Race 1

(1) Nabruzzi
+250 (5/2)
(2) Now Pramela
+800 (8/1)
(3) Happycrest
+200 (2/1)
(4) Positive Power
+150 (3/2)
(5) Social Exclusion
+800 (8/1)

Post Time: 6:00 p.m. EST
Distance:1 1/16 Miles

The first event at Penn National is 1 1/16 miles on the dirt for a $14,400 purse. Look for Happycrest and Positive Power to put up a big fight in this one.

Happycrest is 1 for 46 in her career and has finished 2nd, 2nd, 7th, 3rd in her previous four attempts. In her latest race, Happycrest showed 3rd on October 19 in an $18,800 event.

That was an improvement after finishing 7th on September 27 for a $25,000 race. The drop in class helped and I’m sure an additional drop in grade to $14,400 should help even more.

Positive Power is a one-time winner in 27 races in her career. The mare is 5th, 2nd, 6th in her previous three outings. She placed 2nd behind Golden Grant by 1 length in a $22,785 assignment on November 6.

That was a great run in a tougher class. Positive Power returned to go 6th on December 17 for a $36,690 purse. Given the terms it was an adequate attempt.

This race tonight should give Positive Power a much better opportunity for a win.

Race 4

(1) News Item
+350 (7/2)
(2) Chain Reaction
+250 (5/2)
(3) Ltl Bear Saloon
+600 (6/1)
(4) Carpe Sogno
+600 (6/1)
(5) Buff and Shine
+200 (2/1)
(6) Nazereno
+800 (8/1)

Post Time: 7:22 p.m. EST
Distance: 6 Furlongs

Race 4 covers 6 furlongs on the dirt for an $18,100 purse. Buff and Shine and Chain Reaction should be in top contention to get home in this race.

Buff and Shine has finished 2nd, 3rd, in three attempts. He placed 2nd behind Amigos Guitar by 3 ½ lengths in an $18,100 assignment on December 3.

In his sophomore run, Buff and Shine showed 3rd on January 4 for a $27,100 prize. That was a pretty good race for Buff and Shine at that level.

Down to $18,100, expect Buff and Shine to be in competitive standing. Chain Reaction has been improving in each race since debuting on November 23.

As a first-time runner on November 23, Chain Reaction finished 11th in a $34,000 race. He showed improvement to finish 4th on December 22, and then showed 3rd on January 12 for an $18,100 purse.

Chain Reaction continues to get better and should be tough for this field to deal with if he continues on this road.

The Bet

Race 9

(1) Iron Clash
+600 (6/1)
(2) Methodtothemadness
+2000 (20/1)
(3) Royal Kaz
+200 (2/1)
(4) Awesome Yet Again
+400 (4/1)
(5) Phil the Banker
+500 (5/1)
(6) Dreaming of Love
+600 (6/1)
(7) Gotanda
+350 (7/2)

Post Time: 9:36 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 9 should be a competitive race between Gotanda and Royal Kaz for the top prize. Gotanda is 1 for 6 in his career, with a win back on November 5 at Belmont Park.

Gotanda came through for a $45,000 win by 1 ¼ lengths. That was a promising second run for Gotanda, but might have been a mirage.

Since then, Gotanda has struggled to get close again. In his last race, he finished 4th in a $10,800 race. More is required from Gotanda on Tuesday, but the potential is there.

Royal Kaz is 1 for 15 and looking to get back on track after finishing 6th most recently on December 15 for a $14,400 purse. This was after placing 2nd behind Saponara by 3 ¾ lengths as the favorite.

Royal Kaz was consistently running well, finishing in the top-2 in five of his previous six attempts on November 23. The gelding is still seeing a drop in class to a $10,800 race on Tuesday.

Expect Royal Kaz to get into contention with a good chance of being the best at the wire.
