Fair Grounds Recap – Dec 5th
Fast main track and good turf (Pago Hop). Edge to early/pressing types on the main track. Patient types did well in the lone race run on the sod.
Hat trick for Shaun Bridgmohan included a pair with trainer Steve Asmussen. Agilar and Lanerie both booted home a pair. Cody Autrey saddled two winners on the day.
Exciting renewal of the Pago Hop Stakes went to Akilina, who held on by a determined head over Dancin Perfect. Christophe Clement saddled the winner, and Shaun Bridgmohan capped off a big day in the irons.
When I perused the Saturday rider changes I noticed a familiar name…welcome back PVal!
On the analysis front, I got home best bet top Click Away ($11.20). I also correctly tabbed the early double, the first pick 3, the 2nd race superfecta, the 6th race exacta, and the 11th race superfecta.
