Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  FOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 26 AT BALMORAL

Best bet: Youroldlov-eletter ((3rd race)

First Post-7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW $1,250 LAST 5, F&M, PURSE $2,900:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

5  L-Moon Bay Dancer, Oosting  2-1  8 5 6

1  L-Twilight Delight, Dick  7-2  *3 4 3

4  L-First To Arrive, Husted  4-1  *6 2 3

3  L!Easy On The Chips, De. Magee  9-2  10 5 4

7  L-RJ’s Irish Lassie, Seekman  8-1  4 7 6

2  L!Sand Taryn, T. Warren  10-1  7 6 7

8  L!Osage, P. Curtin  10-1  8 3 7

6  L-Gabrielle Nicole, T. Curtin  15-1  5 7 8

MOON BAY DANCER has had some past success at Balmoral and might again. Oosting used to drive her when she raced for trainer Perry Smith. TWILIGHT DELIGHT comes off a good try and may power past and end her losing streak. FIRST TO ARRIVE is a possibility, especially with the cover she lacked.

SECOND: TROT, COND, NW 2 OR 3 RACES, PURSE $5,000:

7  L-Bands Alexis, T. Warren  2-1  *1 1 2

5  L+Mayfair Sophie, De. Magee  5-2  *1 1 *8

3  L-A Local Band, Oosting  3-1  3 2 6

2  Agent Booth, Ri. Finn  5-1  2 4 10

1  K R B Four, Seekman  6-1  5 6 8

4  Hooray Wisconsin, P. Curtin  20-1  6 6 4

6  L-Powerful Force, T. Curtin  25-1  7 8 6

BANDS ALEXIS is 2-for-2 on Lasix and may clear to the front and win another. MAYFAIR SOPHIE bet down, stayed flat, and romped. Filly may handle this hike. A LOCAL BAND has improved and is a threat to clear the speed tonight.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $3,300:

5  +Youroldlov-eletter, Carpenter  9-5  1 2 4

6  Bubbala, De Long  9-2  5 8 8

4  L-Lynrae Jazmin, Beyer  4-1  2 7 7

1  L-Princess Jovenita, De. Magee  5-1  8 5 5

3  L-Msrichstyle, Leonard  6-1  3 5 8

9  Soft Velvet, T. Curtin  10-1  4 4 9

8  L-Dawn’s Delight, Oosting  20-1  7 2 10

2  L_Sammi’s Song, T. Warren  22-1  7 5 9

7  L-Be My Escape, P. Curtin  30-1  10 6 7

YOUROLDLOV-ELETTER steps up but she’s the sharpest distaffer in the field and can win right back. BUBBALA got stuck inside in last couple. A favorable journey makes her a threat. LYNRAE JAZMIN could also get a slice of these gimmicks.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $2,900:

7  Little Man Morand, Oosting  9-5  *3 7 *3

8  L!Speed Racer, T. Curtin  3-1  2 10 dnf

6  L-Past The Shooter, Ri. Finn  4-1  4 4 5

1  !Diamond  Desire Ivy, P. Curtin  8-1  10 7 7

2  L!V And C, R. Leonard  8-1  5 4 7

3  L-Arlo Gram, Carpenter  10-1  5 7 4

5  Finntastic, J. Finn  12-1  5 7 1

4  !Upthechrage, De. Magee  15-1  9 5 5

LITTLE MAN MORAND is a beaten favorite who may not be headed this time. SPEED RACER sidelined since June but he did have an encouraging qualifier. PAST THE SHOOTER gain early position only to end-up locked in. He could be better tonight.

FIFTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, ICF, PURSE $4,000:

6  L-Babyshoebuyer, Oosting  2-1  3 8 3

8  Joyful Game, De. Magee  5-2  1 2 *1

3  Lizzabelle, T. Warren  9-2  5 4 5

4  L-Stage Star, Seekman  6-1  4 7 7

7  L-Ms Solongbyebye, Leonard  8-1  2 6 4

2  L-Casino Comp, Beyer  8-1  5 4 8

1  L-Iamlovedbytheking, P. Curtin  20-1  9 6 7

5  L-Red Lace Skiives, Anderson  30-1  5 10 5

9  L+Mearl Finn, De Long  50-1  9 8 8

BABYSHOEBUYER had a game try after a needed start and could get the job down this time. JOYFUL GAME has strung together a series of solid races and may bringing home season win No. 13 tonight. LIZZABELLE can go out and in another up-close trip and be a factor.

SIXTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW $1,250 LAST 5, PURSE $2,700:

5  L!Really Lucky, De. Magee  2-1  2 4 5

3  L!Nip Pan Tuck, Seekman  4-1  7 8 10

6  L!Larry’s Place, T. Curtin  6-1  5 6 6

7  L!Jitterbug Jack, P. Curtin  6-1  7 7 4

2  L!Look Ma No Hands, C. Leonard  6-1  7 8 10

1  L-Hurricane Finale, Carpenter  5-1  6 8 7

1a  L-Sporty Levi, Beyer  5-1  3 5 7

4  L-Three New Dawns, T. Warren  12-1  7 9 7

8  L!LD’s Dash, De Long  15-1  8 4 9

REALLY LUCKY is getting sharper and appears to have found the right spot to get a long overdue win. NIP PAN TUCK finished with some pace and he is in easier tonight. LARRY’S PLACE is in easier and can be considered tonight.

SEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

5  L-Ladybones, C. Leonard  5-2  2 9 7

7  Our Miss Lily, Oosting  2-1  *1 *2 4

8  !La Semana Hanover, R. Warren  9-2  6 3 3

2  L-Dontmesswithangel, Smolin  8-1  8 7 2

6  L-Camille Rose, T. Curtin  8-1  3 8 3

4  L-Thedayyouhavemade, T. Warren  10-1  4 *3 3

3  L-Seekin For Glamour, Husted  12-1  5 3 4

1  L-Nashville Kitty, Seekman  12-1  5 2 2

LADYBONES could go out and get another up-close journey and maybe this tonight, rally past. OUR MISS LILY has to be caught again. She hasn’t in 3 of her last 4 starts. LA SEMENA HANOVER looks like a contender in his local debut.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $3,300:

8  L!Flying Rocket, T. Warren  4-1  4 7 8

5  L-Conzo, Anderson  3-1  1 3 3

2  L!Blue River, C. Leonard  7-2  4 2 2

3  Well Dune, Oosting  9-2  2 7 4

10  Ben N Sal, De Long  6-1  *2 2 5

1  Glided Towards Me, R. Warren  12-1  5 3 8

9  L-Standingartfection, Beard  12-1 6x 5 7

4  +Vital Terror, P. Curtin  15-1  6 4 6

6  L-Wild Deuce, De. Magee  30-1  7 2 7

7  L-Buffalo Joe, Beyer  30-1  7 2 7

FLYING ROCKET looks well placed by his new barn and could be the pacer too beat. CONZO made it look easy and if he races back to that effort he’ll likely revisit this winner’s circle. BLUE RIVER is back down to where he was a major player at Balmoral and can be again.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,100:

6  Our Miss Special, T. Warren  3-1  7 5 *3

7  L-Anightwithwilma, Oosting  4-1  4 3 5

1  L-Get The Terror, Seekman  6-1  4 8 4

9  L-Mind Eraser, Carpenter  5-1  8 2 8

4  L-Dee Dee Sage, Beyer  6-1  6 7 7

10  L-Cole Blue, Smolin  10-1  6 8 3

5  L-Phoebic Princess, Wilfong  12-1  5 3 5

3  L-Miss Kelley Lynne, C. Leonard  12-1  3 2 5

8  L-Odds On Topaz, De. Magee  15-1  3 3 9

2  L-Pierce My Heart, T. Curtin  15-1  10 10 6

OUR MISS SPECIAL failed first up in last two at Maywood. She’s back on the track where she’s been best. ANIGHTWITHWILMA got hung out the first half at Maywood. A happier trip may see her get a rare victory. GET THE TERROR could get a journey up close where filly would be a danger.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,900:

7  L-Russell L, De. Magee  9-2  2 1 4

6  L-Woop D Do Bazzle, Oosting  7-2  4 7 2

2  L-AJ Get’s The Money, Smolin  4-1  3 6 3

9  L-St Lads Kingpin, T. Warren  6-1  1 6 8

3  L-Stryker, Seekman  6-1  3 2 7

5  L!Once A Cheater, C. Leonard  6-1  3 *4 6

8  L-Parked Onda Street, R. Warren  12-1  *1 9 4

1  L+Rocket Sog, De Long  15-1  1 6 3

4  L-Gencor’s Ztam, Carpenter  20-1  5 6 3

10  LL!Tell Steinam, R. Leonard  25-1  7 9 2

RUSSELL L might pick-up the cover he lacked and win this open race. WOOP D DO BAZZLE comes off a good first over try and looks like the pacer too beat. AJ GET’S THE MONEY can get command again and maybe this time not give way.

ELEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

1  Val’s Way, C. Leonard  5-2  *2 2 2

7  Indian Creek Katie, Smolin  4-1  4 3 3

2  L-Allusive Annie, Oosting  9-2  6 8 *1

6  L-Meet Me Tonight, Seekman  5-1  3 *1 9

8  L-Earthly Desire, Seekman  10-1  3 6 2

3  L-Western Boudoir, P. Curtin  10-1  1 6 5

10  L-One Loud Ding, Carpenter  12-1  4 7 3

4  L-Peacelovepace, Wilfong  15-1  7 4 8

5  L-C J’s Terror, Husted  15-1  6 4 *4

9  L-Always Talking, De. Magee  20-1  7 7 1

VALS WAY has been the bridesmaid the last three times. This favorable post change could help her step up to the altar. INDIAN CREEK KATIE got shuffled out of contention. Mare is a danger here for hew new barn. ALLUSIVE ANNIE could benefit from a start over this track.
