Risen Star at Fair Grounds - Saturday, February 7, 2009

Race 9

Another Derby Trail race for 3 year olds going 8.5 furlongs, and a very good betting race.

7 Giant Oak looks best off a layoff, gets Prado, and working very well. One to beat. Good closing and final time. Beat Captain Candyman Can who won a stake in the last week or two.

IF SCRATCHED 6 Friesan Fire beat me in the Lecomte at a mile, comes back, Larry Jones trained, and inside which is good. Doesn't close as well so will be with the pace likely throughout. FAIR GROUNDS SHOWED SCRATCH EARLIER, NOW NOT SURE.

2 Indygo Mountain was the near favorite in the Lecomte, hit the gate and bobbled. Another chance, inside, and likely with the leaders. Looks to fade.

8 Dumar is an Asmussen/Bridgmohan, stepping up, tied for best closing time, good chance to be in the money.

10 Soul Warrior another Asumssen but gets P. Val. Other best closing time, stepping up from a maiden win.

New bet after scratch:

$5 Exbox: 7 with 2-8-10

$1 Tri: 7 / 2-8-10-11 / 2-8-10-11 and

$1 Tri: 2-8-10-11 / 7 /2-8-10-11

Total $54

My bet:

$2 Exbox: 7 with 2-6-8-10

$1 Tri: 6-7 / 2-6-7-8-10 / 2-6-7-8-10

Total $40

Good luck!
