good luck and have fun!
