Race 1: 10:30am

Double Whammy class-dropped low enough last time that he certainly should have won. Instead he disappointed as a heavy favorite. No obvious excuses in that one, but this field is weak enough that he may still be the best of the bunch. Golden Rings is the best of several up-and-comer types in this one. He has been all over the class spectrum, and hit rock bottom at $5K claiming two races back. But he won his last race by nine lengths and a similar effort Saturday could be enough.

Homeboykris won two races back in similar company. He’s a seasoned veteran, stretching out a bit, but against a soft field he could be a part of it.

Bet Double Whammy to win. Wheel Double Whammy over Golden Rings, Homeboykris, Start Jumping, and Steve Came Through in exacta and trifecta wagers.
