Thursday Selections- April 2nd

Race 3: 7- Trucolorshininthru: Was about to win by open lengths when he broke for seemingly no reason, can avenge; 2- Bettor On Top: Had a strong second to start the year but then qualified, capable but questionable; 1- Adonis Bay: Strong third in his return, pole control; 5- Romeo Lover

Race 4: 4- Majestic Lad: Back to claimers following a much improved second, little to beat; 1- Alpine Dauntless: The rail should wake him up; 8- I’m A Pop Star: Was leaving from post eight when she broke two back, early speed to factor; 2- Missing Wink

Race 8: 1- Rock My Life: The race’s wild card in his local debut, shows enough promise to give him the nod; 5- Silverhill Delight: Paced 2:00 in all three local starts, that makes him a factor; 3- Here Comes Thunder: The last start was good but yet to finish better than third this year; 4- Gunning For Glory

Race 9: 1- Southern Swan: Fast second against tougher in last, cruises at a short price here; 7- That Man Of Mine: Strong third from post eight following a victory, looks next best; 9- Sucrose Hanover: Final quarters haven’t been good but the trip certainly will be; 2- Goose Creek

Race 10: 7- Bubba’s Jer Bear: Was attempting to leave when he broke, finds a soft spot to thrive here; 3- Teacher Pat: The qualifier was weak but showed promise as a freshman; 1- Floyd Hanover: solid building block start when third in last, pole; 2- Maggie’s Brand

Race 11: 5- American Island: Dobson’s choice following a win in his local debut; 1- Glory Beach: Simply a seconditis horse, it’s a trend likely to continue; 9- Mister Skitter: Nightmare trip last week, in a better position here for minor spoils; 2- Dobson

Race 12: 3- Buckeye Baddler: Moves down and in to get the nod; 4- Regalwood: Has been roughed up early in two straight starts, bound for better; 8- Putnams Attack: Fast thirds in two straight, no doubt the one to beat but the post could get him beat; 1- Peterson
