$1 play: 12/3/236/13 = $12
Race 8: (1) Stonebridge Art draws the inside advantage and that is big in this evenly matched field. (2) AE Western Ingot draws much better tonight and could finish better, too.
Race 9: (3) SM’s Terminator. Wrenn appears to fit this horse like a glove and Ronnie returns to the bike tonight.
Race 10: (2) SF Dynamite could do well upon returning to Cleveland. (3) Oakbrook Raider has three wins in a row and could also do well for his new connections. (6) Eagle Flight was a beaten favorite in his most recent performance; does not look to let the public down again this week.
Race 11: (1) Rojan Ross draws the rail, which may give her the slight nod over her competition. (3) Stormy Ghost just finished second from post seven and looks to be right there again tonight.
