(7) Zazzy Zazzy Dazzle

Post Time: 1:33 p.m. CST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 4 is a $106,000 event over 1 1/16 miles on the dirt. This looks like a Warrior’s Battle and Interstatedaydream race.

Interstatedaydream is 1st, 2nd in two races, with a winning run as a rookie on June 25 and then did well in the $200,000 Adirondack Stakes (Gr. 2) for 2nd.

She was strong on debut, as Interstatedaydream had a win by a head for $90,000.

Insterstatedaydream failed to follow up in her graded debut, but in fine form to place 2nd behind Wicked Halo by 3 ½ lengths in the $200,000 Adirondack Stakes (Gr. 2).

Warrior’s Battle will be a big challenger in this one. The filly is 3 for 5 finishing 3rd, 4th, 1st, 1st, 1st, and looking for more after a hat-trick.

The No. 1 is coming off a 9 ¾ length win for a $50,000 win on January 22. This followed a 4 length $44,000 win for Warrior’s Battle.

It has been too easy for Warrior’s Battle thus far, so a $106,000 event looks right. If Warrior’s Battle runs how she did in the 9 ¾ length win, this is a good spot.

Race 5

(1) Beyond the Hype
+1500 (15/1)
(2) Keen Contender
+600 (6/1)
(3) Fivedconsciencenes
+1500 (15/1)
(4) Miss Yum Yum
+800 (8/1)
(5) Burrow Down
+200 (2/1)
(6) Only Show In Town
+1000 (10/1)
(7) Rainbows are Free
+1200 (12/1)
(8) Pontiffany
+2000 (20/1)
(9) Purrfect Mistress
+350 (7/2)
(10) Shezz Koldazice
+450 (9/2)

Post Time: 2:03 p.m. CST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 5 covers 1 1/16 miles on the dirt for $34,000. Purrfect Mistress and Burrow Down are going to be tough at this level.

Purrfect Mistress is winless in six attempts finishing 5th, 6th, 4th, 8th, 2nd, 5th. The filly had her best race two races back, placing 2nd behind Red Queen by 2 lengths for $30,000.

In her latest appearance, Purrfect Mistress was 5th in a $30,000 event. That was discouraging after the solid outing. Purrfect Mistress can bounce back from that defeat, though.

Burrow Down is winless in seven races, with finishes of 2nd, 6th, 6th, 2nd in his last four races. In the last race, Burrow Down placed 2nd behind Big Java by a half-length for $30,000.

This was a solid effort from Burrow Down after going 6th on January 8 in a $35,000 assignment. Noted improvement was made.

The No. 5 has to be considered with greater improvement possible.

The Bet

Race 9

(1) Improbable Journey
+450 (9/2)
(2) Slim Man
+300 (3/1)
(3) Be There
+1200 (12/1)
(4) Blame Eli
+1500 (15/1)
(5) Mean Jakey
+500 (5/1)
(6) Maxienfinn
+800 (8/1)
(7) Onyourmarkgetsetgo
+2000 (20/1)
(8) American Mayhem
+800 (8/1)
(9) Alpha Whiskey
+1200 (12/1)
(10) Sisaway Now
+1200 (12/1)
(11) Cold City
+1200 (12/1)
(12) Ghaaleb’s Big Win
+800 (8/1)

Post Time: 4:10 p.m. CST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 9 covers 6 furlongs on the dirt for a $90,000 purse. Look for Mean Jakey and Slim Man to catch on in this assignment.

Mean Jakey is winless in two attempts, finishing 3rd, 6th in two assignments. In his first outing, Mean Jakey looked good, showing 3rd for a $120,000 event on October 2.

Following that solid debut, Mean Jakey returned on October 31 and dropped to 6th. A grade drop to $90,000 is understandable.

Slim Man has placed 2nd in two races. He is looking for one spot better on Sunday.

Slim Man placed 2nd behind Pressure by 1 ¼ lengths in an $84,000 race and then 3 ½ lengths most recently on January 29. Minor improvement from Slim Man is likely enough versus a field like this.
