Thursday at Thistledown

On a pleasant Thursday in the great state of Ohio, we take a look at a nice sprint race at Thistledown.  A wonderful warm-up to an exciting horse racing weekend.

Thistledown Race 8 {6 furlongs~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}
A unique group of eight will go to the gate for this allowance feature.  Plenty of speed will keep the pace fluid.  There are a few trackers in the race which should make things interesting if the pace heats up.

#7 Zippin Along (Banda / Cosine) has a pressing/tracking running style that she can use to great benefit.  She holds the highest last out speed number and a two race progression.  This gal has run well over the Thistledown track.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Orica's Luck (H. Rosario / Tsirigolis) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and one good workout.  She has the tactical speed to stay close to the front or if the pace heats up back off a little on the throttle and zoom through the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#2 Uh Oh Hereshecomes (Seabury / Rini) should be in the hunt with the second highest (tie) last out speed number and a three race progression.  She can be expected to hang back off the pace and push through the stretch.

#8 Danzig Scorpion (De La Cruz / Kamerski) could be in the mix sharing the second highest last out speed number and holding a two race progression.  She could be forwardly placed hoping to hold off those coming from behind.
