(7) Justa Swinging

Post Time: 1:23 p.m. CST
Distance:6 ½ Furlongs
Purse:$17,000

Race 2 is a $17,000 event covering 6 ½ furlongs on the dirt. Consider playing Justa Swinging and Yank Crime for a win in this one. If Yank Crime is scratched, do not play Sailing Jett alone.

Justa Swinging has to be considered based on where he’s been going recently. He has finished 2nd, 1st, 7th in his previous three outings.

The No. 7 came on strong two races back with a head win in a $24,000 event on November 27. That was a productive performance after placing 2nd behind Perfect Mistake by a nose in a $17,000 race.

Justa Swinging experienced an up-in-class trip on December 18 for a $46,000 purse. That didn’t go well for 7th, so it’s back down to the $17,000 level.

Yank Crime is 2 for 12 in his career and has finished 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 1st in his last four attempts. In his most recent, Yank Crime came through with a $13,000 win by 6 ½ lengths on January 12.

That was much too easy for Yank Crime. Up to the $17,000 level shouldn’t bother Yank Crime too much. This is his race if he wants it.

The Bet
(1) YANK CRIME (1A)

Race 3

(1) Oak Hill Seniorita
+350 (7/2)
(2) My Deposit
+1000 (10/1)
(3) Custom Maiden
+500 (5/1)
(4) Standupdon’tkneel
+800 (8/1)
(5) Halo’s Song
+450 (9/2)
(6) Girls Count
+200 (2/1)
(7) Overly Sweet
+600 (6/1)

Post Time: 1:51 p.m. CST
Distance: 1 Mile
Purse:$38,000

Race 3 is a $38,000 event covering a mile on the dirt. This looks like a good one between Oak Hill Seniorita and Girls Count in the stretch.

Oak Hill Seniorita is winless through ten outings and will have a chance on these terms after finishing 7th, 4th, 4th in her last three races. She most recently finished 4th for a $38,000 purse on January 13.

Oak Hill Seniorita was 4th prior to that run in the same grade. In this one, she should see slightly weaker competition, though Girls Count will be there to provide a big fight.

Girls Count is winless in 11 races, but came on hard in her most recent showing. Girls Count placed 2nd behind Alhambra Palace for a $38,000 purse.

That was a solid attempt after going 4th on January 5 in a $25,000 event. There should be competition in this event, but Girls Count holds a leading chance based in her last race.

The Bet
(6) GIRLS COUNT

Race 5

(1) Friendly and Kind (1A) Matapan
+300 (3/1)
(2) Nana’s Joy
+1200 (12/1)
(3) Moorac
+1000 (10/1)
(4) Oh My Oh
+800 (8/1)
(5) Eternal Endeavour
+160 (8/5)
(6) C C’s Baby Girl
+450 (9/2)
(7) Angel’s Cut
+600 (6/1)

Post Time: 2:47 p.m. CST
Distance:6 ½ Furlongs
Purse:$13,000

Race 6 runs for a $13,000 purse covering 6 ½ furlongs on the dirt. Friendly and Kind should have a presence in the stretch run for the top prize.

Friendly and Kind is 12 for 39 in her career and has finished 7th, 2nd, 2nd, 4th in her previous four outings. She had a couple of good trips on November 27 and December 30, placing 2nd in two $13,000 races.

The mare wasn’t able to come closer on January 14, as she settled for 4th in the same grade. She isn’t going anywhere and appearing in another $13,000 race.

Eternal Endeavour is 5 for 30 in her career and in the best consistency of her career right now. The British bred mare is 1st, 3rd, 2nd, 1st in her last four.

She came through on January 12 in her last start for a 4 ½ length $12,000 win. That was too easy. Prior to that win, Eternal Endeavour placed 2nd behind Goodnightsugar by a neck in a $12,000 race.

Edging up slightly to $13,000, this shouldn’t be too difficult against a field of this caliber. Look for Eternal Endeavour to have a serious chance for a win.

The Bet
(2) ETERNAL ENDEAVOUR
