Fair Grounds Recap – Jan 9th
Fast main track and off the turf again. Five wire jobs on the main (4 in sprints), and note that five patient runners also tallied. Overall, speed ruled in sprints, and routes played fair.
Lanerie, Lebron, and Torres each booted home a pair. Back to back two-win days for Briggy/Asmussen.
The 30th running of the Dixie Poker Ace was taken off the turf, and Hallway nosed Desert Wheat in a thrilling finish. Shaun Bridgmohan booted home the Steve Asmussen trainee.
Josaka (Lebron-Foley) was clearly best in route maiden breaker (8th race). 3yo daughter of Smart Strike is one to keep an eye on.
On the analysis front, I got home best bet top Girlie Go ($11.40). I also tabbed the pick three ending with the 3rd race.
