A Great Northwest Superfecta Sunday

On this Superfecta Sunday we journey up to the Northwest to take in a fantastic grade three mile race.

Emerald Downs Race 8 {Longacre Mile~G3~1 mile~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A tremendously talented group of eleven will go to the gate in this annual graded event. There is sufficient speed to make the pace roll quickly. Speed numbers are very close creating a highly competitive mile race. It should be a very exciting race. Our task is to hook together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#8 Point Piper (M. Gutierrez / Hollendorfer) should have the edge with the highest last out speed number and four strong peaking workouts. This lad is coming out of a longer grade two route and the pace should set him up for a supreme closing run. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$3 SHOW.

#1 Stryker Phd (Mawing / Ross) should be the home track favorite with a couple of good last out speed numbers and two speedy workouts. He will need the pace to launch his ferocious closing kick. This lad has an impressive 100% in the money record at the distance from eight starts.

#4 O B Harbor (Zunino / Markle) is another home track favorite with the second highest last out speed number a longer route and two high powered workouts. This guy loves his track and will be seeking his fifth win in a row.

#5 Alert Bay (T. Baze / Wright) comes up from Del Mar in attempt to take home some purse money. He holds the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer route and two superb peaking workouts. This millionaire has already hit the board in his only race over this track.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)
