Fair Grounds Friday

Another fantastic Friday and we look to Fair Grounds to get back on track.

Fair Grounds Race 6 {1 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Allowance}
A nice group of ten Turfers will go to the gate in this feature.  The field is very closely matched.  It happens to come up with very slight speed which will make it very interesting.

#6 Major Gain (Graham / Roussell) has a slight edge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two solid workouts.  He has performed well over the distance and the Fair Grounds course.  He should take up a tracking position and explode into the stretch.
$1 WIN / $2 SHOW.

#1 At The Pulpit (Eramia / Lovell) will challenge with the highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and one credible workout.  This guy will also take up a tracking position and join the battle in the stretch run.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 Bold Front (Bridgmohan / McGee) is coming off a long layoff, but looks well prepped for this race with three robust workouts.  When last seen he ran a longer route earning a speed figure that fits well with the group.  He could come a closin' for a piece of the purse pie.

#9 Class President (Guidry / Asmussen) is another coming off an extended layoff and has put in the best workout tab prepping for his return to the turf.  He holds a victory at the distance with a comparable speed figure.  This guy should close well into a reasonable pace.

10 CENT Superfecta

#6 Major Gain, #1 At The Pulpit / #6, #1 / #4 Bold Front, #9 Class President / #4, #9.
