Race 7 Crescent City for Louisiana Breds
- With the scratch of Tensas Cat, Redsugar looks like an on-the-loose single.
Race 8 New Orleans
- With Stonehouse, Battle Plan and General Quarters all on or near the pace from the far outside, there is a potential for a traffic jam from the start and the possibility of a closer to come late. Let's take two out of the three from the outside: Battle Plan and General Quarters and throw in horse-for-the-course Star Guitar.
Race 9 Mervyn Muniz Jr.
- A turf event, so I might as well spread with Jet Propulsion - possible coast-to-coast candidate, El Caballo to rate just off his flank, Pick Six to pick up the pieces if the pace collapses, Blues Street for getting so good at six.
Race 10 Louisiana Derby
- There's plenty of pace in here, so we'll find out who can take the pressure and who will fold. Let's take take one up front and one from way back - Discreetly Mine to repeat his Risen Star feat and Stay Put to out kick Ron the Greek to the front, if too many want the lead.
The play for 50-cent: 3/7-9-10/2-4-5-8/7-9 for $12. Good luck with your plays...
