Wednesday Full Card Analysis

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 1

Post: 2:30 PM ET; Purse: $12,000 Claiming, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 7

  • #7 COMPRESSED ENERGY (9-5) should be competitive today based on the horse’s speed & power rating. This one drops in class and cuts back in distance.
  • #4 PASSING IMAGE (3-1) is proven as a good bet to at least hit the board under today’s distance and surface conditions. This one goes out for Aaron West who is 20% off this type of layoff.
  • #2 JUSTA DOLL (6-1) figures to be part of the early pace and has to be considered a danger. She’s been close at this level before.

Selections: 4-7-2

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 2

Post: 3:00 PM ET; Purse: $20,000 Maiden Claiming, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 9

  • #8 BARONNE (6-1) has breeding that says this one should be a major player. The horse is dropping for Tom Amoss who is 26% maiden special to claimer. He was a speed and fade against tougher last out. This one feels like a steal.
  • #3 NOBEL (2-1) has been improving and will give bettors a chance to see if the Gulfstream tapeta translates to Indy as well as Turfway has.
  • #2 RONNIE’S VICE (6-1) merits consideration in this spot given edges in stamina & pace numbers.
  • #9 RACARINO (5-2) should be competitive today based on the horse’s speed figures and recent form.
  • #6 INTEND (8-1) was at one point was fast enough to best this group early. Maybe he can find that again today.

Selections: 8-3-2-9-6

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 3

Post: 3:30 PM ET; Purse: $18,500 Claiming, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 9

  • #7 BEIRUT BEAUTY (3-1) is in with a great chance based on the horse’s stamina & power rating.
  • #5 SWEET GINGER (20-1) set the pace in the last race on synthetic which can be unkind to front runners. I like this one on the cut back to be dangerous on the front end.
  • #3 CAIRO DRIVER (6-1) gets Deshawn Parker in the saddle who is winning at a 16% clip in 2022.
  • #4 DIAMOND LYDIAMARIE (6-1) should be competitive today based on the horse’s speed & form.

Selections: 7-5-3-4

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 4

Post: 4:00 PM ET; Purse: $36,000 Allowance, 1 Mile on Dirt; Entries: 8

  • #7 AMERICAN PURE (4-1) has been running on synthetic but has improved in each of the first three starts for Brad Cox. Pedroza Jr. is in the irons and he was a mainstay at the top of the jocks standings last season.
  • #5 POLAR WIND (3-1) should be competitive based on the overall power rating which has it tops in the group.
  • #1 RED FLAG ALERT (5-2) has been declining in form but those numbers are still better than a lot of these.
  • #3 SLIM SLOW SLIDER (4-1) is getting better and has some of the best early pace numbers.

Selections: 7-5-1-3

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 5

Post: 4:30 PM ET; Purse: $38,000 Allowance, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 10

  • #10 LEXI SUN (5-2) was dramatically improving in each of her first three starts. She has permission to move forward as a three year old and that could make her tough to beat.
  • #6 LASHES (12-1) was close last out at the level and now cuts back in distance which may encourage a bit more speed.
  • #8 SAVEDTHEBESTFORLAST (6-1) has the late closing kick if the pace gets crazy hot up front.
  • #7 KISSES SO SWEET (12-1) is a trainer play as Klopp is dangerous in these races. The horse has shown speed in the morning and maybe can show some here as well.

Selections: 10-6-8-7

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 6

Post: 5:00 PM ET; Purse: $36,000 Allowance, 5 1/2 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 10

  • #3 KAELY’S SISTER (7-2) has a great shot in the race given the speed & class.
  • #10 BELLARIFIC (12-1) is proven as a good bet to at least hit the board under today’s distance and surface conditions.
  • #6 BIG IF TRUE (12-1) has been in some of the toughest races of these ones. The figures are a bit light, but a little softer field could wake this one up.
  • #7 WILD TAPIT (10-1) will get Pompell in the saddle. The last 9 rides he’s given this one have all been check cashers with 1 win, 1 second, 3 thirds and 4 fourths.

Selections: 3-10-6-7 (Best Bet: #3 KAELY’S SISTER)

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 7

Post: 5:30 PM ET; Purse: $36,000 Maiden Special Weight, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 10

  • #8 CIBOLO (2-1) put up a solid number against a good field on debut. A little improvement here could put this on in the winner’s circle.
  • #1 ROOKWOOD (8-1) is in with a great chance based on the horse’s class & form.
  • #7 FOR MOMA (5-1) gets first time blinkers for Greenhill who is 13% with the move. Parker staying aboard is a good sign.
  • #6 PARTY BOY FLOYD (15-1) will hit the track for the first time for a trainer who connects at 16% with debut runners. The dam has thrown 3 previous winners in four foals.

Selections: 8-1-7-6

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 8

Post: 6:00 PM ET; Purse: $34,000 Maiden Special Weight, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 14

  • #9 VIOLENT OUTBURST (5-2) merits consideration in this spot given edges in speed & race flow.
  • #8 MI CRESCENDO (5-1) is a Bayern off spring. The sire throws debut winners at 18%. Contreras is also 17% with first time starters.
  • #11 PEACH COBBLER (4-1) is a breeding play though the 11 post is a tough draw for such an inexperienced runner.
  • #7 DREAM STREAK (12-1) is class dropping, cut backing, and surface changing. With some of the top connections on the circuit I’d say that’s worth a stab.

Selections: 14-8-9-11

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 9

Post: 6:30 PM ET; Purse: $38,000 Allowance, 5 Furlongs on Dirt; Entries: 10

  • #8 POETIC VERSE (4-1) is proven as a good bet to at least hit the board under today’s distance and surface conditions.
  • #5 TAPPIN INTO SUMMER (3-1) is a major player in today’s race edging the field in several key handicapping factors including speed & pace numbers.
  • #4 SPLASH OF TONIC (4-1) will likely have the stamina to outlast these in the final jumps of the race.
  • #1 SWEET JUSTICE (12-1) will go out for her first run under Randy Klopp’s training. Klopp crushed the opening part of the meet last year.
  • #2 MI ESTRELLA (10-1) has run 1 bad race under the driving of Marcelino Pedroza Jr. At 10-1 this one is a nice price play.

Selections: 8-5-4-1-2

Horseshoe Indianapolis Race 10

Post: 7:00 PM ET; Purse: $17,000 Maiden, 300 Yards on Dirt; Entries: 12
