Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 FOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22 AT BALMORAL

Best bet: Val’s Way (7th race)

First Post-7:10 pm

FIRST: TROT, CARDINAL STAKE PREP, ICF 2-YEAR-OLD MALES, PURSE $5,000:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

5  RT Habenero, Da. Magee  3-2  1 2 2

4  Jake Quaider, Leonard  2-1  1 3 *2

3  +Captain Greedy, J D Finn  4-1  9 4 3

6  Powerful Above All, T. Warren  5-1  *1 8 4

1  Southern Special, Seekman  10-1  2 7 9

2  Arcs Conquest, Anderson  12-1  3 5 7

R T HABENERO peaked at the right time in the Lincoln Land. He could go out and win another. JAKE QUAIDER got pushed back in last before finishing strong. He’s a danger. CAPTAIN GREEDY is back to Balmoral where he’s had some nice races.

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

7  L-Duneside Louie, Carpenter  3-1  2 3 6

3  Little Man Morand, T. Warren  7-2  8 2 3

4  L-Here’s Tootsie, R. Warren  4-1  2 5 8

1a  L-Blackjack Rivndel, Curtin  9-2  5 2 3

1  L-No More Terror, Leonard  9-2 6 8 10

6  L-Past The Shooter, RS Finn  8-1  6 4 5

5  Imastarlightdancer, Smolin  8-1  8 3 7

8  L-Park Lane Scooter, De. Magee  12-1  6 9 4

9  LL-Boot Scootin Boogie, Fox  15-1  4 7 7

2  LL!Super Scooter, De Long  15-1  9 7 4

DUNESIDE LOUIE hasn’t been far off and may get the job done this time. LITTLE MAN MORAND could have an easier time on the front making him a threat to go all the way. HERE’S TOOTSIE changed tactics and came on nicely. He’s a consideration.

THIRD: TROT, COND, NW 1 (F & M 2), PURSE $4,000:

5  Bands Alexis, T. Warren  9-5  *2 2 2

8  Pythia, Da. Magee  4-1  6 3 3

6  Valley Photo, Wilfong  7-2  2 4 7

1  Vacations Pride, Smolin  6-1  5 8 5

3  +Riverside Gold, Curtin  6-1  2 3 3

7  Polars Big Spender, Leonard  8-1  9 5 4

2  !Vick Valor, Hiteman  12-1  4 5 5

4  Tricia’s Banner, D. Price  25-1  3 4 6

BANDSALEXIS is trying hard for that elusive first win. Filly may go out and get it tonight. PYTHIA comes off a wide mile. Trainer now turns over her lines to Magee. VALLEY PHOTO came on well in her needed initial start. Consider.

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

4  L-Always A Jewel, Gillespie  3-1  3 2 3

10  Youroldlov-eletter, Smolin  7-2  *2 *1 2

5  !Princess Joventina, Da. Magee  9-2  10 5 5

8  !Megyn Hotspur, Hiteman  5-1  7 *3 7

6  !Happy Times Three, Seekman  6-1  8 8 2

9  L-Eloquence, Leonard  12-1  8 7 7

7  L!B C’s Fancy Dancer, Anderson  12-1  7 1 x

1  Going Sumwhere, Krueger  15-1  4 6 10

3  L-Sweet Alyssa, Curtin  20-1  7 9 7

2  Ocean Annie, CA Finn  20-1  3 x x

ALWAYS A JEWEL always in the thick of it. Maybe she can hold on for an overdue win. PRINCESS JOVENTINA drops and Magee takes back her lines. She’s a threat. MEGAN HOTSPUR disappointed at Maywood. She could be coming on well here.

FIFTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, F & M, PURSE $3,600:

5  Lizzabelle, Hiteman  5-2  2 1 7

9  L-Park Lane Crystal, R. Warren  3-1  5 10 7

7  L-Western Boudoir, Curtin  4-1  3 3 2

2  L-Wild Berry Muffler, De. Magee  8-1  7 6 1

3  Indian Creek Katie, Wingard  10-1  4 3 7

10  L-Ms Solongbyebye, T. Warren  10-1  4 9 5

8  L-One Loud Ding, Krueger  12-1  2 9 5

4  L-Iamlovedbytheking, Smolin  15-1  5 8 7

1  L-C J’s Terror, Gregory  15-1  10 3 10

6  L-Red Lace Skivvies, Anderson  30-1  9 9 8

LIZZABELLE performing well in conditioned-claimers and looks like the logical choice. PARK LANE CRYSTAL comes off a wide mile. Mare is a danger with a favorable journey. WESTERN BOUDOIR is racing well with Curtin and may get up in time tonight.

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

1  L-Dave’s Art, Da. Magee  2-1  2 *4 *1

2  +Party’s Gold, Carpenter  5-2  1 *1 *2

8  L-Pip’s Quatro, Seekman  5-1  3 8 7

5  L-Holy McMoses, Hiteman  6-1  7 8 5

4  L-Eden Way, De. Magee  8-1  *8 6 5

7  L-Wildartiscape, De Long  8-1  6 9 *6

6  L-Standingartfection, Smolin  12-1  10 2 7

3  Vital Terror, Curtin  25-1  5 6 8

DAVE’S ART found room too late. He could be in better position tonight to get the job done. PARTY’S GOLD passed up a lot of horses. Steps up but moves inside. PIP’S QUATRO is a possibility if he isn’t too far back. Consider.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $3,300:

6  !Val’s Way, Leonard  3-2  7 7 4

2  L+Sand In My Bikini, Carpenter  7-2  1 4 1

4  Sister’s Keeper, Hiteman  4-1  4 2 5

7  Indy Heatoftheday, Curtin  10-1  4 6 3

1  L-Box You In, Smolin  10-1  5 8 5

8  L-Towne Believer, De. Magee  12-1  9 5 6

3  L-Bonjour Madam, Da. Magee  12-1  10 3 6

5  L-Towne’sbrightlight, Avenatti  15-1  8 8 2

9  L-Be My Escape, Wingard  25-1  6 9 9

VAL’S WAY has been chasing better and now drops down to a very winnable situation. SAND IN MY BIKINI held off easier but if she’s left alone on the front-end she may do the same to these distaffers. SISTER’S KEEPER can race up-close again and maybe do more with her good position tonight.

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

5  L!Pretty Place, De. Magee  9-2  7 7 6

3  L-Get The Terror, Seekman  3-1  3 1 5

4  L-Parklane Glitter, Wilfong  7-2  *5 1 6

9  +Sandcastle Girl, Hiteman  6-1  *1 *2 *5

10  L-Fox Valley Flora, Smolin  8-1  3 1 6

8  Financial Effort, Da. Magee  8-1  4 4 6

1  +April May Dune, Leonard  12-1  9 7 5

7  L+Blue Gem, Carpenter  12-1  10 5 5

2  L-Miss Pat Weisar, T. Warren  15-1  6 5 4

6  L+Stardom Bound, RS Finn  25-1  5 8 6

PRETTY PLACE drops with the shift to Balmoral and looks well placed. GET THE TERROR got into high gear too late. Filly looks like horse to beat. PARKLANE GLITTER didn’t do well in the slop as the public’s choice. Filly can be better here.

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

6  L-Kitty O’Brien, Curtin  5-2  *2 1 7

1  !Our Miss Lily, T. Warren  7-2  2 9 *1

5  L-Alexibray, Seekman  9-2  2 3 *3

8  L-Osage, Krueger  6-1  3 2 4

3  L-Dontmesswithangel, Da. Magee  8-1  4 4 8

9  L-Camille Tose, Hiteman  12-1  9 8 1

10  L-Sand Taryn, Anderson  10-1  1 6 6

7  +I’ve Got Feeling, Husted  15-1  1 9 7

4  L-Walkinthemoonlite, Carpenter  20-1  10 10 10

2  L-Mearl Finn, Leonard  20-1  8 9 10

KITTY O’BRIEN dropped a close one racing first up. She may get past tonight. OUR MISS LILY takes a big drop after missing 2 and 1/2 months. She’s from a winning barn. ALEXIBRAY has been strictly a Maywood horse. Can her speed hold up on this track?
