(8) Little Empire
+1500 (15/1)

Post Time: 1:40 p.m. EST
Distance: 6 Furlongs

The third race at Mahoning Valley is a $24,300 event covering 6 furlongs on the dirt. Fracing Nasty and Hail to Helen should have a big presence in the stretch run.

Fracing Nasty made her debut on February 18 and looked good in a $29,000 event. The filly placed 2nd behind Krispy Rice by 1 ¼ lengths. That was a durable performance on her debut run.

She should be involved in the stretch on these terms Monday. Hail to Helen is the most likely to bother Fracing Nasty this afternoon.

Hail to Helen is winless in seven attempts, finishing 5th, 5th, 5th, 7th in four races. In her most recent attempt, Hail to Helen finished 7th in a $29,000 event.

She is capable of better and will need it with Fracing Nasty in the mix on Monday. The No. 2 looks too tough.

Post Time: 2:36 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 5 is a $33,700 event covering 6 furlongs on the dirt. Runlikejackieo and Daddys Little Flag should be competitive in the final furlong.

Runlikejackieo is a one-time winner through four events going into Monday. She is 2nd, 4th, 1st, 3rd through the first four races of her career.

Two races back, Runlikejackieo struck with a $29,600 win by a nose on October 30. That was a good one from Runlikejackieo after finishing 4th in the Emerald Necklace Stakes.

In her next and most recent try, she showed 3rd for a $75,000 purse with continued improvement. Daddys Little Flag will be tough to run with as well.

Daddys Little Flag is 2nd, 1st, 2nd in three races in her career. She had a $31,800 win on January 14. That was a nice attempt.

In her next showing, Daddys Little Flag placed 2nd behind Larsa by 2 ½ lengths for a $33,700 prize on February 18. At 6 furlongs, she should be tough to beat at Mahoning Valley.

The Bet

Race 6

(1) Shell Fire
+500 (5/1)
(2) Ruling Empire
+800 (8/1)
(3) Khalfani
+200 (2/1)
(4) Kosciuszko
+600 (6/1)
(5) Lazarus Project
+350 (7/2)
(6) Fox on the Run
+250 (5/2)

Post Time: 3:04 p.m. EST
Distance: 6 Furlongs

Race 6 should go on well between Fox on the Run and Khalfani in the stretch. Fox On the Run is 6 for 15 and looking for more after three straight wins.

Coming off a hat-trick, Fox On the Run can win again in this $20,400 event over 6 furlongs on the dirt. In his latest outing, he beat Unyielding by a head for $17,600.

This came after a half-length $11,200 win. With finishes of 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 1st, 1st, 1st in her previous six attempts, it’s hard to discard her abilities in Race 6.

Khalfani is 6 for 28 and looking at a hat-trick of his own on Monday. He is coming off back-to-back wins, with a $16,100 2 length win and then most recently a 1 ¾ length win in the same grade.

This looks like a good spot for Khalfani on the dirt Monday afternoon.
