Good Evening and Welcome To
CHARLES TOWN Racetrack
Our Feature Tonight:
Tonite being held at 1 1/4 Miles
We've had Several Scratches due to the International Airport--Volcanic Ash Problem that has caused a Chain Reaction of cancellations globally
This has left us with a Field of 7
The Horses are entering the track for the Post Parade
Leading them on in PP #1
A Talented Stallion who has not been consistent this year and has struggled with various track conditions
He ran an outstanding race 2 starts ago but then faltered in his last time out
He is very capable of running a dynamic race but his fans never know when that might be
He goes off at: 10/1
In Gate #2
A Super-Sonic Filly who fights for every placing in every race!
She is tenacious nearing the wire which she proved in her last start as she JUST
WON by A Nostril Flare!
She Can Take The Early Lead and play Catch-Me-If-U-Can
Hang back way off the leaders and close like an Express Train all the way to the win ~ OR ~ Photo Finish
She is the Favorite today: 5/2
In PP #3
A very Game Filly who is a threat in any race she runs, even when it appears she can never close fast enough to catch the leaders >> She Does!
Her last race was a close Photo for Win
in which she came up just Short by a nose She goes off at: 4/1
In Gate #4
A Stallion who has shown Determination and Versatility in his last 2 Races and is a Force to be dealt with every time he runs
He Just lost the Place Spot in a super tight photo finish last time out by a nose
He leaves at: 7/2
In PP #5
A Super Classy Filly who usually is either in the Winner's Circle Or in a very close Photo Finish
Her last 2 Races were a Win and a 2nd
She rarely is out of the money
She goes off at: 3/1
In Gate #6
An Older Stallion who has his moments of Brilliance making his fans remember his Outstanding Style of Last Year
He showed vast improvement in his last race at a shorter distance than tonight's event at 1 1/4 M
So its a question mark whether the Longer Distance will prove to be tiring for him or not
He will leave at: 12/1
In PP #7
A Feisty Filly whose Shenanigans in the Post Parade as she Dances her way to the starting gate, often take their toll when the Real Running begins!
Her last 2 Starts have been very lack luster but she has been known to bounce like a red rubber ball and is capable of surprising her fans with a Win
Even her connections never know which way it will go on any given day!
She was very Fractious in the Post Parade and may have left her best energy in the Gate!
She leaves at: 15/1
