The first race at Charles Town is a $13,300 event covering 4 ½ furlongs on the dirt. Lookin Back and Midnight Dragon should have a bold bid with a chance to strike.

Lookin Back is a one-time winner across 24 entries. She needs better after finishing 4th, 9th, 2nd in her previous three outings.

Lookin Back most recently placed 2nd behind Toy Tiger by 6 ¼ lengths in a $13,300 event. That was a nice performance after finishing 9th on March 5 in a $12,100 assignment.

If Lookin Back can hold her most recent form, expect her to take a good trip at the top prize. Midnight Dragon is 4th, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 1st in five attempts.

The filly is coming off a big performance to beat Grandma Schnur by 2 ½ lengths in an $18,700 event. This was a nice step up for Midnight Dragon after finishing 5th on August 12 in a $29,700 race.

Expect even better from Midnight Dragon on a class drop to $13,300 on Thursday night. She looks like the winner.

  • Post Time: 7:30 p.m. EST
  • Distance:4 ½ Furlongs
  • Purse: $14,500

The second race at Charles Town is a $14,500 event covering 4 ½ furlongs. Mischievous Jesse and Perth Amboy should be tough customers in Race 2.

Mischievous Jesse is 2 for 13 in his career. He’s 1st, 6th, 1st in his previous three attempts. In his latest outing, the gelding beat Belmullet by 3 ¾ lengths in a $17,600 assignment.

That was a nice response after struggling in the same class on February 11. Expect Perth Amboy to provide big resistance in the final furlong.

Perth Amboy is 2 for 8 and coming off a strong performance on March 30. He defeated Strong Safety by 4 ¼ lengths in a $13,300 assignment.

This was a nice run after Perth Amboy finished 4th on March 17 for a $12,100 purse. The improved form was nice to see from Perth Amboy after dropping down to 4 ½ furlongs.

Perth Amboy is much better suited in a 4 ½ furlong event and should look like the best on Thursday night.

(1) Beverly Park
+120 (6/5)
(2) Savagery
+400 (4/1)
(3) Jojomar
+300 (3/1)

Race 4 is a 6 ½ furlong event for a $24,200 purse on the dirt. Expect good work from Savagery and Beverly Park in this event.

Savagery is 7 for 31 and 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 4th in his previous five outings. He had a 1 length $28,900 win on June 23, but hasn’t been back to the winner’s circle in two races.

In his latest showing, Savagery finished 4th in a $75,000 purse on August 24. After a layoff, Savagery returns and back down in class to $24,400.

Beverly Park is 14 for 28 and a consistent performer. He’s 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd in six races in his career.

In his most recent, he placed 2nd behind a talented Baby Yoda by 3 ¾ lengths on April 14 for $44,000. With Baby Yoda out of the mix and down in class, expect Beverly Park to be a top runner in Race 4.
