Post Time: 1:10 p.m. EST
Distance:1 Mile 70 Yards

The first race at Finger Lakes is a mile and 70 yarder for a $12,600 purse. Thanxforlastnite and Sister Patricia should be in this race to win it.

Thanxforlastnite is 4 for 36 in her career, and has finished 2nd, 3rd, 6th in her last three. She placed 2nd behind Peggy Sue by a neck for a $12,600 purse. That was impressive.

Thanxforlastnite came back to go 3rd for a $12,600 prize. She finished 6th in her most recent attempt on September 6 for a $12,600 purse. Disappointing.

Sister Patricia is 4 for 33 in her career. She’s gone 7th, 4th, 9th, 4th in her previous four attempts. In her latest, Sister Patricia finished 5th for a $12,600 purse. Despite the mediocre finish, a repeat effort might be good enough versus this field.

Race 2

(1) Striking Mike
+600 (6/1)
(2) Kavansburg
+400 (4/1)
(3) Kodiak Brown
+160 (8/5)
(4) Try’n Smart’n Up
+600 (6/1)
(5) Classy Papa
+350 (7/2)
(6) Engineers Report
+500 (5/1)
(7) Take The Edge
+1500 (15/1)

Post Time: 1:39 p.m. EST
Distance:1 Mile 70 Yards

Race is a mile and 70 yards on the dirt for another $12,600 purse. Classy Papa and Kodiak Brown should be the ones to watch in this event.

Classy Papa is 2 for 29, having finished 3rd, 4th, 6th, 5th in his previous four attempts. He showed 3rd on July 26 for a $12,600 purse, and hasn’t been in the fray since then.

Classy Papa finished 5th in his most recent outing on August 31. He couldn’t get close in the $12,600 assignment, and was held more than 8 lengths away from the front at the wire.

Kodiak Brown has finished 2 for 16 in his career, and has finished 9th, 7th, 2nd in her previous three races. She finished 7th on July 27 for $20,000. That was too tough.

The gelding moved down in class on August 31 and it helped. He placed 2nd behind Kingfish by 2 ¾ lengths for a $12,600 purse. Remaining in the same class should run well versus this competition.

The Bet

Race 8 – Arctic Queen Stakes

(1) She’s Not Bluffing
+2000 (20/1)
(2) Miss Jimmy
+300 (3/1)
(3) Letmetakethiscall
+250 (5/2)
(4) Treatherlikeastar
+1000 (10/1)
(5) Hannah Dances
+800 (8/1)
(6) Wallin Josie
+600 (6/1)
(7) Spin A Yarn
+400 (4/1)
(8) Willow Grove
+2000 (20/1)

Post Time: 4:33 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

The $50,000 Arctic Queen Stakes is the feature at Finger Lakes this afternoon. Look for Miss Jimmy and Letmetakethiscall to do something on Monday afternoon.

Miss Jimmy is 9 for 21 in her career, and has finished in the top-2 in six of his previous seven outings. The mare is coming off a win on September 6.

It was a big performance from Miss Jimmy, as she cleared by a length at the wire for a $95,000 purse at Saratoga. Miss Jimmy is coming off a strong workout with a time of 59.20 seconds at 5 furlongs on September 25.

Letmetakethiscall is 13 for 33 in her career, and is going well recently for four wins in her last five attempts. She’s coming off a 9 ¼ length blowout for a $75,000 win on March 27.

Off a layoff this could be tough for Letmetakethiscall, though. She’s completed 5 furlongs in 1:05.49 and 1:02.90 in her previous two workouts. In a small upset, I prefer Miss Jimmy in this spot in the Arctic Queen Stakes.
