The Hooptie Handicapper picks low-level races at Parx, Will Rogers Downs, Indiana Grand


#5 Wham Bam Shrimp (8/1) examined nicely for her breeze fig’s. She has a 25-foot stride size and ended up in Group 2, which inserts nicely for this distance. With Liam’s Map as her dad and Tiznow as her grandfather, she has a implausible lineage. She just lately clocked a 1:00.9 work and her sire, Liam’s Map, was identified for being a pace horse. If the monitor will get nasty, entrance pace will bode nicely for her. On the detrimental facet, she was bought at public sale final spring for $25,000 to her present connections. Because of this her present possession has needed to endure a years’ price of stabling prices, veterinary payments, insurance coverage, and different miscellaneous bills. Performing some fast math, that involves roughly $14,000. Because of this they’ve roughly $40,000 into this filly, and at present, they’re placing her out for a $10,000 declare. This feels like, within the phrases of Jerry Garcia, ‘hassle forward, hassle behind.’ Michael Pino will saddle #2 Mo Social gathering (6/1) after claiming her on March 24. Michael is a superb 24% with first off the declare horses. She appears to be thriving at this barn with exercises of :36.2, :48.1 and :48.9. #2 Mo Social gathering (6/1) is a NY bred 3yo filly out of Uncle Mo, who was an early pace kind as nicely. Her momma, Girlaboutown, had a good profession, incomes $194,000 on ten begins with 4 wins and a spot. She gained two sprints and two routes, so it’s robust to inform. whether or not her children will fare higher at one or the opposite. Girlaboutown has one different foal, Get Round City, sired by Empire Maker, who gained on debut at Finger Lakes and raced three extra occasions with terrible outcomes. She is barely 4 years outdated, so we’ll in all probability see her at Finger Lakes once more this spring/summer time. #6 Shetalkstomuch (5/2) is the favourite as a result of she is taking a radical drop in school. She’s dropping from $30,000 to $10,000 at present. Apart from the category drop, I see no redeeming cause to guess on this horse. In her six races to this point, she has misplaced by an amassed 129 lengths. Her final exercise on March 15 was marginal at greatest. Her subsequent race on March 31 was terrible and I see no cause to guess on a horse who has proven little to no inspiration to compete. Cross. #7 Irish Jumper (4/1) on April 12, she went off at 6/1 odds on debut which seemingly was predicated upon her final exercise earlier than the race. That was a :48.6 and he or she put in a really boring effort. Again three weeks later, with the second dose of Lasix and the final greatest Equibase quantity, and a category drop, she will probably be an element on this race. It will not shock me if she gained. #11 Sensible Tart (15/1) how that title jogs my memory of the lady who represented my now ex spouse in our divorce. I digress. She has had two races, one on March 31, a 30K mcl, and one on 4/13 a 25K mcl. Each with dangerous outcomes. Right this moment she will get a category drop and first time Lasix. Search for her to shoot out of the gate and grow to be an outdoor issue. My selection for that is #10 Candy Savage (6/1) has proven recreation efforts in her final two. She received nosed on the wire on January 25, shelved till April 19, was handed late by #3 Misbehaving Girl (5/1) who ran her greatest race to this point and it’s uncertain she’ll get higher, and he or she’s again at present on the identical stage. She retains the companies of second main rider, Frankie Pennington. Submit place 10 will probably be a bonus at this distance as a result of it is going to enable her to calm down and make the most of her abilities within the stretch.
