Thursday, Turfday at Fair Grounds

We begin our horse racing weekend with a look at a splendid Turf Sprint down at Fair Grounds.

Fair Grounds Race 8 {5 1/2 furlongs~TURF~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}
A solid group of ten female horses will go to the grass in this allowance feature.  There is sufficient speed in the race to keep a quick pace.  Most in here have comparative speed numbers which should make for an exciting race.

#9 Minestrone (Graham / Stidham) might have a slight edge with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three solid workouts.  She is coming off a brief respite and should be able to deploy a pressing attack in great stride.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#1 Just Say Hey (Js. Campbell / McKeever) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one peaking workout.  She loves the Fair Grounds course and should be able to get on with a strong closing effort.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#4 Divine Providence (C. Hernandez / Alonzo) should be in the mix with the highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and one strength workout.  She will show speed in her first effort on the green.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#11 Wire Me Bessie (Clark / Smith) is an also eligible that could challenge mightily should she draw in.  She shows two terrific last out speed numbers and has put in two bullet workouts.  This gal should be part of the speedster contingent and could hold on for a piece.

#5 Jealousofmyboogie (Mena / Werner) should be in the hunt with the fourth highest speed number at the distance and four excellent workouts.  She is coming off an extended layoff and could use a nice pressing style to great advantage.

10 CENT Superfecta

#9 Minestrone / #1 Just Say Hey / #4 Divine Providence / #11 Wire Me Bessie, #5 Jealousofmyboogie.

Bankroll remains unchanged at $34.99.
