Friday Monmouth Adventure

A great Friday always begins with a little horse racing.  Today we look at a nice Turf route at marvelous Monmouth Park.

Monmouth Park Race 9 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Optional Claiming}
A solid field of seven will roll out on the green in this high level Turf contest.  There is an ample number of speedsters and pressers to keep this one very interesting.

#1 Salary Drive (Serpa / Plesa) looks much the best with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two hearty workouts.  She could sit in the pocket behind the forwardly place and dash to the wire.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Crying Lightening [IRE] (Boyce / Toner) looks ready to improve in his third North American start.  She is coming off a layoff having held the third highest last out speed number and put in two strong, peaking workouts.  He has enough tactical speed to stay close.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#6 Lil Kiara (Marquez / Lynch) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one solid workout.  She could track the pace ready to pounce in the stretch.

#3 Marquet Madness (Trujillo / Hartmann) should be the speed of the race with the highest speed number at the distance and a 70% in the money record at the distance.  She could control the pace and wire the field.

10 CENT Superfecta

#1 Salary Drive / #5 Crying Lightening [IRE] / #6 Lil Kiara / #3 Marquet Madness.
